Kodamo Mask 1 Polyphonic Digital Synthesizer (Sneak Preview)


Previously known for its EssenceFM  synth, Kodamo has now taken the wraps off the Mask 1, a new polysynth that uses the company’s ‘bitmask’ synthesis technique.

The instrument made its debut at SoundMIT 22, which took place last weekend. Mask 1 is a 10-voice polyphonic synth that’s powered by two oscillators (each with 200 built-in waveforms), a noise generator and a 12-state variable filter.

The bitmasking technique works by splitting a sine wave into multiple parts which are then rearranged in different ways, the theory being that this will enable you to create both classic and entirely new sounds.

Mask 1 other features include seven envelopes per voice, two LFOs and 15 modulation destinations. Control comes via a 61-note Fatar keyboard that responds to velocity and aftertouch but, are subject to change till it is released.

The rest of the interface is cryptic, with lots of mechanical keyboard-style buttons and just a small display.

Kodamo MASK 1 is currently in development and is expected to be available in March 2023
