Notes: The EMW MULTI LFO-NOISE is another very interesting module: it has a selection of 8 waveforms, including noise, in order to maximize the modulation capabilities of your modular synthesizer setup. When used in conjunction with another LFO (via a DC mixer), the resulting waves can be very varied and random.
Notes: The EMW POT ACTION RECORDER is a very useful module that allows the user to create personalized modulation waveforms. It records the user's action on a potentiometer and generates 5V (-2.5 to +2.5V) control voltages that mimics the action applied to the potentiometer. The action recording can occur at any point and it is incorporated to the voltage output instantaneously. The playback speed can also be slowed down or increased.
Notes: The EMW LFO 3X TRI was designed to be used independently or in conjunction to generate complex modulations when its outputs are mixed together thru a DC Mixer. The three LFOs have slightly different frequency ranges in order to maximize its usage and fit perfectly in any modulation scheme that uses Low Frequency Oscillators.
Notes: The EMW Boozy VCF is a specially designed 6dB/oct voltage controlled filter with an unique and interesting sound. It was not designed to replace any standard VCF module but it's ideal to create more sound variations in a modular system.

Notes: VCA 3X is a simple yet great solution for synth users looking to add more VCAs to their setup in a single and compact module. This module features 3 VCAs with individual Signal and CV inputs and outputs.
Notes: You can never have enough modulation sources so that's why EMW created the AR 3X: a versatile module that can produce up to three independent linear Attack-Release envelopes. Each envelope generator has its own Attack and Release controls and a LED indication that lights according to the envelope intensity. Like all EMW modules, the AR 3X works with 2.5 to 15V Gates or Triggers signals.
Notes: The EMW LFO 2X has two totally independent LFOs in only 6HP rack space. Both LFOs feature triangle and square wave outputs, a switch to control the frequency range (Fast/Slow), frequency adjust knobs and LED indication. LFOs are essential tools when working with modular systems since they are the kind of modules that can be used in every patch to modulate parameters of other modules.
Notes: The EMW Fixed Filter Bank adds color and different shades into the sounds. It contains 8 bandpass filters used to attenuate or accentuate frequencies throughout the audio range.This module can easily modify the waveforms produced by an oscillator, creating very interesting and dynamic variations. When the controls are djusted to accentuate the frequency range, resonances are produced, resulting in very unique sounds. This is an essential module to achieve more flexibility and exclusive timbres with your modular setup.
Notes: The EMW MIDI Oscillator is a digital oscillator based on the EMW WCS-1 synthesizer. It responds directly to MIDI signals (C1 to C6) and generates 3 waveforms: Sawtooth, Square, and Sub-oscillator.The sub-oscillator waveform is not a simple square wave. it has it's own unique shape and sound characteristic, ideally designed to be mixed with the another waveforms.
Notes: The EMW 3-CH MULTI BAND-PASS FILTER is a filter specially designed to alter the sound of waveforms, giving them an alternative coloration and adding movement to the sound. The module has three parallel resonant band-pass filters with independent frequency modulation capabilities. The 3 modulat ion inputs (with dedicated attenuators) can be used to add a lot of movement to your patch. The Multi BP Filter is great filter for creating formant sounding patches.
Notes: The MULTIWAVE DIGITAL OSCILLATOR is a MIDI controlled oscillator with 40 waveforms in the main osc. section + 8 sub-osc. waveforms. It uses a multi-algorithm structure to produce very dynamic waveforms, with CV control over many key parameters. Spreaded over the 40 internal waves there are synthesis methods like wavetable modulation, FM, wave distortion, formant shifting, timbre stretching and windowed sync. This allows the module to create a large timbral palette.
Notes: The EMW S&H is a very complete module that features an exclusive EMW design which incorporates a wide range oscillator (that controls a Sample & Hold circuitry) and an internal LFO oscillator with 2 waveforms. It also has an analog noise generator and Gate and Trigger outputs. It can be controlled by either the internal clock or any external oscillator / LFO.
Notes: The EML-200 recreation is an old idea that has been in the works for 12 years, and several approaches and circuits have been tested during this time. The first attempt was to create a similar synth that resembles the 200 but with several different modules and circuits.
In 2011, with the growth of the EMW initiative and a few years without focusing on the project, it was embraced again, but now with no more surprises.
The raw and powerful vibration that represents the heart and the root of the analog sound, particualrly from the EML-200 and EML-300, was a key inspiration when creating the EMW-200 and EMW-300.
Notes: The EMW MIX SEQUENCER was created based on a module from the old ARP 2500 modular synthesizer. It works with CV or audio and switches these signals in several patterns and modes. You can use any signal in its inputs and create unusual rhythmic sequences. Each input can be switched on and off manually by a per channel switch and each input has its independent level adjustment. An external clock input is available in order to allow for external synchronization.

Notes: The EMW AUDIO SWITCH 202 module is an audio frequency switch that selects which input will be routed to it's output based on the voltage of the CLOCK signal. A CLOCK signal lower than 2.5V will select Input A while a CLOCK signal higher than 2.5V will select Input B.When using the Audio Switch 202, you have the option to either use it's internal clock (which can be controller using the Frequency and A/B Time knobs) or patch an external clock signal into the CLOCK input jack.
Notes: Patch (multiples) module that can assign the incoming signal to buss number 1 or to buss number 2. All channels which have the switch in the same position shares the same signal, so you can create your groups and configure the multiples as you wish.
