      1. i would say a variety of finters , envelopes and oscillators beat having two of the same thing. This plus a microbrute would llikely be amazing imho.

  1. they just need to come out with a second version with a 24/db oct filter, those two plus a microbrute would be a powerful array of sounds, and a generally powerful monosynth.

  2. Like that was amazing! My god, so my Wishlist is a Moog Mother 32 and a Dreadbox playing nice with each other streaming audio into my Waves effects rack being recorded on Ableton……Wow, just wow!

  3. I’m totally new at this stuff and wondering how you connect this to a microbrute since the microbrute has no midi out. Please don’t laugh at my question- I’m really clueless-I’m so new at this that my microbrute just arrived in the mail and I haven’t opened it up yet,

  4. In it’s most basic form you would use CV cables to connect the Gate Out from the Microbrute to the Gate In on this (which would trigger the envelope) and then the Pitch Out of the MB to the pitch in on this so it would play the same note.

    You could then use the envelope and lfo output on the MB to control the filter / pulsewidth / vca inputs on this if you wanted.
