After the release of their “Birth of the PULSAR” documentary a few weeks ago, SOMA is back with another video that is sure to turn a few heads. They released a video to showcase what their new Enner analog synthesizer is capable of, and the results are unique, to say the least. 

Enner, which has been in development for the past two years, was inspired by and developed together with Danish sound-artist Dalin Waldo, aka SiSTOR. She not only came up with the name but also created the design of the front panel. According to SOMA, Enner is an expressive sound tool that is able to generate bits, pads, FX, noises, clicks, and glitches. In addition, it can function as a vocal mic with built-in analog FX. However, what really makes Enner unique is that it functions on the key principle of using your hands as a central part of the circuitry. All signals that make a sound pass through and are managed by your body when playing the synth. This means that the mixing, volume, timbre, feedback, and other synthesis parameters are defined by touching different contact pads with different parts of your fingers and palms with varying amounts of pressure. The pots, which are all metallic, also function as inputs or outputs, so touching them changes parameters and patches the audio signals. There’s a lot more information on the official website (https://somasynths.com/enner/), but for those who want to see and hear Enner in action, check out the video below.

Enner is available in black and red versions and is only manufactured in Russia. Without VAT, shipping, customs, or money transfer expenses, the net price is 440 Euros. Soma has stated that the synth is absolutely safe for humans but warned that a body-patching synth might not be the best choice for you if you are exceptionally sensitive.
