An easy-to-program, ultra-compact real analog synthesizer.
■ Analog synthesizer
UNO Synth is a portable monophonic hardware synthesizer with fully analog circuitry. The development involves the skilled Italian hardware synth maker Soundmachines and Erik Nolander, the synth master of IK and the centerpiece of Alesis's famous Andromeda and Syntronik. Not only is UNO Synth affordable, it's also designed to be easy for beginners to analog synths and synth programming. With preset sounds, a keyboard you can set the scale, and an arpeggiator, it's unmatched in ease of use.
High-quality sound produced from real analog circuits
UNO Synth has a synthesis engine with a pure analog audio circuit that can obtain a sound that is as powerful, fat and high quality as an expensive analog synthesizer in a compact housing.
Easy to do complicated programming
UNO Synth comes with 100 ready-to-use preset sounds (80 can be overwritten) so you can start playing right out of the box. Of course, the presets are not only the tones, but also the arpeggios and sequences that have been carefully constructed.
Ultra-compact and dry cell/USB driven
The UNO Synth measures 25.6 cm x 15 cm and is one of the smallest compact housings in a mono synth, weighing only 400 grams. It's powered by 4 AA batteries or USB bus power, including mobile batteries, so you can take your favorite sounds with you anytime, anywhere.
Stand-alone or combined with a keyboard or DAW
You can use UNO Synth as a powerful analog synth module for live performances and recordings by connecting it to your favorite master keyboard from the MIDI IN/OUT port. Also, by connecting to a Mac/PC or mobile device with a USB MIDI port, it can be used in an integrated manner with MIDI-handling tools such as DAWs.
