Top 5 Synthesizers of 2019

Evidently, 2019 was a mind-blowing year for synthesizers. Clones of vintage synths, as well as brand new innovation, have never been so attainable in history. All of the classic sounds you’ve been craving from the past and all of the potential sounds you’ve been dreaming of creating are now, literally, at your finger tips. Here is our Top 5 selection from 2019…

Arturia MicroFreak

Hey synth freaks! You’re gonna love this MicroFreak (if you haven’t tried it already). It’s got a modern design incorporating a touch keyboard with 25 velocity dynamic keys, with polyphonic aftertouch. A digital oscillator with synthesis methods like Karplus Strong, Harmonic OSC, Superwave and Texturer allow you to make your vision come to fruition…

Make Noise 0-Coast

A monophonic patchable desktop synth which is compatible with Eurorack Modular Synthesizer signals, functional with or without patch cables, controllable via 2-Channels MIDI to CV and MIDI to Gate Converter. Compact, versatile and stylish!

Korg Volca Drum

The volca series just keeps getting bigger and better and its latest addition, the Volca Drum, has character. While other drum machines try to imitate classic ones, the Volca Drum has a genuinely original sound engine that is tweak-able to your liking.


Behringer Odyssey

Take a trip back in time to the ’70s with the Behringer “Odyssey”, an clone of the synth (of the same name) by Arp Instruments, Inc. from the 1970s. Of course it’s at a fraction of the price and has even more (up-to-date) features such as a 32-step sequencer, arpeggiator, USB, MIDI and an effects section powered by Klark Teknik.

Moog Matriarch

This multi-coloured beauty is a 4-Part Paraphonic Semi-Modular Synth with patch options, analog sound generation, a 256 Step-sequencer, arpeggiator, stereo ladder filter, stereo analog delay and much more. Based on the circuits of the Moog-Modular-Synthesizer it offers 4 analog oscillators with selectable waveforms, an integrated mixer with 6 inputs , 2 four-stage ADSR, and 3 bipolar voltage controlled attenuators with ring modulation capabilities. What more could you want?

    Great to see the Odyssey and the Moog make a return. I must try them!

    year hasn’t ended yet…. though I can’t say there was anything good enough to compete with iconic Access Virus or uber-versatile Synthstrom Deluge yet … especially if we look at MPE compatibility department – so absolutely nothing to enjoy so far … If I still need to pick one that would be ASM Hydrasynth – it is definitely the most interesting recent development. Waldorf Kyra? Don’t think… it is rather just another more expensive Virus… so my table is still uncovered ūüėõ
