Organic, Semi-Modular Light and Sound Synthesizer

We are really happy to finally announce the softPop ! Since the first public preview at the Superbooth we have pushed its design even further, fine tuned its inner workings but most importantly we have developed anodised aluminium enclosure with laser engraving. That gives the machine durability boost and empowers its portability.

softPop is a playfully organic, semi-modular light and sound synthesizer with wide variety of sounds: from random dripping water pops to heavy subtractive bass lines. Its fully analog core consisting of a heavy feedback system of dual triangle-core oscillators, state variable filter and sample and hold is played through an intuitive interface of 6 faders that provide countless combinations which can be explored by anyone. It can also process external audio thru the filter while using the envelope follower to intuitively synchronize to the incoming signal. Extensive mini patch bay offers lots of reconfigurability and 3 jacks A,B,C can be used to send signals in or out of the patch bay. Battery operation, built in speaker and carrying handle make it the ultimate picnic boombox! The analog soul is enhanced by a quantize feature (auto-tune) and pattern generator with two memories P1 and P2. For adventurous and courageous souls there is a secret chamber in the back for hacking & modding.
