Synth Design Podcast face to face with This is Not Rocket Science in Amsterdam! This is a super special edition, after a long break (and lots of learnings on my end!). We go through sound design, instrument design, and how the Fenix synthesizer came to be.
The Fenix IV is the fourth edition in the Fenix family of synthesizers. Unlike other synthesizers, the Fenix does not conform to the usual divide of tonal versus experimental or additive versus subtractive synthesis. Instead, it offers a wide range of options for the user to create their unique sound.
One of the key features of the Fenix IV is its multiple types of oscillators, filters, LFOs, envelopes, and effects to use in patching. This allows for a great deal of flexibility in sound design.
Another unique aspect of the Fenix IV is that it bridges the analog versus digital divide. There is no longer a need to choose between the two, as the Fenix IV offers the best of both worlds. This "yes, and" mentality allows for even more creative possibilities and sonic exploration.
Overall, the Fenix IV is a powerful and versatile synthesizer that offers a unique approach to sound design. With its multitude of options and features, the Fenix IV is a must-have for any musician or sound designer looking to push the boundaries of their creativity.
