While Synton was designing and building custom mixing consoles, effects gear, vocoders, modular synths destined to be chained to keyboards as sensitive as on/off switches, the idea of making a keyboard with whites and blacks that would respond to more than just hammering them down, started to perk up. Reality is cruel, so plans had to be put on the back-burner, simmering until almost done.

Finally the moment was there to take the lid of the pan (pun not intended) and let out a sniff of the dish.

The Proof of the Pudding (PoP) was in eating it…

At the Berlin SuperBooth2017, SyntoNovo showed its PoPAnalog development system, equipped with an XYZPression™ keyboard with 3D sensitivity.

Together with our friends now, at This Is Not Rocket Science  – original synth modules three times over –  we’re dreaming up more adventures, linking the great past to the exciting deep space now, and trying to have a peek at the future.
