It's weird that modules get released on matrix synth or twitter before here. I guess he doesn't want to preach to the choir.
Anyway, nice little demo video. Red faceplates are swanky.

Looks nice. Wonder if it could be used for cleaner more traditional (and controllable) VCA usage or if it adds that troglosonic charm to everything? :combine:

stereo pannable high-gain tube overdrive certainly sounds enticing! :sb: :mrgreen: :party:

Love this line:

"when Bobs & Dons were Raymonds & Laurens: the synths were wrought of glowing glass tubes and VCAs shaped the sound as well as controlled it."

Dig the crazy-lookin' sequencer on the right:

[video][/video]

I get the impression that these are 12AX7 or 12AU7 tubes. They are described as twin-triodes and they look like 12Axx series alright.

I'm really diggin' the dual LEDs for monitoring Amplitude and Drive. I might have gone with yellow and blue as the red could be (I dunno) a bit hard to see against the red panel unless the room is darkened. Plus, yellow is a bit of a tribute.

Judging from the demo video, this thing does not do subtle. Shame, 'cause I really would be interested in it if it did...

Love the fact that it needs a separate power supply. Very hardcore :sb:

Just read this from the Trogo m333 info....

"And, of course, ALL Trogotronic instruments are hand-made in the stinkin’ USA by subhumans rather than contracted out to the cheapest overseas bidder by the boardroom fascist overlords."

:hihi:

wow !

Is anyone currently using one of these?

I'd love to get some "hands-on" feedback, though the "ears-on" feedback I'm getting from watching that video over and over again is pretty swell on its' own.

I don't think it's available yet. Anxiously waiting, myself. :hyper:

I have one of these on preorder from Escape from Noise. I had thought it should have arrived by now but no such luck. :(

I'll try to post some demos when i get it though.

Thanks! :tu:

Well in this video: [video][/video] at 1:48, the overdrive on high still sounds neat. It pretty much sounds like a low drive would be nice and subtle :yay:
I hope this too has a power connector at the back like the trogo m676 so you can just ran a cable into the back of your case.

Word on the street is it should arrive by next week.. :tu:

Escape From Noise will supposedly be first in the world to get these delivered. A friendly tip for whomever might be thinking of getting one of these as quickly as possible.

I'm really interested in this module. Am I right to assume that the psu is a wallwart? I have a mission 9 and am wondering what the least obtrusive way to incorporate this would be.....
