Recorded live in a single session and not multitracked, this video is Part 1 of a series of performances created with only the Analogue Solutions Colossus synthesizer and is titled, "Evolver."
Analogue Solutions tells us that more Colossus performances and sound examples will be uploaded in the coming days in an attempt to provide a variety of musical styles and sound types from this synthesizer.
Analogue Solutions describe Colossus as an exciting new mega-synth with a design ethos truly from the dawn of analogue synths. They say that it is more than a powerful analogue 'workstation' - it is also art, architecture, exquisite studio furniture.
A spokesperson told us, "Design inspiration is of course from the 1970's EMS Synthi 100, however, no circuit from the Synthi has been cloned or copied. We prefer to make our own designs. We have chosen some of our favourite circuits from our own large back catalogue synths such as Polymath, Telemark and Vostok. Colossus is not a Synthi 100 clone - all circuits are non-EMS, Analogue Solutions' design."
