Synth Design Podcast is back! Special edition with This is Not Rocket Science in Amsterdam. I actually went to visit them and see where the Fenix IV was designed and manufactured. It's by far, one of the most insightful episode I've released to date! We cover the design process, engineering, manufacturing and custom toolchain that had to be built for the Fenix. In the video we show the workshop, so if you can, it's worth your time to watch. Available on YouTube as well.
The Fenix IV is the fourth edition in the Fenix family of synthesizers. Unlike other synthesizers, the Fenix does not conform to the usual divide of tonal versus experimental or additive versus subtractive synthesis. Instead, it offers a wide range of options for the user to create their unique sound.
One of the key features of the Fenix IV is its multiple types of oscillators, filters, LFOs, envelopes, and effects to use in patching. This allows for a great deal of flexibility in sound design.
Another unique aspect of the Fenix IV is that it bridges the analog versus digital divide. There is no longer a need to choose between the two, as the Fenix IV offers the best of both worlds. This "yes, and" mentality allows for even more creative possibilities and sonic exploration.
Overall, the Fenix IV is a powerful and versatile synthesizer that offers a unique approach to sound design. With its multitude of options and features, the Fenix IV is a must-have for any musician or sound designer looking to push the boundaries of their creativity.
