joshua w watson is raising funds for Shrolca Digital Wavecycle Synthesizer on Kickstarter! Mutable Instruments Shruthi synth with touchplate keyboard, Volca sized(but shallower) w/ analog 24db ladder filter
Shrolca is a new synthesizer looking for funding on Kickstarter. Here’s how its developer describes it…
The Shrolca is one of the most powerful synthesizers for it's size made today. The foundation is the Mutable Instrument's Shruthi. The Shruthi has a powerful sound engine and analog filter. This offering is no different. It has the same Digital wavecycle oscillators and sequencers and modulation matrix with a classic transistor ladder 24dB voltage controlled filter. Our other inspiration was the popular Korg line of mini synthesizers, the Volca series. We have included a touch activated MIDI keyboard that makes performances in the closet fun! The prototype featured on this campaign page has a wooden box but, the production unit will have a machined aluminum body that is less than an inch deep.
The keyboard, sequencer and arp can all transmit midi data to the midi output. Please see videos below for rundown of options and info on some of the many capabilities of the synth.
Other improvements included in the production unit will be: thicker flat black coating to the faceplate, thicker solder for the touchplates, and higher quality materials used for the faceplate. There will also be a eurorack mounting frame with cv i/o available as a separate accessory.
The open source files for the project will be made available upon release in October.
