Eowave Persephone ex-Coil
Eowave Persephone Mk1 Ribbon Controlled Synthesiser.
From Eowave's manual -
The Persephone allies sensors technology and digital controls to a pure analogue generation of sound. Its analogue oscillator can generate notes with a range of 10 octaves, which goes from a deep and resonant cello tone to a nearly human voice. And on the highest pitches, it can reach very high frequencies. The oscillator waveform can be set between triangle and saw tooth for a more or less brilliant sound. Its ribbon sensor technology allows all kind of glissando a Theremin or Les Ondes Martenot would allow, though the sensor ribbon is much more precise than the tube full of graphite used as a variable resistance in the Trautonium.
The way the Persephone is played creates the instrument personality. The Persephone follows the traditional play of the first non-keyboard electronic instruments with the right hand controlling the pitch and the left hand controlling the velocity. Control gesture is very intuitive, expressive and accurate enough for playing scores – not only sci-fi effects.
It has midi in and out, CVs out for pitch and amplitude (on 1/4' TRS), pedal input and audio out.
This used to belong to Peter Christopherson of Coil/Throbbing Gristle and comes with a certificate of provenance.
