Phenol is a new type of electronic instrument from Kilpatrick Audio. Inspired by modular synthesizers, Phenol offers the creative potential, sound and hands-on experience of a modular synth, in a sleek, compact and affordable package. And best of all, Phenol is 100% compatible with modular systems because it uses the same voltages and banana connectors as the Kilpatrick Format and similar modular synthesizers.

Shown above is the first prototype of Phenol. This is the first time Kilpatrick Audio has shown a prototype or announced a product prior to availability. But Phenol is not just another module. It's an entirely new instrument with expensive development challenges.

Whether you already love modular synthesizers and want a smaller instrument for portability, or whether you've heard about modular synths and want to get your feet wet, Phenol offers an amazing instrument at a great price.

Super synthé modulaire en un système intégré Review by maxime
Toutes les caractéristiques techniques ainsi que le manuel sont sur le site Kilpatrick Audio, mais en gros: 2 VCO, 2 VCF (High pass et Low pass), 2 VCA, 2 env/lfo (avec nombreuses fonctions), 1 LFO simple, 1 midi to CV avec mini sequencer, 1 divider, 1 adder, 1 mixeur 2 voies avec pan pour la sortie stéréo, un mini delay lo-fi. Ensemble entièrement modulaire, pas de pré-câblage des modules entre eux par défaut; si on veut sortir un son il faut patcher de la banane !
Excellent rapport qualité prix, mais j'ai participé au kickstarter, payé en décembre, et reçu le synthé début juillet. C'est plus cher maintenant.

Bonne construction.Son exceptionnel. Delay LoFi qui fait du bruit mais c'est normal d'après Andrew Kilpatrick, et c'est cool de l'avoir.Système intégré mais compatible avec eurorack, brutes et compagnie.. (1v/oct). Système de patch banane qui rend les modules très simples et intuitifs à utiliser; nombreuses fonctions d'enveloppe super utiles et fun, utiles aussi le divider et le adder.
