Product information "Future Retro - XS"

The Future Retro XS offers charming, yet hefty sound with remarkable expressiveness. It is perfect for creating meaty basses, soft to aggressive leads and powerful drums. Thanks to its thought-through routing system, that incorporates audio signals as well as control voltages, the monophonic desktop synthesizer is also capable of creating a wide range of experimental audio effects. MIDI connectors plus Audio and CV jacks allow easy integration in any studio or live setup.

Please note: Rack ears are not included!

The Future Retro XS comes along in a solid metal case. The instrument features two main VCOs plus a sub oscillator / ring modulator. Besides creating normal waveforms, the VCOs can also be used to tie-in the white noise generator or the audio input of the unit. Following the synthesis section, a mixer sums up all signals. The results are then fed into a multimode filter with four modes of operation. Afterwards, there is a VCA in the signal path. For modulation purposes, the instrument offers a LFO with four waveforms and two envelopes with different designs. One of the latter has two sets of attack and decay potentiometers for normal use and accents. The XS is semi-modular and can be used as a MIDI-CV interface.
