I always thought analog synthesizers were inherently retro. Just not quite this retro.

This unbelievable steampunk modular synthesizer features tons of dials and intricate brass etching throughout. All of the buttons and knobs were hand lathed, and the synth includes a number of antique parts as well.

With all those wires, buttons and knobs, the whole thing reminds me of some sort of antique phone switchboard or an elevator control unit.

Created by Berlin artist/musician Moritz Wolpert, this incredible bit of machinery cranks out smooth analog sounds by interconnecting wires, and adjusting the synthesizer’s myriad knobs and buttons.
