Danish electronic instrument manufacturer, Gotharman recently announced on Facebook that their Urano Modular Synthesizer is available for pre-ordering. However, due to the current global chip shortage, it is expected that the availability of this instrument might be limited. According to their Facebook post, only ten units are available, with shipping scheduled to start on 1/10-2021. Shortly afterward, their official website stated that the instrument is sold out and that they are busy sourcing parts.

Like all Gotherman products, Urano is being handcrafted in Denmark using the highest quality parts. Urano is a modular synthesizer with memory, and all the connections between modules, module settings, sequences, and sample assignments can be memorized for instant recall. It also continues the Gotherman instruments tradition of each preset containing two versions of the preset that can be morphed between. In addition to being able to connect Urano to your Eurorack, it will hold all your samplings and wavetables in memory even after a power cycle. Gotherman made some changes to Urano compared to Anamono X. The most notable is that it only has one bus for handling both audio and modulation, which means everything can be connected to everything.

Urano features an impressive list of build-in modules, which includes the following:

  • -8 Oscillators - Waveforms, noise, drum oscillators, samplings, wavetables, quadrature.
  • -Up to 4 analog filters. Compatible with the Gotharman filter board system.
  • -8 digital filters - 27 filter types. Standard filters, triple filters, sharp filters, tube filters...
  • -8 VCA's - with ADSR envelope, various curves, and a clip parameter. Can be triggered by any source.
  • -8 Effects Processors - Many of the LD effects plus a new reverb, a wavefolder, and some new pitch effects.
  • -8 LFO's - With variable waveform and curve. Key syncable.
  • -8 Envelopes - ADSR + decay envelope with loop options. Can be triggered by any source.
  • -5 Random Generators.
  • -4 Ring VCA's.
  • -2 Mixer modules, that can add extra inputs to any module.
  • -Output module - Sends up to 8 sources to the outputs, and handles the stereo panning.
  • -Trigger Input module - Assign the trigger inputs to parts and sequencer functions.
