RAVEN is a 100% analog synth being developed by Birdkids, an independent Austrian outfit. According to the developers, the system-architectural idea was about going back to the basics of subtractive synthesis. They wanted to capture the raw, non-linearity and honesty of a 100% analog circuit. The main engineering challenge of RAVEN was consolidating a highly complex conglomerate of modular, discrete designs into a slim 3U/42HP (Eurorack) form-factor resulting in a uniquely sounding subtractive, semi-modular, high-performance, musical instrument.
RAVEN is comprised of:
"To us, analog is about texture, it’s about depth of emotion - it’s the beauty in imperfection. Those are human values, they're timeless, they enrich our everyday experiences. That is why we've developed RAVEN, a 100% analog, semi-modular, synthesizer voice.
RAVEN is the synthesizer we’ve always dreamed of making from day one. Building on a legacy of years of technological research, design and manufacturing as well as the tremendous success of our previous modular line, TheBateleur, we had quite a few challenges to face during the creation process."
RAVEN combines the simplicity of a performance-friendly, semi-modular synthesizer voice with fully-modular, infinitely flexible, workflow possibilities by assigning Control Voltage I/O’s at (almost) every point in the signal workflow. Each modular component can be seen as a standalone, self-sufficient entity.
The VCF can be bypassed to allow for a VCO (I+II Sum) to VCA operation and thus used as a standalone VCF or third voice in self-oscillation, perfectly tracking 1V/Oct by choice.
