  1. Finally a compact analogue vocoder that doesnt cost an arm and a leg! This might be the first moog desktop I’ll buy

  2. Very nice!

    Personally not into vocoders that much tho.
    Waiting for the labyrinth(!) and mirror(?) moog semimodulars.

    1. me too
      but as a multi band filter and multi band audio to cv converter it is intresting
      I don’t like this form factor but i guess this is moog now
