The Rare Waves Grendel RA-9 Grenadier

Switched On is now stocking the Rare Waves Grendel RA-9 Grenadier. The Grenadier is the third incarnation of the Grendel series, starting with the Drone Commander (2 oscillator droney synth design), the formant filter in Eurorack format, and now the RA-9 Grenadier. The Grenadier is by far the most feature rich and unique thus far. The Grenadier is a single oscillator tabletop synthesizer with a triple bandbass filter bank, a built-in sequencer, and lots of connectivity. Like all Rare Waves devices it is made extremely well and has loads of character. Get all of the details and order HERE.

The Rare Waves Grendel Formant Filter is here and it talks.

We just received our order of the new Rare Waves Grendel Formant Filter and it speaks volumes. Sorry, more bad jokes. Essentially it is a set of 4 bandpass filters intended to shape vowel sounds. Therefore it is a component of analog speech synthesis! Any audio can be fed through the Grendel and you can begin shaping the harmonic content into different ahhhh, eeeeee, ooooo, aiiiiiiiiii, yewwwww, whyyyyy sounds.  Bring CV control into the mix and you are set for some truly unique sounds. We are very happy to be carrying this unique filter! Currently we are jamming a Bassbot TT-303 through it and its making that squelchy acid bassline sound talk to us.
