Analogue Solutions has announced that it is the sole stockist of the first batch of the newly-launched Vostok 2020, the latest (fourth) incarnation of creator Tom Carpenter’s semi-modular synthesizer.
Vostok2020 takes some of the best parts of its iconic Vostok V2 and V3 Deluxe predecessors and brings them together as an augmented analog power synth fit for a new decade.
Vostok has that great vintage analogue sound that Analogue Solutions products are renowned for having. The circuits are real analogue circuits. No trickery or playing with words.
When we say ‘real analogue’ we mean that the entire audio path, including the reverb, and all modulation are entirely analogue, using circuits based on awesome sounding vintage 1970s designs. Their circuits are not locked down by CPUs. Controls are not quantised and read by CPUs.
With the exception of the essential digital elements (that is MIDI conversion, sequencer control), Vostok really is analogue and the sound benefit is immediately apparent!
