Eowave Announces Magma Analog Bass Synth
Eowave has announced the MAGMA, a new analog bassline synthesizer with a built-in sequencer and preset memory. The MAGMA, formally known as the KOMA when it was in prototype form, has been in development for over two years. Eowave is going to trot the MAGMA out at this year’s Musikmesse in Frankfurt (Hall 5.1, booth A80A).
The MAGMA is an analogue bassline synthesizer inspired by classical synths from the 1980s and offers the possibility to mix four different waveforms (saw, square, sub, noise). The 24 dB low-pass filter is also inspired from the classic filters of the time, but Eowave provides modern controls and the ability to save parameters. The 16 step sequencer has four rows: 1 for the notes, and 3 freely assignable to any parameter of your choice.
» Oscillator section
— analog VCO with square saw sub (sub can be 1 or 2 octaves below the master freq), noise.
— VCO can be modulated by LFO and PW
— Variable glide
— mixer to mix the 4 waveforms
» Filter section
– Full analogue VCO, filter & VCA
— external audio with a trimmer to feed the filter
— 24dB low pass filter (Roland style for a classical 80s sound)
— filter can be modulated by ENV2, KB, LFO
» VCA section
— VCA is affected to ENV1
— 2 envelopes ADSR modulate respectively the amplitude and the filter.
— Attack goes from 2ms to 10s.
» LFO section
— LFO with 8 waveforms (triangle, ramp up, ramp down, square, random, digital noise, staircase up, staircase down)
— audio in
— audio out
— MIDI in
— USB (for software update and MIDI in/out)
— 16 steps sequencer with LED
— 4 rows: 1 row controls gates and notes.
— 3 other rows are freely assignable to any parameter of the front panel.
— You can transpose the sequencer with an external MIDI keyboard.
Eowave’s Magma will be available sometime this Spring for €599.
