MESSE 2014: MFB Dominion- Crikey (video)

Two weeks till production - and what a synth      14/03/14

   QuickTime (MP4)  | iOS MP4
7:34 mins    

Another treat from the Alex4 distributor: MFB Dominion 1  -a fully analog mono synth with some digital control aspects (ADSR and LFO) but proper VCOs.

Each Oscillator features PW modulation on all waves (yay!)

patch memories, ring mod, sync and 12 types of filter plus three envelopes, sequencer/arpegiator.

I have to say thing thing sounds flippin' awesome - and priced at around €1400 its a contender for mono of the year (so far)

Sure sounds a lot better than the older (and much less expensive) MFB synths I've owned.

I like this kind of presentation. Thats the difference when you have an actual developer in front of the camera instead of a salesman. Less talking, more action.

as soon as i can afford this i will buy it! what a sound and what a broad palette of colours.

also the controlpanel and connections are far beyond anything all of that those other va "new classics" have to offer.

haven´t been that much "aaahhh" on any new synth for quite some time now.

please try to get this one for a soniclab feature. and then for a heads up with the system 1... :-)

I spend auntie a while playing this at the MuiskMesse - it sounds truly awesome and unique - a real future classic in the making. Paraphonically mode is awesome (with bass note priority so it doesn't drop out) and so many additional modulation options so you can expand it with other modules. And that's a lot of true analog synth for the money.

That's some serious shit right there. And I was going to go with the Sub37 - now I'm not so sure

also tested this at the Musikmesse and loved it. Prefered this over the Moog Sub37. Really beefy Oscilator sounds with Sync on Osc 2+3. LFO ranges can be switchted, so it goes well into audio range and for anything beyond there is FM. the envelopes are super snappy too. haven't been so impressed by a mono synth since a long time.
