Future Retro has a new synthesizer under development called Vectra and features 4 joysticks for some serious vectoring.

Vectra

Jered Flickinger of Future Retro says that he’s been working on this synth since the beginning of the year and it’s totally consumed him. He’s just released an epic 52-minute demo video of the unit that is being beta-tested and it’s sounding pretty cool.

No details have been released as yet but those 4 joysticks would suggest it’s a vector synthesizer where waveforms are placed in the corners of a vector plain and you use the joystick to morph between them. Although I’d guess at it being a 2 oscillator synth and so maybe 2 joysticks for the waveforms and the other 2 for modulation. It appears to be monophonic and has an arpeggiator at the very least. The keyboard looks like it comes from their 512 Touch Keyboard controller using touch-plate technology for both pitch and pressure information.

I have to say it looks really exciting and is sounding nice and versatile. Apparently, it has a hybrid architecture with everything up to the filter being digital and then it’s all analogue after that. Production should start in February 2022.
