Superbooth 2019

I wanted to start writing and sharing some of the things I like and enjoy, and possibly some frustrations that occur during development of a project. This is the first post of these ‘ad-hoc’ blog posts, so do check back often.

Superbooth

Well, Superbooth 2019 has been and gone, it was by all accounts an incredible event, alas I wasn’t able to attend this year, but hopefully next year.
I noticed a few really interesting things in the news that came out of them, so I’d like to share some of my thoughts about things that caught my eye.

UDO Super 6

Wow, such a great synth. I was lucky to be privy to some of George’s prorotyping and it sounded good and original, but this was a whole new level of awesome. Such a great sound and something new.
George loves creating something new and something different but with a respectful nod to what has come before and the Super 6 looks perfect.
I’m really looking forward to having some quality one on one time with this in the, hopefully not to distant, future.

Korg Minilogue XD Desktop

I really liked the minilogue for it’s features and sound, but I really don’t like minikeys (I have sausages for fingers) so the desktop version really got me excited. It’s something I will almost certainly be adding to my synth arsenal at some point.

MFB 8 voice polysynth

Wow, I really wasn’t expecting this! ok it’s a prototype so it’s not the prettiest things yet, but it’s great spec – 3 oscillators with FM, 2 LFOs, 3 envelopes, dual VCF, effects and a small form factor. It promises to be great when it’s finished.

IK Multimedia Uno drum

What a fabulous sounding drum machine, it seems to cover 808/909 style sounds as well as maintaining it’s own unique sound, I’ve got the uno synth which sounds great and this will make a fabulous addition to that.
