Russian Semi-Modular Synth Needs Funding

Muscarin Eurorack or standalone desktop synth is based on cross-modulation technology      23/10/18

kNoB technology, a micro-company based in Russia, has an indiegogo campaign for Muscarin, which they describe as an analog semi-modular synth with eurorack compatibility and unique synthesis function. Here’s the details in their own words…

Muscarin is an analog music synthesizer, that has everything that’s needed for creating music and synthesis of sounds. Designed by kNoB technology, it is based on cross-modulation technology. It is designed as semi-modular and can be used by its own, or as a part of a eurorack system.

It is made for generating standard sounds and sound effects, as well as for extremely changing their sound while playing, converting it too complex structured noises. It has full manual hands-on controls (switches and knobs), as well as it can be controlled by CV (control voltage).

Early Muscarin synthesizers were made only for sound experiments and could be classified as noise generators, although it always was a powerful instrument, combining additive, subtractive, FM and Cross-modulation synthesis. Later it was decided to fully reconsider the concept of Muscarin, to widen its range of use, adding new functions, without limiting its noise abilities, and making it more universal and flexible. With this purpose, it was designed as 3u eurorack and has a lot of inputs and outputs.

Muscarin is able to generate bass, lead, piano, organ, violin sounds. But it’s major difference is cross-modulation, which helps to create complex, multifactorial noises, and noise effects, as well as lo-fi drum and percussion sounds.
