    1. Hades is $339 and Erebus is $599 (for standalone units). Of course they do offer some eurorack modules and the new White Line series from them ranges in the $39-$139 area.

  1. I’m lucky enough to have their Murmux v2, and it sounds sublime. I can vouch that this company makes killer synths!

  2. I own the Hades and Erebus and absolutely LOVE them! I think I will sell my Korg MS-20 Mini and put the money towards the Nyx. I want all 3! Dreadbox are amazing, just love their synths. This reminds me of something in between the Erebus an Murmux V2. Was so gutted I missed out on the Murmux V2, but this looks great! Patch the 3 together to make a monster 4 Osc, 2 Sub Osc paraphonic analog synth with drive, echo, and reverb. 🙂

  3. I’ll second what others are saying, Dreadbox makes incredible synths. I have an Erebus, and it has wonderful sounding Oscillators; they have a real heft.
