Thank you for the interest and support for the Motor Synth!
We are successfully approaching the end of Campaign on the 27th of June, 11:59 PM. This still is the very last chance to reserve a Motor Synth at 400 USD off if that’s something you or your friends are after.. 🙂
We have received a lot of requests for additional features and have added them! If you have any further suggestions about additional features, let us know!
An updated, all-analogue signal path and filter
A redesigned signal path allows an external audio input to be modulated with Motor Synth’s LFO using a separate VCA. It will be possible to use the external input as the third voice and send it through Motor Synth’s Drive and VCF stage, or the external input can act as instrument what plays the Motors via pitch tracking.
An updated VCF stage allows to select up to 8 different configurations – from 24dB LP to 24dB HP and asymmetric slope BP.
MIDI and micro-tuning
We are adding MTS (MIDI Tuning Standard) support to enable custom tuning for midi notes. This also ads option to micro-tune notes while playing.
It is now possible to assign key velocity to note volume, note sustain or filter envelope amount through the MOTOR Synth’s menu.
Key pressure can be assigned to voice modulation depth for each voice, filter modulation depth, and master tune for custom vibrato effect, as well as acceleration and brake.
Other parameter assignments for velocity and aftertouch to be announced as we continue to explore new options.
The MOTOR Synth will support multiple slots for saving parameter changes performed live, during a sequence, loop or arpeggiation.
New Motors and Advanced Controlling
We continue to research the technology to control motors and keep them in tune.
Improved control and communication algorithms and hardware will reduce motor response time by a factor of two, enabling an almost instant motor reaction to note input. Frequency change time will be further reduced, it is expected to be within 10ms range.
A Contact Mic
A small contact microphone will be included in the MOTOR Synth Package so one can explore the properties of other motorized things and put them through the MOTOR Synth’s filters and Mod section.
Split mode, 8-voices
To add more options, we are working to add a Split Mode that will enable to control each motor separately, separate tuning for each voice, midi keyboard range assignment and other smaller improvements.
To improve compatibility with modular synth systems, we will add more analog CV inputs that can be assigned to various parameters such as Voice Volume, Filter mod depth, Filter cut-off frequency, Mod frequency or others. A CV input can also be assigned to act as LFO generator. CLK/GATE in and out can be used to gate external oscillators and VCFs etc.
