News: Rebel Technology Magus on Kickstarter
Rebel Technology has announced the run of a Kickstarter campaign for 3 new synthesizer/products: Magus, Wizard and Alchemist.
We’re running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the first production run of a trilogy of new products: Magus, Wizard and Alchemist. The Kickstarter got fully funded in less than 5 days, so now it’s all systems go!
The Magus is a uniquely patchable, stand-alone synthesizer based on our OWL platform. That means it will run more than 200 patch programs already available in our patch library. It features 20 bidirectional patch points that can be configured as either inputs or outputs, both for self-patching and endless integration possibilities with other gear.
The Rebel Technology Magus is like having a compact modular synthesizer without being limited by the modules you’ve got in it.
Unlike traditional synthesizers, the Magus doesn’t confine itself to a fixed function or paradigm. Whether you want granular, additive, FM, subtractive, spectral, chaotic or stochastic synthesis, Magus gives you the freedom to pick the right algorithm for the job and then lets you loose to patch up a storm.
The Magus’ little brother is the Wizard. It runs the same patches and is also patchable as well as programmable. This means that you can change the signal flow on the fly and connect it to other kit. It is incredibly compact but still sports five assignable control knobs and four buttons, and a total of six patch points. Like the Magus it has both USB MIDI device and host connections so that you can plug your favourite controller straight in – be it keyboard, drum pads, sequencer, grid, or multidimensional controller. It makes an excellent stand-alone synth or effects unit and has huge integration capabilities.
The Alchemist is the baby of the family, but it packs a powerful punch. With four knobs, two trigger buttons, one mode button and trigger and CV inputs it amazingly still fits in your hand.
All three devices have a USB socket and can be powered by USB or by an external DC supply.
