Introducing Modern Sounds Pluto - 2-Voice, 2-Sequencer Mini-Modular Synthesizer

Pluto – First Walkthrough and Demo

"This is the first video walkthrough of Pluto, a 2-voice, 2--sequencer mini-modular synthesizer. Lots more to cover, but this should give a good overview of how it works.
Skip to 15:45​ for no-talking demo.

Pluto – Some Pluto-only synth jams, no talking

"The fam helped put together some quick jams. Audio is a direct recording of Pluto. No effects added. (Sorry about the blurriness and intermitent shaky cam. Camera is doing some autofocus weirdness.)

"Pluto is compact and portable, with abilities that belie its small size. Five channels of modulation (named for the five moons of Pluto), two voices, two sequencers, a mini-keyboard, and onboard delay make Pluto its own complete sound environment, but it can happily play with all your other gear.

The design of Pluto draws from a legacy of portable electronic instruments, from the Buchla Music Easel to 80s Casio synthesizers. With a focused, approachable interface, Pluto invites exploration.

  1. Sorry, The International Astronomical Union has demoted Pluto and it can no longer be referenced as a synthesizer. Sorry, I could not help myself.

  2. This is a no brainer if you like modular - the smallest but still effective complete modular system!

    if it is not 1000€£$ ofc)
