If only small form factor synths make you happy and you're not a fan of sliders, then turn away now!! ;-) Ken MacBeth has revealed a new prototype of a synth he's working on and it looks cool!

Ken MacBeth is working on a a new concept synth, M7-D. As SonicState point out "it seems to be based on the large format M5/M5N" which basically mean it'll be a big boy! Here's some more reasons why we should all share in his excitement:

“Here's the upper section of what I'm working on- I call it M7-D. Infact- try to imagine 4 rows of slider parameters and you are getting there!.....more to follow!........this is at a very experimental stage, but it's up, running!- this by the way- a card fronted prototype.....let's me visualise things !”

Ken explains that he is “hoping to make something very flat- four rows of sliders deep- more functionality than M5N features wise- a different machine now that time has moved on!”

Additionally, the oscialltors will be "root and 7 suboctaves. Expect that to be part of the new machine. Suboctaves make for very interesting, sequence like generations."

Regarding the filter, Ken says, he's put the Trans Diode Filter into the M7-D. "I've done the ladder filter and I've done the SV filter- but no filter I've done, apart from the Elements one sounds like this thing!"
