Mr Hyde is the first in a new series of ĎsynthBlocksí. These are small table top effects processor, and later synthesisers and sequencers. Designed by renowned UK synth designers Analogue Solutions who have over 24 years in the industry.
Mr Hyde is an analogue filter effects box use for subtle to extreme filtering and modulation effects.
SynthBlocks are used to process any sound that you feed into it from your DAW, Mixer or some musical instrument (with prior pre-amplification where necessary). To give your plug-ins some real analogue hardware life.
Mr Hyde has 1/4Ē input and output jacks on the rear, so it can be connector straight to a mixer or DAW audio interface without the need for adaptors.
On the top panel are mini jack sockets to patch with a semi-modular synth, such as ASís very own Fusebox, or to Eurorack and other modular systems.
Mr Hyde can change the sound in subtle ways, such as nice sweeping filtering, right up to mangled FM mayhem!
SynthBlocks are a new range of small desk top signal processors. No menus and no software. Just hardware. Typically all analogue, but with some lo-fi digital effects.
The digital musician who uses primarily laptop + plugins, who really wants to use some real analogue hardware to process their sounds. Plug the box into the audio in / out of an audio interface. Then route your drums, synths, strings, vocals etc out the computer, through the transistors and op-amps of Mr. Hyde and record back into the laptop.
Or do a similar thing by connecting to the Auxiliary buss of a mixing desk just as you would any other effects processor.
Turn the dials and flick the switches in real times with your hands (not a mouse!).
It is also ideal for use in conjunction with Eurorack modular, and other synths with CV sockets, such as the Analogue Solutions Fusebox synthesizer. My Hyde can be cross-patched with these type of synths to extend the range of sounds of the whole package.
The synthBlocks are small and affordable, with no comprise in build quality or sounds.
Multiple SynthBlocks can be linked together, not just the audio path, but also the modulation voltages!
Het belangrijkste van muziek, staat niet in de noten...
Ik snap alleen echt werkelijk niet waarom designers doorgaan met inputs onderaan te plaatsen. Zeker voor een desktop design. Wat is de gedachte daarachter?
Volgens mij is er goud geld te verdienen met modules en desktops waarbij cv inputs en outputs bovenaan zitten.
