JoMoX SunSyn

Jomox introduces their first major analog real-time synthesizer. It's a true analog with 8 voices (4- and 6-voice versions available) housed in a classic looking desktop-style case with wood end-cheeks, 40 knobs, 42 buttons and 85 LED's! It's also rack-mountable if you prefer.

The SunSyn features 2 analog oscillators (VCO's) per voice. The waveforms include sawtooth, square and pulse with pulsewidth-modulation. But in addition to these are the new Ramp Controlled Oscillators (RCO's). The RCOs follow the VCO characteristics like modulation, sync, tuning and frequency alterations. The RCO's use digital sounds which come from 4 wavesets, each with 256 waveforms each. In effect, these digital sounds get an analog treatment for nicer, warmer and fatter tones. There are 4 RCO's per voice and wavesets can be added via PCMCIA-card.

The filter section is also a true analog design but with very modern features. It is a 4-pole filter but fully configurable with independent high pass and low pass features available. Create filters that range from the sounds of a Minimoog, to the squelchy 303. Filter settings can be stored in one of two scene memories and real-time Morphing between scenes can be accomplished.

As for modulation, JoMoX has devised a clever Routing System for the SunSyn, turning it into an 8-voice modular! It is used to virtually patch between various modules or parameters. There are up to 4 Routing Elements per voice with 4,096 possible combinations per Routing Element. Modulation paths are configured using the front panel display screens. This modular approach to signal routing is a feature usually found only on the huge, expensive classic Modular synths by ARP, E-mu, Moog and Buchla. Unlike those, however, the SunSyn features complete patch memory (350 patches and 150 multi-patches) and multitimbral MIDI implementation. Most parameters can be controlled by MIDI, and controller/editor templates for most sequencers will be, or already are available. As for output, there are stereo outs, 8 freely routable individual outs and a stereo input to run external audio through the Routing system.

The new SunSyn is a true analog synth built for the wealthy synthesists of today. For total analog control and sounds, check out the SunSyn, especially if you can afford it!

As used live by Orbital at their recent BBC gig, recorded at Maida Vale studios, you can see the Sunsyn clearly in the last half of the Halcyon (Pt 2) video linked here...

Jurgens is amazing enthusist with vast knowledge of building synths. This one is pinnacle of his practical know-how. Way mor advanced than any Oberheim, Sequential, Moog or even modern analogue. It is subtle and gig simultaneously, it has silky, smooth sound that puts it in very different league and must have for afficionados. Built like tank by guy who is the last among traditional hand-made builders. Price killed the project as electronica musicians are generally poor and cannot afford real Custom Shop level instrument. Version 2.0 is cream on the cake. It is modern Jupiter 8.

Sunsyn V2.0 has no bugs or at least they are not apparent in my style of using this fantastic machine. This synth has no real competitor, it is totally different architecture from classic analogue synths and in same time it shares core sonic qualities with the best analogue synths of the past.
It is one of a kind boutique product, real king among the best like Omega 8, Jupiter 8 or Oberheim OB8.
