Parva from Futuresonus is a revolutionary new polyphonic analog synthesizer that combines the classic warmth of an all-analog signal chain with the modern convenience of digital control in an elegantly designed tabletop package. A combination of modular design, smart sourcing, and selling direct has enabled us to spend more on quality components and domestic manufacturing while still offering Parva at an amazingly affordable price.
Parva can be configured as an expandable monophonic synthesizer, or as an eight-note polyphonic, eight-voice multi-timbral synth.
- ANALOG From the oscillators and wave-shapers to the voltage-controlled filters (VCF) and snappy OTA-based voltage-controlled amplifiers (VCA), Parva’s signal path is 100% analog. There’s no DSP here.
- DIGITAL Parva’s digital controls enable you to save and recall patches instantaneously, change parameters via MIDI, and route LFOs and envelopes to more than 40 destinations in the modulation matrix, all without the hassle of patch cables.
- POLYPHONY Parva can be configured for up to eight note polyphony. Extremely flexible voice assignment allows you to stack as many voices as you like for more complex sounds, split the keyboard up to eight ways, or both in any combination. Parva’s polyphony support even extends to aftertouch control.
- CONTROL With its smooth analog potentiometers, Parva gives you direct access to all of the most commonly used parameters. Plus, each section of the synth has additional settings displayed on a high-visibility OLED, so the perfect patch is never more than a click away.
- CONNECTIVITY Parva is the first analog synthesizer to feature a USB Master port, which allows you to connect any class-compliant USB MIDI keyboard — or other controller — directly, without the need for a computer. Of course, standard MIDI DIN in and out connections and a “normal” USB port are also included, as well as individual outputs for each voice, and a stereo headphone jack.
- CONSTRUCTION From the aluminum enclosure to the custom-machined aluminum knobs on sturdy panel-mounted pots, Parva was designed with working musicians in mind, and built to last. Each unit is hand-assembled in Austin, TX.
