Modular synthesis is within your grasp.
PHENOL is a new type of electronic instrument from Kilpatrick Audio, and is a perfect arsenal addition for a lot of different kinds of musicians. Analog synthesizers possess no less charm today than they did wehen they first began appearing in amplified music in the 60s and 70s. Among the most massive and thrilling analog synth sounds ever created were those devised on modular synthesizers.
Modular synthesis was the root inspiration for the PHENOL, and a cosdt and sizxe that is a fraction of the original modular systems as well as modular systems that are available today, PHENOL offers the creative potential, sound and hands-on experience of a modular synth in a sleek, compact and affordable package. And if exposure to PHENOL inspires something in you to go head first into modular synths, your initial investment can be incorporated into your more ambitious modular systems. PHENOL is compatible with modular systems because it uses the same voltages and banana connectors as the Kilpatrick Format and similar modular synthesizers.
Whether you already love modular synthesizers and want a smaller instrument for portability, or whether you've heard about modular synths and want to get started, PHENOL offers an amazing instrument at a great price.
