The MSW-810m was inspired by the mega-rare Roland CMU-810 monosynth and given a contemporary upgrade.
The MSW-810m was inspired by a very rare representative of the great Roland synthesizer family, the CMU-810 Compusynth! Originally intended as an expander for the CMU-800 Compu Music interface, it found its way into the studio as a supplier of clear but still warm and punchy sounds for artists like Mijk van Dijk, Modeselektor or Thomas P. Heckmann. The sound character is, contrary to all 101/202 rumors closer to the SH-09, which was enormously popular in the nineties, especially in the UK for its voluminous dubby bass sounds, insane PWM and the powerful-sounding
The original CEM3340-based circuit is realized in the MSW-810m through the use of an AS3340 IC and offers the freely mixable waveforms square, sawtooth, sub-OSC and noise. The filter uses the IR3019 circuit (using the AS3109-chip), which was first used in Jupiter 4 and subsequently also in Juno 6 and Juno 60, respectively, as well as Jupiter 6 and SH 101.
Overall, the layout of the lower row of controls of the MSW-810m resembles those of SH 101/MC-202 (LFO, VCA, ADSR), while the upper and rear sections offer some extras. Two additional sound sources can be blended into the output of the MSW-810m and feature a dedicated volume slider, while the VCA response can be switched between linear and exponential. Also, the rear connectivity has been extended with MIDI controllability over the controls present on the original (audio and CV I/O, VCO tuning).
