The Brunswick synthesizer from Future Sound Systems was originally commissioned by BEEF in 2018 as a workshop kit synth. Whilst designed as an affordable, bare-bones synth voice, the Brunswick presents a single VCO, two-pole multi-mode VCF, dirty VCA and basic LFO and envelope sections. A 24-point patchbay allows for external voltage control over VCO pitch and envelope gate, as well as a slew of other inputs and outputs from 3.5mm mono jacks.

FSS is pleased to announce a wider release of the Brunswick kit through Thonk, where kits will be available at the price of £99 from 19th October 2018 onwards. Very limited stock of pre-built units can be ordered below, shipping direct from FSS HQ (batteries not included).

A panel layout, designed using Schaeffer's Front Panel Designer package, is available here.
