Norand, a synth startup from France, recently revealed more about their upcoming Norand Mono synthesizer. The company, which was formed by ex-developers of Squarp Instruments, promises to deliver a fully-featured analog synthesizer with an all-analog signal path, endless modulations, a powerful sequencer, and a creative randomizer.

One of the standout features of Mono is contextual modulation, which according to Norand is a unique modulation system giving users full control over every parameter. Each parameter also has its own envelope as well as audio-frequency modulator. Users can simply touch a knob to select the underlying parameter, making it easy to unleash the Mono's full creative potential.

While it makes use of a minimalist, two oscillator, one filter set-up, Mono is capable of a wide palette of sounds. Features such as thru-zero analog frequency modulation, undo-redo for up to 1024 actions, enough storage for 32 projects, and per-step controls make this a synth that should not be underestimated.

Shipping for the Norand Mono is expected to begin in January of 2021, narrowly missing out on being a great Christmas gift to end off this year. Pre-orders for the Norand Mono will open this month with a 333€/$ deposit. The full price is 666€/$ which is 25% off the retail price of 890€/$. However, only a limited batch of 100 units will be ready to ship in January 2021, so if you are interested head over to the official website and subscribe to secure yourself a position on the waitlist.
