Dreadbox Nymphes

On their Instagram they had a vote for what color it will be. They are hinting NY in the name. What do you guys think? Up for a Dreadbox poly anyone?

Sounds good ! I've been hoping and expecting for a poly from these guys for years.

Oh, interesting. Looks like dark blue has won over black. Maybe I should hold back from buying a Polybrute or Rev 2 now. If it's a keyboard, it has my highest interest.

Yes, I've always wanted to see a keyboard synth from them. The price for that might be higher though, with their still mainly thru-hole and locally assembled production, but may very well be worth it.

I thought they switched everything over to SMD?

I think they said they're only using SMD for control surfaces - according to a video of theirs a while back, the sound engine inside is still thru-hole.

Interesting. I’ll definitely keep an eye out. I’m pretty set, but it’s always fun to see what’s on the horizon.

I personally would like a module, and if it is priced ok and does not take up to much space on my desk, I'd be really happy as I love the sound of their oscillators and filters.

The Typhon seems to be a hit, so I'd expect that they go a similar route here, with the concept of modulators and the digital effects.

Nice news! Let's see how it evolves, let's remember that the Medusa turned into a completely different product from the early renderings.
It will be interesting to see if they keep an "old school" approach like their more traditional designs (Erebus and Nyx), or if they continue on the modern path of the Typhon with patch memory and a bigger digital part.

No keyboard for me. I wish they’d concentrate on analog features and less so on the digital ones. A more fully featured Abyss (2osc, more modulation possibilities) without the effects would be my wish- presets are fine either way.

I asked them if it would be more 6 voice Typhon poly or Abyss and they said Abyss. Don't know if that means no screen or what, but would assume its more traditional Dreadbox but without the Semi-modular like the Abyss.

The Dreadbox Abyss is not as semi-modular as the Nyx/Erebus but still has 4 CV inputs
for Filter/Delay/Phase/Reflect.
I only use the Filter CV which allows for Aftertouch of the filter, as I run both Abyss in mono 4 VCO mode.

The Abyss as a 4 VCO Mono is the secret sauce for me!

A 2 VCO/6 voice Abyss/Murmux VCO/filter would be wonderful!

A module always looked more likely from them, so it looks those of us who always wanted a keyboard from them might have to wait a very long time. A six-voice with some relationship to the Abyss sounds very interesting.

A poly typhon with more hands on control and a keybed would be a hit I think!

MFB have always done modules, before the Dominion 1, and what a masterpiece this turned out to be. Similar to MFB, I think Dreadbox could have 1 keyboard synth too, and why not this indeed. Ideal would be both, a module and a keyboard version. No matter what it will be, I'm really anticipating more updates on this.

Dreadbox is going to be at Knobcon. Hopefully they will bring whatever it is.

Exactly what I want to hear, though I would welcome it being semi modular.

They’ve often done multiple colour editions so I guess it might end up being both blue and black.

I think typhon has been successful so hopefully they continue with sinevibe digital fx too
I predict something Erebus size , £599
Or Medusa size without the grid.

Oh my.

I remember a while ago asking cheekily if they were ever going to release a multi-osc poly. Their response was essentially positive, but especially given Covid and such, I’ve simply sat on that hope ever since.

Anyway. Overjoyed that it’s happening!

How is it going to be $600-$800? They already said it was going to be more like the Abyss which was 1 osc 4 voice for like $1100 or $1200 if I remember correctly. I assume this is going to be 2 osc 6 voice and be closer to $1,500-$2,000ish even for a module.

The Nyx V2 is not on the discontinued list according to Dreadbox site. The Erebus V3 have been on sale on several stores, at least here in Finland, and they are now sold out.

I was always apprehensive of buying either the Nyx or Erebus
with the warnings of "do not connect outputs to outputs" or something similar.

(on an MS-20Kit, you can connect outputs to outputs, for example the Pink Noise to Triangle Out,
which is upstream from the filters, so also an input) (pretty sure all the ins/outs on an MS-20xx are buffered)

I would have been buying used the possibility of the prior owner doing this crossed my mind.

With two Abyss I think I have my Dreadbox covered for now.
(I use both as 4 VCO monos)

But a 6 voice 2 VCO Dreadbox would be quite interesting to add to the Dreadbox collection (although small)
As a poly it would probably have a small mod matrix on it for basic connectivity to the outside world.

Will wait and see...
