MOD Devices Presents MOD Duo X - New Standalone Multi-Effect Audio Processor

The upcoming MOD Duo X was designed to meet the needs of studio users and electronic music artists.

Marking its fourth consecutive year at Sonar+D in Barcelona, MOD Devices presents a powerful new version of its MOD Duo audio processor. Named MOD Duo X, the standalone device sports more controls on the outside, including 8 new assignable potentiometer knobs, 4 freely-assignable push buttons and 2 instant "snapshot" push buttons. The Duo X also comes with Control Voltage input and output, a buffed up new processor, as well as new software features such as MIDI Slave Sync and Stereo Link.

With its fully-assignable knobs and push buttons, including instant recall capabilities, the MOD Duo X is geared towards hands-on use cases such as studio work, electronic music production & performance and even DJing.

“When I was first introduced to the MOD Duo, I immediately envisioned a product line rather than one singular design. In the same way that the regular Duo is optimized for the guitar player, the Duo X is tailored for studio use and the needs of electronic music production and live acts. It also integrates well with a modular Eurorack setup, courtesy of its CV input and output. The Duo X is a product I would have dreamed of having in my music-making days. I am incredibly excited that we will bring this wonderful multi-effects processor to the world soon” says Ronny Krieger, MOD Devices’ CEO.

Users and the press have the opportunity to try a prototype of the MOD Duo X and other products from MOD Devices at the Sónar+D MarketLab, between June 13th and 16th 2018 in Barcelona.

On June 13th, pre-orders will open for a limited edition run of the Duo X, which will be shipped late September. The product will then be made officially available through international distribution and retail partners in late Q4 2018 or early Q1 2019. The feature set of both versions will be identical.

The new features of the MOD Duo X include:
  • Standalone NXP i.MX8M Quad core ARM Cortex-A53, 1.5GHz audio processor
  • Commutable analog control inputs - 2 x Control Voltage / Expression Pedal
  • Commutable outputs - 2 x Control Voltage / Headphone
  • 2 freely-assignable rotary encoders (control a virtually infinite amount of plugin parameters through push-button assignments)
  • 8 freely-assignable potentiometers
  • 4 freely-assignable push-buttons
  • Controller pagination system for multiple controlling scenarios
  • 2 instant "snapshot" push-buttons for easy setting recall and alternation
  • MIDI Sync (Ableton Link compatible) in master and slave mode
  • Max compatible (any gen~ based Max tool will run on the Duo)

Like the regular Duo stompbox, the MOD Duo X audio processor is made in Germany. It measures 180mm x 60mm x 160mm (W x H x D) and weighs 1.3 kg.

The limited edition of the Duo X will be available for 699,- Euro and pre-orders can be made at: Home.

MOD Devices Presents Full Demo of MOD Duo X Limited Edition at SUPERBOOTH19

MOD’s new audio processor will start shipping right after the exhibition, where the company will do a showcase of its unique features for the first time.

For the second consecutive year, Berlin-based music-tech company MOD Devices will be exhibiting its latest hardware and software releases at Superbooth. To kick-off the shipment of the much-awaited limited edition of the Duo X, the company will be doing a full demonstration for the first time since announcing its most ambitious project to date. MOD returns to Superbooth, as a great yearly opportunity to engage with a more electronic music-focused community:

“As we have been working hard this past couple of years towards expanding our horizons to the electronic-music gear market, Superbooth always appears as the perfect environment for us to assess true ‘gear-head’s’ responses to our products, as well as having the chance to exhibit amongst other amazing companies who shape the future of the music-gear market. We couldn’t wish for a better place to fully unveil the Duo X before letting it loose into the wild.” Jesse Verhage, MOD Product Specialist.

Amongst a variety of unique features, the newest audio processor by MOD comes with internal CV support, facilitated by a variety of new CV utilities, such as MIDI-to-CV, Audio-to-CV, and CV Clock. Additionally, a collection of bread-and-butter CV modules (VCO, LFO, VCF, etc.) allows users to design their own “synth in a box”, a particularly appealing possibility for electronic musicians.

To highlight its versatility as a standalone device in the context of electronic music production and performance, two differently built setups with their own variety of gear will be operated by Jesse Verhage and Jesse Siminski a.k.a Heartthrob, electronic music producer and DJ. Several demonstrations will be taking place throughout the three exhibition days.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to come and try out the Duo X alongside some of MOD’s latest plugin releases, such as the ValveCaster, a distortion plugin inspired by a famous DIY guitar pedal schematic, or the Phantom Zone, a dimension chorus capable of providing an almost 3D sound.

Rumour has it, curious visitors will also be able to have a little sneak peek at the recently announced MOD Expression pedal for the very first time.

Come and check out the MOD Duo X and other curiosities at booth W427 at SUPERBOOTH19, between May 9th and 11th.
