About the Synth Geekery Show

Synth Geekery is a weekly podcast/live stream (YouTube) show about everything synthesizers, drum machines, samplers, sequencers, eurorack and music technology. We take the “one of the masses” viewpoint, where we are also users of gear just like you (read: we’re not influenced by commercial product placement).

The show relies on the generous contributions of the synth community. You can contribute in many ways including supporting us via our YouTube Channel Membership or Patreon.

News from the Geekery

This week we have a big list of new synths and gear:

Tone X – IK Multimedia

A speaker/amp model simulation pedal from the lads over in Italy. The pedal can store up to 150 models, 1000 more can be loaded via the software and there’s over 6000 more in the ToneNet that are user downloads.

Price: 399 EURO


Coral – OXI Instruments

The Coral is an 8 voice polyphonic synth module from OXI instruments. Featuring waveforms from VA, FM, wavetable, granular, percussive sources and more. You can select groups of sounds together or separate them into parts. There’s a LP filter with overdrive, envelope generators for AMP and MOD sources, CV inputs and MIDI inputs. It has a stereo L & R output. The main purple knob has primary and secondary functions – plus there’s an SD card slot for loading/saving.

Something like this accompanied with the OXI One or a Korg SQ64 would be an awesome duo in your setup.

Price: 399 EURO (approx)
