The Malekko Manther is a full featured, tabletop monosynth with an analog signal path, an advanced 64-step digital sequencer and onboard delay. The heart of this beast is a coveted CEM 3340 based VCO IC chip. The analog filter is based on an ssm2044 chip. The Source Mixer allows for total control over the Square, Triangle, Saw, Tri Shape, Noise and Sub levels and waveforms also include individual outputs. Dial everything from heavy basslines to screaming leads to stomping kicks. Manther growls like no other.
Each step of the sequencer can be automated across all main features and all automation saved within a total of 64 presets. This allows for recall of intricate sound sculpting and numerous animated creations. Easily build songs by simply selecting presets to play in any order. Program notes quickly using the keyboard. Utilize the Repeat and Probability functions per step for a unique and inspiring approach to gate pattern formation. Even route the LFO to modulate the Delay time.
The intuitive menu offers additional control and setup of the more complex features: Sub Semitones, ADSR envelope (linear or exponential), Sequence direction (FWD, REVERSE, PENDULUM and RANDOM), Sequence division and multiplication, LFO phase, additional Delay features, Clock settings and more.
INS and OUTS include: CV, MIDI, CLOCK, GATE and LFO and pairs brilliantly with Eurorack.

Just sold my original 1983 SH-101 and had horrible sellers remorse. Looked for a replacement. Tried the new Roland module and it was very good. Tried the BS-101 from Mehringer, and passed. Can't believe I missed this unit. It's simply stunning. Fantastic sound and so very close to the SH-101I'm totally down. BUT it's sound goes so much further. A delight to play with and make funky loops and cool rhythms. It stores patches with it's sequences (or visaversa) but that means real analog SHish sound with presets and no computer needed. It's really like a super turbo MC-202 with a simple ti use yet insanely powerful sequencer that you can get lost in for hours making cool useful sounds and sequences. Great build, solid sound across the board, built in delay, crazy mod capabilities with the sequencer that can record live edits, and it's super simple to just make music on. I'll have this piece on my "To the grave with me" list. Congrats Malekko crew. You paid tribute and pushed forward with a perfect balance.
Malekko has managed to offer something unique and fun to play in a growing sea of synth options. It would get 5 stars from me except for a couple issues: it was rushed to market with numerous problems that have been slowly getting addressed via firmware updates. They are making progress so if you waited until now to get one you made a good choice. They have yet to address the jumps in frequency when opening the filter with the slider but promise to do so in September 2019. The pluses are numerous. Fantastic sound with deep wave-shaping possibilities, motion recording, excellent sequencer and delay, 64 preset locations, and integratable with your eurorack setup. This is a special synth and with the firmware updates I think it’ll be a classic. A definite buy for me!
