SB01 legendary analog soul

While the SB01 is a new form of synthesizer, it may sound familiar to many–our inspiration was one of the sonic engines that laid the foundation of electronic music. We worked with Open Music Labs to create and carefully hone a 1:1 version of the signature circuits that bring it to life.

A 3340 voltage-controlled oscillator feeds into a 4-pole OTA filter that makes for an iconic and unmistakable sound. Make it snap and sing with responsive analog envelopes, modulation, and portamento, or bring in external CV for deeper VCO and VCF control.

SB01 Blown up

Could we take the sound of an analog legend and reimagine it for the future? The answer–after years of development–was the creation of the SB01 analog synthesizer. An instrument that puts classic sound in a modern package and adds a number of essential upgrades.
