About our products
These synthesizers will turn your audio source into analog synth waves, CV signals and MIDI (with MIDVertor E1)
Our pitch tracking synthesizers feature the shortest latency performance giving you all synth control signals: CV outputs, MIDI output* and oscillator sound itself. In addition, Sonicsmith is currently offering 2 products powered conveniently by either a 9V PSU and 2 new products for the Eurorack environment. Both our 9V Squaver P1 and our new Eurorack ConVertor E1 will turn any monophonic audio into analog synth waves while giving you CV outputs of gate, pitch and envelope control voltages. The Squaver P1 and our MIDVertor E1 also feature expression pedal inputs for real-time, hands-free, continuous control with a CV output.
Both feature our own designed extensive preamp section with a clean 40dB gain range, HP and LP filters and two ENV followers both on the main input and on the side-chain input for alternative ENV control. They will both synthesize a square wave and a sawtooth wave with a front panel wave mix knob. Two CV inputs are available for arpeggiating the main pitch of the ACO. Their fabulous sound and rapid response have to be played with to be believed. But don't just take our word for it, check out these testimonials from musicians who have tried our synths:
