Vogon Replay Polyphonic Synthesizer With Multi-Mode Arpeggiator

Vongon, a Californian manufacturer best known for making effects pedals like the Polyphrase and Paragraphs, has announced the release of its first synth.

Replay is a six-voice polyphonic analogue synthesizer and a little window into synth heaven.

Lush pads, tiny plinks, snappy arpeggios, warbling melodies, resonant filters with midi connectivity and a sleek web interface!

Replay is said to be inspired by the Roland Juno and Korg Polysix. The most striking feature of this synth is its minimalist design. Bedecked in a beige aluminium housing with an all-beige keyboard.

Replay is equipped with a six-voice virtual analogue sound engine offering four oscillator waveforms and seven LFO waveforms that Vongon says is capable of producing everything from “rich pads and vibrant leads to snappy arpeggios and deep sub-bass tones”. There’s a multi-mode arpeggiator on board.

The instrument’s 2½-octave keyboard uses Cherry MX keys typically found in mechanical computer keyboards. The top panel hosts a set of 22 controls comprised of a number of Rogan knobs, faders and switches; the synth can also be controlled via a web interface where you can manage presets, access deeper parameter levels and update the firmware.

As for connectivity, you’ll find balanced line-level 1/4″ audio ins and outs along with 3.5mm and USB MIDI.
