Muro Box-N40 Chromatic MIDI Music Box Now Available to Pre-order

Muro Box Global has launched a Kickstarter project to fund production of the N40, a MIDI-compatible music box that has a built-in pickup and audio output.
The N40 builds on the original Muro Box, with expanded range to 40 chromatic notes and more. Two options are available:

  • The N40 Sublime edition is their flagship version. It features two sets of combs, detuned by 14 cents to create a chorus effect. It features a solid brass base and aged acacia case.
  • The N40 Standard design features a zinc alloy base and maple case.

Both the N40 Sublime and N40 Standard support Din 5 midi and USB-C MIDI control:

The developers market the N40 as both a high-end, programmable music box and as a MIDI-controllable instrument.

Here’s synthesist/instrument designer Christophe Duquesne demonstrating the N40 in a cinematic ‘Halloween style’ electro-acoustic performance, featuring the N40 music box paired with La Voile from La Voix du Luthier, an Eagan Matrix Module from Haken Audio and an Osmose from Expressive E.

A music-only example from Duquesne, demonstrating how MIDI control and the audio output make it easy to use the N40 for professional recording:

The N40 Music Box is being produced via a Kickstarter project, and it is available to backers starting at $972. The project has already met its funding goal. The smaller N20 is also available for $299, but with a smaller range and no MIDI control.

*Note: Crowdfunded projects can involve risk. See the project website for details.
