Artisan Electronics Iliad Synthesizer Sneak Preview At Knobcon 2022


At Knobcon 2022, Artisan Electronics was previewing Iliad – a new polyphonic synthesizer, based on their Nucleus monophonic synthesizer voice.

Iliad is a boutique polysynth design that builds on Artisan Electronic’s Nucleus voice card. Iliad is designed to be built-to-order, and can be customized to have from four to 16 voices.

The Nucleus voice is a hybrid analog + digital design, featuring two analog oscillators and a digital one, to allow for a wide range of sonic options. Wavefolding and a sub-oscillator offer additional sonic flexibility. An 8-pole multimode filter, 4 LFOs and 4 envelope generators – along with extensive modulation options – make the Nucleus synth voice very powerful.

These are packaged together into a knobtacular 49-note keyboard, making the Iliad immediate and easy to program. The Iliad also offers a digital effects section with reverb, delay and more.
