British Silver Machine
Synthi V completely captures the spirit of the unique analog synth that burst out of ‘70s London to inspire the entire emerging electronic music world—and it has new superpowers to inspire your world today
Your music is begging for a different kind of synth sound. Look no further than Synthi V.
Synthi V brings you all the experimental excitement of EMS’ legendary 3-oscillator analog synths—now infused with thoroughly modern enhancements. Venture beyond unusual lead and bass sounds to create soundscapes and sci-fi effects ranging from beautiful to bizarre and everything in between.
Synthi V will bring out the synth wizard in you. What new sounds will you conjure up?
Compact form meets modular function
The British-born EMS family of synths—featuring the sonically identical Synthi AKS and VCS3—were among the first to distill modular synthesizer functionality into a more portable form. Where most competitive designs like the Minimoog sacrificed flexibility to size and simplicity, EMS retained a modular heart through the genius of one of the first matrix patchbays to grace a synth. That additional versatility led to more experimentation outside of melodic norms and into the more electronic realms of psychedelia and sci-fi effects. Cue Pink Floyd’s “On the Run” from “The Dark Side of the Moon” LP.
Synthi V is the perfect evolution of the synth that turned a lot of heads. Now you can use it to turn some heads of your own.
If you're one of the lucky ones who owns or has played a Synthi or VCS3, you'll not only be amazed at how accurate our model is, but also blown away by its dramatic enhancements and new features. If you've never had the joy of experiencing the original, you're in for a treat with Synthi V.
Like the original, Synthi V is one fat, edgy beast that begs experimentation. In addition to making minor mods, we’ve added a whole new set of digital tools that bring this instrument to the vanguard of today’s music. A modern step sequencer, dedicated beat-syncable LFO, and on-board effects are just some of the sonic goodies that will make Synthi V your new obsession. You also now have the power of full matrix modulation targeting every single parameter with totally variable signal strength.
Oh, yeah… did we mention that we’ve turned this awesome monophonic synth into a 4-voice poly? You’re welcome!
