Meet Paradigm

Paradigm is the product of five years of research and development resulting in the first commercially available synthesizer based on dynamically programmable analog signal processing technology.

Unlike conventional analog synthesizers, Paradigm is uniquely capable of dynamically restructuring its own circuitry in real-time, thereby enabling a degree of flexibility and control that has not been previously possible in the analog domain.

This is made possible by an array of four “Apex” programmable analog chips, the third generation of such devices developed by Anadigm Corporation.

What is Paradigm?

Paradigm is the first commercially available synthesizer based on dynamically programmable and reconfigurable analog signal processing technology, opening up entirely new possibilities for synthesis and sound manipulation in the analog domain.

For more information on the Paradigm synthesizer you can view our teaser post here.

We look forward to seeing you!!
