Analogue Solutions has announced the fourth production run for its complete analogue synthesis system, Colossus.
Colossus pays homage to vintage systems such as the EMS Synthi 100 and ARP 2500 – though it’s not a recreation of either one in particular. Instead, it features circuits designed by Analogue Solutions, featuring designs from some of its back catalogue. If you own a Polymath, Telemark or Vostok, you might just find something familiar here.
The system includes twelve oscillators with multi-vernier knobs, twelve VCAs, eight filters (four LPF and 4 multi-mode) with dedicated envelopes. There are dual 64-step sequencers, two spring reverbs, ring modulators, a built-in oscilloscope and more.
Colossus also features no USB or MIDI connectivity, a design choice that obviously stems from the accordance to old school synth sensibilities. While this might turn some off, some die-hard synth fans will ultimately appreciate the decision.
Watch Colossus in action below:
Like previous production runs, each Colossus features hardwood panels, a metal case and is made to order. Each is priced at a whopping £25,000.
