Oddly enough....The Agonizer was my first 5U module in 2007.
I only had a Frac rack and wasn't interested in anything else at the time....
But I wanted an Agonizer.....So Eric sold me one on a dotcom panel.
After that is was like "well, I guess I better get some other 5U stuff too" :lol:


Now is the time for 5U :hihi:

Your Berserker got me into the 5U and I plan on snagging one of these. Keep the 5U stuff coming!

I think Eric helped with the design but I'm fairly certain this isn't a metasonix product. I don't think Brian is working for them anymore.

zerosum was never an owner of metasonix, eric has always been the owner. there was a notice posted in the metasonix sub forum. they are still cool with each other and came to synth meet in berkeley together, brian is just pursuing his own ideas. instead of having one awesome tube based company now there are two. both brian and eric are really great guys and i wish them both the best!!! metasonix is kicking ass as always and zerosum inertia has some great stuff in the works!!!!

Metasonix designed the circuit.
Brian Kirby from Zerosum Inertia sourced all the parts, built the module, and is selling and supporting the module.
Metasonix receives a royalty payment for designing the circuit.
Metasonix isn't responsible for sales or support.
But it is a Metasonix product, right?
It says right on the panel:
TX-1 AGONIZER CIRCUIT DESIGNED BY ERIC BARBOUR OF METASONIX.
BUILT BY ZEROSUM INERTIA


I don't know how to make it any clearer.
I see this and the Berserker both even have the name Metasonix right on the front
That was a joint effort. It was a Frankenstein baby.
Are they trying to be kept secret from the general populous?
I'm not interested in discussing this anymore Baker. Please stick to the topic of The Agonizer synthesizer module.
