Black Corp - Deckard's Dream REV 2.1
LATEST REVISION 2.1 Firmware
deckard's dream is an 8-voice polyphonic analogue synthesizer inspired by a certain cinematic sound from the late 1970s and early 1980s. using technology available today (and in the near future), you will be able to play the deckard's dream with stunning expressive control.
8-voice polyphony with two independent synthesizer layers per voice, discrete waveshapers help to reproduce the oddities of the original waveforms. autotune keeps all 16 vcos tracking perfectly, it even offers detune and microtuning settings for a more vintage feel.
polyphonic aftertouch and mpe
midi polyphonic aftertouch gives deckard's dream expression that has only been possible on a very small number of synthesizers. mpe technology (using controllers by roli, linnstrument, haken) takes this even further with the addition of polyphonic pitch bend.
there is a diy kit as well!
besides the built units we provide diy kits with all digital smt parts preinstalled. a very detailed building manual and large thru-hole components will allow even beginners to build this kit.
midi, usb, vst/au editor
with the addition of midi implementation, 256 presets and an upcoming software editor provided by spektro audio, this vintage inspired poly synth is at home in any modern studio.
analogue effects and cv inputs
a 1u rackmount expander is now available on pre-order featuring 16 assignable cv inputs, ring-modulator, tremolo, and chorus along with sustain i/ii controls. it may also be used as a standalone effects box and cv-2-midi converter.
designed and built in japan
we build the synth in tokyo, japan and use high quality components and hardware. shipping is free anywhere in the world.
