SYNTRX II - a new dark horse for experimental sonic rides
​Peter Zinovieff himself approved Erica Synths' re-imagination of his legendary Synthi AKS in the form of the SYNTRX, which was produced in a limited run of 1056 units. Based on lessons learned from the SYNTRX, Erica Synths has created an instrument which will integrate even deeper into contemporary electronic and experimental music setups, covering sonic territory from daunting drones, to powerful basslines, to glitched noisescapes.

The SYNTRX II is the culmination of Erica Synths' analogue sound design circuits: two perfectly stable main oscillators with waveshapers, a versatile multimode filter, supercharged external instrument inputs with an envelope follower, a unique and beautiful sounding ringmodulator, a recordable joystick, and a built in piano roll sequencer — all arranged around the company's signature matrix mixer. This is all topped off with powerful FX on a new DSP platform.

Features: 

  • Two perfectly stable main oscillators with CV controlled waveforms 
  • Modulation oscillator with variable waveforms 
  • Highpass and Lowpass filters in series 
  • Free running or gate synced sample and hold circuit 
  • Multi-colour noise generator

  • Two assignable outputs 
  • Headphone output

Features: 

  • 6 drum/percussion voices 
  • 3 voices can be used as basslines 
  • Powerful sound design engine 
  • Over 30 adjustable parameters per voice 
  • 5 assignable CV inputs with 1V/Oct tracking 
  • Insert FX section 
  • 4 assignable outputs 
  • Kit memory
  • SD card for Kit exchange and easy FW updates 
  • Kits compatible with the LXR-02
