birdkids, from Vienna, Austria, has launched a Kickstarter Campaign for RAVEN, which they describe as a 100% analog, semi-modular, synthesizer voice. This is what they have to say...
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.
The system-architectural idea was about going back to the basics of subtractive synthesis. We wanted to capture the raw, non-linearity and honesty of a 100% analog circuit. The main engineering challenge of RAVEN was consolidating a highly complex conglomerate of modular, discrete designs into a slim 3U/42HP (Eurorack) form-factor resulting in a uniquely sounding subtractive, semi-modular, high-performance, musical instrument.
RAVEN is comprised of:
