It's been highly anticipated since annouced at Superbooth 2017. The Quantid Swarm desktop touch synth from Eowave arrived on Kickstarter a few days ago and already has smashed past its modest €10,000 goal by 150% with 28 days to go.
Check out our video overview from Superbooth 2017 of the first prototype Quadrantid Swarm:
The Quadrantid Swarm is a desktop touch synthesizer aimed at sound designers and musicians who are looking for an expressive tool to explore rich and unusual soundscapes with a direct intuitive approach.
Past research and development at eowave has contributed to a range of successful products aimed at musicians and performers - including sensor interfaces, MIDI devices, modular synthesizers and more. This has been honed and distilled in the Quadrantid Swarm. It is an instrument that has been designed openly - to be used with MIDI, alongside your modular synthesizer/CV sequencer or to be explored as a standalone drone/sequencer/generative synthesizer.
Pledges start at €425.
Estimated delivery: April 2018
