The kagouyar is a semi modular polyphonic virtual analogue synthesizer. It combine a simple usage and a huge range of sonic possibilities. Thanks to state of the art technologies, it feel like an analogue synthesizer, but include numerous feature and option never seen in a vintage synthesizer. Versatile and intuitive, it will surprise you in many way!
Designed for sound exploration, the kagouyar is the ultimate synthesizer for drone oriented performance, soft ambient music and hardcore techno. Controls have been tailored to give access to a wide palette of sounds ranging from mellow soundscape to harsh noise.
Compact, it will easily fit in your backpack to your next gig, but big enough to stay in the center of your studio. Be ready to dive into sound synthesis, this machine will unleash your creativity!
4 polyphony voices
With 4 voices of polyphony, you will be able to create lot’s more than simple harmony!
3 oscillators per voice with atypical waveforms and modulations
Oscillators include standard analogue waveform like sinus, saw or square, but also digital generators, chaotic variations and other specific waveforms. All of them include a modulation that add complexities to the shape of the wave.
Each VCO admint 3 potentiometers allowing the use of any oscillator or LFO to modulate the amplitude, the frequency, the phase, the Waveform, and more…
A multimod filter (including a 24dB/Oct low pass) allows a fat subtractive synthesis.
The 7 LFO can inter-modulate to create complexes rhythmic sequences, strange variations or automatic animation. Your sound is alive!
Patching is simple thanks to it’s semi modular conception.
The kagouyar use tactile switch in combination with a modulation matrix
2 Audio effect
2 audio effects (to choose from simple distortion, waveshaper, echo, Doppler effect, etc) allows more authority to your sound, and a more expressive range. The kagouyar can produce anything from soft and round musical layer to fat glitch or digital raw sound.
Intuitive and compact
There is no menu : every functionalities are available with only 2 simultaneous touch. The 46 potentiometers allow to control all parameters at the tip of your fingers.
As light as a small laptop, the kagouyar will fit in any bag and follow you everywhere.
