Greece, while known for its synth players - at least one synth player - Vangelis - possibly THE most famous synthesizer player in the world EVER, but actual instruments, thats a different matter. We spotted these Freaqbox Murmux Synthesizers after a tip off from Richard Nichol of Pittsburgh Modular, down in Hall E. One thing that was particularlty groovy was the tweed cloth covering front and back - most unusual.

There are three models - the Murmux Initiate:

2 Voltage Controlled (VC) oscillators with suboctave Saw and square wave4-pole Resonant VC Low Pass FilterTriangle wave LFO modulationVC Amp2 Envelopes - 1 for the Amp & 1 for the FilterExternal Audio InputControlable via Midi Keyboard or Analog Keyboard (CV Gate)

Murmux Pedal Synth - this is a bass pedal with hand carved keyboard and what looks like a cross between the Initiate and the Semi Modular synth structure in a floor unit.

Prices are $869 for the Murmux Initiate, $1365 for the Semi Modular and $2650 for the Pedal Synth.
