Original post via Stromkult:

"Flame showed a prototype of their first desktop synthesizer, the Mäander, at the NAMM show 2019. Calling this instrument extraordinary is almost an understatement. Thanks to its digital oscillator, which comes equipped with parameters like Contour and Unisono, the Mäander is capable of generating an astonishing spectrum of sounds. Huge basses, velvety soft to metallic leads and pads as well as a wide range of effect sounds can be created in no time. Highlight of the instrument, however, is its flexibly controllable, fully analog filter bank with twelve bands and eight filter types. In detail, there are high-pass, three band-pass modes, notch, low-pass and LP / BP as well as LP / HP combinations. The most impressive sounds that were heard at the NAMM show had a strong vocal-like character. Other synthesis features include two LFOs with variable shape as well as sync, re-trigger and one shot modes, an ADSR envelope plus a nifty live sequencer. The latter is not exactly made to notate melodies, but more of a complex, yet easy to handle arpeggiator. All in all, the Mäander appears to be a highly innovative instrument. – We can’t wait to give it a proper test drive!"
