French Hybrid Mono/Duophonic Synthesizer with analogue filter 05/12/17
Once again Kickstarter provides a platform for hardware projects to be put through to fruition. French electronics engineer Lacaud Gilles had always dreamt of building his own Synthesizer, So after 20 years in the business he has developed the HANSY1010, A Hybrid Digital/analogue Synthesizer.
The synth uses digital 'variable sample frequency oscillators, Capable of producing "basic waveforms like SAW/SINE/TRI/SQUARE/PWM but also some special Waves like the MKS,PRO2,PSAW,SAWSQUARE,TRISQUARE".
A built in SD card containing an internal wave bank of 4300 waveforms, Means it can also produce Vector and Phase distortion synthesis as well as the usual Piano & Organ Sounds. All this run through a 4 pole Analogue filter means this synth has the potential to produce some amazing sounds.
Featuring a 24 step sequencer and arpeggiator, Another cool feature is the Game pad style 4 position joystick, Allowing you to route velocity, aftertouch, pitch bend,mod wheel and a whole host of other parameters to its 4 points allowing for a lot expression, modulation and motion.
The full HANSY1010 synth is available in white or orange priced at €380, with other kit form variants available.
