Erica Synths SYNTRX, a tribute to the legendary EM Synthi AKS with an analog engine powered by an innovative digital matrix is ready for pre-order.

During Dutch Modular 2019, Erica Synths surprised everyone with the SYNTRX analog matrix Synthesizer. It looks like an EMS Synthi AKS clone, but it is not. SYNTRX is heavily inspired by this legendary Synthesizer but Girts and his Synthesizer team including the Riga Technical University developed a completely new analog engine for it with new oscillators and more.

The highlight is certainly the brand-new digital matrix in the middle with a recall & save function. Enough with teasing. Today there was the news that the SYNTRX can now be pre-ordered for 2500€ + 21% VAT, so in total over 3000€. If you preorder it now, shipping starts at the end of April 2020.

Erica Synths SYNTRX

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 most encouraging instruments in experimental music was 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 a sound design.

We believe, it will inspire users to explore the sonic universe and travel to previously undiscovered audible realms.
