Sneak preview of the new Sugar Bytes CYCLOP synth

June 1, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Cyclop is the new bass synthesizer from Sugar Bytes.
Check it out!

It’s a monophonic monster, armed to the teeth with jaw dropping effects and wobblier than a jelly on a space hopper. CYCLOP is the scratch-looping, sample-mashing, sub-generating, harmonic-splicing mothership of the twisted bass alliance and it’s landing on your desktop soon. With masses of new sounds for you audio-junkies, from screaming analog syncs through brutal FM sounds to scintillating spectral shimmers. The integrated sampler also works as wavetable synth and pitch transformer for creating unbelievable and disturbing monster voices. CYCLOP is more than massively loaded with features: 10 incredible filters, unique wobble generator, feedback processor, 3 overdrives and an effects sequencer. CYCLOP is expected to be released in spring 2012.

MINITAUR – FEEL THE BASS

March 25, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Minitaur is capable of generating subsonic sound waves which move air in a manner that can not only be seen, but felt. Here, one of our brave “scientists” runs Minitaur through a sub woofer to demonstrate this phenomenon.

Learn more about Minitaur at: www.moogmusic.com/minitaur

“…any sound, soft or loud, sweet or nasty, creates a multidimensional
envelope that does more than intrude – it takes over not only your acoustic space,
but your mind space as well. There is no escaping sound.
It meets your body and forcibly enters your mind, not
just through your ears but also via your bones…”

-Ron Pellegrino

  • Filter section
    • Full analogue VCO, filter & VCA
    • external audio with a trimmer to feed the filter
    • 24dB low pass filter (Roland style for a classical 80s sound)
    • filter can be modulated by ENV2, KB, LFO
  • VCA section
    • VCA is affected to ENV1
    • 2 envelopes ADSR modulate respectively the amplitude and the filter.
    • Attack goes from 2ms to 10s.
  • LFO section
    • LFO with 8 waveforms (triangle, ramp up, ramp down, square, random, digital noise, staircase up, staircase down)
  • Connections
    • audio in
    • audio out
    • MIDI in
    • USB (for software update and MIDI in/out)
  • Sequencer
    • 16 steps sequencer with LED
    • 4 rows: 1 row controls gates and notes.
    • 3 other rows are freely assignable to any parameter of the front panel.
    • You can transpose the sequencer with an external MIDI keyboard.

Here’s an older demo of the Magma when it was still in prototype mode:

NAMM: Eowave KOMA Bass Synthesizer Announced – full specs

January 18, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

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

    • Attack goes from 2 ms to 10 s
    • ENV3: envelope Attack / Decay modulates the VCO

More stuff at NAMM – Discover the KOMA

Below is their pitch and specs:

This year, Eowave is attending the NAMM 2012 and will announce the release of the KOMA! 2011 has been full of new releases with the Ribbon, a monosynth/USB/audio controller and the release of the little analogue synth DOMINO in November. We’ll show the KOMA [no relation to KOMA Electronik], an analog bassline synth with memory and a 16 step sequencer that will be ready to ship very very soon!

, a step back into the 80s with a touch of 2012…

KOMA is an analog sequenced bass synthesizer inspired by classic synths from the 1980s with a synthesis section with 256 sound presets and 256 patterns and a step sequencer section.

The synthesis section offers the possibility to mix 4 different waveforms (saw, square, sub, noise) for infinite modulations. The SUB DESYNC mode enables to desynchronize and to detune the SUB and the main oscillator for complex sounds. The filter is a 24 dB resonant low-pass filter. The LFO has 8 waveforms (triangle, ramp up, ramp down, square, random, digital noise, staircase up, staircase down) and can modulate the VCO, VCF or PWM.
To this particular analog sound of the 80s, we added a touch of modernity with controls and parameters to save compositions and performances. The 16 step sequencer has 4 sections: 1 for the notes and 3 freely assignable to a parameter of your choice to create living sequences with sonorities like Vince Clark or Jan Hammer.

With 256 sound presets and 256 patterns locations, the KOMA is a versatile instrument for live performance as well as a powerful composition and sound design tool. Its very intuitive control panel allows the user to edit all parameters in real-time.
