NAMM: Eowave KOMA Bass Synthesizer Announced – full specs

January 18, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

As reported on last week Eowave released a teaser for their new synth – well here we are with all the details :-)

Eowave KOMA Bass Synthesizer, an all-new analog synth – inspired by classic synths from the 1980s.

The KOMA offers the possibility to mix four different waveforms (saw, square, sub, noise). The unit’s 24 dB lowpass filter is also inspired by classical filters from the ’80s, and to this particular sound of the era, Eowave added a touch of modernity with new controls and parameters. The KOMA boasts a 16-step sequencer with four rows: one row for the notes and three that are freely assignable to a parameter of your choice.

The price of the KOMA, as listed on eowave.com, is 599 EUR (approximately $762).

Here are the KOMA specs:

      Oscillator Section
      Main Oscillator:
    • Main VCO with 2 waveforms (square and saw), plus Sub (square) and Noise
    • The pulsewidth of the square waveform can be modulated by ENV2 or by the LFO
    • The main oscillator can be transposed up to 3 octaves
    • The main oscillator frequency can be modulated by the LFO or by ENV3
    • Glide
    • Mix of the 4 waveforms
      Sub:
    • Sub (sub can be 1 or 2 octaves below the master freq)
    • DESYNC mode enables you to desynchronize and detune the Sub from the main oscillator
    • In DESYNC mode, the Sub can be at the same frequency than the main oscillator or 1 octave below
      Filter Section:
    • 24 dB resonant lowpass filter for a classical ’80s sound
    • Variable cutoff and resonance
    • The filter can be modulated by ENV2, KB, LFO
    • External audio with a trimmer to feed the filter
      LFO Section:
    • The LFO has 8 waveforms (triangle, ramp up, ramp down, square, random, digital noise, staircase up, staircase down)
    • Variable speed
    • The LFO modulates the VCO, VCF, or PWM
    • External MIDI clock synchronization
      ENV1, ENV2, and ENV3:
    • ENV1 and ENV2: these 2 envelopes ADSR modulate respectively the amplitude and the filter
    • Attack goes from 2 ms to 10 s
    • ENV3: envelope Attack / Decay modulates the VCO
      
VCA Section:
    • VCA is affected to ENV1
      Memory:
    • 4 Banks of 64 sound presets (SAV PRST, SAVE PAT)
    • 4 Banks of 64 patterns
    • 256 Sound presets
    • 256 Patterns
      
Sequencer:
    • 16-Step sequencer with 16 LED
    • 4 Sections: 1 section for gate and note and 3 sections freely assignable to any parameter of the front panel
    • Random feature
    • Adjustable tempo
    • You can transpose the sequencer via an external MIDI keyboard
    • Each line can have a different number of steps to create complex modulations
    • Chain up to 8 sequences
    • Shuffle feature
    • External MIDI clock synchronization
      
Connections:
  • Audio In
  • Audio Out
  • MIDI In
  • USB (for software update and MIDI I/O)

More information on the Eowave KOMA will be released at a later time, hopefully this week at Winter NAMM 2012. Keep up with Eowave at the company’s Web site, eowave.com.
