In proper teaser fashion, specifications are to come. But here’s an audio preview:
We’ll have specifications, release date and pricing as they are officially announced.

Welcome lads. I am proud of you and look forward to your first of what I hope will be many offerings.
Paul Maddox is a great guy, hoping he and his friends at Modulus do very well!
Modulus Music isn’t a new company, but it seems to be making a comeback after closing in 2005. The company was originally started by Paul Maddox, and the first 30 Monowave synthesizers were sold under this company, before Paul sold the rights to Elby Designs.
yeah they did a lot of custom stuff, you order first, then they build it.
they were in the 2,500 euro range, and in ~2006 the site was taken down due to
the cost of biz vs customer demand vs commercial companies.
blog entry here (from 2006)
not sure if this will be a ready to purchase synth, or a opt-in deal – pay now and they put you on build list.
Oh my! This looks promising. Btw where’s the Dominion 5, Manfred Fricke?
Don’t care if its a new British company or not, we need more British synths.
An analog poly from Novation? I’d be down with that.
I’ve just forgotten dsi are putting out the pro 2. Out if nowhere!!!
Sounds like a poly, different game than the Pro 2 and (I suspect) priced well above it.
Yeah must be a Poly 5 octaves in a mono just wouldn’t be right!!
What a great time to be an electronic musician. Not such a great time for pretty much everything else in the world, but for synth geeks, this is the golden age. Can’t wait to see what this knob encrusted beauty is all about….
I meant to hit thumbs up, sorry! Yes, the world is a mess, but the synth world stands as a beacon of hope. If only we could apply a low pass filter to the idiots in charge, and modulate policy with an alpha wave.
Looking forward to seeing this.
That’s some serious sizzle going on in the last few seconds.
Bravo, Paul! I hope to hear more.
I think Rick Wakeman would like this one.
Hybrid synth? Polyphonic (judging from the number of keys on the blurred photo)? Lots of knobs? That might just be the keyboard I’ve been waiting for.
It looks so beatifull but i am afraid it will be very expensive too!!
thru blurring photo we can guess its design borrowed from arturia control keyboard ?
Looks more like some of the custom circuit bent keyboards I’ve seen, which are very impressive.
Dedicated 16-step sequencer knobs. nice.
You may be right, nice one!
To me, it looks like a mix of the Oberheim 4-voice and the Waldorf XTK. So yes, I like it 😉
To me it looks like white OB-12.
