Dreadbox Antiphon is not the typical bread and butter analog DIY synth voice but it melds 8 sine oscillators and a spring reverb in a very unique sound machine for the Euroack format.
The developers of Dreadbox present their big synth news always at Superbooth like the Erebus 3 or NYX 2. In between they show always small bites like the Lil’Erebus, a little DIY synth voice for Eurorack. Now they are back with a very exciting new DIY product. Rose, 8 sine oscillators and a spring reverb, that’s how you could summarize Antiphon, the new synth voice for Eurorack.
The key point is here: it’s something new unique and not again a VCO/VCF/ADSR/VCA design. ANTIPHON is a synth voice that features 8 sine oscillators, each with individual output, pitch & level control and CV inputs. Oscillator 7 and 8 can also be used as an LFO with a range of 1min up to 10kHz. Further, it offers two filters including a 2-pole non-resonant lowpass and highpass filter. Next, it also includes an exponential VCA but without an envelope. So it’s more a drone synth with 8 oscillators.

The new Antiphon will not be the only new Eurorack module. In the official video demo there are clear references to new Dreadbox modules which are very colorful. On one recognizes the name Utopia. Possible a new range of modules: oscillator, filter, envelopes…
