The Valkyrie Synthesizer is finally complete and will be launched at MusikMesse, Europe’s biggest Music Show, in April 2018 in Frankfurt. Come and see Valkyrie for yourself on stand F46 in Hall 4.1. Valkyrie is a mainstream synth and will launch at a mainstream price.
Valkyrie has two groups of five 32x oversampled oscillators per voice (a total of 1280 actual oscillators) with hard sync, ring mod and FM, dual PCM wavetables with 4,096 (!) waves available, dual analog ladder modelling filters with 12 and 24dB/octave options, an advanced modulation matrix, a killer stereo hypersaw, an arpeggiator, 3 EGs and 3 stereo LFOs with 64 shapes and MIDI sync. It is 8 part multitimbral with a dedicated nine module FX unit per part including shelving EQ with sweepable mid and formant filter, dual (pre- and post-FX) tube response limiters, 5 algorithm distortion unit, chorus/flanger, DDL, a truly wonderful 6-stage phaser plus reverb. All of these run in stereo at 96kHz floating point. With the exception of dual filters/dual voice mode which uses two voices per note, Valkyrie ALWAYS delivers 128 notes of polyphony regardless of settings or effects. There are no compromises.
Valkyrie implements full keyboard MIDI tuning for alternative tunings such as Hermode.
Valkyrie is a hardware synth. There’s no DSP chips here, that’s obsolete technology from the 90s. All sound generation and filtering is 100% custom build hardware that was designed from the ground up for interactive creativity. We even designed our own multicore operating system designed specifically for audio. Valkyrie uses less than 10W of power and starts up in less than 4 seconds. Keyboard and 19’ rack models are in development.
Valkyrie has 4 balanced stereo 32bit 96kHz analog outputs using audiophile-grade components including an Asahi Kasei DAC and Nichicon Fine Gold capacitors, 8 stereo 48kHz/96kHz parts over USB 2.0 (Audio Class 2.0 profile, Windows 7+ and OSX) with ASIO, ultra low latency MIDI (via physical MIDI and USB) and a beautiful high resolution OLED display. Valkyrie comes complete with a comprehensive Editor/Librarian application for Windows and Mac users. Valkyrie stores over 3,300 Patches all of which can be instantly recalled on the front panel or via MIDI.
We’re interested in engaging a number of people/companies for the launch of Valkyrie. If you match these requirements please contact us or book a face to face meeting at MusikMesse:
Professional Patch Programmers and demo composers to build out Valkyrie’s Factory Presets. Get the inside track on your competition by getting early access to Valkyrie hardware to have your commercial Patch Banks ready for Valkyrie’s Day Zero. Cross-promotion deals can be discussed.
Instrument Test Engineer: To do the final reliability tests for Valkyrie. Technical knowledge of MIDI protocol analysis, synthesizer operation and architecture required.
C++ Developer with ROLI JUCE Framework - to maintain and extend the Librarian/Editor application on Windows and MacOSX.
