CD-Sized Hardware Synth


The bC16 - miniature patch synthesizer has been announced by Chimera Synthesis a new company currently located in the UK, with a shipping office in the US.
The synthesizer packs a fully featured analog VCO, LFO, ADSR envelope generator, VCA, VCF, noise source & ring modulator all in a CD sized case CNC machined from 10mm high-grade acrylic plastic.
Sixteen color coded potentiometers control key functions, connections between synthesizer sections is done using thirty 2mm mini-banana sockets.
Powered by either two 9v batteries or by an external source, the bC16 can be used free standing (internal headphone amplifier), linked to an external sequencer or MIDI-CV converters or combined with other bC16's. Chimera say that being a patch synthesizer almost infinitely expands the range and control of sounds created, bC16's can be integrated with other pieces of equipment, used to process signals, and even used to generate and/or respond to control signals from other synthesizers/audio kit

A low cost optical interface kit is due-out shortly and Chimera tell us that the bC16 can be used with their soon-to-be released (late December) SM16 analog sequencer/MIDI-CV and the pH303 acid bass line synthesizer (due in january). Pricing and Availability:
Available to order today for deliveries starting on 9-11th January 2008. The first batch (limited numbers) are priced at $229.00 each (including USPS Priority delivery - mainland USA only). More information:

    Be warned before buying a chimera synth. Read first the forum with hundreds of complains of angry customers http://chimerasynths.10.forumer.com. Some of them are waiting since a year for there payed synth fed up with lame excuses and fake dispatch dates.
