MFB Kraftzwerg Semi Modular Boutique Synth

via this auction
37 patch connectors
integrated MIDI/CV-interface
'MFB Kraftzwerg' is the semi-modular version of MFB's 'Synth-II'. It trades off memory locations and MIDI-control for 37 patch connectors which allow breaking and modifying of the internal routing. Put single Kraftzwerg components under analog sequencer control or let the whole unit interact with your existing modular synthesizer system. 'Kraftzwerg' works as a stand-alone synthesizer without the need to patch any cable. The classic formation of VCO-VCF-VCA is pre-wired internally, complete with essential modulations. Therefore, you can play the Kraftzwerg just like any other synthesizer using its MIDI-input. In addition, it may integrate into a full analog environment using control voltages and benefit, unlike MIDI, from infinite continuous parameter resolution. 'MFB Kraftzwerg' offers a complete set for powerful and versatile synthesis: three VCOs with hard-sync, 24-dB-lowpass-filter with resonance, noise generator, ring-modulator, two envelope-generators, two LFOs and VCA. Technically and soundwise 'MFB Kraftzwerg' is identical to MFB's euro-rack-modules."
