Desktop Semi-Modular Synth

Malevolent is a semi-modular analogue synthesizer, that boasts 19 x 3.5mm inputs and outputs for deep sound exploration and integration capabilities with other modular systems.

Malevolent is mini-synth that includes a variety of unique & interesting features, such as:

  • Wave-shaping VCO’s, with three switchable / mixable waveforms
  • Multi-mode 2-pole Sallen-Key topology filter with resonance
  • High quality VCA circuit with a superb overdrive
  • Monophonic USB / MIDI to CV Converter
  • 6 mode arpeggiator with hold
  • Magnetically attached + removeable end cheeks
  • Can be powered by USB BUS power
  • Vast expansion possibilities with Eurorack standard 1V/Oct gear
  • Plus much more…!

Malevolent has been designed by Paul Whittington in collaboration with Bristol based synth manufacturer Future Sound Systems who have provided the analogue circuitry, and Ben Supper who developed the control interface:

Paul has a had a long career in developing products for some of the biggest names in the industry and is now using his expertise to build instruments, bringing in talents from friends he’s made during his tenure in development.

Future Sound Systems are a renowned Bristol based synthesizer manufacturer, who are responsible for some of most forward-thinking designs on the market, they specialize in modular and semi-modular synthesizers & their design prowess is very apparent in Malevolent.

Despite it’s diminutive size, Malevolent sounds big, aggressive and is capable of everything from soaring leads, huge bass sounds, percussive phrases, weird sound FX and more.

It's form factor, user interface and price point make it a great option for those taking their first step in the modular domain, but it's unique sound, extensive modulation capabilities and the options for integrating seamlessly with other synthesizers, makes it a great option an for experienced user who's looking for something a little different.
