Equinox Synth ADSR Analogue Attack Decay Sustain & Release Module
Cat: 802084 Rel: 15 Dec 20
 
Analogue attack decay sustain & release module
Notes: The ADSR Envelope Generator's primary role in the modular synthesiser is to take a Gate input and generate dynamic control voltages which change over time. The Gate is usually provided by a sequencer or keyboard, when a key is pressed the gate goes high, which the key is released the gate goes low. The code within the module translates this gate signal to the various stages of the control envelope: Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release. This control voltage out can then be patched into a VCA to control volume, VCF to control frequency cutoff or VCO to control other modulation parameters such as FM or PWM.

Linear vs Exponential

The human ear hears both volume and pitch exponentially, so having exponential control over these elements is crucial. It's usual to drive a VCA with an ADSR, however only one of these should be exponential.

Linear ADSR vs Linear VCA: No exponential control.
Expo ADSR vs Linear VCA: Good exponential control.
Linear ADSR vs Expo VCA: Good exponential control.
Expo ADSR vs Expo VCA: Too much exponential control.

The Equinox VCA and VCF are exponential, the VCO has both exponential and linear control.

Equinox Synth LFO Smart Digital Low Frequency Oscillation Module
Cat: 802087 Rel: 15 Dec 20
 
Digital low frequency oscillation module
Notes: The Equinox LFO provides control over the Rate, Depth and Offset, and has two waveforms: sine and square. These can be patched into all modules which have a control voltage input, giving access to a huge range of synthesis techniques such as FM and PWM. The depth control sets the amplitude of the signal, from 5VP right down to a DC level. The offset control moves the signal either up towards +5V or down towards -5V. The module is smart enough to know when the depth is maximum, there's no room for the offset to move, but when the depth is at it's minimum, i.e. DC, the offset can move that level anywhere between +5V and -5V. A sync input is also provided, resetting the waveform so it can be synced with sequencers or other modulation sources within the modular synthesiser.

Equinox Synth VCA Analogue Voltage Controlled Amplifier Module
Cat: 802082 Rel: 15 Dec 20
 
Analogue voltage controlled amplifier module
Notes: The VCA is all about controlling the volume of the signal, both attenuation and a bit of amplification. All without distorting the signal. The Equinox VCA is based on the very high performance THAT Corp 2181 Blackmer trimmable VCA ICs, often found in top end studio hardware. We have kept component count to a minimum to ensure the audio signal path is kept as clean as possible.

The two controls on the Equinox VCA are for overall volume and the CV Depth. The CV input controls how much the signal is attenuated or amplified, this would usually be controlled by an envelope generator, such as the Equinox ADSR. This gives the artist control over how the amplitude or volume of a sound evolves over time. From hard hitting kicks to gently evolving pads, the VCA is the primary module for precise volume control within the modular synthesiser.

Equinox Synth VCF Analogue Voltage Controlled Filter Module
Cat: 802077 Rel: 15 Dec 20
 
Analogue voltage controlled filter module
Notes: The VCF is possibly one of the most important modules within a modular synthesiser. The Equinox VCF was designed with two classic instruments in mind: the SH-101 and the TB-303, both possessing key sonic elements in electronic music culture. Combined with the VCO, the Equinox VCF provides an incredibly rich palette of squelches and squeals, from throbbing basslines through to mix cutting leads. With two VCOs connected to the two mixed inputs, this module can produce the fattest of sounds.

The main role of the Low Pass Filter in subtractive synthesis is to remove higher harmonics from a waveform, altering the sound into new timbres. Filtering all harmonics from a waveform will result in just a sine wave oscillating at the fundamental frequency, great for hard punching kick drums. An alternative method for producing sine waves is to crank the Resonance control to maximum, causing the filter to go into self oscillation. The pitch of this very pure sine wave can now be controlled either via the Cutoff knob or the CV In.
