With 22 days to go and almost 50% funded on Kickstarter the Implexus desktop hardware synthesizer is a bit different beast to most other synths on the market.
Majella Audio tells us this is a "no compromises" instrument, designed for live performance that interestingly combines "West – and East-coast synthesis techniques into a single form factor. The IMPLEXUS has a unique analog circuitry that uses waveshaping, folding and audio rate modulation to create an immense range of sounds!"
The Implexus isn't cheap, but it's a completely unique, new instrument built with really high quality components and designed with sound, quality and performance in mind. It's also refreshing to see an instrument created that is designed to be durable and have longevity.
A unit will set you back €1,299, just under £1,200 GBP. While not super cheap, this is a unique synthesizer and one worth checking out by everyone into West-Coast synths like Buchla synths.
The interface is designed to make it intuitive for all thanks to its one-knob, one function controls.
The philosophy behind the unique analog signal path of the Implexus is to create sound by adding harmonics instead of subtracting them. The unique sound comes from West-coast style synthesis techniques including:
With the Implexus there comes a point that after hours of tweaking, you will be surprised to find out you haven't even touched the VCF yet.. But it is there in the more EAST-coast style techniques the Implexus offers, including:
The Implexus also includes a tape-emulating style delay that can be clock synced and offers Tap Tempo!
