New Dreadbox Synth - Medusa


Buying Choices

It seems everyone is doing it, Dreadbox has just announced Medusa (following their mythology theme) a three oscillator mono synth with a 2-pole resonant filter, 12 patchpoints and a 64 step sequencer developed by Polish innovators Polyend.

No sound examples or videos just yet, but there is a price - €429  availability December 2017. Its no secret we're fans of the Dreadbox sound here so will be interested to hear just what it sounds like. They say the VCOs are classic Dreadbox - so presumably the same core as in their other products, but has a brand new 12dB filter - the Erebus has a 2-pole filter too, so we hope it has some of that character the "thick" parameter looks promising and perhaps a sign of the quirky but musical tweaks they often include to the basic subtractive design.

Features:

  • All Analog Circuit developed by Dreadbox
  • Midi to CV, Sequencer and Arpeggiator developed by Polyend
  • 64 step Sequencer that can store the Filter's Cut off, Modulation Wheel and Velocity values, with a memory of 7 sequences
  • Arpeggiator with Up, Up-Down, 2 Octave Up, 2 Octave Down, 2 Octave Up-Down or Played Order
  • 3 Classic Dreadbox VCOs:
  • 2x osc with saw, pulse or triangle wave
  • 1x osc with advanced wave forming (7 different waveforms)
  • A brand new 12dB/oct Filter design with variable thickness (active for frequencies 110Hz and below)
  • A dedicated Attack, Decay/Release, Sustain Envelope Generator to the Filter and the Amp
  • A Simple and Easy to use Modulation section
  • You can Polychain multiple units and achieve Polyphony
  • 8 patch points for eurorack experience
