Birdkids explain a little more about the project and its inspiration. “We love synthesizers and we’re passionate about making them great sounding and above all – accessible. 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. “
