Korg have quietly released major updates for the Prologue, KROSS2 and Volca synths. Here's what's new.
The K-2 is an analog and semi-modular synthesizer with Dual VCOs, ring modulator, external signal processor, 16-voice polychain, in eurorack format. Now we can properly listen to what it's capable of.
Icelandic music tech company Genki Instruments ships Wave, it's debut product. Wave is the ring that lets you control sound with motion.
Although priced higher than the recent powerful Modal Argon8 wave morphing synth, the new Hydrasynth from Ashun Sound Machines is also worth a look.
We were hoping for one synthesizer announcement on #909 day... instead, we got two thanks to the good folks at Behringer. Both Crave and Pro-1 are in full production. Here's the pics to prove it.
Here's a spoiler alert if ever there was one. Thanks to the collaboration between Behringer and GliGli we can expect to say hello to reimagined analog synths from the 70s.
This is a synthesizer we have been very excited about for a number of weeks. Modal's Argon8 brings the wavetable goodness of the $5,000 008 to a smaller device at a much more affordable price.
Alongside the new grooveboxes, Boutique synths and Fantom range, Roland has announced the new Jupiter-X and Jupiter-Xm synthesizers. Here's what we know so far...
Roland's new JU-06A combines the best of the JUNO-60 and JUNO-106 in a modern and compact, battery-powered instrument that’s convenient to play anywhere.
Roland tells us their new groove boxes, MC-101 and MC-707 are powerful, self-contained production platforms for modern electronic music creators.
The all-new expandable Fantom keyboards from Roland offer fluid workflow, modeless operation, deep computer integration, and much more.
A day after releasing the NTS-1 DIY digital synthesizer, Korg have announced a stunning new KROSS2-88 model with upgraded sounds and a new matte black finish.
The internet was buzzing yesterday with news of 100 layoffs by Native Instruments and what it could mean. We now have an official statement from the Berlin-based music instrument company. Here it is.
It's the first audio plugin for Baby Audio and they've decided to give powerful New York style compression to the masses with I Heart NY.
Korg are looking ahead to a world of DIY instruments and effects. Fresh from years of success with their volca range, the Nu:Tekt brand kicks off by launching the NTS-1, a powerful digital synth.
