Amazing FM synthesizer with 6 operators and 8 voices of polyphony

SYNSET FM is a complete 6 operators FM synthesizer with the addition of 3 dedicated FM drums channels, a sequencer, 2 arpeggiators and an effect section. The programming of the voices is very user friendly, thanks to the FaderOS and the 5 encoders. 2 more controls are provided to control your prefered effect in realtime. No limit to experiment with FM synthesis and create your own amazing sounds.

5 parts pattern sequencer and 2 arpeggiators

The SYNSET FM is designed to be very intuitive and provides everything you need for easy and quick music creation. You will be able to program great patterns and build a complete track without the need of a computer or other instruments. All this is controlled by a user friendly 16-step sequencer. A digital mixer is present to set every instrument level and a special mute function is featured for easy and quick live stage usage. A 16 keys keyboard allows to program the patterns or even play live with various modes availables (Sequencer, Live or Arpeggios). When edited, it is possible to save the complete pattern context on 16 availables pattern memories. A song mode is also available to assemble your patterns and make a complete song.

Control your existing gear

SYNSET FM has a dedicated external track allowing to simply control another instrument through USB, MIDI or CV/Gate interfaces.

FX section

An FX section is also present providing delay, chorus, distortion and even a resonant lowpass filter with LFO.

Complete and professional connectivity

The presence of USB, MIDI and CV/Gate allows the instrument to be interfaced with the widest range of instruments and devices. The MIDI implementation is very complete and allows to control all synth and sound parameters.
