Reon unveils Muton, New synth with Flexible Advanced Multiplier engine

The Driftbox developer returns with an intriguing instrument. Japanese developer Reon has unveiled the Muton, a semi-modular synth. This features a sound source based on its Driftbox hardware.

It is the second synthesizer in the Fusion series after Cistron. There are three analogue oscillators with oscillator sync, and also a random signal generator. And there’s also a filter, an envelope generator and a delay here, all of which are assignable.

Muton dressed as FAM. The big enhancement appears to be – It is powered by the all-new REON’s original Flexible Advanced Multiplier (FAM) engine, which provides modulation via three gate generators and three LFO generators. These can all be tempo-synced, and by assigning functions to the six buttons you can use the FAM as a performance tool.

Controllers and sound sources can be patched in the patchbay, while rear panel connectivity includes main outputs, oscillator outputs and MIDI.

Designed for creating everything from ambient sounds to “music with a strong sense of phrase,”

Muton is now available in Japan for ¥97,900 which is equivalent to around $679/€685. Whether Muton will  get a worldwide release remains to be seen. Find out more on the Reon website.
