AtomoSynth Mochika XL Synth & Sequencer

Mochika XL Synth

Boutique synth maker AtomoSynth has introduced Mochika XL – a translucent sequencer + synthesizer combination.

Specifications:

  • The Mochika XL synth features one analog square and saw waveform VCO (voltage controled oscillator), with a pitch range, from subsonic to ultrasonic sound.
  • Glide effect with a large range.
  • One square and triangle waveform LFO (low frequency oscillator), that modulates the VCO for the vibrato effect or the VCF for a tremolo effect, creating old school arcade Atari-like sounds.
  • White noise generator that triggers the VCO and can create percussion like sounds, or mix the the noise with the VCO.
  • Built in vactrol based Low Pass and High Pass Filter with cut off and peak controls and a envelope generator with decay control.
  • Built in 8 step sequencer with global gate time control, note on/off switch and pitch slider for each step.
  • The built in sequencer also has 8 playing modes:
    • Oscillator mode, the Mochika becomes a drone oscillator, you can switch in real time between the 8 notes tweaking a knob.
    • 4 step, 6 step, and 8 step sequencer mode.
    • 4 step, 6 step, and 8 step forth and back sequence mode.
    • Random mode, it generates a large pseudo random sequence.
  • The Mochika XL features a MIDI input to sync it any midi device sending midi clock signals, the mochika can sync 1, 2, 4 and up to 8 times the tempo of the master clock midi device.
  • All the Mochika sequencer modes, except oscillator mode, can be midi synchronized.
  • The instrument is lit with 1 bright red led that indicates the LFO Rate, and 8 red leds to indicate the step that is being played.
  • The Analog Sequencer is packed in a laser cut clear acrylic case.
  • The instrument is powered directly from 110V or 220V AC.
  • Dimensions: 177mm(W), 228 mm(D), 80mm(H. included rubber feet and knobs)

One thought on “AtomoSynth Mochika XL Synth & Sequencer

  1. I ordered one of these a month ago. I never got a verification e-mail or the synth. They charged my paypal and didn’t bother sending me their product. I’m trying to resolve it with paypal. It seems like a great product, but I guess I’ll never know. I hope I can get my $ back. Their sales department sucks.
