the magma will make you go back into the 80's sounds with sonorities. the sound engine is inspired from the sh series by roland, which had a waveform mix and a sequencer. though, the idea of the magma was
not to make a copy of a vintage synth, but to build a new synth with the best of today's analogue and digital technology. we wanted to build a synth with a very specific texture of sound, sounds like earth
magma, something warm, thick and fat. we've added modern controls and a memory with 256 presets.
analogue vco with square saw sub (sub can be 1 or 2 octaves below the master freq), noise.
vco can be modulated by lfo and pw
mixer to mix the 4 waveforms
full analogue vco, filter, vca.
external audio with a trimmer to feed the filter
24db low pass filter roland style for a classical 80s sound
filter can be modulated by env2, kb, lfo.
vca is affected to env1
2 envelopes adsr modulate respectively the amplitude and the filter.
attack goes from 2ms to 10s.
2 x lfo with 8 waveforms (triangle, ramp up, ramp down, square, random, digital noise, staircase up, staircase down)
usb (for software update and midi in&out)
16 steps sequencer with led
4 rows: 1 row controls gates and notes.
3 other rows are freely assignable to any parameter of the front panel.
swing and shuffle per note
you can transpose the sequencer with an external midi keyboard.
