The idea of a homemade synth normally evokes images of dinky kits to make bleeps and bloops with (in my mind anyway) - but this is something more akin to the real deal! Albert Nyström has shared a video of an unbelievable synth he's made with all-analog circuitry, aside from some of the effects. It has an exceptionally wide range of sounds - with gnarly Prodigy-esque leads, weird sci-fi effects and rich 80's-inspired bass.
Details on the unit are scarce but what we do know is:
Judging by the photos at the end, it's all been hand soldered, and will be difficult to replicate without any schematics or diagrams. Hopefully he has these, or a unit to buy soon, as it sounds fantastic. Hats off Albert! We shared more DIY synths a few weeks back, if you want to see what others have made.
