Dreadbox Murmux Semi-Modular


DREADBOX MURMUX SEMI-MODULAR, new analogue mono synths

Introduced at NAMM 2014, the Murmux is probably the most resolutely boutique synthesiser to appear here. Built entirely by hand in Athens, the attention to detail on the Murmux’s stunningly retro, tweed-clad enclosure (designed in collaboration with Black Science) should give you a clue about how lovingly this synth has been created.

There are two version of the Murmux. The neat Initiate version is a fine synth in its own right, but if you can stretch to the more expensive Semi-Modular we’d strongly recommend it. Whichever one you go for you’ll get two oscillators, each with sub-oscillators, two envelopes and an LFO. The Semi-Modular adds a handful of additional features including a slightly more advanced filter section and four-stage modulator source.

Dreadbox also just released the affordable Erebus, a much more simple synth which still offers a very good selection of patch points for semi-modular use, built-in MIDI and even a paraphonic mode, all for less than £350.

With such strong offerings at a range of prices, we wouldn’t be surprised if Dreadbox soon became regarded as one of the most popular players on the boutique synth scene.

  • Wow, so you can plug your guitar on ‘audio in’ and what comes out is the synth sound? Can the Moog Sub 37 do this? For midi sync, I would need midi connections right? Which is better Sub 37 or Pro 2?

  • What are you talking about?

  • Shhhh don’t tell anybody about the Pulse 2, it can be our little secret ok?! 😉

  • MFB Dominion Anyone????????

  • Pro 2 or Sub 37 ist also the question for me!

  • Always wondered what the Elektron Monomachine, looks sick.

  • Damn what about the MFB Dominion 1? That’s easily one of the best monosynths on the market today.
