|FS(US/WW): Mark Steiner Wobble Wagon Prototype full set- $245
Price includes the fully functioning Wobble Wagon 1st Prototype, a QuNexus, and an Akai LPK25. Includes shipping in the US and paypal fees.
This is a really strange and expressive instrument which let's you send excellent natural human CV vibrato/shakes/dives/bends while playing a variety of keyboard types. And it's nicely ridiculous because you are kind of driving a car to make sensitive music. (!)
Vibrato is TRS CV output that acts just as a Moog/similar type of CV pedal. Meaning it does need 5v supplied to it with a pedal input module or a Moog CP-251. (And any DIY guy could get the 5v there easily from the modular supply or an iPhone cube wall plug.)
Designed and made it myself with hours of love and tons of trial and error and it responds very nicely.
It's works amazingly well with the QuNexus key pressure. I actually developed it after finding the vibrato pad and tilt on the QuNexus to be very unpredictable and hard to control musically (but the pressure is wonderful!).
Many small keyboards fit on it as well, but I am selling it as a set and the price includes a QuNexus and an Akai LPK 25, both in great condition/fully functional.
I love playing it most with the QuNexus, but the Akai is more accurate for fast notes and just a different playing type(plus has a killer arpeggator). The QuNexus with this lends to wind instrument expression types, including rapid/multiple tonguing styles with fingers... nothing else does this that I've found.
What I love most is that it does make a significant difference in expression/musicality while looking completely ridiculous in a great way. So awesome for live... a crazy eye catcher with true usefulness.
So have a look and you can buy this one of a kind and own a small piece of synth history (so small that almost no one knows about it). And I think the set is at a very reasonable price.
These videos are of varying stages of creation but show well what it does to the sound. It's now bound on the track, which lends best to pitch re-centering. They are all using CV direct to modular patches.
One video playing the Akai on the Wagon with violin type expression and then another with the QuNexus on the Wagon doing wind-type expression (with hands only... no breath control). 1st video uses a breath controller (not included) to open the filters. Pitch is from the Wobble Wagon.
