UDO unveil Super Gemini polysynth

Hybrid synthesizer boasts 20-voice polyphony

UDO Super Gemini hybrid analogue digital polysynth polyphonic synthesizer true stereo aftertouch

UDO have announced the release of their latest instrument, the Super Gemini, a bi-timbral hybrid synthesizer that features up to 20-voice polyphony and boasts a 61-note semi-weighted keybed with polyphonic aftertouch.

The instrument is built around a powerful sound engine, with its digital oscillators equipped with features that include cross and ring modulation, wave morphing and bi-directional sync. The remainder of the instrument’s signal path is then completely analogue, and is said to have been inspired by the classic vintage instruments of the past. The combination of new and old technology promises to combine the sonic character of classic polysynths with the power, flexibility and reliability of a modern digital instrument.

A true stereo signal path is maintained throughout the Super Gemini, which employs a pair of FPGAs and twin effects processors. The instrument is also capable of using its 20 voices to create 10 ‘super voices’, a method which allows the left and right channels to be assigned with their own dedicated voice, allowing users to create extremely dynamic spatial patches.

Dual-layer controls offer comprehensive control over multiple timbral layers, and plenty of expressive control is on also offer thanks to the inclusion of a polyphonic aftertouch keybed, which is joined by a custom ribbon sensor designed to provide gestural control over synth parameters and note articulation.

We’ll be checking out the Super Gemini at this week’s Superbooth show, keep an eye on the SOS YouTube channel to see and hear more.
