Every once in a while, a very cool synth passes our way and we just really want to show you how it works. Meet the Kickstarter success, Kilpatrick Phenol patchable synth, and watch Rishabh Rajan show you what it’s all about.
We love modular synths of every kind, shape and format! And this synth, the Kilpatrick Phenol, really caught our attention! With its very cool looks, interesting layout and Buchla banana plug patching scheme, the Phenol truly captured our imagination. So we assigned synth expert Rishabh Rajan to show you how the Phenol works and, along the way, reinforce your synthesis knowledge-base!
Rishabh covers this little modular in its entirety: layout, signal flow, control voltages, sequencer/looper, filters, modulation sources and more. By the way, although the Phenol uses Buchla-style banana plugs (which are perfect for multis) you can use banana-to-minijack cables to integrate the Phenol with any Eurorack or other system!
So dig into this inspiring little synth now and see what it's all about!
I have had my phenol for over a year and most of the time it just sat on the shelf unused because as many times as I watched the tutorials on the Kilpatrick website for some reason the information didn't really sink in, or rather maybe now after having two different people explain it to me I finally get it. The Phenol is an extraordinary powerful Synth and you owe it to yourself to watch these tutorials If you are just starting out on the modular synth journey.
