Metasonix S2000 Vacuum Tube Synthesizer

The Metasonix S-2000 is a revolutionary vacuum tube synthesizer that makes use of three vacuum tubes for a truly unique, and sometimes intensely horrifying, sound. 

The system is remarkably user-friendly: simply connect the power supply, connect the unit to an amplifier, then give the tubes 30 seconds or so to warm up before venturing into the gates of hell. The S-2000’s 400mm ribbon controller is extremely responsive and negates the need for trimpots, MIDI interfaces, or patch cables! As Metasonix boasts: “The misery has been engineered out”—to which this writer would add, so that it can be reoriented inwards! 

S2000 Features

  • Two all-tube oscillator/filter “operators”, with resonance variable from flat response to deep oscillation
  • Waveshape is variable from clean sine wave to a distinctive distorted square/pulse wave
  • Resonate both waveshapes for FM sound effects
  • All-tube VCA
  • Three contour generators, C1-C3
  • C1 attack-release type feeds the VCA
  • C2 attack-decay type feeds the operator-two sweep and optionally the VCA, and may be set to retrigger automatically
  • C3 is the same as C2, but feeds the operator-one CV input
  • Built-in and highly-sensitive ribbon controller
