New Shrolca Digital Wavecycle Shruthi Synthesizer on Kickstarter

Via Kickstarter where you'll find additional videos and details.

Cool synth art below!

"The Shrolca is one of the most powerful synthesizers for it's size made today. The foundation is the Mutable Instrument's Shruthi. The Shruthi has a powerful sound engine and analog filter. This offering is no different. It has the same Digital wavecycle oscillators and sequencers and modulation matrix with a classic transistor ladder 24dB voltage controlled filter. Our other inspiration was the popular Korg line on mini synthesizers, the Volca series. We have included a touch activated MIDI keyboard that makes performances in the closet fun! The prototype featured on this campaign page has a wooden box but, the production unit will have a machined aluminum body that is less than an inch deep.

The keyboard, sequencer and arp can all transmit midi data to the midi output. Please see videos below for rundown of options and info on some of the many capabilities of the synth.

Other improvements included in the production unit will be: thicker flat black coating to the faceplate, thicker solder for the touchplates, and higher quality materials used for the faceplate. There will also be a eurorack mounting frame with cv i/o available as a separate accessory.


Risks and challenges

We have been working on this synthesizer for a little over two years, the only challenge we have left will be to have the units manufactured. These have been prototyped multiple times and we are satisfied with the results. We already have quotes and machine time reserved to manufacture and have ready to ship by October."
