Synthesizers.com, a company best known for high-end 5U modular Synthesizer products announced a new portable system. The TB22 – Thought Box 22-Space Synthesizer system is a high-end Synthesizer that includes three oscillators, a Q960 Moog-style sequencer and a big amount of different individual modules. Per example, you find here the Q107A filter, a complete MIDI & CV interface and more. All this is packed in a nice designed portable case that allows you to close the case without removing the cables. Certainly not a product for the big crowd but certainly worth considering for synth lovers.
The Thought Box TB22++ is a 22-space synthesizer with 3 oscillators, a Q960 Moog-style sequencer, and an incredible array of modules in a rugged, fold-able cabinet. The folding cabinet is built like a tank and includes cable storage and a fold-out cable holder. TB22++ includes a power supply and a generous complement of color-coded, low-profile patch cables. Yes, you can close the system without removing your patch.
TB22++’s folding enclosure offers a brushed-aluminium handle. Turn the sleeves on the ends of the handle to unlatch and unfold the system in one easy step. At the bottom of the enclosure is a channel holding the power supply along with storage for the patch cables. The channel’s cover unfolds into a cable holder. Module functions include: MIDI converter, arpeggiator, slew-limiter/portamento, three oscillators each with EG and VCA, gate math, sample & hold, noise with low-pass filter, sine/square LFO, dual envelope generator, state variable filter with VC resonance, 4-channel mixer with signal processing, VCA with panning, tuner and headphone amplifier, 8×16 step sequencer with trigger I/O, sequential switch, 3-channel quantizer.
