Georgia Sancristoforo has released Compusynth400, a modular synthesizer that takes inspiration from the west coast paradigm and the mighty Altair8800, one of the first personal microcomputers available to the hobbyists in the mid 70s. It’s available for €19.50.
With its peculiar 128 bit sequencer, oscillators, filters, efxs and processors, Compusynth is a powerful sonic laboratory thanks to its generous resources and flexible routing with 1596 patch points!
Compusynth has everything Giorgio has ever dreamt about west coast modulars: enough resources to create tons of sounds with the addition of a large memory sequencer and a fantastic tape echo.
Compusynth can make weird experimental sounds as well as traditional fat synth sequences that will serve any music genere with its warm and deep tone.
A cute tape recorder with many tape simulations is at hand to record your sound and gigs.
Compusynth is made for experimentation, free from cliché and formulas, it is a magnificent tool for live improvisation, drones, strange bongos and extremely flexible for sound design.
You can use any virtual audio driver to connect Compusynth with your DAW, just in case…
NOTE: To route audio to and from your DAW use a virtual audio driver such as Blackhole or Loopback as there is no VST version.
Compusynth is currently only available to Mac users, the Windows version is due in January 2024.
