12dB multi-mode filter with unique classic circuitry, based on the filter from the 70s EDP Wasp synth
Notes: Module A-124 is a special 12dB multimode filter using the "strange" filter circuit of the "EDP Wasp" (an analog synthesizer with black/yellow case built end of the seventies, manufactured by the UK company "Electronic Dream Plant" with Chris Huggett und Adrian Wagner). This design "abuses" digital inverters as analog operational amplifiers leading to distortions and other "dirty" effects that generate the specific sound of this filter. The filter is equipped with a band pass output and a combined low/notch/high pass output. For this output a control knob defines the relation between low and high pass signal. If both signals appear at the same level (i.e. middle position of the Mix knob) one obtains a notch filter. Otherwise the low or high pass signal predominates. The module does not feature self-oscillation in contrast to most of the other filters of the A-100 system.

Inputs: Audio In, CV In (2x)
Outputs: Bandpass Out, Low/Highpass Mix-Out
Controls: Audio and CV attenuator, Frequency, Resonance, LP/HP Mix

The function and operation of this module is very similar to the module SEM VCF A-106-5. But the sound of both filters is very different! The only functional difference is the position of the sockets and controls, and the function of the controls CV2 (A-124: normal attenuator, A-106-5: polarizer).

Pair of multicore signal connectors
Notes: A-180-9 is another simple but useful tool. It can be used to connect up to 14 signals between different cases by means of standard network cables (RJ45). These cables are available all over world smoothly in different lengths and colours. From the factory two black network cables with 0.5 m length are enclosed.

The upper network connector is wired to the eight sockets 1-8, the lower to the six sockets A-F. That way it's possible to pre-patch different cases and connect signals, that are required in all cases (e.g. clock, start/stop, master CV) by means of one or two cables only instead of 14 individual patch cables. When only eight signals are required only the upper network connector is required and the sockets 1-8 are used. When more than eight signals have to be patched both network connectors have to be used. It's also possible to wire the upper and lower network to different cases (i.e. signals 1-8 to external case #1 and signals A-F to external case#2).

The module is fully passive (no power supply required) and simply wires the 14 sockets to 14 pins of the network connectors.

The A-180-9 comes in pairs for combining two modular systems.

Matrix mixer with 4 rows & 4 columns - 20HP
Notes: Module A-138m is a 4 x 4 matrix mixer with switches for unipolar/bipolar mode for each column. Unipolar means that the controls work as attenuators. Bipolar means that the controls work as polarizers. In this mode the amplification is zero in the middle position of the corresponding control. Turning the knob counter-clockwise from the centre position the signal is subtracted from the output sum with increasing amount (i.e. negative). Turning the knob clockwise from the centre position the signal is added to the output sum with increasing amount. The module is DC-coupled and can be used for both audio and control voltage mixing.

Dual ADSR envelope generator - 8HP
Notes: Module A-140-2 contains two ADSR type envelope generators behind a front panel with 8 HP only.

Each ADSR provides these controls and in/outputs:

- LED (displays the envelope output)
- A: manual Attack control
- D: manual Decay control
- S: manual Sustain control
- R: manual Release control
- Gate Input
- Retrigger Input
- CVT Input with attenuator (CVT = CV Time)
- Envelope Output 1
- Envelope Output 2

The output voltage range for each envelope is 0 - 10V. The time range of Attack/Decay/Release is about 1ms to 30s.

By means of internal jumpers one can select which time parameters are controlled by the CVT input (e.g. D only or D+R or A+D+R) and in which direction (i.e. if an increasing CVT shortens or stretches the time parameter in question).

Socket CVT can be normalled to an internal fixed voltage (i.e. the switching contact is connected to an internal fixed voltage). That way it's possible to change all time parameters simultaneously by means of the CVT control.

Another jumper is used to set output 2 to normal or inverted envelope.

And another jumper is used for the normalling of Gate 2 to Gate 1 (i.e. ADSR#2 is also triggered by Gate 1).

Two more jumpers are used for the optional bus access to the gate signal of the bus for each ADSR. Changing the positions of the mentioned jumpers allows to modify the factory settings.

Electronic switch with up to four steps - 4HP
Notes: Module A-151 (Quad Sequential Switch) is like an electronic four-position rotary switch.

It includes trigger and reset inputs, four in/outputs, and a common out/input. Each time a pulse is received at the trigger input socket, the common out/input is connected to the next in/output. After the fourth in/output, the next trigger makes it step back to the first again, and so on. A positive pulse at the reset input switches the out/input immediately back to the first in/output. Voltages in the range -8V...+8V at the O/I resp. I/O sockets can be processed by the module.

Four LED's indicate the active in/output (ie. the one that is connected to the out/input at any particular time).

Four-channel stereo mixer - 8HP
Notes: A-138s is a simple but useful 4-in-2 mixing tool. It has four inputs available. Each input is equipped with an attenuator (Level) and a panning control that is used to distribute the signal to the left and right output. Beyond stereo mixing it is equally suited to create variable parallel routings. For example: Any of the four inputs may be routed in variable intensity to feed two filters.

You may regard the A-138s as a smaller version of the A-138m Matrix Mixer.

Inputs and outputs are DC coupled, i.e. the module can be used for the mixing of control signals too.

- 3U Eurorack module, 8 HP wide, 30 mm in depth
- Power consumption: 10 mA at +12 V and 10 mA at -12 V

Voltage controlled 12dB/octave filter - 8HP
Notes: Module A-121-3 is functionally nearly identical to module A-121-2. Only the distances between the controls and sockets are smaller and rubberized, small rotary knobs are used. Therefore the front panel width is only 4HP compared to 8HP of the A-121-2. In the first place it is planned for applications where only limited space is available. The only functional difference compared to the A-121-2 is the missing attenuator for the resonance CV input CQ.

These are the most important features of the module:

- Voltage-controlled multi-mode filter with a cut-off slope of -12 dB / octave (identical to the filter of the Dark Energy II/III but has been expanded by the voltage controlled resonance feature)
- Four simultaneous outputs are available, each with different characteristics: low-pass (LP), high-pass (HP), band-pass (BP) and notch (N)
- Manual control Frequ. for the cut-off frequency of the filter (the cut-off frequency determines the point at which the respective filter effect appears)
- Two inputs for frequency control by means of external control voltages (frequency modulation, e.g. by ADSR or LFO):
- Control voltage input CV1 without attenuator, about 1V/octave sensitivity
- Control voltage input CV2 with attenuator FCV2 for the adjustment of the modulation depth of input CV2
- Frequency range about 10Hz ... 20kHz
- Manual control Q for the resonance of the filter
- Control voltage input CQ without attenuator for voltage control of the resonance
- Resonance up to self-oscillation, in which case the module will behave like a sine wave oscillator even without audio input signal
- Audio input In with attenuator Level for the adjustment of the filter input level (beyond about pos. 5 clipping/distortion occurs with typical A-100 audio levels)

4 channel mixer - 8HP
Notes: Module A-138 is a four channel mixer, which can be used with either control voltages or audio signals. Each of the four inputs has an attenuator, and there's a master attenuator, so that the mixer can be used at the end of the audio chain - i.e. it can be used to interface directly with an external mixer, amplifier, etc.

The A-138a version features potentiometers with linear response, so especially suitable for control voltage mixing.

Compact two-channel VCA - 4HP
Notes: Module A-130-2 is the slim version of module A-132-3 and offers essentially the same features. But the distances between the controls are smaller and rubberized small-sized knobs are used. In return the front panel has 4 HP only which is half the width of the A-132-3. The module is primarily planned for applications where only limited space is available.

The module is composed of two identical voltage controlled amplifiers (VCA). Each VCA has a manual gain control (also named Initial Gain) and a control voltage input with attenuator. The character of the control scale can be switched to linear or exponential. All inputs and outputs are DC coupled. Consequently the VCAs can be used to process both audio and control voltages (e.g. for voltage control of the level of LFO or envelope signals). The signal input has no attenuator available but is capable to process up to 16Vpp signals (i.e. -8V...+8V) without distortion. For the processing of higher levels an external attenuator (e.g. A-183-1) is recommended.

The amplification range is 0...1. Even with a higher external control voltage the amplification remains at 1 (kind of "amplification clipping" at 1).

Controls (for each of both units):

- Gain: manual gain control (Initial Gain) in the range 0...1
- CV: attenuator for the CV input
- Lin/Exp: switches the VCA characteristic to linear or exponential, in center position the VCA is off (mute function)

Inputs and outputs (for each of both units):

- CV: control voltage input, min. +5V required for max. amplification (1) with CV control fully CW and Gain fully CCW
- In: signal input, max. 16Vpp (+8V...-8V) without distortion
- Out: signal output

Voltage controllable performance mixer module package
Notes: Series A-135-4 contains several modules which are used to built a voltage controlled performance mixer. The modules of the A-135-4 series can be combined with the (non voltage controlled) mixer modules A-138o/p.

A-135-4A:

A-135-4A is the main module. It is very similar to module A-138p, but with voltage control for all parameters (except gain). Also the front panels of A-135-4A and A-138p are very similar. The only difference are the additional LEDs which are used to display the magnitudes of all voltage controlled parameters. This is necessary because the positions of the manual controls do not necessarily correspond to the resulting parameter value because these are composed by both the manual controls and the applied external control voltages (via A-135-4B). Without LEDs one would be left in the dark in regard to the actual parameter value.

A-135-4A contains four high quality voltage controlled amplifiers (VCA) for each channel: one for the main level, two for panorama left/right and one for aux. The control scales for all parameters are linear. Altogether 16 VCAs are included in the module. High end linear VCAs manufactured by Curtis/USA are used (CEM3381). The 16 LEDs display roughly the amplification of the VCA in question.

Module A-138o is used as output module for the A-135-4A. A-135-4A and A-138p can be connected together to the same A-138o to obtain e.g. four fully voltage controlled channels (A-135-4A) and four manually controlled channels (A-138p).

A-135-4B:

This module is used to route the 16 external control voltage to the main module A-135-4A. These control voltages are available for each channel:

- Level (main loudness)
- Panorama
- Aux
- Mute

Each control voltage has an input socket and a polarizer control available (the polarizer function is described more detailed on the A-138c info page). That way it's possible to adjust the depth and polarity of the external control voltage which affects the parameter in question. If the same CV (e.g. LFO or ADSR) is used e.g. for two panorama control inputs the result may be the opposite if the polarizers are adjusted accordingly (i.e. one positive and the other negative). The external control voltage is added to the voltage that is generated by the manual control on the A-135-4A main module. The sum of both voltages is used to control the VCA in question and is displayed with the corresponding LED on the A-135-4A module. The picture on the left side below shows one channel of A-135-4A/B as block diagram.

The mute CV input works in principle in the same way as the level CV input but with reverse polarity and higher sensitivity (about factor -2). Typically, the mute polarizer control is adjusted fully CW. Then a (gate) voltage of ~ +2.5V or more fully mutes the channel in question. If the mute function is not used the mute CV input can be used as a second CV input for level (with twice the sensitivity and inverted polarity compared to the normal level CV input).

A-135-4A and A-135-4B are connected internally via a 20 pin ribbon cable. The cable can be longer so that the CV input module A-135-4B needs not to be mounted next to the main module A-135-4A (e.g. to the row above or below).

Modules A-135-4A and A-135-4B are available only as a module combo because the single operation of each module does not make sense!

Reverb effects module with spring reverb tank - 8HP
Notes: Module A-199 is a spring reverb module. The reverb effect is electronically simulated by means of 3 spiral springs. Spring reverb systems have a very characteristic sound that is based on the (insufficient) mechanical properties of the springs like signal delays, audio resonances, limited frequency range, acoustic feedback behaviour, sensitivity to mechanical shocks and others.

The 3-spring system used in the A-199 ensures a "dense" reverb because of the different properties of the three springs.

The A-199 implies some special features that are not self-evident for spring reverb units:

The reverb signal can be fed back to the input using the Feedback control. Even self-oscillation of the springs similar to the self-oscillation of filters is available. The feedback loop can lead even via external modules like VCA, VCF, phaser, frequency shifter, vocoder, distortion/waveshaper, ring modulator and others. In this case the reverb output of the A-199 is connected to the input of the external module(s) and the output of the external module(s) is fed back to the Ext. Feedback In socket of the A-199. This socket contains a switch that interrupts the internal feedback loop as soon as a plug is inserted.

Another feature is the Emphasis control. This enables the adjustment of the accentuation of middle frequencies (around ~ 2kHz).

With the Mix control the relation between original and reverb signal appearing at the mix output is adjusted.

Using all these features very extreme and unusual effects can be generated with the A-199.

Quad VCA with linear curve - 8HP
Notes: Module A-132-2 contains four linear VCAs with a common level control section for all four VCAs. The module can be used for all applications of simultaneous amplitude/level control of four different audio or CV signals. The module has a manual level control Amp. and two control voltage inputs CV1 and CV2 available. CV2 is equipped with a polarizer to adjust the effect and polarity of the external control voltage.

The A-132-2 is equipped with an internal connector that can be used to normalize the four input sockets to other modules. So far only the quadrature LFO/VCO A-143-9 is equipped with a suitable matching connector. To connect the A-132-2 and the A-143-9 no soldering is required. A short 10 pin ribbon cable with removable connectors on both ends is used. For the normalling to other modules (e.g. Quad AD/LFO A-143-1, Quad ADSR A-143-2, Quad LFO A-143-3 or other modules with several outputs like VCOs or multimode VCFs) the second side of the ribbon cable has to be wired manually to the outputs of the module in question.

The maximum manual amplification for each channel is about 1.5 (i.e. "Amp." control fully CW). With an external control voltage applied to CV2 the maximum amplification goes beyond 1.5 until the signal starts to clip. The maximum output level is about 20Vpp (i.e. the signal clips at about +10V and -10V).

Typical applications:

Simultaneous level control of up to four modulation sources (e.g. ADSRs, LFOs)

Simultaneous level control of up to four audio sources (e.g. VCO outputs, multimode VCF outputs, multi-channel audio signals)

Simultaneous FM effects with different audio signals (with CV1 or CV2 in audio range)

Octal VC/manual programmable switch - 12HP
Notes: Module A-150-8 contains eight manually/voltage controlled switches. Each of the eight switches has a manual control button (Man.), a control voltage input (CV), a common Out / Input (O/I), and two In / Outputs (I/O1, I/O2). The switches are bi-directional, i.e. they can work in both directions, so can connect one input to either of two outputs, or either of two inputs to one output. Two LEDs show which in / output is active (i.e. which is connected to the common out / input). In addition, the LEDs are used for the programming of the module:

For each unit the operating mode can be selected: Toggle or Level controlled. In Toggle mode the rising edge of the CV input or operating the manual control button changes the state of the switch. In Level mode the switch state is defined by the voltage applied to the CV input (low voltage = I/O1, high voltage = I/O2) or by the state of the manual control button (not pressed = I/O1, pressed = I/O2). The modes are programmed very easily: Operating the Toggle/Level button of the program section displays the current state of each switch with the LEDs: left LED on = Toggle mode, right LED on = Level mode. Operating the manual control button of the switch in question changes the toggle/level mode while the Toggle/Level button of the program section is operated. During the programming patched CV signals may have to be removed as the CV signals would interfere with the manual operating buttons during the programming process.

In addition, it's possible to define master/slave groups. In such a group the upper unit (= master) controls also the state of the following switches provided that they are defined as slaves. Master/slave programming is also very simple: Operating the Master/Slave button of the program section displays the current state of each switch with the LEDs: left LED on = Master, right LED on = Slave.

When all 8 units are defined as master all switches are independent from each other. If for example the sequence is MSSSMSMS the control unit of the first switch also controls the switches 2, 3 and 4. The control unit of switch 5 also controls the switch 6, and the control unit of switch 7 also controls the switch 8. The current states of the slave switches are overwritten by the state of the master switch.

Technical note: To protect the electronic switches in case of an unsuitable patch (e.g. connection of two outputs) a 1k protection resistor is inserted into the O/I line of each switch. If control voltages used for VCOs are switched this may cause a small voltage drop and lead to undesired audible detuning. For this application we recommend to insert a CV buffer between A-150-8 and the VCO(s), e.g. the Buffered Multiple A-180-3 or the Precision Adder A-185-2. Integrating the buffers into the module A-150-8 was not possible because this would ruin the bidirectionality of the switches.

Voltage-controlled panning module consisting of 2 linear VCA's - 8HP
Notes: A-134-1 is a voltage controlled universal panning and/or crossfader module. If the module is used a voltage controlled Panning device one audio signal is panned to two different outputs. If the module is used a voltage controlled Crossfader two audio signals are mixed to one common output. The module enables even compositions of both functions.

The module contains two linear high quality VCAs (made with CEM3381/PA381 until April 2013, SSM2164 from May 2013). VCA2 works in the opposite direction of VCA1 i.e. the more VCA1's loudness increases the more VCA2's loudness decreases. The panning or crossfading is adjusted with a control knob (manual control) and by two external control voltages, one equipped with an attenuator. Suitable control voltage sources are e.g. LFOs (A-145, A-146, A-147), envelope signals (A-140, A-141, A-142, A-119), random (A-118), Theremin (A-178) or a voltage coming from a MIDI-to-CV-Interface (A-190, A-191). The panning/crossfading is displayed with 2 LEDs.

A-134-1 has an audio input with attenuator for each VCA. If the audio input of VCA2 is not used the audio input of VCA1 is connected with audio in of VCA 2, i.e. the sockets are "normalled". The module has three audio outputs: Left Output (VCA1), Right Output (VCA2) and Mix. For Panning applications the outputs Left Out and Right Out are used. If the module is used as a Crossfader the Mix Output functions as output.

Module A-134-1 enables voltage controlled stereophonic panning effects (one audio signal distributed to two outputs), crossfading effects (two audio inputs mixed to one audio output with voltage controlled loudness proportion) and combinations of both effects.

Dual VCA with linear response - 4HP
Notes: Module A-132-1 (Dual Low Cost VCA) contains two voltage controlled amplifiers, with a linear response most suited to regulating the level of control voltages (ADSR amount, level of vibrato effect, etc).

In non-critical situations, though, its VCAs can be used to control audio signals.

Amplification is governed by the sum of the voltages patched into the two CV inputs.

24dB low pass filter based on a Curtis filter circuit - 8HP
Notes: Module A-122 is a voltage-controlled low-pass filter, which filters out the higher parts of the sound spectrum, and lets lower frequencies pass through.

The cut-off frequency determines the point at which filtering takes effect. You can control this manually, or by voltage control (filter modulation, for instance by an LFO). Two CV inputs are available.

The cut-off slope is -24 dB/octave. The circuitry uses a Curtis chip, and is very similar to the classic Oberheim filter sound. Because of its different circuitry and controls, the A-122 has a considerably different sound to the A-120 'Moog-like' filter, especially in the way the resonance behaves.

Voltage controlled resonance: on the A-122, resonance can be controlled not just manually, but by voltages as well, right up to self-oscillation. In this case, the filter behaves like a sine wave oscillator.

Noise/random generator - 4HP
Notes: Module A-118-2 is the slim version of module A-118-1 and offers essentially the same features as the A-118-1. But the distances between the controls are smaller and rubberized small-sized knobs are used. In return the front panel has 4 HP only which is half the width of the A-118-1. The module is primarily planned for applications where only limited space is available. The functional difference between A-118-1 and A-118-2 is the additional T&H/S&H unit which is not included in the A-118-1.

The module generates the signals white noise, coloured noise, continuous random voltage and stepped random voltage (derived from the continuous random voltage by means of a S&H/T&H unit).

The noise signal is generated 100% analogue by amplification of the noise of a transistor. White and coloured noise are usually used as audio sources. The random voltages are normally used as control voltages (e.g. for filter frequency or any other voltage controlled parameter).

The A-118-2 gives you the ability to mix the relative amounts of Red (low frequency component) and Blue noise (high frequency component) in the coloured noise output.

For the continuous random voltage the rate of change (Rate) and amplitude (Level) of the random voltage can be adjusted. The continuous random voltage is derived from the coloured noise signal by low pass filtering. Consequently the settings of the controls for the coloured noise (Blue, Red) affect the behaviour of the random voltage! A dual colour LED (red = positive / yellow = negative output voltage) indicates the continuous random voltage.

The continuous random voltage is used as source for the S&H/T&H unit. The type of operation can be set to S&H (sample and hold) or T&H (track and hold). When T&H is chosen the output signal follows the input signal (= continuous random voltage) as long as the Clock input is "high". As soon as the clock signal changes to "low" the last voltage is stored. When S&H is chosen the input signal (= continuous random voltage) is sampled at the rising edge of the Clock signal.

For the Clock signal a "digital" signal (e.g. Clock, Gate, rectangle output of an LFO) is required. It does not work with slowly changing continuous CV signals. Another dual colour LED (red = positive / yellow = negative output voltage) indicates the stepped random voltage.

12dB multi-mode filter - 8HP
Notes: Module A-106-5 is a 12dB multimode filter that is based on the filter circuit of the Oberheim SEM module.

The filter is equipped with a band pass output and a combined low/notch/high pass output. For this output a control knob defines the relation between low and high pass signal. If both signals appear at the same level (i.e. middle position of the Mix knob) one obtains a notch filter. Otherwise the low or high pass signal predominates.

The module does not feature self-oscillation in contrast to most of the other filters of the A-100 system.

The module generates a distorted audio signal if the level control is set to about 50% (i.e. centre position) or more with A-100 standard signals like VCOs.

Multi-connector module - 4HP
Notes: Modules A-180-1 and A-180-2 are simple multi-connectors. They have eight inter-connected sockets, so that you can "multiply" any audio or control signal. From the factory the modules come as two four-fold multiples. But they can be modified as an eight-fold multiple (solder bridge on the pcb). Though these modules are very "primitive" they are required very often in patches (e.g. to distribute a clock signal or a control voltage). Within a big A-100 system sufficient multiples should be planned. The function of A-180-1 and A-180-2 is the same. The modules differ only in the front panel width.

For the distribution of control voltages used for pitch control of several VCOs the buffered multiple A-185-2 is recommended. This module has a built in buffer (and a lot of additional features like CV summing) that avoids small voltage losses that may be heard in pitch control applications.

Quad passive switch - 4HP
Notes: A-182-2 is a simple passive module that contains four changeover switches, which are used to connect or disconnect the sockets of the corresponding socket triplet:

- In the upper position of the switch the upper socket of the corresponding socket triplet is connected to the centre socket
- In the lower position of the switch the lower socket of the corresponding socket triplet is connected to the centre socket
- In the centre position of the switch the sockets are not connected

Each unit of the module can be used to switch between two signals or to interrupt/connect a signal. In the last case the third socket of the triplet is not used.

The module is fully passive and both audio or control signals can be switched.

Analogue noise/random with black faceplate & custom knobs - 8HP
Notes: Module A-118 is (as you might have guessed) a noise and random voltage generator. It produces three types of signal: white noise, coloured noise, and random voltage. The noise signal is generated 100% analogue by amplification of the noise of a transistor. White and coloured noise can be used as audio sources, and also, in conjunction with a sample & hold module, as control voltages, and the random voltage is a useful source of voltage control, especially for its low frequency content.

The A-118 gives you the ability to mix the relative amounts of Red (low frequency component) and Blue noise (high frequency component) in the coloured noise output.

There are knobs to control the rate of change and amplitude of the random voltage, and two LEDs indicate the state of the voltage at any one time.

Voltage-controlled multi-mode filter - 8HP
Notes: Module A-121 is a voltage-controlled multi-mode filter with a cut-off slope of -12 dB / octave. Four simultaneous outputs are available, each with different characteristics: low-pass, band-pass, high-pass and notch (or band reject). The cut-off frequency determines the point at which the respective filter effects appear. The frequency can be adjusted manually, or by voltage control (Filter modulation, for instance by an LFO or ADSR). Two CV inputs are available, whose control voltages are summed. Resonance (Emphasis or Q) can be adjusted manually, or by voltage control, right up to self-oscillation, in which case it will behave like a sine wave oscillator.

Technical notes: Module A-121-2 is the successor of the obsolete module A-121. But the circuitry is totally different from the A-121 which used the obsolete CEM3320 filter circuit. The sound of the new module A-121-2 is identical to filter of the Dark Energy II but has been expanded by the voltage-controlled resonance feature.

Four channel mixer for mixing control signals - 8HP
Notes: Module A-138c is a four channel mixer, that allows to add or to subtract four incoming voltages to the output signal. In the middle position of the corresponding control the amplification is zero. Turning the knob counter-clockwise the signal is subtracted from the output sum with increasing amount. Turning the knob clockwise the signal is added to the output sum with increasing amount. The output control works in the same way, i.e. the resulting output signal can be additionally attenuated and/or inverted.

The module is used in the first place to mix control voltages (e.g. ADSR, LFO). It can be used to mix audio signals too but there is no difference between adding and subtracting audio signals unless they have a fixed phase relationship (e.g. the outputs of a VCO, or the input and output signal of a VCF). For audio signals without phase correlation there is no difference between addition and subtraction.
Control In1 works as a DC offset generator (about -5V...+5V) provided that no patch cord is plugged into socket In1. If this feature is not required it can be deactivated by removing a jumper on the pc board.

The voltage controlled version of a polarizer is the module A-133.

Sound source deriving four subharmonics from an incoming square wave signal - 26HP
Notes: Module A-113 is a new sound source that derives four so-called subharmonics (German: Subharmonische) from an incoming pulse signal. The term subharmonics was introduced by Oskar Sala in connection with his so-called Mixtur-Trautonium. A subharmonic means in this context a sawtooth wave (German: Kippschwinger) whose frequency is derived from a master frequency and the master frequency is an integer multiple in the range of 1...24 of the subharmonic - in other words: the master frequency is divided by an integer 1...24 to obtain the subharmonic.

The output waveform of a subharmonic is sawtooth (as also used in the original Trautonium) and not sine. The term subharmonics is somewhat misleading. The master frequency comes e.g. from an A-110 or A-111 to the frequency input of the A-113. The frequency dividers of the 4 subharmonics is adjusted with up/down buttons as displayed with two character LED displays. The subharmonics are available as single outputs and as mix output with adjustable levels for the subharmonics.

Two gate type control inputs enable to select between 4 different mixtures, i.e. 4 different settings of the frequency dividers. In the original Trautonium these are controlled by foot switches to switch between 3 mixtures while playing (the original Trautonium has only 3 mixtures available but with the 2 gate inputs of the A-113 four different settings can be addressed).

Additionally, the A-113 features a mixture memory with 50 presets. Each preset consists of 4 mixtures that can be selected with the gate inputs, each mixture contains the values of the 4 frequency dividers.

Voltage controlled waveform processor - 8HP
Notes: Module A-116 provides voltage-controlled dynamic waveform modification of audio signals. It can produce new waveforms from the standard VCO shapes, and modulate these changes in real time. The signal first of all goes through an input amplifier, which can attenuate the signal as well as amplify it by up to a factor of 2.

After the input amplifier, the signal goes through two parallel processors: a clipping circuit, and an asymmetrical amplifier. The processed signals are added together and sent to the output.

Clipping-Level and Symmetry amounts are not just manually controllable, but can also be modulated by control voltages, to produce complex, constantly changing waveforms.

Multimode filter based on the filter circuit of the Oberheim Xpander - 12HP
Notes: Module A-106-6 is a multimode filter that is based on the filter circuit of the Oberheim Xpander. The module features 15 different filter types (those filters of the A-107 that were available in the Xpander) with 8 filters available simultaneously. The toggle switch Filter Group is used to switch between 2 filter groups.

These filter types are available:

- 1L (6 dB low pass)
- 2L (12 dB low pass)
- 3L (18 dB low pass)
- 4L (24 dB low pass)
- 1H (6 dB high pass)
- 2H (12 dB high pass)
- 3H (18 dB high pass)
- 2B (6 dB band pass)
- 4B (12 dB bandpass)
- 2N (notch)
- 3A (allpass)
- 2H1L (asymmetrical band pass made of a 12 dB high pass and a 6 dB low pass)
- 3H1L (asymmetrical band pass made of a 18 dB high pass and a 6 dB low pass)
- 2N1L (combination of notch and 6 dB low pass)
- 3A1L (combination of allpass and 6 dB low pass)

The module features voltage-controlled resonance. For filter group 2 (2L, 4L, 2B ...) even self-oscillation is possible.

All standard VCF controls are available: manual filter frequency control Frq, one control voltage input with attenuator (FCV2) and one without attenuator (FCV1, ~ 1 V/octave). In addition, voltage-controlled resonance with manual control (Q) and a CV input with attenuator (QCV) are available.

The circuit is based on a 24dB lowpass filter. The outputs of the four internal filter stages (i.e. the 6, 12, 18 and 24dB outputs) are mixed together with different levels and polarities to obtain 15 different filters. Because of this special circuit the outputs have slightly different levels and noise floor. This is caused by the different internal amplifications and numbers of stages that are required to generate the filter in question. If e.g. a filter is derived by one stage only (e.g. the 6 dB, 12dB, 18dB and 24dB low pass) the noise floor is smaller compared to a filter that is derived by a combination of all four filter stages.

Classic Moog voltage-controlled lowpass filter - 12HP
Notes: Module A-108 is a completely new voltage-controlled low pass filter based on the well-known transistor ladder (Moog ladder). The module has internally an 8-stage low pass filter with different slopes available: 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42 and 48 dB per octave. In addition, it features a band pass output (i.e. band pass with transistor ladder). In the factory, the 4 low pass outputs of the A-108 are internally connected to the filter stages 6, 12, 24 and 48dB.

Resonance (Emphasis or Q) can be adjusted manually right up to self-oscillation, in which case the filter will behave like a sine wave oscillator. The A-108 features an external feedback input that enables the insertion of additional modules into the feedback path (e.g. VCA for voltage-controlled resonance or phaser/frequency shifter for phase/frequency shifting effects). The socket is normalized and internally connected to the 48dB low pass output if no cable is inserted into the feedback socket.

The frequency can be adjusted manually, or by voltage control. Three CV inputs (CV1, CV2, CV3) are available. CV2 and CV3 are equipped with attenuators.

The filter audio input is very sensitive so that distortion - if desired - is possible even with normal A-100 levels (e.g. VCO output). Self-oscillation will break off at high distortion levels as the internal feedback signal is drown out by the distorted audio signal. This feature may intentionally be used to create new sounds.

In combination with the Voltage Controlled Mixer A-135 and the Morphing Controller A-144 a filter with voltage-controlled slope can be realized (i.e. controlling the slope from 6dB to 48dB via CV).

Octal VCA module containing four VCA pairs - 8HP
Notes: A-132-8 is an octal VCA and primarily planned for polyphonic applications. The module contains four VCA pairs. Each pair includes two daisy-chained VCAs. One VCA has a linear control scale, for the second VCA linear or exponential control scale can be chosen by means of jumpers. We decided to provide two VCAs for each voice because usually one VCA is required for loudness envelope and a second one for velocity (or other functions like individual voltage-controlled loudness of each voice, amplitude modulation and so on).

These controls and in/outputs are available:

- Default Gain 1 (GL)
- Default Gain 2 (GX)
- CV Input VCA 1
- CV Input VCA 2
- Audio Input
- Audio Output

In addition, an Audio Sum Output is also available.

The module features two Default Gain controls (GL, GX), that enable the opening of the first VCAs (L) and/or second VCAs (X). For this the controls GL and GX generate two internal control voltages 0...+10V which are connected to the switching contacts of the sockets 1L...4L (control GL) and 1X...4X (control GX). As long as no patch cable is inserted into the socket in question the internal default control voltage (GL or GX) is used to control the corresponding VCA. This is necessary when the VCA in question is not in use (i.e. no external CV available). Otherwise the VCA would close and there would be no output signal even if the other VCA in the chain is open. The controls GL and GX are also useful for testing polyphonic patches (e.g. for tuning the VCOs).

In the factory the CV inputs are adjusted for a CV range 0...+10V - matching to the polyphonic ADSR module A-141-4. But the sensitivity of each CV input can be adjusted by means of a trimming potentiometer to adapt the CVs even to other control voltage ranges.

Analog VCO/LFO module with wide frequency range - 4HP
Notes: The Micro Precision VCO is a space-saving and utterly precise analog VCO/LFO with a extremely wide frequency range, immaculate tracking over at least ten octaves and nearly perfect waveforms.

Basically, it's the same circuitry like the High-End VCO A-111-2 but with reduced functions and controls. It is suitable as a modulator for exact linear FM and much more.

The A-111-3 has two elements for setting the frequency: A switch selecting between LFO and VCO mode as well as a tune control with a jumper-selectable range:

- Jumper position 1: 16Hz to 20 kHz
- Jumper position 2: 16Hz to 70Hz
- Without jumper: 16Hz to 22Hz

The XM potentiometer can be used as a fine tune control as long as nothing is patched to the XM socket.

The oscillator has a frequency range of at least fifteen osctaves (0.0001 - 40 Hz in LFO mode; 0.5 Hz to 20 kHz in VCO mode) and offers perfect 1 V per octave tracking over ten octaves minimum, typically in the range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Frequencies below 25 Hz are visualized with a two-colour LED.

The 1V per octave input is accompanied by two FM inputs, one for linear and one for exponential frequency modulation. A jumper determines whether the module obtains pitch CV via the internal bus.

The VCO has a triangle core from which sawtooth, pulse and triangle are derived. The wave forms are almost perfect and sans glitches.

The pulse width can be set with a control from 0 to 100% and of course it can be modulated.

There is one input for oscillator synchronisation and its type, either hard or soft sync, is jumper-selected. Both types differ in sound with the hard sync being more aggressive and richer in harmonics.

Classic voltage controlled phase shifter - 8HP
Notes: Module A-125 (VC Phaser) is a voltage controlled phase shifter. Phase shifting can be controlled either manually or by voltage control. Other parameters which can be controlled are resonance (governing the depth of the comb filtering, and tonal colour) and mix (the amount of the original signal which is added to the phase-shifted signal). The A-125 is used to generate the typical phaser sound ("jet sound"). Due to the voltage control feature not only the usual LFO-controlled phasings but even ADSR-, random-, sequencer- or S&H-controlled phasings are possible. In combination with the Shepard generator A-191 and several A-125 never ending barberpole phasing effects come true.

Breakout module for the A-127 Triple Resonance Filter - 8HP
Notes: This expansion module offers the following additional functions:

- Notch filter for each sub-unit
- Separate outputs for lowpass, high-pass, bandpass and notch for each sub-unit
- Separate audio input with attenuator for each sub-unit

The breakout module allows the separate use of each of the three A-127 filters. In addition, the filters can be patched parallel or serial. Especially the serial connection of three notches generates very complex phasing-like structures. For parallel filter connection the existing mixer of the main module may be used or an external mixer. For serial connection the filters are patched in the desired sequence at the breakout module. A jumper is used to define the filter type for each sub-unit for the mix unit of the main module.

The breakout module can be used without modification only in combination with the new version of the A-127 (PCB printing "Version 4"). Only the new version has the expansion connector available, that is required to connect the breakout module without soldering. It's also possible to combine the breakout module with older versions of the A-127 (versions 1, 2 and 3) but in this case soldering is required to connect the breakout module to the main module (soldering 4 wires to each filter unit).

Triple resonance filter unit - 28HP
Notes: Module A-127 is a triple resonance filter unit. It contains three separate voltage-controlled band pass filters. Each filter has its own LFO (triangle waveform) with LED display and adjustable frequency and amplitude. Instead of the internal LFO an external control voltage may be used to control the filter frequency. In this case the external voltage is fed into the external CV jack (with integrated switch to turn off the LFO signal) and the amplitude control of the LFO affects the level of the external CV signal. Each filter is equipped with the following controls: LFO frequency, LFO/external CV amplitude, filter frequency, filter resonance and filter amplitude. In addition to the mix output for all three filters each filter has a separate audio output. The original audio signal can be added to the triple filter mix signal with a separate control. All 3 filters share a common audio input with attenuator. The filter audio inputs are very sensitive so that distortion may intentionally be used to create new sounds - if desired.

The frequency control range of the bandpass filters is about 40Hz...6kHz, the frequency range of the LFO's is about 0.02Hz...20Hz (= 1 min ... 1/20 sec per cycle).

Each of the three filters can used also as a 12dB low pass (with resonance control) instead of band pass. For this a jumper has to be changed on the filter board in question. In this case the module can be called no longer "resonance filter" but "triple low pass filter". It is also possible to modify only one or two of the filters to low pass.

B-STOCK: Box opened, product in perfect working order
Notes: ***B-STOCK: Box opened, product in perfect working order***


Module A-122 is a voltage-controlled low-pass filter, which filters out the higher parts of the sound spectrum, and lets lower frequencies pass through.

The cut-off frequency determines the point at which filtering takes effect. You can control this manually, or by voltage control (filter modulation, for instance by an LFO). Two CV inputs are available.

The cut-off slope is -24 dB/octave. The circuitry uses a Curtis chip, and is very similar to the classic Oberheim filter sound. Because of its different circuitry and controls, the A-122 has a considerably different sound to the A-120 'Moog-like' filter, especially in the way the resonance behaves.

Voltage controlled resonance: on the A-122, resonance can be controlled not just manually, but by voltages as well, right up to self-oscillation. In this case, the filter behaves like a sine wave oscillator.

Vactrol-based multimode filter based on a schematic by Nyle Steiner, featuring separate inputs for lowpass, bandpass & highpass
Notes: This filter's unique feature is that different filter types are realized by injecting the audio signal at different points of the circuit. For this reason, the A-101-1 has three inputs with level control: one lowpass input which is normalized to the bandpass input, which itself is normalized to the highpass input. The level controls make it possible to mix the filters and to generate new filter types. e.g. with all three filter levels turned to maximum level you get a notch filter.

Furthermore, the cutoff frequency influences which filter type is "monitored". This way you can blend from LP over BP to HP with increasing cutoff, known as "frequency scanning". Interesting effects happen when three different audio signals are used because they are both morphed and filtered at the same time.

Vactrol based combination of resonant 12dB lowpass filter and/or VCA - inspired by the Buchla 292
Notes: A Low Pass Gate (LPG) can be a low pass filter, a VCA or a combination of both. This means both the harmonic content and volume can be controlled simultaneously which resembles the behaviour of many instruments: the louder, the more harmonics.

The A-101-2's mode of operation is set with a switch: left position is low pass, right is VCA and the combo mode is in the centre. Alternatively, you can activate the modes with gate signals which is the reason for two gate inputs; this is very interesting in combination with clock dividers or trigger sequencers.

- Gate 1 high & gate 2 low = low pass mode
- Gate 1 low & gate 2 high = VCA mode
- Both Gate 1 & 2 high = combo mode

The A-101-2 has an aggressive sound, compared to other LPGs and its resonance goes up to self-oscillation which not many LPGs offer. The oscillation is rather dirty and far from being a sine wave.

Complex 12-stage phase shifter with separate in- and outputs for all phaser stages
Notes: Module A-101-3 is a 12-stage phase shifter with vactrols as phase shifting elements. Vactrols are known for their smooth sound behaviour. In contrast to other phaser designs, the A-101-3 is much more flexible and offering a lot of new features not available from other phasers on the market. The main difference is that the Doepfer design offers access to each of the 12 input and output stages leading to a lot of new filters that cannot be obtained in other ways. Especially the free patchable feedback loops (yes, not only one feedback loop is possible) between each of the 12 stages, the separate phase shift control for the stages 1-6 and 7-12, and the 2 polarizers intended to control the feedback loops lead to completely new filter types (a polarizer is a circuit that is able to generate positive and negative amplifications in the range -1...0...+1 with -1 = inversion, 0 = full attenuation, +1 = unchanged signal, for details concerning the polarizer function please look at the A-133 VC Polarizer or A-138c Polarizing Mixer module).

Internally, the module is made of 2 independent 6 stage phase shifters (1-6 reps. 7-12) with separate audio inputs (with attenuators), audio outputs (with mix control), and phase shift control units. The phase shift control units feature both manual and voltage-controlled phase shifting (e.g. from a LFO, ADSR, Random Voltage, Theremin CV, Foot Controller CV ...). For each sub-module a phase shift display (LED) is available. The LED shows the illumination state of the 6 vactrols of the sub-module in question as it is connected in series with the internal vactrol LEDs.

Each of the 12 phase shift states is equipped with an audio output socket and feedback input socket to obtain full flexibility to create a multitude of different filters. The audio input signal and the output signals of stage 6 resp. stage 12 are mixed with 2 manual controls to obtain effects at two audio outputs (for normal phase shifting effect this is 50% input signal and 50% phase shifted signal). The two submodules are internally connected via normalized sockets so that two 6 stage phase shifters can be obtained without external patches. Audio output of stage 6 is normalized to audio input of stage 7 and CV input 1-6 is normalized to CV input 7-12. But due to the open structure of the module even other stages than stage 6 and stage 12 can be used as outputs to generate different sounds (simply patch the desired stage output to the normalized mix input socket).

Logarithmic mixer for mixing up to four signals to one output - 8HP
Notes: Module A-138 is a four channel mixer, which can be used with either control voltages or audio signals. Each of the four inputs has an attenuator, and there's a master attenuator, so that the mixer can be used at the end of the audio chain - i.e. it can be used to interface directly with an external mixer, amplifier, etc.

A-138b features potentiometers with logarithmic response, so especially suitable for audio signal mixing.

Vintage Edition with a black faceplate and custom knobs.

Linear voltage controlled amplifier - 8HP
Notes: The A-130 is a VCA with linear characteristic, thus primarily intended for controlling the level of CVs. It offers two signal inputs and an output with adjustable volume. Amplification is set with a Gain control and two modulation inputs.

Not only control voltages can be used to "open" the VCA and to let the inputs pass through, there is also a manual gain control. This is pretty handy when you want to modulate the VCA with a bi-polar voltage - just turn up the gain half-way - this way you can use the CV's negative signal parts for closing the VCA.

As the module has two signal inputs often you don't need a mixer before the VCA.

Dual Voltage Controlled Amplifiers (VCA) synth module - 8HP
Notes: Module A-132-3 is composed of two identical voltage controlled amplifiers (VCA). Each VCA has a manual gain control and a control voltage input with attenuator.

The character of the control scale can be switched to linear or exponential.

All inputs and outputs are DC coupled. Consequently the VCAs can be used to process both audio and control voltages.

The input has no attenuator available but is capable to process up to 16Vss signals (i.e. -8V...+8V) without distortion.

Four identical voltage controlled amplifiers with exponential control scales - 6HP
Notes: Module A-132-4 contains four identical voltage controlled amplifiers (VCA) with exponential control scales. Each VCA has two control voltage inputs (C1, C2), a signal input (In) and a signal output (Out). The control voltage inputs C1 and the signal inputs can be normalled by means of internal jumpers, i.e. the corresponding input signals of unit #1 can be connected to the switching contacts of unit #2. Those of unit #2 can be normalled to unit #3 and those of unit #3 to unit #4. If the normalling is not desired the jumpers have to be removed. In addition the sum of all four outputs is available (bottom left socket with the sum sign). Therefore unit #4 has only one control voltage input (only C1, no C2). If desired this socket can be jumpered as control voltage input 2. But then the sum signal is no longer available as a socket (only as an internal pin). For each VCA output a jumper is available that determines if the output signal of the corresponding VCA is added to the sum signal. From the factory all four jumpers are set (i.e. all four VCA output signals are added). By removing of one or more of the jumpers one can choose which VCA output is added to the sum. The jumpers can be replaced by switches too.

Technical notes:

The control scale for each VCA is about 12dB/V (i.e. 1 V CV decrease corresponds to 12dB level decrease and 1 V CV increase corresponds to 12dB level increase). 0V CV corresponds to about -60dB (i.e. about attenuation by 1000). +5V CV corresponds to about 0dB (i.e. no attenuation or amplification = 1). The full attenuation/amplification range is about -90dB ... + 20dB. Attenuations below -60dB require a negative control voltage, amplifications beyond 0dB require a control voltage more than +5V. For the first CV input of each unit (CV1) an internal trimming potentiometer (attenuator) is available to adjust the control scale for other voltage ranges (e.g. 0...+8V for A-140 envelope control or 0...+10V for external 10V control voltages). To obtain another CV scale even for CV2 an attenuator (e.g. A-183-1) can be used. If an amplification offset is required (e.g. for zero-symmetrical control voltages like LFO) an external offset generator with attenuator/polarizer (e.g. A-183-2) is recommended.

The A-132-4 uses a circuit with four exponential VCAs (SSM2164/V2164). Unfortunately there is no easy way to obtain a linear scale for the VCAs (actually two exponential VCAs are required to obtain a linear VCA, that's how e.g. the A-132-1 and A-132-3 work).

Analogue noise & random module - 8HP
Notes: Module A-118 is a noise and random voltage generator. It produces three types of signal: white noise, coloured noise, and random voltage.

White and coloured noise can be used as audio sources, and also, in conjunction with a sample & hold module, as control voltages, and the random voltage is a useful source of voltage control, especially for its low frequency content.

The A-118 gives you the ability to mix the relative amounts of Red (low frequency component) and Blue noise (high frequency component) in the coloured noise output.

There are knobs to control the rate of change and amplitude of the random voltage, and two LEDs indicate the state of the voltage at any one time.

Module consisting of voltage-controlled low frequency oscillator (LFO) & voltage controlled amplifier (VCA) - 8HP
Notes: Module A-147-2 is the successor of the VCLFO A-147 but offers much more features than the predecessor. The module is made of these sub-units:

- VCLFO: voltage controlled low frequency oscillator
- VCA: voltage controlled amplifier, switchable to voltage controlled polarizer
- VC delay unit: voltage controlled linear attack envelope (only one parameter: attack) for delayed LFO operation in combination with the VCA (e.g. delayed vibrato/tremolo)

LFO: The voltage controlled LFO has the waveforms Triangle, Sine, Sawtooth and Rectangle available and features a Reset/Sync input. Triangle/Sine and Rectangle are displayed by means of dual-colour LEDs (probably red/green), Sawtooth has a unicolor LED available (probably blue). The output levels are about -4V...+4V for Triangle, Sine and Rectangle. The Sawtooth level is about 0...+8V.

The CV control can be switched to attenuator or polarizer ("CV Mode" switch). In polarizer mode the CV inputs affects the frequency in the reverse manner when the CV control is left from the centre position. In the centre position CV has no effect and right from the centre the control works like a normal attenuator. The frequency range (without external CV) is from about 0,005 Hz (i.e. about 3 minutes per period) to 200 Hz (with external CV max. frequency about 1kHz). In addition a ultra-low mode can be activated by means of an internal jumper. When the ultra-low jumper is set a fixed voltage is connected to the switching contact of the "LFO CV" socket. In polarizer mode of the CV control that way extremely low frequencies (up to one hour period and more) are possible. For this a jumper has to be installed on the pin header JP6. In the factory a dummy jumper is installed on the pin header JP7 "Dummy". JP7 has no function and is used only for "parking" of the jumper. Simply remove the jumper from JP7 and plug it on JP6. JP6 is located behind the CV control.

VCA: This is a linear VCA that can be switched to "normal" VCA (i.e. kind of a voltage controlled attenuator) or voltage controlled polarizer ("VCA Mode" switch). In the "normal" VCA mode amplification +1 is achieved with about +5V control voltage. In polarizer mode the amplification ranges from about -0.5 (i.e. inverted signal with about 50% level) with 0V CV to +0.5 (i.e. non-inverted signal with about 50% level) with +5V CV. With about +2.5V CV the signal is suppressed. Details about the functioning of a voltage controlled polarizer can be found in the description of the module A-133. In this mode the VCA can be treated also a DC coupled ring modulator (similar to A-114).

The VCA of the A-147-2 has three sockets available: "In" (signal input), "Out" (signal output) and "CV" (control voltage input).

The Triangle Output of the LFO is normalled to the VCA signal input by means of the switching contact of the "VCA In" socket. If another LFO waveform (or any other signal) should be processed by the VCA the corresponding signal has to be patched to the "VCA In" socket. The VCA can be used also independently from the LFO and the Delay CV. In this case the VCA sockets In, Out and CV have to be patched accordingly. The VCA can be used also as waveshaper for the LFO signals (e.g. by patching VCA In and VCA CV to different LFO signals, if necessary via attenuator A-183-1 or offset generator/attenuator A-183-2).

Attack/Delay: The third sub-unit of the module is a simple, voltage controlled envelope generator that has only the parameter "Delay" (or Attack) available. This unit generates a linear increasing voltage that starts from 0V after each Delay Reset until it reaches about +5V. Then the voltage remains at +5V until the next Delay Reset occurs. The inclination or gradient is controlled by the manual Delay control and the Delay control voltage ("Delay CV" input). The waveform is linear, the control scale is exponential. The output voltage is displayed by a green LED and available at the "Delay Out" socket.

The manual Delay control ranges - without external "Delay CV" - from about 5ms (fully CW) up to 2 minutes (fully CCW). By means of an external voltage applied to the "Delay CV" socket this range can be extended. A rising CV shortens the delay time (behaviour like a VCO)!

The Delay output voltage ranges from about 0V to +5V. The rising edge of the gate, clock or trigger signal applied to the "Delay Reset" sockets resets the Delay output voltage to 0 V.

"Delay Out" is normalled to the VCA CV input by means of the switching contact of the "VCA CV" socket and consequently controls the Triangle level provided that no other patch is made. A typical example is the usage of a Gate signal (e.g. from a USB/Midi-to-CV/Gate interface) as Delay Reset. That way a delayed vibrato or tremolo can be realized if the VCA output is patched to the frequency CV input of a VCO (or VCF), or the CV input of a VCA.

Four-channel stereo mixer - 8HP
Notes: A-138s is a simple but useful 4-in-2 mixing tool. It has four inputs available. Each input is equipped with an attenuator (Level) and a panning control that is used to distribute the signal to the left and right output. Beyond stereo mixing it is equally suited to create variable parallel routings. For example: Any of the four inputs may be routed in variable intensity to feed two filters.

You may regard the A-138s as a smaller version of the A-138m Matrix Mixer.

Inputs and outputs are DC coupled, i.e. the module can be used for the mixing of control signals too.

- 3U Eurorack module, 8 HP wide, 30 mm in depth
- Power consumption: 10 mA at +12 V and 10 mA at -12 V
