New demo!



This one is more on the melodic side with song fragments and experiments. I was recording some tests with it and Silent Way and thought I might as well keep them and throw them into a demo. Enjoy!

My Dominion GAS is back thanks to your demo, nicely done. It's a tough call between this and the Pro2, thankfully I can afford neither right now.

love the look of this synth , it feels like a bit of a classic waiting to age , reminds me of the Powertran a bit and and Crumar ds2 , its a certain vibe , a bit rough around the edges and loose and worn.
n years to come.

And here I had my heart set on a sub 37 for my next major purchase but this is giving me second thoughts. About the same price, this seems a lot more flexible and unique though. 2 things that may stop me however is that I kinda want the moog sound and the build quality is bound to be a bit better on the moog. This one seems like tons of fun though.

The MFB is definitely the way to go if you are a Eurorack guy. In fact add a Moogy filter and VCA to your rack, feed the MFB VCOs into them and there's your Moog. But if you're after a Moog sound, the MFB is not going to do it. It will do 70s crusty sounds all you want but not that wet woody Moog sound.

Yes I said "wet woody."

I really am starting to like this synth, thanks to your videos GuyaGuy! It really seems to have its own sound - which is surprisingly tough to come by these days. It shines in the midrange kinda like the MS20 but....different!

It also seems like the sound design ceiling is quite high = Lotsa fun!

Guys, can you run a sequence in the background while playing mono or duophonic melody on keyboard? Any issues so far? Thanks in advance!

I don't see a way of doing that. Seems like the keys are off in seq mode except for transposing. You can however program the sequencer to play up to 3 notes at once.
