SOMA Terra Synthesizer In-Depth Review

Host Ziv Eliraz, in his latest loopop video, takes his usual in-depth look at the new SOMA Terra, a unique synthesizer that SOMA describes as “a highly conceptual device”.

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, with smooth and fast transitions between these extremes.

Like other SOMA instruments, the Terra is not designed to compete with other traditional electronic instruments, but to explore new territory. Or, as Eliraz notes, “It’s not the best of a certain regular category, it’s its own category. ”

The Terra is expected to be released some time in 2023, with pricing TBA. Find out details on the SOMA Labs website. Watch the video and share your thoughts on the SOMA Terra in the comments!
