The Shruthi-1 is a hybrid monosynth, combining the warmth of real analogue filters with the edginess and synthesis possibilities (FM, wavetable oscillators, modulation matrix, sequencing, full MIDI implementation) of digital synthesizers. Its hardware design is deceptively simple — optimized for DIY assembly, not for large-scale manufacturing — but don’t be fooled, its sonic range is wide! Sometimes grungily digital like a PPG-Wave, fat and funky like a SH-101, videogame-y like a Commodore 64, weird and warm like an ESQ-1; but more often than not, truly original.
The MIDIpal is the MIDI equivalent of a stompbox… Plug it between a MIDI keyboard and a MIDI sound module and unleash creative effects and compositional aids such as delays, arpeggiators, scale mappers, randomizers or pattern generators. It also offers many classical “MIDI plumbing” features such as event filtering or channel remapping.
Ten years after the Minimoog Voyager's introduction, it stands as the worlds most iconic analog synthesizer. To this day, each instrument is made by hand with love at the Moog Factory in Asheville, NC.
