Bask in the gløry øf the days øf yøre…when mødems and dial-up tønes reigned supreme. That gød awful søund emitted as yøu tried with all øf yøur might tø ping a cømmunicatiøn acrøss the gløbe…that søund…is precisely what we have harnessed and packaged intø a percussiøn vøice før the mødern day cyber junkie.
DIAL-UP! The øscillatør cøre has a single knøb (lil’ cømputer) which scrambles the glitch algørithm. Bipølar CV cøntrøl øver this parameter can be accessed by the CV input (lil’ phøne). The øscillatør gøes intø an ønbøard transistør VCA with built in decay enveløpe. Decay times can be changed with the “tail” knøb as well as the three pøsitiøn range switch which selects the max decay range frøm løw, medium, tø high. The BANG! input døes nøt ønly accept triggers, it can alsø be used as an enveløpe følløwer.
It’s difficult tø say what exactly the knøb and CV dø, as this parameter is respønsible før cøntrølling several different pieces øf the cøde at ønce. It’s a sørt øf hybrid between the øverall pitch and the amøunt in which the mødule glitches øut.

The Atlantis is heavily inspired by the architecture and sound of the classic Roland SH-101. It has always been one of our favorite synths and we really liked how the seemingly limited architecture allowed for all sorts of creative and musically useful sounds to be easily generated. Just like the 101, it is quick to dial in a beautifully rich bass and lead sounds but there is much more sonic territory to explore as well.
Modulation VCO: triangle core with Hard Sync and Link switch to connect pitch to primary
Primary VCO: triangle core with Hard Sync, Octave switches, Linear/Exp FM and PWM
Global modulation bus with four VCO waveforms, noise and S&H options
Cascaded 4-Pole multimode filter
Looping ADSR with range switch, manual gate, and external level (velocity) control.
Three position output clipping circuit
27 jacks for creative and complex patching options
The SWAMP is a random CV and audio generator inspired by the famous Wiard Wogglebug module; it’s often the heart of self-generating patches and brings controllable randomness to your modular system.
In the SWAMP module we introduced numerous modifications and improvements to extend potentiometer range, added an audio input, which, when connected, replaces the internal Tone oscillator, replaced the expensive dual vactrol, built S&H circuit around the made in Riga S&H IC AS1100CK2, added audio waveform selection switches, CV output configuration jumpers and much more.
Three random audio frequency outputs
External audio input routed to ring modulator
Three random CV outputs
Clock input and output to sync the module to your modular system
CV control over internal clock for even more extreme randomness
Polivoks VCF is famous for its’ crazy resonance sweeps and deep, bassy sound which makes it ideal for acid basslines.
We believe, this is one of most is one of most authentic sounding famous Russian synth Polivoks VCF emulations available. The original Russian ICs K140UD12 are used in the sound circuit. We did several updates to adapt the VCF for contemporary modular synth demands. Independently buffered inputs, extended Cutoff knob range, eliminated clicks, when switching filter modes, and output stage added to eliminate signal inversion.
The beating heart(s) of your rack, the analog oscillator. If the Dixie2‘s six waveform outputs don’t offer enough shapes for you, the PWM, sync, and FM inputs have you covered. Unique to the Dixie2+ is PWM control, exponential FM, and an Octave switch for quick asnd precise musical tuning. Great in pairs, two hearts are better than one.
