The world first All Tube Polyphonic Synthesizer with a MIDI connection, created by movax, JackPearse, Romeo Knight, spotter, h7 & Tomasz. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRd4x_kOIfU
Yeah, 'All Tube' but with ICs and other semiconductor parts. If you trow out that MIDI part then there will nothing special about it, because this is not the first tube synthesizer ever built at all.

Is fooling unaware people gives you pleasure or something? I just don't understand what is the point of such bold claims on the internet, where people can easily spot your bullshit.

And if people want to see real ALL TUBE polyphonic synthesizer (minus MIDI module made of modern ICs), then they should check Hammond's Novachord.

Thank you very much for your comment. You are actually right. We were a bit sloppy in our description. We played the instrument Polyphon. But in reality, it is 6 times multi-timbral, we forgot to mention that. We would like to thank you for the hint.
As Romeo Knight also says in the video, Trasidio SID Radio is an audio expander: The multi-timbral equipment is supposed to honor the SID chip, and since it is a demoscene instrument, it should of course be digitally controllable.
But this underlines the statement, that the audio generation is fully analog.

For example, if you have a modular synthesizer at home, you can also buy a MIDI to CV Converter, to convert the analog Modular Synth via MIDI. But the add-on module doesn't change anything about your Modular Synth. Surely, we could connect an analog keyboard. But hardly any Scener will have an analog keyboard from Moog or Novachord at home.
Trasidio was built in a way, that in principle every scene musician can easily connect his tool-chain to the Trasidio, to make a complete track, including the beat.

We also took a look at your Pouet profile. Although we are grateful for your contribution, we think it would be nice, if you also made positive contributions to or about the demoscene.
Mmhhh... I like TRSI very much... And I like this hardware stuff... To be honest, I do not understand the technics behind this... But... It's just cool, and: IT WORKS, BITCHES :D :D :D... TRSI rulez!!!! TRSI rulez!!!! TRSI rulez!!!! TRSI rulez!!!! TRSI rulez!!!! TRSI rulez!!!! TRSI rulez!!!! etc.

Some scener might still have Knifonium at home!

A very nice build. Hoping for more in-depth tech descriptions/schematics :D

Sure, anything anybody wants to know! We just finished the release very shortly prior to the deadline at the Party and thus could not comment on all the suspenseful details in advance. Please feel free to contact us about the tech and specs and all that Jazz.
wild as fuck :D awesome synth!

as a demonstration of a synth and it's capabilities, this video didn't deliver.

Sounds like a 1bit buzzer to me.

Neat idea, but the result doesn't deliver, and the build up and presentation are tedious (please match the audio levels in your interview clips next time).

I love that there's a huge buildup and then the actual machine sounds worse than an Atari 2600.

maybe it just needs to be passed to ilmarque?

Honestly, this presentation did pretty much everything wrong. For how huge of an engineering undertaking this is, it's almost mind-boggling how you've failed to sell it to the audience. Having to suffer through 5.5 minutes of boring, monotone, poorly scripted, shoddily-edited, single-take introduction for less than two minutes of the actual sound of the synthesizer—and even then it wasn't any sort of a complete composition, but rather an incoherent sequence of bleeps and bloops that made me question why you even bothered. Impressive, but not in a good way. Makes the final product looks worse than it deserves. :\

The synth itself seems like a pretty cool silly hardware hacking project, but the video definitely didn't do a good work presenting it.

A SID and an old radio

looks like a ton of work. it somehow left a big ? over my head. but it worked, bitches!

I'm a sucker for such hardware projects and it seems that a lot of work was invested, but the result doesn't seem to match the effort .. have no idea about the technical stuff, but I was disappointed when the video finished ..

It's quite a common situation:
A coder/engineer builds something which can make sound but it's completely unusable from a musician's perspective.
The sound is really terrible but respect to Romeo Knight for trying.

fantastic.. seeing that these guys are always taking it to the next step .. TRSI all the way

I enjoyed the 1919 clip, the otherworldly bleeps and the tension (ah!) built from the feeling of impending implosion.

tbh I thought the sound was some weird Monty Pythonesque joke due to the video's hype buildup. :D

Hardware and tubes are awesome, so the project itself is really cool regardless of the sound output. The video presentation was far from great however. Audio levels sucked, faces seemed a bit more like name dropping instead of creating sensible content for the actual entry. I would've cut half of the talking away.

The actual project combined with the video results in a weak piggie.

Since I got really a 'behind the scenes' technical introduction of this device, I must say: IMPRESSIVE!

For the ones, that say, that actually looks cool, but sound not that much great: listen again to the interviews. In the current state, the device is able to deliver about 60 seconds of stable sound (including composing times, makes this a labour of short timeframes). But what I heard so far, they already work on this issue. It's a true analog condition instrument / expander.
