The Macbeth M5 is a monophonic, three oscillator, two filter, semi-modular analogue synthesizer, crafted by master Scottish synth wizard, Ken Macbeth. These synths were made to order and are now discontinued, which makes them very rare.
A Boxed Ear spokesperson told Sonic State, "The M5's sound is characterised by its full, rich bass, crystal highs and a distinctly analog tone. Huge basses and leads, luscious pads, electric pianos, drums, one-shot effects, and crazy modular bleeps and bloops are all included. The pack has been endorsed by the synth's creator, Ken Macbeth."
To celebrate the launch of their website, Boxed Ear are also giving away a free sample pack of the Roland CompuRhythm CR-78 drum machine.
