1. SYNTHFEST 2019 - Expert Sleepers Ultimate Interface ES-9
Expert Sleepers were on hand to show their entirely new ES-9 which takes the concept of modular and DAW integration with DC coupled connections, to its logical conclusion - featuring 16 IO interface, plus 2x balanced Audio outs as well as 8x8 minijacks, and optical IO, as well as compatibility with the ES expansion modules (for up to 48 additional outputs). You can now use this at the heart of your live or recording system in one go. Available soon priced at £499 UK
2. SYNTHFEST 2019 - IO Instruments Filter - With dual resonance types
New dual filter type from IO Instruments adding to their expanding range of affordable modules, this one featuring a ladder filter (24/12/6dB slopes) - with bass compensation and an MS type filter. With Linear FM, Keytrack and other controllable aspects. Sounded good, and is affordable, expected price is around €130 Euros
3. SYNTHFEST 2019 - More On The Modal Argon8
Modal Electronics were showing two of their Argon 8 Wavetable synths - things are moving on, there are now 4 in the world - so still at production prototypes stage.

News from the Modal Electronics camp, the Argon8 firmware is still being worked on, with some advances in DSP efficiency meaning more is happening in the on board FX department.

Still aiming for November production, but probably later in the month as opposed to early. But still largely on track.
Jackson kindly gave us a glimpse of some of the new features and DSP work thats been going on.
Argon 8 is expected by the end of November at a retail price around £579.
4. SYNTHFEST 2019 - Isotonik Studios Control For Akai Fire - Soon Come
Isotonik Studios spend a lot of their time figuring out what MIDI controllers work well with Ableton Live and construct custom scripts that will allow them to be used in ways that allow for excellent studio and live workflows. In this video we look at the way that new hardware can be hooked up. Using ClipEx Pro and the bindings feature, its possible to create your own complex, custom setups.
Also on show was the soon to be released set of functions including a Euclidian sequencer and control for the Akai Fire. Which is an FL Studio controller that's has been hijacked to work with live with some more clever scripting and a Max4 Live sequencer device.
Available soon via
5. SYNTHFEST 2019 - VCVRack Updates And More To Come
VCV Rack as we know hit its V1.0 earlier this year and as such started to become more highly featured. We caught up with Dale from module developer Valley and talked about the environment, and future plans.
6. SYNTHFEST 2019 - Tranzient - VR Music Creation APP from AliveInTech
We saw some of the VR integration for Ableton Live from AliveInTech's Jim Simons a couple of years back. Since then VR headsets and hardware has reduced in price, making it more available, and so a new application has been developed which has a complete single software solution - with the VR, audio engine all in the same application.
Its called Tranzient and Jim gave us a look at the application in action.
7. SYNTHFEST 2019 - Stylophone Gen R8
The Stylophone Gen R8 is continuing its path to release - in fact its just about to ship.
Its an analogue synth voice with Stylophone heritage - ie it has the touch keypad.
All with in-house Stylophone designed Oscillators, Filter and JFET drive circuit.
8. SYNTHFEST 2019 - EvenHarmonic Stomp Synth
Evenharmonics were showing a proof of concept modular analog synth built into discrete, patchable pedals controlled by guitar.
