Moog Spectravox

Spectravox joins Moog’s esteemed semi-modular family as a groundbreaking tool for auditory exploration. At its core, a visionary 10-band filter bank, paired with a robust analog Moog oscillator and a dynamic white noise generator, forms the backbone of this versatile spectral processor. Spectravox is not just an instrument; it’s a portal into uncharted sonic realms, offering lively drones and colourful tonal sweeps that breathe life into any sound composition.

In 60HP format, Spectravox excels both as a standalone synthesizer and an integrative component in expansive Eurorack setups, providing unparalleled control over tonal shaping and spectral movement. With its dual-mode functionality, it is able to transform from a powerful synthesizer voice into a fully-featured 10-band vocoder. The integrated secondary filter bank meticulously analyzes the spectral makeup of incoming sounds, allowing users to imprint the timbral characteristics of external sources onto the Spectravox’s rich analog tones.

The combo XLR/jack program input ensures that whether you’re hooking up a microphone or integrating other sound modules, Spectravox adapts seamlessly, enhancing its surroundings with resonant depth and psychedelic spectral movements.
