MFOS Soundlab Mark II, the unique analog mono synth by synth guru Ray Wilson is back in a revision version in limited quantities made by Elettrorama
Bob Moog, Dave Smith, Tom Oberheim, Don Buchla… are the most famous developers in the world of synth developers. However, one should not forget Ray Wilson, who created in the past unique synths that had a very special design and sound including the MFO Soundlab Mark II.
The Elettrorama version is a revision of the original design and offers a new silver interface. The synth engine is the same: 2 VCOs, 1 filter, 2 envelopes, 2 LFOs and a patch panel with connections for CV, gate and more. Attention, it doesn’t offer MIDI.
The Sound Lab Mini-Synth Mark II is a great unit for gigs and/or for the studio and you’ll never grow tired of the myriad of sounds the unit can produce. Make your music, soundscapes and/or movie soundtracks stand out with authentic vintage analog synth sounds. Put a Sound Lab Mini-Synth Mark II to work for you today.
