Oh yes, the award-winning UNO Synth Pro Desktop synthesizer now has a bold new look. For all those people put off by black and white keyboards with red trim.
UNO Synth Pro Desktop Black
A change is as good as a rest, or so they say and IK Multimedia wants to appeal to our darker side with the boldly black version of the UNO Synth Pro Desktop. It has the same stuff inside but just doesn’t look quite as lively.
It has three darkly discrete oscillators with pulse width modulation, hard sync and continuously variable wave shape. Add in a black noise oscillator, some murky FM and a dark Ring Modulator and you’ve got the makings of a half-decent analogue and paraphonic black synthesizer. It has two noir state variable filters with 24 modes in series and parallel configurations to really nail the exact darkness level of tonal sculpting you were after. The front panel 16 slot modulation matrix helps you route things to all the right places.
In terms of excitement, there’s a black buttoned 64-step sequencer, 10-mode arpeggiator and 256 user-editable presets that light up black. If you can find the back of the synth in the dark you’ll discover two lots CV/Gate, MIDI In/Out, and audio input to the filters and balanced stereo and headphone outputs.
If you want to get into the dark details then there’s an all-new black software editor to match.
The UNO Synth Pro Desktop Black is a very capable little machine of synthesis and is available now for €349.99. There’s no mention of whether the full-size UNO Synth Pro will get the same treatment.
IK Multimedia can be found on booth Z350 – bring a torch.
