Eowave Magma

When a synth manufacturer uses Nitzer Ebb, Vince Clark and 80s in their description obviously I’m going to take a close look. After hearing some of the new Eowave Magma and reading about it’s sequencer I may have burned a 535 Euro hole in my pocket. It’s a true analog synth with a somewhat 303ish sequencer in that you can have swing and shuffle per note. You can transpose the sequenced line via MIDI. Besides pitch the sequencer allows for 3 other “rows” of parameters to be changing. There’s glide, noise, 2 envelopes, super fast attack times, 2 interesting LFOs with 8 waveforms that can modulate the VCF or VCO, tap tempo, external in, and 250 preset locations for the sequencer and synth storable via USB on a computer. Yeah I want this.

“The MAGMA is an analogue bassline synthesizer inspired by classical synths from the 1980s. It offers the possibility to mix 4 different waveforms (saw, square, sub, noise). The 24 dB low-pass filter is also inspired from classical filters from the 80s. To this particular sound of the 80s, we added a touch of modernity with modern controls and parameters saving features. The 16 steps sequencer has 4 rows: 1 for the notes and 3 freely assignable to a parameter of your choice that enables to create living sequences with sonorities like Vince Clark or Yann Hammer.” – eowave.com
