Superbooth 2018: Black Corporation announces the Kijimi 8-voice polysynth

Superbooth 2018: It’s time to start getting excited about this year’s Berlin-based geek-fest and what better place to start than with an exciting announcement from the makers of the Deckard’s Dream.

This time round, Japanese-based Black Corporation has turned its attentions to the re-creation of the rather rare RSF Polykobol synth.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen the classic 8-voice polysynth re-created, with the likes of XILS-lab already on the case. However, the Kijimi is not just your average clone, but a complete re-imagining of the late ‘70s instrument. 

As the second Instagram post suggests, we will be seeing a prebuilt version as well as a DIY kit. There are no prices as yet, but we’ll be sure to get all the info from the show, so don’t miss it.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
