Eowave presents their analog synth Magma at the Messe

The MAGMA is an analogue bassline synthesizer inspired by classical synths from the 1980s. It offers the possibility to mix 4 different waveforms (saw, square, sub, noise). The 24 dB low-pass filter is also inspired from classical filters from the 80s.

To this particular sound of the 80s, we added a touch of modernity with modern controls and parameters saving features. The 16 steps sequencer has 4 rows: 1 for the notes and 3 freely assignable to a parameter of your choice that enables to create living sequences with sonorities like Vince Clark or Jan Hammer.

Technical specifications

Oscillator section
– analogue VCO with square saw sub (sub can be 1 or 2 octaves below the master freq), noise.
– VCO can be modulated by LFO and PW
– Variable glide
– mixer to mix the 4 waveforms

Filter section
Full analogue VCO, filter, VCA.
– external audio with a trimmer to feed the filter
– 24dB low pass filter roland style for a classical 80s sound
– filter can be modulated by env2, KB, lfo.

VCA section
– Vca is affected to env1
– 2 envelopes ADSR modulate respectively the amplitude and the filter.
Attack goes from 2ms to 10s.

LFO section
– LFO with 8 waveforms (triangle, ramp up, ramp down, square, random, digital noise, staircase up, staircase down)
