HARDWARE SYNTHESIZERS

ORIGIN IS THE MOST POWERFUL SYNTHESIZER ON THE MARKET.

As a matter of fact, it goes beyond the traditional definition of synthesizers. It is a hardware DSP system that houses several synthesizers in one machine. Some of these synths come from the past, such as the Mini, and some are totally new and innovative.

 

Loaded with modules extracted from the best synthesizers of all time, Origin lets you combine these modules and take advantage of combinations that have never been possible before. The result: a new type of sound accessible through an extremely intuitive interface.

 

 
 

You can process any external sound through its audio input, making this a powerhouse for adding warmth, grit and filter effects to drums, guitars, and more.

ORIGIN SOUNDS LIKE NOTHING ELSE ON THE PLANET

SOUND WITH AN ATTITUDE

 

The Multi mode lets you play up to 4 synthesizers at the same time. You can layer them to create amazing sounds, split a keyboard or use Origin as a source for 4 different tracks in your sequencer. In addition, the Macro mode allows you to control the 4 synths at the same time, making Origin one single instrument. When you know that each of these synths can be as big as our modular V, you get a glimpse of the power beneath this beast.

PERFORM IN STYLE

Besides that, Origin is not a simple hardware synthesizer; it’s an integrated system offering the best of the hardware and software worlds. With several knobs and buttons, a large color display, joystick, direct access to such fine synthesizer templates as the Mini or the Jupiter-8, Origin arguably is a breakthrough in the world of digital instruments.

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

Analog Devices TigerSHARC® processors provide the highest performance density for multiprocessing applications, with peak performance well above a billion floating-point operations per second. In everyday language, that means Origin has the ability to provide an incredibly warm and fat sound while also offering high polyphony. It is the most powerful synth on the market.
