We were blown away by sound of the Plankton Electronics ANTS! 4-oscillator semi-modular analog desktop synthesizer when it launched on Kickstarter back in December 2016. It was obviously oozing character. And not surprisingly, easily surpassed its Kickstarter goal!
Today, the maker of ANTS!, Alex Ballester, has told us ANTS! is now available to pre-order. Anyone who didn't have the opportunity to back this wonderful-sounding synth on Kickstarter can get a unit now!
ANTS! will begin shipping in 2 weeks. The manual will be ready within a week and you can expect more videos coming soon. And what about the price? €490 EUR excluding tax.
AND... Skye Klein has created a web browser-based online patching tool where you can save, browse and recall Ants patches called Meta Patch // Ants. You can check out the BETA version here: http://ants.constructingtowers.com/#/patch
Skye has previously created an online patching librarian system for the Korg MS-20, you can find it here.
Ants is Eurorack friendly, features MIDI to CV, has more than 50 patch points, 19 knobs, thousands of combinations and infinite possibilities of modulation. And did we mention that it sounds excellent, especially for the price.
Price: €490 EUR / £415 GBP (aprox) / $535 USD (aprox)
