Analog Hybrid Desktop
and Eurorack Module

... and the future core of several Poly synthesizers

The next step in voice architecture;

  • Osc 1: Analog Saw Core with Wave-folding  & PWM

  • Sub Osc 1 with variable waveforms

  • Osc 2:  AnalogSaw Core with PWM, Sync, and FM

  • Osc 3:  Digital 

  • 2 and 3 input Digital Ring Modulator

  • 8 Pole Multi-Mode Dual Peak Filter

  • VCA with soft and overdrive distortion

  • 4 ADAHSR Envelopes with variable shape 

  • 3 LFO with key-sync and delay

  • Modulation Adders, multipliers, lag, contouring.

  • Full MIDI interface

  • User-selectable CV In and Out

  • 100 user patches and built-in standard patches

32 Knobs and 22 buttons... No Menu Diving!
