Richard from Pittsburgh Modular shows us some of the sounds you can create with their brand new System 10 semi-modular synthesizer. In case you came here and never saw our overview of the System 10, be sure to visit our blog post of the System 10 from NAMM 2014. While we weren’t able to get a direct line from the System 10 for the most pristine audio fidelity, this demonstration should give you an idea of some of the sounds you can create and manipulate with this compact and affordable semi-modular synthesizer.
Feel free to give us your thoughts on the System 10 in the comments section below and keep looking out for more videos from the show floor at the Winter NAMM show 2014.

Pittsburgh Modular says that the System 10 is a very modern and aggressive sounding synthesizer which is exactly what it delivers. But the real standout feature is its unbelievably low price for what you are getting. It is fully patchable, has a complex waveforms oscillator, and a high quality, linear response, voltage controlled amplifier transcript. This is a very practical and fun device for the synthesizer enthusiast…
