PWM Malevolent analog monophonic semi-modular synthesizer



    Malevolent is our modular. Truly analogue synth... co-habiting the modular and synthesizer world. It boasts multiple connectivity options for endless patching capabilities.

    Multiple Connectivity Options including:

    • midi i/o
    • clock i/o
    • phones
    • line out
    • usb c

    Analogue Design courtesy of Bristol-based future sound systems with exhaustive control development by Ex Roli / Focusrite genius Ben Supper [Supperware]

    A fully featured Arpeggiator with independent control and signal capabilities allowing ARP Midi control alongside patchable signal manipulation.

    Second-To-None USB MIDI CONTROL: completely separate to the analogue signal patch, working as a totally independent USB to 1 volt per octave USB midi interface.

    We've always been passionate about the musicality of technology. Anything that makes noise is a very

    special thing indeed, but we as a company come from a musical background. We like making stuff we can play, have fun with and get inspired by. Otherwise, for us, there really is no point. Having worked in the music manufacturing sector for most of our lives, we know how to make products well and we can't wait to show you what is round the corner in the PWM timeline. Paul Whittington set the company up and hasn't looked back. The team is expanding and we are tantalisingly close to presenting our product portfolio.

    Paul Whittington has a healthy knowledge of the music manufacturing process. With past lives in Evolution Electronics, M-Audio, Avid, Focusrite and Novation, he has been directly involved in countless products that have famously been featured in studio and live industries. Aside from his Product Management experience, he is a passionate synthesis designer and professional keys player, with appearances on radio and television. With so much knowledge and expertise in the music industry, Paul has finally launched PWM, by hand picking the best industry specialists to develop the innovative and exciting products soon to reach the public. A doting husband and proud father of two, Paul, when not doing the family thing is mainly found in his man cave – fiddling, plotting and scheming.
