We first saw UniSyn in prototype form back in 2019 at Winter NAMM, but it wasn't near any kind of commercial product at that point. Today, UniSyn also includes a +24v phantom power option, automatic gain control to eliminate the trouble of tuning the input preamp gain, optional 3:1 compression in the front end, a sustain pedal input, and firmware upgrade capability via SD card.

On top of all that, the unit can also generate a dedicated sine wave as well as filtered square or sawtooth waves. These can then be optionally pitch-shifted over a +/-2 octave range with semitone resolution.

You can pre-order UniSyn from the Second Sound website for $419 and shipping is expected by the end of December 2020.
