Puremagnetik has released Verv, a synthesizer inspired by tape loops, Mellotrons and other time-worn analog recordings.
Modeled after the 1970s Freeman String Symphonizer and ARP Solina, Verv has a dual-oscillator and carefully constructed ensemble modulation reminiscent of the classics.
Verv also employs a final stage Tape Loop effect that emulates a splice of tape that can be "aged" to varying degrees. Once turned up to its maximum range, this effect creates wow, flutter and other worn-out tape artifacts.
Despite being designed as a string synthesizer, Verv is capable of a wide variety of sounds. It has a morphable saw to triangle oscillator. Similar to classic Buchla synthesizers, you can add or subtract harmonics with the "Shape" control. There is also a dedicated Sub oscillator - fixed as a pulse wave - that can be used as a standalone bass synth, similar to an MC-202.
