CAT: M.BRANE 11

Full MIDI controlled analog percussion module
Review: The M.Brane 11 is a great sounding, dedicated percussion module with a real analog sound production. Actually it is a single voice analog synthesizer which is optimized for producing membrane-like snare/percussion drum sounds.
The M.Brane 11 is fully controllable by MIDI. Furthermore, there is an audio input provided to trigger the sound by a drum pad piezo pick up or an external audio signal. The usage of this unique drum module is simple and self-explaining at most points.
2 analog T-bridge oscillators become electronic membranes. Why? Because they can be coupled, and their dampening can be controlled. Then add a little noise, add a little envelope, and the brand new electronic percussion synthesizer of Jomox is ready.
But because this would have just been too simple, everything is storable again and controllable by MIDI. You can use this small box either in a live setup driven by a hardware sequencer or in a production as very versatile synth in order to create incredible analog electronic percussions.

Analog stereo filter with built-in step sequencer, a sounding digital FX chip, 2 x LFOs and envelope modulation
Review: The Jomox Moonwind is a true analog stereo filter with built-in step sequencer, a fantastic sounding digital FX chip, 2 x LFOs and envelope modulation.
Everything is storable and controllable via MIDI. You can play the Moonwind like a synth by Midi notes and play melodies on the filters if they whistle in self-resonant mode.
The sequencer is able to control cutoff, Q and resonance per step and filter and thus turns the stereo filter with analog fed back effects into a creative instrument of its own.
This makes the Moonwind an easy-to-use and awesome analog sounding engine that is playable like a synth and can be seamlessly integrated into a DAW recording system.
CAT: T-RESONATOR MKII

Time woven filter matrix
Review: T stands for Time.
The T-Resonator transforms timely events into an analog feedbacked filter network. What comes out of this you can hear in the audio samples.
The T-Resonator is something like an M-Resonator + Digital Delay. But you can select 8 different delay algorithms, each with different delays and different feedbacks and modulate them even with an LFO.
Delays reach from less than a millisecond to 1 second, range and structure is depending on the algorithm.
The delay feedback comes across the analog filters, of course.
You can create gaining analog echoes, klingon parties by extremely feedbacked wave guide algorithm and much more.
By the analog feedback everything sounds organic.
The screaming analog feedbacks can delay themselves and thereby form new sound patterns.
The sine LFO gets retriggered by the audio signal and can be shaped with the audio envelope or just run alone. In center position the amount is 0, to the left it's envelope-shaped LFO, to the right it's only LFO.
The filters are made from discreet parts and form a 24 dB pole lowpass filter transistor cascade.
They can, in any thinkable way, be self feedbacked and be coupled or feedbacked with each other, so that extreme sounds and chaotic states create - all what you need today for creative analog sound design.
Incredible bass gains or screaming scratch sounds are no problem. The mix pots are zeroed in center position; any other angle will couple or feedback negatively or positively. FM in both directions is also available.
The input has an adjustable gain and a Hi-Z input to plug in a guitar directly. Any line level signal can be processed, be it either mono or stereo.
