Versyn have announced a new synth called Poseidon which they say is ‘The Ocean of Sound’.
Here’s how they describe it…
At first sight Poseidon looks like a simple structured analog “Oscillator-Filter� synthesizer with all controls visible at once. This gives POSEIDON the ease of use with nearly no learning curve. The real power is working under the hood: The oscillator is nothing less than the award winning spectral modelling sound generator of CUBE. The variable slope Filter is a completely new design based on our unique F-domain synthesis.
