Free Minimoog samples from Legowelt. New synths due at Superbooth. TED explores vinyl culture.
I hear voices. Japan’s Black Corporation – makers of the obsessively brilliant Yamaha CS80 clone Deckard’s Dream – will be debuting a new 8-voice polyphonic synth at Superbooth 2018. The Kijimi is inspired by the super-rare RSF Polykobol, Synthtopia report. Take a look at the first teaser image above.

Gear up. Superbooth 2018 will also see U-he, best known for their software output, debut their first ever hardware in the form of a Eurorack module. Check out the teaser above.
