In surprise news, an announcement from a newly revived muSonics claims that they have “acquired” STG Soundlabs and shipping a new, revised 902 VCA Module. Is everything as it seems?

Phoenix From The Flames

News filtering out of Chillicothe, Illinois last night revealed a surprise comeback of a once familiar name in the world of modular synthesis. muSonics, for those that don’t know, were a short-lived synthesizer manufacturer that bought up R.A. Moog and eventually rebranded as Moog Music in 1970. Their most well known synth was the muSonics Sonic V which turned into the Moog Sonic 6 shortly after the merger.

If the press release is to be believed, muSonics has risen from the ashes (or dumpster, in this case). In doing so, they have acquired STG Soundlabs, the Illinois-based manufacturer of hugely innovative and spectacular sounding Eurorack modules and semi modular synths. STG Soundlabs is (or was) owned by Suit & Tie Guy who is also responsible for the marvellous annual gathering of synth nerds that is Knobcon. The first product of this newly formed company is a revised 902 VCA module in traditional Moog format size.

The STG muSonics 902 VCA Revision

Updates and improvements to the muSonics STG Soundlabs 902 VCA Module include 15 volt power support, selectable AC coupling, and a new shallow profile of less than 2 inches behind the front panel. This new revision fixes an error in previous revisions where positive and negative outputs were flipped upside down. Phase is now coherent from upper input to upper output, and lower input to lower output. Units are available to order now via Noisebug for $275.00 USD. The unit debuted at Knobcon ’22.

All May Not Be As It Seems

In all seriousness, this is a genius piece of marketing on Suit & Tie Guy’s part. The press release is dripping in sarcasm and insider jokes. It makes for a fun read! Lines such as “muSonics will be moving from their current office, a vintage dumpster located behind the Wegman’s grocery store in Williamsville, New York, to downtown Chillicothe, Illinois, making it possibly the only company moving to the state this year” will have you chuckling over your corn flakes.

Well played, Suit. Well played!
