Motas Electronics released Motas-6

Motas Electronics released Motas-6, a powerful analogue synthesizer, with analogue + digital control and a super-flexible independent modulation architecture. Hand-built in the UK with high-grade components throughout, solid wood end-cheeks and an all-metal chassis including stainless steel panels and fixings.

Motas-6 is a monophonic synthesizer with three analogue voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs) with hard-sync options, phase-modulation and a sub-oscillator.

The oscillators, analogue noise source with pink/white output options and an external audio input feed into the pre-filter mixer. The oscillators are truely analogue and are definitely not DCOs.

Motas has very powerful filtering capabilities. There is a 6-pole voltage-controlled low-pass filter (VCF) with adjustable resonance to self-oscillation (with selectable 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6-pole outputs), a 2-pole high-pass voltage-controlled filter and a second 4-pole low-pass voltage-controlled filter (similar in design to a certain silver box from the 1980s..) with adjustable resonance to self-oscillation.


  • Purely analogue sound generation
  • 3 VCOs (mixable triangle, sawtooth, PWM/square waves, sub-oscillator, analogue phase modulation)
  • Noise source (white/pink)
  • External audio input
  • 3 VCFs (2 LPF with resonance, 1 HPF)
  • Flexible filter routing options
  • Lots of very high-resolution digital modulation sources (LFOs, EGs, MIDI controller, CV/gate input)
  • Analogue clipping distortion options
  • Save/load 100s of patches to internal memory
  • Oscilloscope and Spectrum-Analyser
  • MIDI/USB control
  • 4 CV/gate inputs
  • Arpeggiator
  • Pattern generator and sequencer
