Walrus Audio Launches the M1 High-Fidelity Modulation Machine

Walrus Audio Launches the M1 High-Fidelity Modulation Machine

Walrus Audio expands its Mako Series with a modulation circuit that features six customized, studio-quality programs.


Each program has a torrent of options to tune, tweak, customize, and save to one of nine onboard presets (128 presets available via MIDI). Underneath the lush, pristine, and high-fidelity sounds, The M1 contains a wide array of options to degrade, warp and space out your modulation with the Lo-Fi knob. Add subtle movement and texture to float under your playing or make a statement with a thick swirling chorus and choppy panning tremolo.

Inspired by the analog modulation circuits of old, the M1’s digital deluge of sound invites players to enter the Mako-Verse to craft moving, melodic sagas. A sound explorers delight, the M1 offers a palette of infinite aural possibilities. The enclosure’s exact size is 4.9” x 2.52” x 2.64”. Power requirements are 9VDC (300mA minimum).
