The review covers the basics of the Murmux, including the different sections and features, some sound examples and the different controls and parameters.
“All in all, I LOVE it,” notes ProckGnosis, “addictive as hell to play around with and in some ways cooler than my Moog Voyager…”
This review does not get into patching the Murmux with the CV/Gate inputs and outputs. See Henrik Lendal’s video, below, for examples of patching the Murmux.
Here’s what ProckGnosis sees as the pros and cons of the Murmux:
- The synth sounds great and is a blast to mess around with
- Looks as great as it sounds
- Great sounding filter
- A slightly different approach on some features (the 4-stage mod for example)
- Sturdy construction with solid knobs!
- The semi-modular patching option (sadly not explored in this video)
- Playing legato with a MIDI controller does not retrigger the filter envelope, but playing with a CV/gate input DOES retrigger the filter envelope playing legato or staccato
- Filter has a slight spike on the key-up with certain settings
