Erica Synths' description of the Erica Synths SYNTRX analog synthesizer

SYNTRX [sintrex] is an all analogue synthesizer, developed from scratch, with a digitally controlled analogue patch/mixer matrix.

Since its beginnings Erica Synths has promoted experimental electronic music and has developed instruments that enable musicians to unleash their creativity. When it comes to standalone instruments, we think, one of the most encouraging instruments in experimental music was the Synthi AKS, so we teamed up with engineers from Riga Technical University to develop a synthesizer with a user interface that challenges conventional wisdom in sound design. We believe it will inspire users to explore the sonic universe and travel to previously undiscovered audible realms.
