The SynQuaNon name is a combination of synth and sine qua non, a Latin expression meaning "without which there is nothing".

The current focus of SynQuaNon products is on guitar (or bass) single-string (hexaphonic) processing.  While not excluding guitar synth (pitch detection) techniques, the emphasis is on using the guitar string as the oscillator and applying subtractive or additive synthesis.  Coupled with vector-based amplitude panning across quad or hex outputs for psycho-acoustic effects, this new approach offers a whole new world for guitarists/bassists to explore. SynQuaNon's modules are also well suited for the modular synth enthusiast who would like to explore polyphony!

The vision for SynQuaNon is to harness total freedom of tones, frequencies and all manners of combinations to create never before heard, played and subsequently unique melodies of sound.  With infinite sounds to play with, users can truly explore the depths of their creativity with our products.

Hex VU Meter, 13-Pin Input Breakout, Hex VCF, Hex Fuzz Amplifier and Hex EF-Gate-Trigger are among SynQuaNons most popular products.
