Moog have revealed a new vocoder and spectral modulator hardware unit called the Spectravox. Available exclusively to Moogfest Engineer Pass holders, the new hardware is inspired by speech synthesis and is based around 10-band spectral analysis and synthesis section with "new twists" and extra features.
There's the now familiar Eurorack friendly patch points for modulation as well as 10 faders to control each band of a single oscillator.
It's not the first time Moog have introduced a new piece of hardware at Moogfest, some of which went on to get full releases. They also recently introduced the Matriarch, a 49-key semi-modular mono synth, which will set you back $1,999.
