Physical Synthesis Partners with Electro Distro
Having sold out of its initial production run, startup Physical Synthesis has announced that it is now working with San Clemente, California-based distributor Electro Distro to bring its Cicada to a wider audience ahead of the release of the brand’s Nymph, its upcoming Eurorack module. The Cicada is an “acoustic” synthesizer that transforms electronic signals into physical vibrations that can be fully manipulated before being converted back into a new sound.
“Cicada was the first step in introducing physical synthesis methods to the synth community; it is an award-winning interface that really lets musicians explore microscopic sounds with precise control,” said Spencer Topel, company founder. “Clearly, Cicada made musical waves when winning the Judge’s Special Award at the Guthman Musical Instrument Competition 2022, hosted by Georgia Tech School of Music.”
Physical Synthesis sold out of its initial Cicada production run and has now turned to working with Electro Distro’s growing global network of dealers.
“I want to bring acoustic synthesis to a wider range of musicians,” Topel said. “We are building some really exciting expansions of Cicada to different formats, including a Eurorack module called Nymph, which is coming soon.”
