    Description
    Let's make some serious noise!!! This machine is great for live performance and improvisation for creating insane effect loops, acid basslines or crazy random rhythms. Make noise - experimental music, change the sound in real time by tweeking the knobs on stage or in studio. Connect it to your favorite effects (delay, flange, etc, etc)and create a wide sort of rhytm textures and soundscapes. Sync it to any midi device like a drumbox midi sequencer or computer and play live or create random sonic sequences and blow minds with this beautiful lighted analog sequencer synth box!!!.

    Specifications:

    This synth features one analog square and saw waveform VCO (voltage controled oscillator) with a huge pitch range, from subsonic to ultrasonic 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 that triggers the VCO and can create percussion like sounds, or mix the the noise with the VCO.

    Also, it has a built in vactrol based Low Pass and High Pass Filter with cut off and peak controls and a envelope generator with decay control 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 8 playing modes and 4 gate arpegiator modes:

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

    4 step, 6 step, and 8 step sequencer mode.

    4 step, 6 step, and 8 step forth and back sequence mode.

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

    Gate Arpegiator with 4 patterns, you can switch in real time between the 8 notes tweaking a knob. and sync it by midi
    CV and Gate Outputs to control other analog synthesizers.

    The Mochika XL features a MIDI input to sync it any midi device sending midi clock signals, the mochika can sync 1, 2, 4 and up to 8 times the tempo of the master clock midi device.

    All the Mochika sequencer modes, except oscillator mode, can be midi synchronized.

    Also the instrument is ligthed with 1 bright red led that indicates the LFO Rate, and 8 red leds to indicate the step that is being played. Very useful when you play it on a dark stage.

    The Analog Sequencer is packed in a cool laser cut clear acrilic case that shows all the hand made analog circuitry.

    The instrument is powered directly from 110V and 220V AC, it features a witcher to select the mains voltage depending of your country.
