Dreadbox has released a very limited edition version of the discontinued Murmux. This new Murmux V2 is limited to 50 units worldwide, each hand built and sporting a beastly black finish.

The Beast

Each Murmux V2 is hand wired, soldered and the wooden enclosures are each handmade by Black Science, which are described as ‘pieces of art’ on the company website. Not sure I would go that far with the description, but the images on the website do look very good.

The Murmux V2 is an analogue paraphonic synthesiser which geared towards aggressive synth tones, according to their description, although they do also mention it can do more than just these. Make of that what you will, as there are currently no audio demos on the page, making it hard to judge their statement.

Boutique Synth

To me it looks like an interesting synth. I do like eurorack style layouts as it’s fun to use patch cables and you can easily see what you are doing. It’s so much better than fiddly menus and navigating your way around on-screen plugins. My only gripe is the limited production run, but I can understand why as there is a lot of work involved building synthesisers like these.
