Future Retro Vectra Synthesizer is back in Production, Shipping in Late 2023

The Future Retro founder, Jered Flickinger, announced in 2022 that it was closing its doors after 25 years. Later in the year, though, the company announced that it was coming back, with new management and plans to reissue Flickinger’s designs.

The revivified Future Retro has announced that its Vectra synthesizer is back in production and will be shipping later this year.

The Vectra is a unique digital-analog hybrid synthesizer that features four oscillators, white and pink noise sources, four ring modulators, a four-channel mixer, five LFO’s, six morphing envelopes, six primary multimode analog filter types, a main analog VCA, and numerous internal modulation routings and VCA’s controlling modulation amounts.

The Vectra’s synthesis architecture is designed to allow the greatest flexibility in recreating multiple synthesis techniques of the past, while introducing several new innovations and methods. According to the company, it’s like having a powerful self-contained semi-modular synthesizer, with approximately 500 internal signal routings and around 256 storable sound parameters.
