Grendel DC-2, Formant Filter, RA-99 Grenadier

Key of C minor, tempo 84 BPM.
This synth demonstration from Rare Waves uses the Grendel DC-2 as a tone source. Grendel Formant Filter provides vowel filtering, and Grendel RA-99 Grenadier is performing the LFO duties. Rare Waves Hydronium is used as a MIDI-CV converter to set the pitch of the DC-2’s oscillators. In the picture you also see a prototype Polyphonic Strobe Tuner, which provides a real-time pitch analysis. Also heard in the mix are our prototypes of a Surf Sound Synthesizer and Spring Reverb.
