Rebel Technology Introduces the Magus, Wizard, & Alchemist on Kickstarter

Magus Modular Synthesizer Toolkit 2018 Published on Apr 5, 2018

"Algorithms are modern day magic spells. Add magic to your music with the Magus, a patchable, programmable synthesizer toolkit."

Magus KickBox Demo Published on Apr 4, 2018 Rebel Technology

"KickBox is a groovebox patch running on the Magus synthesizer toolkit. It makes a beat with hats and a kick, and adds a virtual analogue subtractive synth voice with a killer 8-pole resonant low pass filter.

Realtime parameter tweaking and 24 analogue patch points give you complete creative control over how the sound is produced."

Wizard PolySub Demo Published on Apr 4, 2018 Rebel Technology

"PolySub is a polyphonic subtractive synth patch running on the Wizard. PolySub has 8 voices true polyphony with virtual analogue oscillators, waveshape and PWM morph, 8-pole resonant filter and ADSR envelopes.
In this demo it is sequenced with the CV and gate outputs of a Korg SQ-1 but it can also be played by connecting a MIDI device."

Alchemist Ping Pong Delay Demo Published on Apr 4, 2018 Rebel Technology

"Ping Pong Delay running on Alchemist, synchronised to the trigger output of a TR808 drum machine. The trigger keeps all the beats tight and allows the delay to bounce anything from 16th notes and triplets to full bars around the stereo space."

"The Magus, Wizard and Alchemist are all built on the Rebel Technology OpenWare firmware and can run the same patch programs as two of our existing products: the OWL Pedal and OWL Modular. This means that our entire library of more than 200 patch programs is ready to use right now!"

Magus Synthesizer Toolkit Prototype

"Algorithms are the magic potions and spells of the modern day. In electronic music, they make the wooshes, booms, squeals, screams and bops that might have us contemplate the universe, reach personal insight, or dance like mad for days on end. Join us on a journey to create ever more powerful algorithms, and to make them open and available to everyone. We already have a community of hundreds of talented synthesists sharing their work. Let's make it bigger, let's make it better, let's do it together!

The Magus is like having a compact modular synthesizer without being limited by the modules you've got in it.

Unlike traditional synthesizers, the Magus doesn't confine itself to a fixed function or paradigm. Whether you want granular, additive, FM, subtractive, spectral, chaotic or stochastic synthesis, Magus gives you the freedom to pick the right algorithm for the job and then lets you loose to patch up a storm.

Enjoy the creative power of a hardware synthesizer with the flexibility of audio plugins.

If our existing library of algorithms doesn't do it for you, you can even create your own, for truly unbounded creative freedom. And you can use any one of more than two hundred patches from our library as a starting point. Patches can be authored in Max Gen, Pure data, FAUST or C++, giving you an impressive range of powerful musical programming tools to choose from."

Wizard Minisynth Prototype

"The Magus' little brother is the Wizard. It runs the same patches and is also patchable as well as programmable. This means that you can change the signal flow on the fly and connect it to other kit. It is incredibly compact but still sports five assignable control knobs and four buttons, and a total of six patch points. Like the Magus it has both USB MIDI device and host connections so that you can plug your favourite controller straight in - be it keyboard, drum pads, sequencer, grid, or multidimensional controller. It makes an excellent stand-alone synth or effects unit and has huge integration capabilities."

Alchemist Microsynth Prototype

"The Alchemist is the baby of the family, but it packs a powerful punch. With four knobs, two trigger buttons, one mode button and trigger and CV inputs it amazingly still fits in your hand.

All three devices have a USB socket and can be powered by USB or by an external DC supply."
