TB22++ Thought Box 22-Space Synthesizer System

return to Box11 systemsReturn to Box Systems

The Thought Box TB22++ is a 22-space synthesizer with 3 oscillators, a Q960 Moog-style sequencer, and an incredible array of modules in a rugged, fold-able cabinet. The folding cabinet is built like a tank and includes cable storage and a fold-out cable holder. TB22++ includes a power supply and a generous complement of color-coded, low-profile patch cables. Yes, you can close the system without removing your patch.

Thought Box TB22 Synthesizer

TB22++'s folding enclosure offers a brushed-aluminium handle. Turn the sleeves on the ends of the handle to unlatch and unfold the system in one easy step.

At the bottom of the enclosure is a channel holding the power supply along with storage for the patch cables. The channel's cover unfolds into a cable holder.

Module functions include: MIDI converter, arpeggiator, slew-limiter/portamento, three oscillators each with EG and VCA, gate math, sample & hold, noise with low-pass filter, sine/square LFO, dual envelope generator, state variable filter with VC resonance, 4-channel mixer with signal processing, VCA with panning, tuner and headphone amplifier, 8x16 step sequencer with trigger I/O, sequential switch, 3-channel quantizer.

Use TB22++ with any MIDI source such as a MIDI keyboard or a computer, or play it with the controls.

The two Box11 cabinets provide 4 groups of multiples and the Q175A module provides multiples for pitch and gate.

Folding enclosure with rugged hardware and a built-in power system. Goes anywhere.

Low-profile, color-coded patch cables included. See more about these.

The TB22++ is a Moog-Unit (MU) format synthesizer using 1/4" patch cables (included).

TB22++ provides one blank space. Here are just a few optional modules that could go there.

Q172 Quantizer Aid

Q172 Quantizer Aid

The Q172 is an Aid module for the Q171 Quantizer module. It adds a 4th channel along with MIDI output. See the Q172 web page.

Q179 EG++ Envelope/Sequencer

Q179 EG++

The Q179 EG++ provides a single fancy envelope or two less-fancy envelopes. It can also act as a 4-step sequencer with quantizer. See the Q179 web page.

Q167 LFO++ Low Frequency Oscillator Module

Q167 LFO++ Oscillator

TB22++ contains three Q167 LFO++ modules and adding a fourth can be a healthy option. Each Q167 is a combination LFO, Audio Oscillator, envelope generator, and VCO all in one. See the Q167 web page.

  • MP Wrote: I can't state enough how impressive this system is. I was lost in the simple patch there (yeup, straight 2 OSC synth!) for hours last night. I should point out that though I've had a lot of gear, I've never touched a DotCom system before now. I was totally impressed at the tone and ballz out of the Q107/QA130/Q108 path.
