Roman Filippov from Sputnik Modular released in this year of the most discussed new Synthesizer. The Deckard’s Dream, an authentic and modern interpretation of the legendary CS-80 Synthesizer from Yamaha. This instrument is always placed in relation with Vangelis and the Blade Runner soundtrack. There has been much talked about the Deckard’s Dream since Blade Runner 2049 was in theaters in this year, where Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch created the soundtrack with an original CS-80 Synthesizer.
On this years Tokyo Festival of Modular, I created a sound demo video of the Deckard’s Dream and honestly, I must admit the sound demo is not the best and doesn’t cover the classic Blade Runner sounds. Nonetheless, it was a good possibility to check out this new Synthesizer with other sounds not related to the movie.
Sound designer Paul Schilling shared this week new sound demos of the Deckard’s Dream Synthesizer with patches that are inspired by the Blade Runner movie.

Sound Demo II by Paul Schilling
In my opinion has Paul Schilling better covered the sounds of the Blade Runner movies. It sounds in my opinion massive and shows well how powerful this instrument ist.
- 16 VCO’s: 8-voice polyphony with two independent synthesizer layers per voice, discrete waveshapers help to reproduce the oddness of the original waveforms. Autotune keeps all 16 VCOs tracking perfectly, we even offer the detune settings for a vintage feel.
- Polyphonic aftertouch and MPE: MIDI polyphonic aftertouch gives deckard’s dream expression that has only been possible on a very small number of synthesizers. MPE technology (using controllers by ROLI, LinnStrument, Haken) takes this even further with the addition of poly pitch bend
- Yes it’s DIY kit as well: Besides the built units we provide DIY kits with all digital SMT parts preinstalled. A very detailed building manual, large truth hole components and a simple calibration procedure will allow even beginners to build this kit.
- MIDI, USB, VST/AU editor: With the addition of MIDI implementation, 256 presets and a software editor provided by Spektro Audio, this vintage inspired poly synth is at home in any modern studio.
- Analogue effects and CV inputs: 1U rackmount expander is coming later this summer: 16 assignable CV inputs, analogue ring-modulator and chorus, missing Sustain I/II controls. may be used as a standalone effects box and a cv-2-midi convertor.
- Designed and built in Japan: We build the synth in Tokyo, Japan and use high quality components and hardware. Shipping is free anywhere in the world.
