Musicians and DJs searching for a unique way to add extra flair to their music may be interested in the Magnus modular synthesiser toolkit created by Martin Klang based in London. The Magnus uses algorithms to add “magic to your music” says Martin thanks to his patchable, programmable synthesiser. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Magnus which is this week launched via Kickstarter to raise the £12,000 required to take the concept into production.
A number of different modules are available in the form of the Wizard Minisynth, Alchemist Microsynth and patch Library. To load a patch, simply plug in the USB cable and load it directly from the web, or download it as a MIDI Sysex file. The Magnus is now available to back with pledges starting from just £90 for the Alchemist Microsynth £420 for the Magnus Synthesiser Toolkit.
“Algorithms are the magic potions and spells of the modern day. In electronic music, they make the wooshes, booms, squeals, screams and bops that might have us contemplate the universe, reach personal insight, or dance like mad for days on end. Join us on a journey to create ever more powerful algorithms, and to make them open and available to everyone. We already have a community of hundreds of talented synthesists sharing their work. Let’s make it bigger, let’s make it better, let’s do it together!”
