The Parva is an
3 DCO analog synth
2x 12dB/Oct. Multimode Filters make 24dB/Oct possible
Class Compliant USB – to be used on any dev like iPads (!) – because you don’t need drivers!
4 OLED Display next to controls
from Austin Texas, USA
mono version $500
Der Parva ist ein interessanter Desktop-Synth mit 8 Stimmen und 3 DCOs – Forum für $1k – der auch USB MIDI Class Compliant ist, damit also auch an jedes iPad passt ohne Treiber: Futuresonus PARVA – Synthesizer
Expert Sleepers new Module LH1 takes USB Controllers – so this is a host for any Controller to be used to generate CVs and gates for
- polyphonic triggering
- generating LFOs on any target (as a usecase) by knob turns
- building a sequencer that is controlled via standard controllers like the Launchpad Control by Novation
- all pots, faders, knobs just can be used to generate CV

Post NAMM Info:
What ppl clicked most: Roland & Waldorfs “Navetable”-Synth – stats from sun 25th.Jan 2015: 19:10 euro time. First 2 items a lot more than others. I wonder why the Prophet 6 isn’t amongst the first 6 (yet?) – maybe because it was announced later then others?
this is the final design of the Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators (PO) – which I mentioned here - at that time $50 .. this time? not yet known. – sequencer – synth in one classic design – like VL1 update of today and can do more than it looks like..
Ok, let’s check again what Kraftwerk are using on stage – since the last tour (the controller leak was posted in the forum as well) –
Better Images where you can see the Creamware Synth etc are @ the Forum Kraftwerk III…
controlling the visuals – searching for something?
everyone has a touch screen and this guy was the only one who had a Mac on stage (Kraftwerk are “Anti-Apple” ever since) on that museum tour showing all their albums as one event (I was at TEE) – here’s touchpads also there is the shuttle pro on top and a track ball – almost classic for visual timeline control etc. – the one on the bottom is much like a Keith McMillen Quneo controller because that’s what it is ;)
well – he’s going back to some control surface – possibly changed the scheme or preset – controlling visuals – I assume.
“Ralf” – playing melodies and vocoder chords aided by some screens. playing a Creamware Minimax , ASB Digital Synthesizer – check the Forum images to have a better view/more details. so it’s unique to see hardware synths again at their show. Since Kraftwerk were Odyssey users maybe it’s Oddity 2 vs. Korg Odyssey they might use — but seems like they– especially “the player” Ralf has always been a Moog guy.
“Henning” – simple controller, a Numark Orbit controller with accelerometer, Novation Remote SL Mk2 Zero and large screen. 2 special (possibly hand made) controllers – do I see the ribbon controller from doepfer here as well?
“Fritz” – that tab is running Lemur for control stuff, NI Maschine (as a controller and pads for triggering samples) and some smaller stuff plus large touch screen and keyboard. and doepfer R2M ribbon controller. some special custom made faders and knobs (or do you know that controller)..
Sooner or later this video might be deleted – http://youtu.be/b16s210t0pk
that software is … what?
Und? Jemand Lust auf eine etwas haarige Diskussion Polarisierer: Kraftwerk III
Yamaha wasn’t presenting any synth at NAMM but they put up a nice history page –
but there’s a little 8 voice synth in it near the AN1x Digital Synthesizer but not exactly IT plus drums – called SynthBook and within the iOS App it’s called AN2015 running on iPhones..
here’s what you can do – see the tabs? it’s quite capable of a lot of synthesis.
and there is plenty of cool things up on their site on history..
as a user of FM synths I enjoyed the programmers they created for editing the first FM prototype – the GS1 .. so in fact they did programmers first that look like very useful:
full GS editor
pre GS programmer for a system called TRX100
DX1 – prototype
my info about Yamahas Synths – and a detailed view on all the FM synth generations.
The GS1 is shown here (I did not add the GS series to the SynthDB yet, but will do!)
A users render about Yamahas future – do you think they do this kind of effort without bringing new synths somewhere sooner/later?
• Hier ein wenig über die App im Forum • AN1X App für nix von Yamaha zum 40..
• und Was ist denn mit Yamaha?
yes, Tom Oberheim is now doing modular – the first module you can get is of course the SEM (theTwoVoice, TVS1, 2Voice subtractive,analog synth has been presented as well – see below)
– Multimode Stereo Phaser (with LFO)
these are not just “repackaged” there are some features – like VCA’s and that makes waveform blending possible.
Ja, Herr Oberheim macht jetzt auch Eurorack-Module
Tom Oberheim goes Eurorack?
you can save your sequences on the Oberheim 2 Voice – or to be exact: it is Tom Oberheim..
und der Oberheim 2voice ist da mit speicherbarem Sequencer – (nicht billig $3495)
it’s a lot like the 1x Multi Timbral, 5 Voice, (1978)
Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Analog Synthesizer but with some additions. -> bold – what is different to the P5
2 VCOs- morphable wave shapes – PWM – Sync, 6 voices
Triangle Sub Generator
Slope for “analog” detuning
low & high pass filter
velocity / env
classic 2x ADSR
LFO with ext. clock sync
64 step polyphonic sequencer !!
2 FX incl Delay.
note: it has 4 instead of 5 octaves – so it is smaller than the P5
Noise seems not to be a modulation source (means: there is a noise generator but not as a mod source)
note: the filters are “new!” the oscs are new! so it isn’t just like the others – so it also sounds different from previous DSI synths with easy user interface
the best video I found which is deeper is this
This synth has analog oscillators, it is therefore closer to the Prophet 08, but it has different filters, that have been developed with the Pro 2, so it is also a different sound to both for different reasons). Dave says it is not the same but more modern and – it has a real easy-to-understand user interface – which is obviously true.
so the Prophet 6 is not cannibalizing DSI (which is the distribution with this synth, still) especially thinking of the P08 it has FM like the P5 had and a different sound.
and yes – Sequential is back without Circuits a new page as well.
…from Yamaha. Here’s the “Sequential Statement” – since Yamaha doesn’t do synths that much these days so Dave is been given the name back! congrats! To me it’s like when Bob Moog got his name back, so we’re waiting for Tom to call his machines Oberheim again (not Tom Oberheim).
und ja: Dave hat was zum freuen Neues von Dave Smith // SCI Prophet 6 (nicht DSI)
Beatstep Pro is not a fake – it’s a 64step sequencer.
clock: analog in/out
16 step buttons
pressure sens.vel. pads
8 gate outs (!)
2 channels -> pitch – gate – velocity (6 jacks)
note tie, 16x 2 sequences, 16 drum sequences (gates), 10Volts max., P: 250€
class compliant (MIDI for iPad)
sonicstate: image of audio fuse, audio interface mentioned in this teaser video:
192khz sampling rate,
route to 2 speakers (a/b)
4 analog in – ADAT in/out ports –> 14 in/out
USB Hub Ports
special functions to bring iPads and Computer together but still it looks a bit confusing..
€549 / $599.
and little case that makes it look like a Mac Mini ;)
nice joke the Polybrute
Polyphonic Analog Synth by Arturia.
4 octave keys
dual OSC from the microbrute
not confirmed yet – it could still be a fake – to me it is very much pixel-generated. and posted in 2014. hmm – doesn’t look like it is real for me things not proper – check yourself:
