I am currently prototyping the moroco stereo synthesizer- it is the moroco and more- twice the height in rackspace too...

man darf also gespannt sein...
DAS ist was anderes, aber generell ist Moroco ein Filter, so wars gemeint.
Wer hat eigentlich gesagt das es keinen M3X2 geben wird? Verschoben ist nicht aufgehoben... :)

Hi All! It's been some while since I updated the website- I've basically been building up M5s and

also working on two new prototypes! These being the long awaited M3X2 and a new varient

of the moroco stereo filterbank- it's now the moroco stereo synthesizer! Within the next few days,

I shall provide you with protoype pictures to let you all see what is happening...

Below is the first prototype pic of the M3X2- this is the format that I am going on...

Initially- the M3X2 is to built in a batch of 30 units to get started- sales shall be made on a first come

first serve basis- price is to established shortly!


New features of the M3X2 more use of discrete parts- ie, transistors. The ADSR Envelope Generators are

entirly new- all transistor based- they are seriously snappy! The Noise Generator is a new design-

featuring 'Light Noise' and 'Dark Noise'- totaly variable between both 'colours'...the Filter has been

improved upon- as have the oscillators- going back to the Op-Amp/Comparitor/Transistor design...

The front panel now features separate CV Inputs to all three Oscillators/Filter/VCA with a +5V Gate

input replacing the defunct S-Trig. Each Oscillator has it's own separate output, as does the Filter and

the VCA......Oh yes, Analogue Glide has been included too- as well as the Digital

Glide built into the MIDI to CV section. There is also a 9 waveform LFO built in featuring Triangle, Saw Up,

Saw Down, 5 rectangular shapes and of course Sample and hold...this is an exciting synth in a solid steel,

6U rackspace/angled wedge!
