SOMA Labs announce new microtonal synth built into wood

SOMA Labs has revealed its new TERRA microtonal synth that is encased in a single piece of solid wood.

Currently being manufactured, the synth can make a range of digital sounds with 32 algorithms that are designed to be a complete instrument on its own.

The TERRA also has a keyboard with different sensors to allow for timbre control and pitch shifts.

Other features include a motion sensor, an LED sensor and a built-in FX processor.

SOMA Labs say that the concept of the synth is “the unity of nature and technology, and a perfect balance between simplicity and versatility. Behind the extremely simple interface hides a complex polyphonic, microtonal synthesizer with a broad and flexible sound palette that ranges from classical beautiful tones to complex atonal noise, and offers smooth and fast transitions between these extremes.”
