The Mochika XL is back!!!


Mochika XL version 2.1


Analog synthesizer with 8 steps analog sequencer, midi syncable.

Let's make some serious noise!!!
this machine is great for live performance and improvisation for creating insane effect loops, acid basslines or crazy random rhythms.
Make noise - experimental music, change the sound in real time by tweeking the knobs on stage or in studio.
Connect it to your favorite effects (delay, flange, etc, etc)and create a wide sort of rhytm textures and soundscapes.
Sync it to any midi device like a drumbox midi sequencer or computer and play live.
or create random sonic sequences and blow minds with this beautiful lighted analog sequencer synth box!!!.

Specifications

This synth features one analog square and saw waveform VCO (voltage controled oscillator) with a huge pitch range, from subsonic to ultrasonic sound.

Glide effect with a large range for radical portamento effect.

One square and triangle waveform LFO (low frequency oscillator), that modulates the VCO for the vibrato effect or the VCF for a tremolo effect, creating old school arcade Atari-like sounds.

White noise generator that triggers the VCO and can create percussion like sounds, or mix the the noise with the VCO.

Also, it has a built in vactrol based Low Pass and High Pass Filter with cut off and peak controls and a envelope generator with decay control to create a wide sort of timbres and sound possibilities.

Built in 8 step sequencer with global gate time control, note on/off switch and pitch knob for each step.

The built in sequencer also has 8 playing modes and 4 gate arpegiator modes:
Oscillator mode, the Mochika becomes a drone oscillator, you can switch in real time between the 8 notes tweaking a knob.
4 step, 6 step, and 8 step sequencer mode.
4 step, 6 step, and 8 step forth and back sequence mode.
Random mode, it generates a large pseudo random sequence, seed of chaos!!!
Gate Arpegiator with 4 patterns, you can switch in real time between the 8 notes tweaking a knob. and sync it by midi

The Mochika XL features a MIDI input to sync it any midi device sending midi clock signals, the mochika can sync 1, 2, 4 and up to 8 times the tempo of the master clock midi device.
All the Mochika sequencer modes, except oscillator mode, can be midi synchronized.

Also the instrument is ligthed with 1 bright red led that indicates the LFO Rate, and 8 red leds to indicate the step that is being played. Very useful when you play it on a dark stage.
The Analog Sequencer is packed in a cool laser cut clear acrilic case that shows all the hand made analog circuitry.
The instrument features a switcher to select 110V or 220V mains power supply, so you can use it anywhere.
Dimensions: 177mm (W), 205mm (D), 80mm (H. incuded rubber feet and knobs)
