Future Retro Mondovox Mono Synth Combiner provides new ways to play, control, and breathe new life into your MIDI sound modules. With the Mondovox, you can polyphonically play up to 16 monophonic synthesizers in ways you would expect to find in features-laden polysynths, expanding upon those ideas for many new and exciting possibilities.
Although it's designed to play multiple monosynths (such as our popular XS semi-modular synthesizer) polyphonically, the Mondovox can be used with any monophonic, polyphonic, multitimbral or single voice, analog, digital, virtual synthesizer or sampler.... it doesn't matter, as long as it has MIDI.
The Modovox takes polyphonic MIDI data and translates it so each voice plays on its own MIDI channel.
There are nine different polyphonic modes of operation:
UNISON: Stack up to 16 voices to play in unison for one big sound. Unlike traditional polysynths that only allow you to play a single note while in unison mode, the Mondovox allows you to play up to 16 notes simultaneously, creating huge unison chords. Obviously, this will depend on the available voices in the sound module you are controlling. While digital and virtual analog synths usually provide high voice counts to support these unison chords, controlling analog monosynths in this way will activate their auto-glide portamento circuitry.
A universal DC power supply is provided with each unit, that can operate anywhere in the world.
