Who said Summer was slow? Well somebody.. But not around here. We've just had word that there's a new brand new British Polysynth on the way. Its been a while since there's been an analog British poly thats for sure, in fact I'm not sure I can think of one - Oscar maybe?.
New synth company Modulus Music have launched a teaser site for an upcoming new digital/analogue hybrid hardware polysynth called modulus .002. As is customary, there's a blurred image to accompany the initial news, which appears to show a synth of significant proportions and controls. Looks like there may be a row of sequence or extra assignable control knobs there.
Additionally, there's a very tasty sounding PWM pad demo.
Apart from that, there are no other details - but the site indicates that there is more to come. On their facebook page we can see that the Monowave rack synth is "part of the history" of the company which means that synth designer Paul Maddox of Vaco Loco would appear to be involved. His recent creations are mini modules GorF, Zira and Tron - but this seems to be something much more ambitious.
