Introducing - Makers of Vector and Tempera


Dear friends,

as hot summer months are slowly passing by, our Prague workshop has been pretty busy working on all axes. Since there's now two products to care for, there's more things to do, more PCB wiring and more code to siphon through, but there's a silver lining in that when we're too deep in one thing and need some respite, there's always something to do on the other :)

We are

Another thing we're slowly dealing with is the inscrutable situation about our branding, which we have gotten ourselves into. Vector, VectorSynth Tempera, TemperaSynth Vector, Vectora Synth Temper. It's a mess. To get out of all this confusion we decided to adopt an umbrella for both existing and new upcoming projects: We couldn't quite figure out a suitable name but many of you started using this, so let's go with it. For now the website is a simple crossroad and will be improved over time. Both Vector and Tempera newsletters will be merged into one at some point, so if you're subscribed to both you may have received this email twice. Please ignore the other.

Now to the actual news. There's two parts here -- an update about how Tempera production is going, and announcement of the new Vector v2.9.1 firmware update. Let's start with -

Tempera Production Update

New upgrades

There's a few changes made to the hardware that we're comfortable sharing, now that they are verified. First, a great quality of life improvement: the TRS MIDI sockets are compatible both with Type A and Type B wiring ! This means that you don't have to worry and fiddle with unmarked adapters -- both types will work.

Next, we were still a bit unhappy with the powder coat finish of the metal case. It's difficult to get right: each attempt at different color and paint structure takes a lot of time to test and verify because at least a piece of metal needs to be painted and sent to us for examination, and it takes even longer because of course the metal case manufacturer doesn't have all the paints in stock, and sometimes they have to buy a whole bottle just to use a few drops. A sample palette exists but as we already learned with Vector, these give some idea but in the end look nothing like what you think on the actual metal, on the bends, crevices and so on.

Having said all that, I think we found and verified a finish that we're really happy with . It's less glossy and has a finer and more granular (hah) structure. It's very nice to the touch and I think looks much better. See for yourself, how the light interacts with the old vs new powder coat on top. Noticeable are also the beautifully laser etched graphics. (Tempera in old finish, plate on top in new finish. The light is angled in such a way to highlight the grain, the new finish is in fact even blacker than the old.)

Superbooth 2023: Tempera Granular Synth From The Vector Synth People

video upload by sonicstate

"We spoke to Andre Sklenar of VectorSynth about their new product, Tempora. Tempora is a granular synthesizer and sampler that has a total global pool of 4000 samples, with 16 voices of polyphony, per-voice filters, and per-voice modulators.

The basic operation is that you have eight tracks or samples that can be short or up to 10-12 seconds long, and you put in a note and an emitter that tells it what pitch to play and where the grains come from. Each emitter can have a different size, density, and color coding, and you can modulate the parameters of each.

The interface provides good utility in terms of where the grains are pulled, and there is no waveform, so users are encouraged to listen and explore with their fingers. The Tempora is PC powered, and if you want, you can use a power bank. VectorSynth plans to start doing pre-orders as soon as possible, and the price is yet to be determined.

Tempera: A New Granular Instrument

video upload by Red Means Recording

"This video is sponsored by the makers of Tempera:
Tempera is a new granular instrument by the makers of the Vector Synth ( It features 8 sample slots, each represented by a verticle column, that can be played back polyphonically, 4 granular emitters, envelopes, lfos, a filter, and a reverb.

I've been alpha-testing this unit and have made some content for it. Check it out in person at Superboooth 2023."
