Futuresonus has this week unveiled a new analog synthesizer called the Parva Polyphonic that has been designed to combine the classic warmth of analogue synthesis together with the convenience of digital audio control.
The Parva Polyphonic analog synthesizer has launched a rather Kickstarter crowdfunding website looking to raise $50,000 to take the concept into manufacture and has already raised a third of its required funding in just the first few days.
Watch the video below to learn more about this revolutionary new polyphonic analog synthesizer that takes the form of a desktop device. Its creators explain a little more about its features and functionality:
– ANALOG : From the oscillators and wave-shapers to the voltage-controlled filters (VCF) and snappy OTA-based voltage-controlled amplifiers (VCA), Parva’s signal path is 100% analog. There’s no DSP here.
– DIGITAL : Parva’s digital controls enable you to save and recall patches instantaneously, change parameters via MIDI, and route LFOs and envelopes to more than 40 destinations in the modulation matrix, all without the hassle of patch cables.
– POLYPHONY : Parva can be configured for up to eight note polyphony. Extremely flexible voice assignment allows you to stack as many voices as you like for more complex sounds, split the keyboard up to eight ways, or both in any combination.
– CONTROL : With its smooth analog potentiometers, Parva gives you direct access to all of the most commonly used parameters. Plus, each section of the synth has additional settings displayed on a high-visibility OLED, so the perfect patch is never more than a click away.
– CONNECTIVITY : Parva is the first analog synthesizer to feature a USB Master port, which allows you to connect any class-compliant USB MIDI keyboard — or other controller — directly, without the need for a computer. Of course, standard MIDI DIN in and out connections and a “normal” USB port are also included, as well as individual outputs for each voice, and a stereo headphone jack.
– CONSTRUCTION : From the aluminum enclosure to the custom-machined aluminum knobs on sturdy panel-mounted pots, Parva was designed with working musicians in mind, and built to last. Each unit is hand-assembled in Austin, TX.
