Synthesizers


A selection of synths, expansion boards, organs and workstations for keyboard players. We do not have the time, equipment or staff to review all of these wonderful goodies, but thankfully there are plenty of magazines who do! Whilst we are unable to comment on the pro's and con's of individual products, we receive so many requests for product information that we have partnered with affiliates to provide a small collection of effects, instruments, equipment and other accessories for convenience. We like these companies for their secure online shopping, wide range of products and reasonable pricing. Using these links to purchase goods also helps to keep this site free ;-)

Novation MiniNova Analog Modeling Sythesizer
Focusrite MiniNova is a powerful mini-keys synth with incredible performance controls, which enable you to tweak and warp the onboard sounds and your own voice. It has the same synth-engine as UltraNova, and comes with 256 sounds. It also has a fully editable Nova-class synth engine. MiniNova' s compact size, massive sound, and performance/editing controls make it perfect for producers, gigging musicians, and anyone creating music with computers. It can also be a 37 key controller keyboard with MIDI I/O. The VocalTune and vocoder enable you to recreate classic vocal effects, as well as new voice-bending possibilities. MiniNova has 256 onboard sounds and space to save another 128 sounds. It comes with a free software Patch Librarian so you can store as many sounds as you want on your computer. MiniNova has knobs that allow you to tweak and edit sounds, but it can also 'animate' sound with 8 back-lit buttons. These trigger 'mods' in the synth engine can warp sound in incredible ways. There is also a large knob for filter cutoff so you can get instant control. You can run your voice through MiniNova' s effects engine and there is an input into which you can plug a guitar or any other instrument and give it the same treatment. MiniNova has an enormously powerful synth engine with 14 conventional waveforms to choose from, 36 wavetables, and 20 digital waveforms. Each of the 3 oscillators (per voice) have density. There are 14 filter types, 6 envelope generators, 3 LFOs and 20 modulation slots where you can link modules of the synth engine together to shape sound. MiniNova can add up to 5 effects to each voice including distortion, reverb, chorus/phase, delay, compressor, EQ and Novation's unique gator effect. Editing sounds in such a powerful synth can be overwhelming, so we've created the MiniNova Editor which works as a plug-in within your DAW or music software. You can fully edit MiniNova using the hardware and the software makes it easier to see what you are doing.

Stylophone Retro Pocket Synth
The Stylophone is a miniature stylus operated synthesizer invented in 1968 and used by such iconic musicians as David Bowie, Kraftwerk and Erasure. It features a metal keyboard played by touching it with a stylus. That's right, over four decades ago with computers the size of a gymnasium and nary a PDA in sight the Stylophone was a portable electronic music instrument with stylus based control. This exact recreation of the original sounds the same as it did in the 60s. Simply remove the pen and tap any key for classic synth sounds. There is a switch to add vibrato and you can choose from one of three different retro organ type sounds. The tuning knob on the bottom allows for some pitch-bend effects if you must. The Stylophone is one of the simplest electronic instruments you will find, but it's minimal style is a big part of its charm. Requires 3 AA batteries (not included)
