Intellijel Morgasmatron Hands-On Demo

Intellijel shared this hands-on demo of the Morgasmatron Dual Multimode Self-Oscillating VCF and Crossfader.

The Morgasmatron is is the third generation of Intellijel’s Korgasmatron filter, designed in collaboration with David G. Dixon.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

The Morgasmatron features two completely independent six-mode filters (labeled “A” and “B”) — each with its own mode-select knob, input, output, cutoff, resonance, Q-drive and gain control. Each filter has a pair of CV inputs (one with a built-in attenuator and the other with a built-in attenuverter) for modulating cutoff, and another CV input for modulating resonance.

Both filters self-oscillate at maximum Q, and produce pitched sine waves that track the two separate 1V/OCT inputs. You can use the two filters independently of one another, or you can use them together (in either a series or parallel connection) and smoothly crossfade between them using either the XFADE knob or the XFADE CV input and built-in attenuverter.

You can flip the DRY switches to instantly bypass either or both filters; invert the phase of Filter B; or overdrive Filter A by switching on the new Overdrive circuit. A MIX output provides (as you might suspect) a mixed output of the two filters.

Pricing and Availability

The Morgasmatron is available now for US $389.

  1. the korgasmatron is amazing, but i’m not clear on what’s new in this release, the reasoning behind the update and name change. eg, does it still resemble the ms20 filters? i’ve heard of build issues with the earlier versions so that’s what i’d be hoping to gear improvements on.

    1. Taken from the Intellijel website: “once we experienced the purity and range of its finely finely re-tuned filters; all new overdrive circuit; new ring modulation capabilities, we knew it was something much more than a Korgasmatron III. It was a MORgasmatron!”
