As you will notice, new synthesizers are announced almost every day. No wonder, in a month is the Superbooth 2019. A new company with the name Superlative has today announced a new Synthesizer, which we know from the past, but modernized for the present time. The SB-1/Space is an analog Synthesizer with a 3340 VCO and a 4-pole OTA VCF with discrete envelope. Yes, the thoughts are right, it will be a similar synthesizer as the iconic Roland SH-101 Synthesizer.
The synth will feature a newly-developed full-size keyboard based on tactile rubber as well as equipment with a wide range of I/O (USB, MIDI, CV/gate in-/output. Interestingly, it owns a sequencer with two layers: one for the internal synth and one for external devices. Another very different feature compared to the Behringer MS-101 is the rechargeability of this synth. The SB-1 will feature a built-in battery that guarantees super portability. I look forward to seeing it at Superbooth. Stay tuned!
What We Know So Far:
- Analog: replica 3340 voltage controlled oscillator and classic 4-pole OTA VCF with discrete envelope- It’s exactly what you think it is.
- Connectivity: USB, MIDI, and CV/gate input and output allow for simple musical interfacing with other synthesizers and modular gear.
- Keyboard: The SB-1 utilizes a newly-developed full-size keyboard based on tactile rubber dome switches for a fast and responsive feel.
- Portability: A precision engineered chassis enables a new form factor that is thinner than one inch, yet rugged enough for everyday portability and use.
- Recharging: The SB-1 is the first ever analog synthesizer to incorporate a rechargeable battery, allowing all-day playability between charges.
- Sequencer: A new dual-layer sequencer allows for synchronized control of a second instrument via CV/gate or MIDI for a dynamic synth duet.
More details will follow soon, no later than on Superbooth 2019.
