Noise Engineering introduces Sinc Pravus and Xer Dualis, Two new modules, at Synthplex 2022


At Synthplex 2022, Noise Engineering introduced two new modules:


  • Xer Dualis is a 6hp stereo mixer; and
  • Sinc Pravus is a 4hp configurable offset.


Xer Dualis is a compact four-channel stereo mixer.


You can use the individual left and right inputs for your stereo signals, or just the left input for a mono signal: it normals to the right one. Each channel has a mute and an individual level control so you can fine-tune your mix to your taste.

Xer Dualis’s stereo output pair features a simple meter and a clip indicator to help keep your mix clean.


Key Features:


  • 6 HP
  • Stereo mixer
  • Switch mutes
  • Clip indicator
  • Great size for any system


Noise Engineering says that Xer Dualis is a great choice whether you need a submixer for a large system or an easy way to mix all the elements of a portable case together.

Preorders are open now. In stock in black and silver. Shipping from Noise Engineering and retailers starting November 3, 2022. MSRP $170

Noise Engineering describes the Sinc Pravus as “a workhorse of a quad offset in 4hp”.


Sometimes you have the perfect CV signal, but it’s just not in the right range. Enter Sinc Pravus. Each of Sinc Pravus’s four channels are controlled by a dedicated potentiometer with an LED for monitoring signal outputs. The input Jacks are normaled from top to bottom, so it can offset the same signal by different amounts or simply act as a mult.

You can use the back-panel switch to configure Sinc Pravus’s offset range to either ±5 or ±10 volts. With nothing patched to the inputs, the channels can be used as DC-voltage generators, especially useful for controlling multiple CV destinations with a single parameter.

Key Features:

  • 4HP
  • Configurable range for either ±5 or ±10 volts of offsetting
  • Use normaled inputs to mult signals or offset one signal by different amounts

Preorders are open now. In stock in black and silver. Shipping from Noise Engineering and retailers starting November 3, 2022; MSRP $140


Synclavier launches Regen Synth at Synthplex 2022



Synclavier has introduced a new hardware synthesizer, the Regen, at Synthplex 2022 – being held from October 27-30 in Burbank, CA.

Synclavier Regen- desktop synthesizer, offers the power of the Synclavier II DSP engine, enhanced and optimized. The Regen features a color screen, ‘liquid-like’ touch controls, high fidelity audio output, paired with a powerful synth engine.

Regen supports additive synthesis for full control of 24 harmonics. But they’ve also added subtractive synthesis features to the Synclavier synthesis engine. And you can use samples for your carrier waveform. And these different waveform generators can be mixed. You have up to 12 partials to use in your sound design creation, with crossfades assignable to inputs such as velocity, pressure, mod wheel, and of course, keyboard.

In addition, Regen is loaded with content to get you inspired fast. There are over 250 timbre presets including 6 newly-commissioned artist timbre libraries. On top of that, there are 2 exclusive sample libraries with over 300 new samples and one mega library with over 700 original samples from the NED era.

Beyond the presets, the Synclavier Regen offers deep sound design possibilities. You can layer up to 12 partials with different sound generators (additive, subtractive, samples) then apply dynamic effects per partial. Polyphonic aftertouch and MPE is fully-supported and there’s a sophisticated modulators section where you can apply responsive curves to properties driven by pressure, velocity, mod wheel position, and so on.


  • 255 Regen timbre presets
  • 700+ samples of royalty-free factory content
  • Additive waveforms, subtractive waveform generator and multi-sample patchlists
  • 12 partials to build your sounds.
  • 12 tracks for multi-timbral playback or stacking (layering) of sounds.
  • 4 USB ports for keyboards and other peripherals plus one USB port for connection to DAW. And 5-pin MIDI standard (TRS).
  • 2 full-colour high resolution screens
  • Sensitive liquid-like touch swiper and 12 selector pads.
  • Multiple effects per track, including chorus, reverb, vibrato, tremolo, arpeggiator, bit crush, and multi-mode filter.
  • High fidelity DC-coupled audio out (stereo XLR or TS) with 130dB of dynamic range.

CEntrance Bouncer Mini Mixer/Recorder for DAW

CEntrance Bouncer is a compact 10-channel mini mixer/recorder for DAW-free jamming with your synths and drum machines

The ability to jam and record without a DAW is one that a lot of music technologists crave, particularly if they have got a collection of compact synths and drum machines that they like to sync together.

And so, we have products like CEntrance’s Bouncer, a compact new 10-channel line mixer (the 10 channels are spread across five stereo mini-jack inputs) that comes with an integrated digital recorder.

Offering tactile analogue controls, Bouncer offers a one-touch recording feature that enables you to capture a stereo mix on an SD card. It is made of “tough yet lightweight aluminium,” and eschews a display and menus in favour of a more ‘hands-on’ approach.

Recording is fixed at 24-bit/48kHz, and you can use SD cards of up to 256GB capacity. There’s an ‘audiophile-grade’ headphone amp and a line-level output for monitoring purposes, while a camera-style mount means that you can attach Bouncer to a desk, music/keyboard stand or drum hardware.

Power is drawn via USB-C, so you can use a power bank if you are out in the field, and a thru jack enables you to pass power to other devices, as well.


“Bouncer is great for jamming in small spaces,” says Michael Goodman, CEntrance Founder. “As a live headphone mixer, it helps you dial in your perfect sound. As a portable recorder, it lets you quickly save the stereo mix of your performance to an SD card.

“We designed Bouncer to be easy to use. Now you can remove the computer from your setup, simplifying your rig and letting you choose music over menus.”


Bouncer will be released in December priced at $600. Find out more on the CEntrance website.
