Blind Monk Instruments has released the Navigator, a minimalistic four-voice analogue synth.

The Navigator features a simple front panel with a user-friendly layout. There is a dedicated knob for each voice, along with individual controls for volume, menu selection and function. Blind Monk Instrument’s newest synth utilises a unique architecture, in that each voice has an independent frequency as opposed to being locked to the same master frequency. Aside from providing stability, this feature also creates a more natural analogue sound and phasing between oscillations.

Feature-wise, each voice of the Navigator comes with two oscillators, a sub-oscillator, a ring modulator, three LFOs, two ADSR envelopes and a two-pole fully resonant low-pass filter. Users can access the Navigator’s multiple modulation capabilities through the use of its 64-step sequencer, chord memory code and AI sequence generator with automation control. 

The Navigator can also operate in Polyphonic, Duophonic, Unison and Mono modes, and store up to 150 patches, along with 10 sequencer/chord memory storage locations and 10 different sequence generator algorithms.
