PWM Malevolent is a truly analog synthesizer cohabiting with both the modular and synthesizer worlds. In addition to an extensive patch panel, it boasts multiple connectivity options including MIDI, class-compliant USB-C and analog clock. The onboard arpeggiator automatically detects and syncs to either analog or USB/MIDI clock signals.

  • Pure analog signal path designed by Future Sound Systems
  • Semi-modular 1/8" patch panel with 19 inputs, 19 outputs and normalized signal path
  • Two voltage-controlled oscillators, each with saw, triangle and pulse outputs
  • Shape control, pulse width modulation and frequency modulation
  • Low-frequency oscillator with triangle and square waves
  • Two ADSR envelopes with individual gate trigger inputs
  • Multi-mode voltage-controlled filter with individual low pass, band pass and high pass inputs
  • Two filter frequency modulation inputs with amount controls
  • Mixer with noise source and external audio input with level controls
  • Voltage-controlled amplifier with overdrive control
  • USB/MIDI-to-1V/octave control voltage and gate conversion
  • Arpeggiator with six modes including up, down, up/down (two types), played and random
  • Auto clock sync to analog clock or USB/MIDI with selectable clock divisions
  • Multi-function joystick control for pitch bend, performable portamento and performable vibrato
  • 32 velocity-sensitive mini keys with pitch, velocity and gate outputs
  • USB bus powered with included power supply
 

Malevolent is everything you want from a true analog design yet will sit happily in your studio with USB-C, MIDI and clock I/O for easy interfacing between digital and analog worlds.

All this is achieved without compromise on the analog side, as Malevolent has two proper VCOs derived from a 4046-based core that will sing and snarl in equal measure.

The opto-FET-controlled two-pole Sallen-Key filter will whistle and burble unlike anything you can get out of a digital model. Indeed, this is the whole point of Malevolent: it lives and breathes.

Malevolent's control joystick has variable-rate vibrato and variable-speed glide as well as pitch bend.

A fully featured arpeggiator with independent control and signal capabilities allows arp MIDI control alongside patchable signal manipulation.

Malevolent has second-to-none USB MIDI control completely separate from the analog signal path, working as a totally independent USB-to-1 volt per octave USB MIDI interface.
