Mandala V3 is close

Synesthesia Corporation has released details of an upcoming update to its multi-zone Mandala drum trigger.

Production of the Mandala V3 will start soon with pricing under $499 and shipping expected in the second half of 2022.

According to a company statement, the new model features an upgraded playing surface “to increase an already best-in-class dynamic range”.

Synesthesia claims it has applied space program ingenuity to the hardware frame for stability, durability and mounting.

Mandala V3 is a multi-trigger standard USB MIDI controller, but the new model gets a new five-pin MIDI output. It now includes presets optimised for popular audio software and a browser-based utility program for advanced output configuration.

The V3 product was first flagged on Indiegogo in 2016, but failed to meet funding requirements.

The original Mandala Drum dates back more than a decade and rose to prominence when it was championed by Danny Carey.
