In 1976, Pollard introduced the world's first commercially available drum synthesizer, the Syndrum.  It's a rare and coveted 4-channel analog drum synth with rich analog tone and unique functionality.  Iconic Instruments proudly introduces a meticulously sampled virtual version of the Syndrum with added effects and expanded functionality.

In 1978, Toyo Gakki Corp. produced 'Japan's answer' to the Syndrum with the Ult-Sound DS-4.  The DS-4 is similar to the Syndrum in its 4-channel layout and functionality, but is also soughtafter for its unique sonic footprint.  Iconic Instruments presents the DS-4 on its own or paired with the Syndrum in a discounted package.

Iconic Instruments has spun off 2 unique keyboard instruments based on the samples from the Syndrum and the DS-4.  Instead of the waveforms being tuned and triggered from the 4 channels, all the notes are laid across the keyboard chromatically to form a tonal keyboard instrument.  In addition to the same Waveforms, Velocity and Effects sections found in the drum modules, the Syndrum Synth and DS-4 Synth offer keyboard-specific features.
