Modular Moon’s Anna “Tulpa Dusha” Martinova introduces us to Gek.kon the latest collaboration with Russian synth makers Sound Objects.
This time it’s digital and capable of a surprising range of tones and weird amounts of coolness. The two independently tunable oscillators have a choice of 4 waveforms which contain a magic ingredient of digital artefacts for a bit of lo-fi crunchiness. These artefacts can be smoothed and sculpted through what appears to be a dual-cutoff analog filter with its own envelope. The Modulator section looks interesting with a switch-based routing matrix to direct it to a range of destinations.
Details are a little bit sketchy at the moment as there’s very little on the website. Anna is currently working on the manuals and tutorial videos but wanted to give us a flavour of what this little box can do. The sounds in the intro video are very intriguing and indicate that you can save and recall presets.
Hopefully, more information will be available soon but it’s another interesting box from Sound Objects and Modular Moon following on from Sound Object #5 that they released back in April.
Gek.kon is available for preorder for €350.
