The ultimate creation from late analogue synth pioneer Dave Smith has been introduced – right here’s all the things we learn about Sequential’s Trigon-6.
The Trigon-6 represents Sequential’s tackle the ‘three-oscillator-plus-ladder-filter’ analogue sound extra usually related to Moog synth structure.
The six-voice polysynth stars three newly designed VC oscillators with triangle, noticed and pulse waves, and an overhauled model of the ladder filter discovered on the Professional 3 monosynth.
The resonant filter is switchable from two-pole to four-pole and routes to devoted drive and suggestions controls that “make it easy to go from daring and crunchy to silky and clean,” says Sequential.
Trigon-6 can also be flushed with the total vary of Sequential sound-sculpting skills, together with snappy envelopes, a syncable LFO with a wide range of waveforms and mod locations, a polyphonic step sequencer, and an arpeggiator.
These options are at all times inside attain, as Trigon-6’s design structure takes a knob-per-function method. And right here’s a bonus enjoyable reality: Tycho, AKA Scott Hansen, was the graphic designer behind the synth’s entrance panel.
Results embody studio-quality reverbs, delays (regular and BBD), refrain, flanger, phaser, and ring modulator in a dual-module setup. Plus, the impartial stereo distortion impact allows you to add utterly analogue grit to your sounds.
As a leaping off level, Trigon-6 provides you 500 manufacturing unit presets – starting from basic bass, leads and pad sounds – together with 500 person presets slots to your personal sonic cocktails.
Poly mod, which lets management or audio alerts modulate different onboard parameters, makes a return on Trigon-6. Sequential says it’s added “enhancements” with sound design in thoughts: “Modulation sources are filter envelope and oscillator 3 (each with bi-polar management). Locations embody oscillator 1, 2, and three frequency, oscillator 1, 2, and three pulse width, filter cutoff, and suggestions. Unison mode is right here as properly, that includes configurable voice depend (1-6 voices for as much as 18 simultaneous oscillators) and key modes.”
After which there’s the Classic knob, which provides voice-to-voice variations in calibration and part behaviours, to take the Trigon-6 from pristine, trendy synth workstation to a battle-hardened steed.
Maybe we’ve stated sufficient, right here’re the sound demos:
The Sequential Trigon-6 might be out there at a road worth of $3,499.
