IK Multimedia has announced the UNO Synth Pro and UNO Synth Pro Desktop, fleshed-out updates of the popular UNO Synth with new paraphonic capabilities.
The synths were conceived in a collaboration with Italian boutique synth-maker Soundmachines. Both feature three wave-morphing oscillators, dual filters, a 64-step sequencer, expanded CV/Gate capabilities and 256 presets. The UNO Synth Pro also comes with a 37-key Fatar keybed.
Joining the original UNO Synth’s 2-pole OTA multi-mode filter is a new SSI 2/4-pole LP filter with self-oscillation. The latter is from the same family as the filter in the new Prophet-5. Both can be run in series or in parallel.
There are also two onboard ADSR envelopes, two LFOs for classic synth modulation action and a 16-slot mod matrix that can route both internal and external sources – including MIDI controllers.
Meanwhile the 10-mode arpeggiator lets you create intricate patterns and runs, with a new chord mode that takes advantage of the paraphonic design to pull off triads and other chords.
A handful of onboard effects round out these synths’ features, including an analogue overdrive circuit taken from the original UNO Synth and 12 digital effects spanning modulation, delay and reverb. Helpfully, these can be applied to external signals, too.
Beyond the expected I/O of two balanced stereo outputs, dedicated headphone out and USB, there are 5-pin DIN MIDI ports and assignable CV/Gate connections.

The UNO Synth Pro and UNO Synth Pro Desktop are set to launch in Q1 2021, priced at $649.99 and $399.99, respectively.
