The easily assembled CRAFTsynth Monophonic Synthesizer Kit from Modal Electronics ships on five separate boards that snap together without tools or solder. Once assembled, the instrument features a 2-oscillator-per-voice architecture with a wide range of in-depth manipulations, such as detune and fine-detune for OSC2, as well as waveform selections including Sine, SAW PWM, Noise, and FM (OSC2 modulating OSC1 pitch). Additionally, the Unison/Spread mode splits the oscillators into four separate sub oscillators per oscillator, virtually expanding your synth to a total of eight oscillators, which are also de-tunable for a massive sound.

The resonant low-pass filter can become state-variable when using the CRAFTapp—a free software editor and controller for iOS, OSX, Windows, and Android—that expands the functionality greatly and offers custom envelope generation, unlimited patch storage, and other enhancements. The CRAFTsynth offers 16 recallable EG presets and 16 preset storage locations for quick and easy recall of your favorite settings.

The on-board, invertible LFO features four waveforms including Sine, Tri, Saw, and Square, which can be routed to six destinations (VCA amplitude, filter cutoff, FM amount, OSC mix, PWM amount, pitch/frequency). The LFO will auto-sync to MIDI clock if present. The instrument offers class-compliant MIDI over USB connection to a host computer or tablet. The playable touch panel interface features five note keys plus controls for scale and glide time. The touch-panel interface's keys are clearly labelled with its primary function, giving you the ability to change between scales and more. Delay and distortion effects are also included for adding harmonics and texture to your sound. A headphone and line output are included for direct monitoring as well as outputting the CRAFTsynth to speakers and other audio devices. The synthesizer itself is powered via a USB cable or an optional AA battery pack.

  • Monophonic DSP-based self-assembly synthesizer, requires no soldering or electronics skills, tools, or knowledge
  • 2 oscillators per voice
  • Mixer stage for Osc levels
  • Unison / spread mode that splits the oscillators into four separate sub oscillators per oscillator giving you a total of eight oscillators, de-tunable for a huge sound
  • LFO with six destinations (VCA amplitude, filter cutoff, FM amount, OSC mix, PWM amount, pitch/frequency)
  • Four LFO waveforms (each invertible)
  • LFO auto syncs to MIDI clock if present
  • Resonant low-pass filter (if using the CRAFTapp, state variable BP & LP also possible)
  • 16 recallable EG presets for ease of use
  • 16 patch-storage locations
  • Playable touch-panel interface with five note keys plus controls for scale and glide time
  • Delay and distortion (wave-shaping overdrive, not bit-crushing) effects
  • Class-compliant MIDI provided over USB connection to host computer or tablet
  • Headphone and line output
  • Power by USB or optional AA battery pack (Adafruit 727, 3 x AAA pack)
