THE ENIGMA

Invented in 1928 by Maurice Martenot, the original unreliable tube-based design was refined and later models remained in production until 1988.
The Ondes Martenot was used in many film scores first dating from 1931; Odna by Shostakovich, Lawrence of Arabia (1962), A Passage to India (1984), and recent films such as Amélie (2001) and There Will Be Blood (2007) by Jonny Greenwood.

ONDES: PERFORMANCE

Recreating an authentic Ondes Martenot performance requires real-time control.

With an NKS controller, ROLI Seaboard, Linnstrument, or any MIDI controller; expressive, fluid lines will come to life.

THE LOUDSPEAKERS

A large part of the Ondes' sonic character are the 3 loudspeakers that amplify the instrument. 

D1: A conventional, if slightly lo-fi, speaker cabinet.

D2: A speaker with 3 metal springs inside, which create a spring reverb type effect.

D3: The most exotic of the three; Le Metallique. This is essentially a speaker with a metal cymbal for a cone.

The Soniccouture Ondes instrument features convolution modelling of these cabinets, which can be blended creatively within the instrument.

 

THE POLY ONDES

Included with the Soniccouture Ondes instrument is an additional synth, the Poly-Ondes.

Because after all, isn't it a shame not to be able to play these sounds polyphonically?

Featuring a tweaked feature set, this makes the most of the amazing vintage oscillators, and adds an LFO for extra modulation possibilities.

The result is a hugely versatile and characterful analogue polysynth.
