At first blush, the Anti-Oscillator appears as a standard voltage controlled oscillator, with volt per octave input, linear and exponential FM inputs (with attenuators), fine and coarse frequency controls, and dedicated triangle output. But then, there is the “MAYHEM” output!
Mayhem starts as a square wave and morphs into twisted, animated waveforms as the “Init Wave” control travels clockwise or is modulated. Not a standard waveshaper or wavefolder, Mayhem produces multiple, altogether new waveshapes in series as it is modulated. Sometimes creating an almost PWM “fat” sound, and other times creating very organic, metallic sounds as the Anti-Oscillator is modulated. The timbres generated by the Mayhem output are often eccentric and very rich in harmonics, perfect for a filter to “bite” into.
The waveshaper CV attenuator (Wave Env) is normalled to feed the triangle output in when no input is connected. The exponential and linear CV inputs are normalled to feed the Mayhem output into their respective CV input when no CV input is connected. When using the triangle output and with no CV input connected to the exponential input, for example, you can turn the the Exp control clockwise to progress through new wave shapes, starting with a triangle instead of a square for a smoother waveshaped output.
The Anti-Oscillator is know for its great FM response and capability to achieve fat and clangorous sounds. It pairs perfectly with the Wiard Oscillator for modulation, and the Borg and Boogie filters to shape and tame the Mayhem output!
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 Malekko/Richter Oscillator II is a great-sounding, solid analog Oscillator/LFO with some serious tricks up its sleeve. Fine and Coarse frequency controls are provided. Volt per octave and exponential (with attenuator) CV frequency inputs are provided. An output for each waveform is provided (Sine/Triangle/Square/Saw). A second series of outputs are provided for phase-modulated versions of the Triangle, Square, and Saw waveforms.
Control your drum modules and trigger events on your modular from any MIDI sequencer!
If you want to use a MIDI sequencer to trigger events on your modular synthesizer (e.g. using the hexinverter.net Mutant drums range or Tiptop Audio classical drum modules or envelope generators to control VCAs), Erica Synths MIDI to trigger module is just what you need; it converts ANY MIDI notes to eight 10ms Trigger signals. When designing the module, we put usability as priority; it will take you seconds to program the module. It works with any MIDI sequencer & controller so there is no need to change MIDI controller settings, instead, you reprogram the module.
