The Dominion X synthesizer combines analogue synthesis, programmability and modular patching. with advanced circuits, increased functionality and a new design, dominion x is the first of mfb's next generation musical instruments.
dominion x offers three oscillators for maximum flexibility. each waveform can be varied in symmetry. besides altering the pulse width of a rectangle, you may also continuously turn a saw tooth into a triangle and a triangle into a sine. all oscillators also offer ring modulation. in addition, vco 2 and vco 3 can be synced to vco1. finally, vco3 can modulate the frequency of vco 1 and vco 2. the analogue oscillator circuit is processor-controlled for stable tuning. to complete the available sound sources, noise or an external audio input can be added to the vcos in dominion x's mixer section.
the filter offers six operation modes. available are three low pass variations with 12, 18 and 24 db/oct. slopes. also available are high pass-, band pass and a notch filter with slopes of 12 db/oct. respectively 6 db/oct. variable filter modulations are possible via an invertible envelope, keyboard tracking, lfo, vco, different midi controllers as well as by the use o the cv-input.
the two adsr-type envelops are internally routed to the vcf- and vca-sections. in addition, envelope 1 can also modulate the vco section. lfos 1 and 2 offer six waveform shapes including sample & hold. they may be switched to one-shot-modes to emulation simple envelopes. a third sine-lfo works in combination with a keyboard's modulation wheel and can dynamically address the vco, vcf and vca sections.
modulations are assigned by the use of selector switches, located at the destinations. this allows easily setting and re-routing internal modulation paths – ideally for your live-performance.
to integrate external modulators, control- and audio sources, dominion x offers nine inputs. therefore, oscillators, filter, vca, cv/gate and mixer can be easily combined with other analogue synthesizers such as mfb's megazwerg, analogue sequencers such as mfb's urzwerg pro or modular synthesizer systems.
an additional selector switch allows assignment of velocity for up to eleven modulation destinations.
dominion x offers 128 programmable patches for your personal sound creations. to support sound programming without an attached keyboard, different demo sequences are available. to use dominion x as a filter box for external audio sources, the vca can be opened permanently. finally, there is an insert available to integrate an effect or distortion unit into the signal path.
dominion x has the following dimensions: 330 x 170 x 60 mm. an external power supply is included.
I think I've read somewhere that the Ebbe&Flut Schippman filter version isn't ready yet so the Dominion X to be released in autumn will have an MFB multi-mode filter instead...can anyone confirm if this is correct or not?
...a real analogue synth before, go and get one. My only problem is that I have extreme GAS for the MFB Dominion X, and am wondering what sort of crimes I can get away with, so-as to get both as close to immediately as possible. :synth::synth::synth::synth::synth: out of :synth::synth::synth::synth::synth: synths kfhkh
Things to add to the list: Eowave Magma and the old MFB Dominion X (SED), both hard to find. I almost decided to get the Roland SE-02, but then found out about the filter stepping - kinda defeats the purpose of using an analog synth :facepalm:. Now I'll have to check if the MFB Dominion...
