New $499 Two-Voice Mini-Modular Synthesizer, Pluto
Modern Sounds has announced the availability of Pluto, a new compact two-voice mini-modular synthesizer.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
“Pluto is compact and portable, with abilities that belie its small size. Five channels of modulation (named for the five moons of Pluto), two voices, two sequencers, a mini-keyboard, and onboard effects make Pluto its own complete sound environment, but it can happily play with all your other gear.
The design of Pluto draws from a legacy of portable electronic instruments, from the Buchla Music Easel to 80s Casio synthesizers. With a focused, approachable interface, Pluto invites exploration.”
