Smallest CV/Gate tabletop synths?

Post by JSRockit » Mon Mar 16, 2015 9:07 pm

I'm looking for a small tabletop synth (i.e. not a rack or keyboard synth) with GV/Gate ins ... I'm aware of the Moog Minitaur, a few MFB synths, the Technosaurus Microcon, and the Dark Energy. Anything else out there in the sub $600 category? Thanks. The Moog is perfect except for it cannot play high notes... :evil:

Microbrute is the only thing that comes to mind but you do not keys.

Check out the Pittsburgh Modular System 10 - little more than $600, but great bang for buck.

Awesome... this is what I'm after. Looks new... and not shipping. Anyone know of the price?

I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
