Superlative Instruments has created a new rechargeable portable analogue synthesiser in the form of the SB01 which has this week launched via Kickstarter and is now available to back with pledges starting from $899. The analogue synthesiser has been created to provide an iconic sound and is enclosed in a machined aluminium casing, offering the thinnest analogue synthesiser ever designed say it’s creators.
“With the musician at the center of every decision we made, the design of the SB01 takes playability and portability to new levels. For us, true portability meant incorporating fully rechargeable battery power. A generous 16-hour battery life allows for extended usage between charges. In addition, the battery is user-replaceable to ensure an instrument that lasts many years into the future. While playing, queue up stored sequences with CHAIN mode or start them immediately with JUMP. In addition, we’ve included a unique MODULO mode for interleaving sequences. A sequence direction modifier and transpose latching function enable new possibilities, while the arpeggiator gives you several modes including random play. “
Additional features of the SB1 analogue synthesiser:
– The SB01 comes with comprehensive connectivity to other analog and digital instruments, allowing it to act as a versatile controller in both a stage or studio setup.
– Pitch and filter control along with vibrato can be added with the unique 360° bender joystick.
– Take it back to the future with an optional keytar grip that offers 3-axis accelerometer control.
– Designed for the musician first, and engineered to last.
