Superbooth 2018: Hands-On With Moffenzeef Modular Stargazer Drone Synth
Hollin Jones on Fri, May 4th | 0 comments
This standalone synth from Moffenzeef might look heavenly but the sounds it makes are pure evil. If drones are your thing you'll want to check out the Stargazer drone synth.

Moffenzeef makes some unique modular and standalone synthesizers and its latest is Stargazer, a drone synth with a dual wavetable oscillator and 90 arbitrary waveforms. Priced at $525 it's available to order via the website, though you might have to go on a waiting list at present. Check out the video below to see and hear what this abrasive beast can do. 

"STARGAZER is one beast of a drone machine: dual wavetable oscillator with ninety arbitrary waveforms, two resonant lowpass filters, three wavetable LFo's, sample rate reduction, bit rate reduction, amplitude modulation, and CMoS distortion. The expression pedal input can be used to control the speed of all three LFos at the same time which free up your hands to control other aspects of the drone. This compact robust instrument is housed in a rugged sheet metal enclosure. STARGAZER can handle the abuse it will inevitably take at gigs and is road ready for whatever horrible treatment lies ahead. Stare into the sky mouth agape while shredding parallel dimensions with this hypnotic vomitron."
