Dreadbox has revealed the full details of the Nymphes polysynth that it teased last week, confirming that the compact instrument will offer six voices of polyphony, digital reverb and more.

On its product page, the brand explained its goal with Nymphes was to “condense an ambitious idea in a small and compact box”. Dreadbox also dedicated the synth to “all abused and oppressed women” of the world.

The brand wrote: “May our voices unite and bring light, joy and happiness to this world of injustice and inequality.”

Each of the synth’s voices is made up of a VCO with sweepable waveshape, a sub-oscillator and a noise generator, along with two envelopes and an LFO. There are also two filters per voice: a 24dB/octave low-pass resonant filter and a 6dB/octave high-pass filter.

Nymphes features a global LFO, 96 presets – with 49 that are factory set – and seven active chords that users can edit, modulate and store into each preset. Nymphes is powered by USB and has a MIDI port, mono output and headphone output.

The synth wraps those features up in a compact metal enclosure, which looks small enough to fit into a backpack.

The Dreadbox Nymphes will be available in November for €499.
