Erica Synths will be unveiling its SYNTRX II desktop synthesizer and a new LXR Eurorack module at SuperBooth22 (booth O235).
Also, the company announced it will be taking pre-orders on its PĒRKONS HD-01 live performance and sound design instrument. It will be shipping from July 2022 at a RRP of 1,650 EUR (excl. VAT) / MAP $1,999 USD.
SYNTRX II – a new dark horse for experimental sonic rides
Peter Zinovieff himself approved Erica Synths’ re-imagination of his legendary Synthi AKS in the form of the SYNTRX, which was produced in a limited run of 1056 units.
Based on lessons learned from the SYNTRX, Erica Synths has created an instrument which will integrate even deeper into contemporary electronic and experimental music setups, covering sonic territory from daunting drones, to powerful basslines, to glitched noisescapes.
The SYNTRX II is the culmination of Erica Synths’ analog sound design circuits: two perfectly stable main oscillators with waveshapers, a versatile multimode filter, supercharged external instrument inputs with an envelope follower, a unique and beautiful sounding ringmodulator, a recordable joystick, and a built in piano roll sequencer — all arranged around the company’s signature matrix mixer. This is all topped off with powerful FX on a new DSP platform.
Available in the summer of 2022, the SYNTRX II is priced 1,800 EUR (excl. VAT) / $2,179 USD.
