AJHSynth announces limited number of exact recreations of The RadioPhonic synthesizer

AJHSynth is proud to announce that it has been specially commissioned by Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer to custom-build The RadioPhonic. This one-of-a-kind, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink super-synth is an analogue modular system beyond compare. It is destined to take center stage in a newly recreated Radiophonic Workshop at London’s iconic Maida Vale Studios. The BBC sold the complex to a partnership including Zimmer, and it is undergoing a multi-million-pound refurbishment.

Hans Zimmer, one of the greatest and most prolific film composers, is known for his innovative integration of electronic sounds with traditional orchestral arrangements. His extensive collection of synthesizers, including modular systems, underscores his dedication to music and soundscapes.

Clients like Hans Zimmer, who have a profound understanding of sound, are rare. He has used AJHSynth’s analogue Eurorack modules for years, praising their depth and quality. AJHSynth’s Design Director, Allan J Hall, is equally an admirer of Zimmer’s work.

Zimmer’s vision for The RadioPhonic channels the EMS VCS 3 ‘Putney’ synthesizer, the first synth he owned. The beautiful American Walnut and Cherry wood case of The RadioPhonic echoes the VCS 3 design. It features carefully curated modules that extend the sonic possibilities beyond those of the original BBC Radiophonic Workshop’s EMS Synthi 100 ‘Delaware’ system.

Zimmer’s exclusive commission has allowed AJHSynth to produce a limited number of exact recreations of The RadioPhonic. These will be available for purchase, with the first launch at SUPERBOOTH24, May 16-18, in Berlin.

The recreated RadioPhonic systems, built to order, are priced at £15,000.00 GBP (including VAT). This ensures that even those outside the film industry can access this analogue modular marvel.
