Don’t Forget

Synth guru Dave Smith of Dave Smith Instruments designed the Evolver Analog Synthesizer to create entirely original sounds from the interaction of analog and digital electronics, especially with the extensive use of tunable feedback. When things get weird, the Evolver Synthesizer's analog circuitry keeps the signal in line just enough to make wild sounds instead of pain. And the feedback is constantly moving differently in each path, providing some very cool stereo ambiance to the sounds.

Comments about Dave Smith Instruments Evolver Analog Synthesizer:

This is one amazing little tabletop unit. Quite a Huge sounding monophonic synthesizer. It's a modern day Sequential Circuits Pro-One and then some. And it's Analog. With 4 x 16 step analog style sequencers built right in. Which can be linked to MIDI. And an optional available editor you can also create patches on your computer and drop them right into this Blue Badboy.
