Second Sound UniSyn: The Ultimate Pitch Tracker

"Hey I'm alive!
Remember that raw circuit board looking thing that I was demoing a while back? It's now a commercial product and it's incredible. This little video barely even scratches the surface.

"Greetings Second Sound Fans, Demo Artists, Current and Future Customers!

I am happy to report that I have finalized the re-design of my DACO160EVK with a more ergonomic layout, extra features, and — best of all — in a sturdy aluminum enclosure! This will be a consumer product which I have tentatively named the UniSyn, short for Universal Audio to Synth Interface.

The UniSyn employs the same pitch and envelope tracking technology of its prototype predecessor, converting audio from any monophonic source to CV and MIDI. The UniSyn also creates a dedicated sine wave as well as filtered square or sawtooth waves which can be optionally pitch-shifted over a +/-2 octave range with semitone resolution.

The new features include:

24v Phantom Power
Firmware upgrades/modifications available via SD card
Automatic Gain Control (AGC) for the input preamp
A new analog 3:1 input compression mode that works together with the AGC to make the synth dynamics really “pop”
1/4″ jack sustain pedal interface
And, of course, what turned out to be my most requested feature while I was selling the DACO160EVK units — a high-quality aluminum enclosure
I am still in the process of establishing the MSRP for the UniSyn. In the meantime, I will be offering a 20% discount on the remaining DACO160EVK units until they are all sold.

Thank you all for your valuable feedback and help evaluating the earlier prototypes. I’ve tried to accommodate all of the great suggestions I received and believe, and hope you agree, that as a result we’ve made a great product together!"
