Update: "Demonstration of the MMO-4 synthesizer from http://www.nozoïd.com"
MMO-4 is a digital, semi-modular, analogue style synthesizer. Build around Frequency Modulation Synthesis (FM), this synthesizer is mostly dedicated to atonal sound generation. From fat drone to percussive noise, MMO-4 offer a rich and complex timbre control.
Why is it so special?
Unlike most FM synthesiser, the MMO-4 is not limited to specific modulation routing. All four oscillators can modulate/be modulated by all oscillators. Modulation parameters are accessible thanks to 12 knob for a continuous adjustment of the timbre.
It also offer a custom amplitude modulation technique where each oscillator amplitude can be modulate prior to a wave shaper in order to add harmonics without frequency variation.
Also, a joystick allows an easy manipulation of most parameters, for a fast and expressive control of the sound.
What is inside?
30 control knobs
A joystick to control modulation parameters
1 MIX (4 channels)
FM and Wave shaping modulation
1 LFO with configurable waveform and modulation control
A very powerful digital connection matrix
2 octaves keyboard with portamento
1 digital matrix to control the oscillators modulations
1 Stereo line IN with envelope follower and gate control
1 Stereo audio OUT
1 MIDI input (note / velocity / pitch wheel / control change)
1 analog CV IN and 1 GATE IN"
