Atomosynth Mochika X2

   0 reviews  -  710 views

    Analog synthesizer with built in step sequencer, midi syncable.

    Let's make some serious noise!!!

    The new Mochika X2, is a great machine for live performance and improvisation, for creating insane effect loops, acid bass lines or crazy random rhythms, noise and experimental music.

    Create your own organic analog sound in real time by tweaking the knobs on stage or in studio.
    Now with a crazy 30 mode sequencer, you can change between any mode while playing, freeze the sequence or even change the initial step, define repetitions for each step and change the gate behavior, all live!!

    Connect it to your favorite effects (delay, flange, etc, etc) and create a wide sort of rhythm textures and soundscapes.

    Sync it to any midi device like a drumbox midi sequencer or computer and play live, now with a midi thru connector to add it to your midi chain, or sync it with your modular rig or other analog gear by its external analog clock input and output.

    The Mochika X2 is built like a tank, with a rugged grey metal case with all switchers and potentiometers fixed to the case. If you break it... you've got an anger problem!!!


    The new Mochika X2 features one analog square and saw waveform VCO (voltage controlled oscillator) with a huge pitch range, from subsonic to ulciatrasonic sound.

    Glide effect with a large range for radical portamento effect.

    One square and triangle waveform LFO (low frequency oscillator), that modulates the VCO for the vibrato effect or the VCF for a tremolo effect, creating old school arcade Atari-like sounds.

    White noise generator.

    Vactrol based Low Pass and High Pass Filter with cut off and peak controls, one envelope generator with decay and level control and normal/inverted envelope switcher to create a wide sort of timbres and sound possibilities.

    Built in 8 step sequencer with global gate time control, note on/off switch and pitch knob for each step.

    The built in sequencer also has 30 modes:

    Oscillator mode, the Mochika becomes a drone oscillator, you can switch in real time between the 8 notes tweaking a knob.

    Normal sequence modes, from 2 to 8 steps length.

    Forth and back sequence modes, from 3 to 8 steps length.

    Random mode and random repetition, it generates a large pseudo random sequence, seed of chaos!!!

    Repetition mode in which you can define from 1 to 8 repetitions for each step.

    Gate type mode in which you switch between normal gate (time defined by the gate knob) and hold, for each step.

    Gate Arpeggiator with 8 patterns, you can switch in real time between the 8 notes tweaking a knob and sync it by midi or external analog clock.

    Freeze sequence effect.

    First step effect, you can define in which step the sequence will start.

    CV and Gate Outputs to control an external analog synthesizer.

    External analog clock input and output to synchronize it with your modular rig, another MochikaX2 or any other analog gear.
    Midi input to sync it any midi device sending midi clock signals, it can sync 1, 2, 4 and up to 8 times the tempo of the master clock midi device.

    Midi thru to add the Mochika X2 to your midi chain.
    All the sequencer modes, except oscillator mode, can be midi synchronized.

    Rugged steel case with all the potentiometers and switchers fixed to the case.
