Hans Zimmer’s RadioPhonic Synthesizer, ‘The Ultimate Analogue Modular System’, Now Available

At Superbooth 2024, AJH Synth is introducing Hans Zimmer’s RadioPhonic Synth – an all-in-one Eurorack synthesizer that they describe as “the ultimate analogue modular system.”

Here’s what they have to say about it:

“The RadioPhonic System was specially commissioned to take pride of place in the new Radiophonic workshop which Hans will be recreating soon, back at its original site in the Maida Vale Studio, London. We are calling this amazing system ‘The RadioPhonic’, in honor of this accolade.

From its inception in 1958, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop has played a huge part in the history of electronic music. In the early days audio tape would be cut and spliced into sound effects and theme music which was used in BBC television and radio programs.

In the 1960’s, synthesizers were added to the arsenal of instruments, and the EMS VCS 3 and Synthi 100 were two of the earliest synthesizers used there. The VCS 3 holds a very special place in Hans Zimmer’s heart, as it was the very first synthesizer that he ever owned and the beautiful American Walnut and Cherry wood case of the RadioPhonic deliberately channels the VCS3 “Putney” case design. However, the range of modules included takes the sonic possibilities way beyond that of the larger EMS Synthi 100 ‘Delaware’ system, which also saw so much use at the Radiophonic Workshop.

Hans has very graciously allowed us to produce a limited number of exact recreations of the RadioPhonic synth, and each will be individually numbered.”

Pricing and Availability:

The Hans Zimmer RadioPhonic Synth is launching at Superbooth and is priced at GBP 12,500.00 plus VAT.

  1. Oh, just 12,500? How about 30K, or is that reserved for vintage Jupiter-8s? How about 100K? The sky is the limit, whether you’re selling mega synths or mega yachts! It can’t help but feel concocted, sometimes.

    Then again, I’m a slab synth/software goober, so I can’t properly relate to modulars like a Big Fan. I know what *most* modules do, but if that’s all I had to play, I’d just ram my head through it. The RadioPhonic is a beautiful thing with no doubt few limitations. One of them is that I get cross-eyed looking at it. 😛
