Synclavier Regen Synth Debuts At Synthplex 2022

At Synthplex 2022, being held October 27-30 in Burbank, CA, Synclavier introduced a new hardware synthesizer, the Regen.

The Synclavier Regen offers the power of the Synclavier II DSP engine, enhanced and optimized. The Regen features a color screen, ‘liquid-like’ touch controls, high fidelity audio output, paired with a powerful synth engine.

Regen supports additive synthesis for full control of 24 harmonics. But they’ve also added subtractive synthesis features to the Synclavier synthesis engine. And you can use samples for your carrier waveform. And these different waveform generators can be mixed. You have up to 12 partials to use in your sound design creation, with crossfades assignable to inputs such as velocity, pressure, mod wheel, and of course, keyboard.

Regen also comes loaded with content to get you inspired fast. There are over 250 timbre presets including 6 newly-commissioned artist timbre libraries. On top of that, there are 2 exclusive sample libraries with over 300 new samples and one mega library with over 700 original samples from the NED era.

Beyond the presets, the Synclavier Regen offers deep sound design possibilities. You can layer up to 12 partials with different sound generators (additive, subtractive, samples) then apply dynamic effects per partial. Polyphonic aftertouch and MPE is fully-supported and there’s a sophisticated modulators section where you can apply responsive curves to properties driven by pressure, velocity, mod wheel position, and so on.


  • 255 Regen timbre presets
  • 700+ samples of royalty-free factory content
  • Additive waveforms, subtractive waveform generator and multi-sample patchlists
  • 12 partials to build your sounds.

  • Senstive liquid-like touch swiper and 12 selector pads.

  1. well it’s a looker, not sure about the sound, not a retro fan. Had it been priced close to an elektron digitakt/digitone i’d get one buy 2500eu?? No way.

  2. I really like the purity of the sounds. They are extremely clean and have an excellent digital sheen to them. It would fun to see what Wendy Carlos or Tomita would have done with this.

  3. no – someone should remake a modern version of the Technos Acxel instead – and make it do what it was supposed to, to begin with

  4. For a much more affordable alternative that still has deep FM, check out the PreenFM2 or PreenFM3. They tend to sell out a lot because they’re excellent little synths for a few hundred bucks, mostly because the developer gives his time to this project for free.

  5. This does not sound remotely exciting or different. The format physically is interesting but the sound really is no diffrent to any other synth.

  6. too bad it wasn’t a lighted button box to match the original Synclavier control layout to go with the Knob and iOS app. I would have bought that in a second – I hate pushing graphics on a tablet; it’s completely lacking in haptic delights like a stale baloney sandwich. I would mount the box and the knob and a weighted MIDI keybed in a nice DIY wooden enclosure; now that would have been cool.
