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.
The Dixie 2+ is a larger variant of the classic Dixie 2. Using the same great triangle core oscillator, it adds a number of features to make it even more versatile with only a modest increase in size. The Dixie 2+ makes a perfect primary oscillator for a modular system, or a great companion for the Rubicon 2.
8-position octave switch for quick setting of coarse tuning.
Fine tuning knob that converts into a coarse knob when in LFO mode.
Dual FM inputs, with FM1 attenuator and switch to select between exponential and linear mode.
Pulse width control with attenuator.
Reset to 0 V hard sync input, ideal for percussive sounds or modulation.
Flip sync circuit similar to but improved from the Dixie II.
6 waveform outputs: sine, triangle, zigzag, saw, pulse and suboctave.
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
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 core of the VCO is borrowed from famous Russian synth Polivoks VCO and in exponential converter we use the original matched transistor IC that was used in Polivoks. But there are significant updated schematics to have the most out of your modular setup.
