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).

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

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.

Quad precision VCO - 18HP
Notes: A-111-4 contains four precision VCOs and has individual controls, inputs and outputs for each VCO available as well as a common control and output unit. After all the A-111-4 is very similar to four A-111-3 without LFO mode but built in output mixers for the three waveforms, and a master unit for all four VCOs.

Controls, inputs and outputs for each of the four VCOs:

- 1V/Octave CV input
- Octave switch (+1 / 0 / -1 octave)
- Tune control (range internally adjustable by jumpers: ~ 2 semitones / ~ 1 octave / ~ 4 octaves)
- Modulation CV input
- Modulation destination: Upper position: exponential frequency modulation (XM) / Lower position: linear frequency modulation (LM) or pulsewidth modulation of the rectangle (PM), selectable via internal jumper
- Frequency Modulation (FM) or Pulsewidth Modulation of the rectangle (PWM)
- Modulation intensity
- Triangle output
- Sawtooth output
- Rectangle output (about 50% without external PWM)
- Sync input (hard or soft sync internally selectable via jumper, CEM3340 hard sync type)
- CEM3340 based VCO (triangle core)
- Each VCO has it's own separate internal +/- power supply for each for best stability and the prevention of unwanted synchronisation of the VCOs

Controls, inputs and outputs of the master section:

- 1V/Octave CV input
- Octave switch (+1 / 0 / -1 octave)
- Tune control (range internally adjustable by jumpers: 2 semitones / 1 octave / 4 octaves)
- Frequency Modulation CV input (FM)
- FM intensity
- Triangle sum output
- Sawtooth sum output
- Rectangle sum output
- As soon as the single waveform output of a VCO is patched this waveform of the VCO in question is removed from the sum (this function can be turned off for each single output socket by means of solder bridges on the pc board, i.e. the sum contains then all signals independent of the patching of the single output)
- CV output (outputs the sum CV that is used to control all four VCOs)
- Bus CV (via jumper, optional, please remove the bus jumper if this feature is not used to avoid unwanted frequency modulation as then the unused CV line of the bus works as a kind of antenna)

Typical applications:

- Fat sounding monophonic VCO with the possibility to adjust any intervals
- Paraphonic patches in combination with the polyphonic CV interface A-190-5 (all four VCOs processed by one VCF/VCA)
- Full polyphonic patches in combination with the polyphonic CV interface A-190-5 and four complete VCF/VCA sections
- Complex VCO patches with up to four VCOs by means of the frequency modulation features (exponential an linear) and the sync functions

Quad low frequency oscillator - 4HP
Notes: Module A-145-4 is a simple quad LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator). Not a very "exciting" module, just a bread-and-butter device and a simple demon for work. Virtually in every modular system several LFOs are required for modulation purposes. The module contains four simple LFOs with the waveforms triangle and rectangle. A dual colour LED (red = positive / yellow = negative output voltage) indicates the triangle output of each LFO. The frequency range can be chosen for each LFO individually by means of a jumper between about 50 Hz ... 0.04 Hz (about 20 seconds, jumper removed) and about 2Hz ... 0.002 (about 8 minutes, jumper installed).

The module can be treated as a slimmed version of the quad LFO A-143-3 as it has similar features available. 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 less than one third of the A-143-3. The module is primarily planned for applications where only limited space is available. The functional difference compared to the A-143-3 are the missing sawtooth outputs and frequency range switches.

Envelope module with two ADSR voltage controlled enevelope generators - 8HP
Notes: The module contains two ADSR type voltage controlled envelope generators with exponential curve shapes (charge/discharge curves of a capacitor) 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 (10V = attack peak).

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.

Polyphonic filter with four identical 24dB Lowpass filters 8HP
Notes: A-105-4 is our first polyphonic filter and contains four
identical 24dB Lowpass filters (SSM2044 type). It has
available common manual controls and CV inputs with
attenuators for these parameters:

Frequency (F)

Frequency Modulation Intensity (FM)

Resonance (Q)

Audio Input Level (L)
Each filter has available a separate FM input as well as an Audio Input and Output. The FM input is typically connected to the output of the associated envelope generator (e.g. A-141-4).
The envelope amount for all four filters is controlled by the FM knob and the CVFM input by means of four built-in VCAs, which are controlled by the FM control and CVFM input. This allows also voltage control of the envelope amounts.

In addition common frequency modulation for all filters is possible (e.g. by an LFO). For this the CVF input with attenuator can be used. The range of the audio input level control (L) allows also clipping/distortion with typical A-100 audio levels
(e.g. from A-111-4) at the filter inputs. Even this parameter is voltage controllable as well as the resonance (Q).
Application: polyphonic patches (four VCFs with same parameters).

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.

Enhanced clock divider with multiple dividing factors - 4HP
Notes: Module A-160-2 is an enhanced version of the standard clock divider A-160. The module is a frequency divider for clock/trigger/gate signals, designed to be a source of lower frequencies, particularly for rhythm uses. The Clock input will take any digital signal from, eg. LFO, MIDI sync, or the gate from a MIDI-CV interface. At the outputs, you have access to three sets of seven different sub-divided clock signals, from half the clock frequency down to 1/128. The low/high levels of the output signals are 0V and about +10V.

The A-160-2 also has a reset input. Whenever a reset signal is sensed, all outputs are set to certain levels which depend upon the selected mode.

These are the most important features of the module:

Three different sets of dividing factors, selected by a three-position switch at the front panel:
- Power of two: 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128
- Prime numbers: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17
- Integer: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Two output modes, selected by a two-position switch at the front panel:
- Gate mode: outputs act like the outputs of typical binary dividers
- Trigger mode: in this mode the outputs are AND-wired with the clock signal (i.e. the clock pulsewidth affects the pulsewidth of the outputs)
- Clock edge type selected by a jumper on the pc board:
- Positive: the rising edge of the clock signal triggers the state change of the outputs
- Negative: the falling edge of the clock signal triggers the state change of the outputs

Reset behaviour by two jumpers on the pc board:
- Level triggered: the level at the Reset input triggers the Reset
- Edge triggered: the edge of the signal at the Reset input triggers the Reset
- Positive: a high level (> 2.5V) or the rising edge at the Reset input triggers the Reset
- Negative: a low level (< 1 V) or the falling edge at the Reset input triggers the Reset

Output polarity selected by a jumper on the pc board:
- Positive: non-inverted outputs
- Negative: all seven outputs are inverted

Width: 4HP / 20mm
Depth: 35mm (Measured from the rear side of the front panel)
Current: +12V: +50mA, -12V: -0mA

12dB multi-mode filter based on classic SEM filter circuitry
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.

Inputs: Audio In, CV1 In without attenuator, CV2 In with Polarizer
Outputs: Bandpass Out, Low/Highpass Mix-Out
Controls: Audio Attenuator, CV2 Polarizer, Frequency, Resonance, LP/HP Mix

The function and operation of this module is very similar to the Wasp filter module A-124. But the sound of both filters is very different! We will publish no separate user's manual for the A-106-5 but a combined manual for both A-106-5 and A-124. 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)

Four-fold envelope follower with adjustable attack & release time for each channel
Notes: The A-135-4C is composed of four envelope followers with adjustable attack and release. The circuit was designed to be used as an addition for the A-135-4A/B Performance Mixer, adding ducking, compressor and expander functions to the mixing system. However, thanks to a full set of inputs and outputs, it is also possible to employ the A-135-4C for other tasks.

The A-135-4C offers four identical envelope followers. Each modulator comes equipped with an audio input, attack and release potentiometers as well as a CV output. LED's visualize control voltages generated by the module. The A-135-4C can be connected to the A-135-4A/B Performance Mixer via a Ribbon cable. Users are able to determine whether audio material gets tapped off directly after the input connectors, behind the gain stages or after the level control of the A-135-4A. By plugging in patch cables into the envelope follower's inputs, the internal routing can be suspended.

Multi-featured mixer - 6HP
Notes: Module A-138i is a four channel mixer with an additional mute switch for each input. On top of that it is equipped with two types of single outputs and a dual mix output. All inputs and outputs are DC coupled. Consequently the VCAs can be used to mix both audio and control voltages.

Each input is - apart from the mute switch - equipped with the usual attenuator.

The single outputs offer the attenuated and possibly muted signal of the channel in question. Two version of single outputs are available:

Single Output A: If a plug is inserted into the single output "A" socket the channel in question is removed from the sum signal.

Single Output B: If a plug is inserted into the single output "B" socket the channel in question is not removed from the sum signal. This type of single outputs is available only for the channels 1 and 2.

The output is twice available (two sockets, hard-wired like a multiple).

The distances between the controls and sockets are smaller as for the standard A-100 modules and rubberized small-sized knobs are used. In return the front panel has 6 HP width only. The module is primarily planned for applications where only limited space is available.

Doepfer A-111-6 Miniature Synthesiser Voice Module
Cat: 731937 • View all Synth modules
 
Complete miniature monophonic synthesiser module - 10HP
Notes: VCO:

- Tune: manual tune control (with an internal jumper the range can be set to ~ +/-1 half an octave or ~ +/-2.5 octaves)
- Oct: range switch -1 / 0 / +1 octave
- Mod: modulation depth (attenuator wired to the Mod. socket)
- Dest: switch that is used to address the modulation to frequency modulation (position FM) or pulsewidth modulation (positon PM), in centre positon no modulation
- PW: manual pulsewidth control for rectangle waveform, PW can be also modulated by the Mod. input as mentioned above
- Wave: waveform switch (sawtooth / off / triangle), the sum of the waveform chosen by this switch and the rectangle is fed into the VCF (to turn the rectangle off the PW control has to be set fully CCW or fully CW)
- 1V/Oct. (socket): external CV input for VCO frequency (1V/octave)
- Access to internal bus CV (via jumper, optional, please remove the bus jumper if this feature is not used to avoid unwanted frequency modulation as then the unused CV line of the bus works as a kind of antenna)
- Triangle core VCO, frequency range about 32Hz ... 8kHz

Balance unit:

- The balance unit is made of two VCAs which are controlled by the sum of manual Balance control and the balance CV input in the opposite direction.
- The audio input of VCA1 is hard-wired to the VCO output, audio input 2 is connected to the socket Ext.In.
- The output of the balance unit is used as audio input for the VCF
- Bal.: manual balance control, fully CCW the internal VCO is used, fully CW the external signal (Ext.In) is used, at centre position both signals have about the same level
- CV Bal.: CV input for balance (range about 0...+5V)
- Ext. In: external audio input for VCA2, about 5 Vpp level required for similar loudness as the internal VCO
- This socket is normalled to the internal VCO suboctave f/2 signal (rectangle with half the frequency), if no external signal is applied the suboctave signal is used as the second signal for the balance unit

VCF:

- 24 dB low pass
- Frq: manual frequency control
- FM1: frequency modulation depth (attenuator wired to the VCF FM1 socket, the socket is normalled to the internal Envelope signal and then FM1 controls the modulation depth of the internal envelope applied to the filter)
- FM2 (socket) : second CV input for VCF without attenuator (about 1V/octave), can be used e.g. for VCF tracking by connecting the same CV which is used also for the VCO frequency
- Res: manual resonance control (up to self oscillation)
- If the VCO is turned off (waveform switch = centre position, pulsewidth control = fully CCW or CW) and the VCF resonance is set to maximum the module can be used as a sine oscillator, the tracking at socket VCF FM2 is about 1V/octave (not as precise as the VCO but much better than most other filters)
- ~ 11 octaves frequency range (~ 10 Hz ... 20kHz)

VCA:

- Gain: manual amplitude control (initial gain), can be used to open the VCA without envelope signal
- VCA (switch): used to switch between gate and envelope as control signal for the VCA, in centre position the VCA is not controlled by envelope or gate
- Note: when gate is used the VCA is controlled directly by the gate signal (i.e. hard on/off), this may lead to clicking noise under certain conditions (especially with low VCO/VCF frequencies)
- Special control scale: exponential scale in the range from about -20dB to -80/90dB, linear scale from about -20dB to 0dB
- Remark: this special control scale results in a loudness behaviour that is a bit different from pure linear or exponential VCAs
- Out: audio output of the module (= VCA output)

Envelope:

- Gate (socket): Gate input (min. +5V), can be normalled to the bus gate signal by means of a jumper
- Att: manual control for Attack
- D/R: manual control for Decay/Release
- Env. (switch): used to switch between A/D, ADSR and A/R mode of the envelope generator, in centre position (ADSR) the sustain level is fixed to about 50%
- Envelope (socket): envelope output (about +10V)
- CVT (socket): CV input for time control, by means of two internal jumpers one can select which time parameters are controlled by the CVT input (e.g. A only or D/R only or A/D/R) and in which direction (i.e. if an increasing CVT shortens or stretches the time parameter in question)
- Envelope LED display
- Attack time range: ~ 1ms ... 5 sec (can be extended by using the CVT input)
- Decay/Release time range: ~ 1ms ... 15 sec (can be extended by using the CVT input)

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.

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).

Low frequency oscillator featuring 5 different waveforms - 8HP
Notes: Module A-145 is a low frequency oscillator, which produces cyclical control voltages in a very wide range of frequencies. Five waveforms are available: sawtooth, inverted sawtooth, triangle, sine and square wave.

The LFO can be used as a modulation source for any number of modules - for instance modulating the pulse width or frequency of a VCO, modulation of the cut-off frequency of a VCF, or amplitude modulation with a VCA.

A three-way switch lets you select three frequency ranges, spanning from one cycle every several minutes at the lowest, to moderate audio frequency at the highest (about 4-5 kHz).

The LFO signal can also be synchronised, via the reset input.

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.

Voltage controlled sine-LFO with four separate, phase shifted outputs - 8HP
Notes: Module A-143-9 is a derivative of our planned thru-zero quadrature VCO. It is a voltage controlled sine LFO with 4 outputs. The phase shift between the outputs is 90 degrees. The sine shifted by 90 degrees is also called cosine, the sine shifted by 180 degrees is nothing but the inverted sine, and the sine by 90 degrees is nothing but the inverted cosine.

The frequency range is from some minutes to frequencies beyond audio with three ranges selected by a toggle switch:

- Switch position H: about 30 Hz ... 3.5 kHz with the manual frequency control ("Frq."), beyond 20 kHz with additional external CV
- Switch position M: about 1 Hz ... 150 Hz with the manual frequency control ("Frq.")
- Switch position L: about 0,1 Hz ... 10 Hz with the manual frequency control ("Frq."), down to several minutes with additional external CV

Two exponential frequency control inputs are available: CV1 without attenuator and CV2 with polarizer. Consequently the module can be used even as an experimental sine VCO but does not feature an exact 1V/oct CV input! The precision CV input will be left to the thru-zero quadrature VCO.

Two LEDs display the positive and negative share of the sine output.

The core of the module is a so-called quadrature circuit that generates a sine a cosine signal with very low distortion. The quality of the sine/cosine signals are much better than those generated by a waveform converter with a sawtooth or triangle signal as starting point.

The output levels are about 5 Vss (+/-2.5V) but can be adjusted internally by a trimming potentiometer (P5 "Shape").

Typical applications:

- External sine/cosine oscillator for the frequency shifter A-126
- Modulations with pure sine/cosine waveforms
- Quadrature/barberpole effects (e.g. with the voltage controlled mixer A-135)
- Experimental sine/cosine VCO (e.g. for FM sounds)

Many users suggested to add a common output level control, i.e. four VCAs with one common control (manual + CV without attenuator + CV with polarizer) for the output levels. This is why we also designed the Quad VCA module A-132-2 with the possibility of an internal default connection to the four outputs of the A-143-9 (no soldering required, short 10 pin flat cable with removable connectors on both ends).

The A-143-9 is also a meaningful addition for the Frequency Shifter module A-126. It enables frequency shifting even below 50 Hz generating e.g. these mellow beat sounds with a few Hz frequency shifting only. The following document describes how to connect the A-126 and the A-143-9: A126_A143_connection.pdf.

The thru zero version of the A-143-9 with temperature compensation is the module A-110-4.

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.

Versatile module that can also be used as a modulation device - 8HP
Notes: Module A-140-1 is an envelope generator, and, since it puts out control voltages, counts as one of the modulation devices in a modular system. As soon as the gate input receives sufficient voltage, the ADSR generates a variable voltage, changing in time, called an envelope. This varying voltage is output in normal (positive) and inverted form, and can be used, eg. for voltage controlled modulation of a VCO, VCF, or VCA, or for processing other modules' inputs and outputs.

The shape of the envelope is governed by four parameters: Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release.

The envelope is started (triggered) by a gate signal either from the INT.GATE voltage on the system bus, or, if a signal is put into it, from the gate input socket.

The envelope can also be re-triggered, i.e. start from scratch again, each time a trigger signal is sensed at the Retrig. input socket, when the gate is still open.

Module A-140 has available a three-position toggle switch to select one of three time ranges. The time ratios for the three ranges are about 1 : 20 : 1000. The absolute Attack times are about:

20uS ... 100ms (switch position L)
400uS ... 2s (switch position M)
20ms ... 120s (switch position H)
The Decay and Release times are about 3-4 times more. Because of the exponential slope and the gradual asymptotic approach to the zero level the exact specification of the decay and real times is a bit difficult.

The voltage ranges of the ADSR outputs are about 0 ... +8V for the two normal outputs and 0 ... -8V for the inverted output.

In combination with the Comparator module A-167 a free-running "ADSR-LFO" can be realized.

Voltage controlled envelope generator with decay parameter - 8HP
Notes: Module A-142-1 is a voltage controlled envelope generator. The only time parameter is decay (like TB303). Decay may be adjusted manually and via voltage control input (with attenuator). The envelope output is displayed with LED control. Additionally from the envelope signal a Gate signal and an inverse Gate signal with adjustable threshold is derived. LED control for Gate output. Thus one obtains a voltage controlled Gate additionally or alternatively to the envelope signal with voltage controlled duration.

The attack time is fixed to about 0.2 ms, the shortest decay time is about 2 ms. By changing the value of a capacitor the shortest time can be modified (details can be found here: A100_Capacitors.htm).

Typical applications: dynamic control of decay e.g. in combination with the Analog/Trigger Sequencer A-155, voltage controlled trigger delay functions (like A-162, but voltage controlled).

Voltage controlled envelope generator, standard edition - 14HP
Notes: The A-141-2 module is an ADSR envelope generator with voltage controlled attack, decay, sustain and release parameters. Other features include LFO functionality as well as digital end-of-attack and end-of-release outputs. Besides positive and inverted outputs there is an output with voltage controlled amplitude available.

Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release parameters of the A-141-2 can be adjusted manually as well as via control voltages. The CV inputs come equipped with attenuators. In addition, a Comm-CV socket was implemented. Control voltages fed to this input influence all time parameters (A, D and R) simultaneously. Thus, it is possible to make high pitched notes shorter and more percussive. - Just like the behaviour of many acoustic instruments. The time range of the envelope goes from 50 microseconds to six seconds. Using a toggle switch, it is possible to increase these values by a factor of ten (500 us to 60 s) or a factor of hundred (5 ms to 10 min). To activate the envelope, there are gate and retrigger inputs.

The A-141-2 is equipped with a normal and an inverted output. Both connectors work with a fixed level. Furthermore, there is a third, variable output. Here, before reaching the out socket, the envelope signal is fed to a voltage controlled VCA. - Perfect for velocity CV signals. A jumper on the circuit board allows you to choose between a unipolar and a bipolar mode of operation. Other jumpers make it possible to normalize the CV inputs.

Last but not least, there are two digital outputs called EOA and EOR, which emit a gate signal after the attack respectively release phase. This is useful for delayed triggering of other envelopes. By connecting EOA or EOR output to the gate input, you can make the A-141-2 oscillate like a LFO. Adjustments to the envelope times change the frequency and waveform. If you connect the Attack CV input to the inverted output or the Decay respectively Release CV input to the normal output, you can alter the curve characteristics.

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.

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

Dual crossfader module for voltage controlled morphing between two audio or CV signals
Notes: Module A-134-2 contains two identical voltage controlled crossfader units.

Each unit has two voltage controlled amplifiers (VCAs) with opposite control behaviour available. The outputs of the two VCAs are mixed together to obtain a common output. The behaviour of the control voltage inputs can be chosen with an internal jumper:

Symmetrical mode: If the corresponding jumper is not set both VCAs of the crossfader have the same 50% amplification with zero CV. If the applied CV becomes positive the amplification of VCA1 decreases and those of VCA2 increases in the same way. A negative CV has the opposite result. The CV voltage range to obtain the maximum/minimum positions of the crossfader is about -2.5....+2.5V. This mode is useful for bidirectional (i.e. positive and negative) control voltages, for example LFO or joy stick (adjusted to 0V CV in centre position).

Asymmetrical mode: If the corresponding jumper is set VCA2 is fully closed and VCA1 has full 100% amplification with zero CV. If the applied CV becomes positive the amplification of VCA1 decreases and those of VCA2 increases in the same way. The CV voltage range to obtain the maximum/minimum positions of the crossfader is about 0...+5V. A negative CV has no function in this mode. This mode is useful for unidirectional (i.e. only positive) control voltages, for example ADSR, ribbon controller or Theremin control voltage.

The CV input of the upper unit (CV1) is normalled to the CV input of the lower unit (CV2). I.e. if no plug is inserted to CV2 the CV input of the upper unit (CV1) also controls the lower unit.

The second signal input of the upper unit (In1B) is normalled to the first signal input of the lower unit (In2A). I.e. if no plug is inserted into In2A the signal In1B is used as the first signal input of the second unit.

As the inputs and outputs are DC coupled the module can be used for both audio and control voltage signal processing.

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.

Multi-function module with LFO, switchable VCA, & VC delay - 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.

Dual envelope controlled VCA - 8HP
Notes: Module A-142-2 contains two envelope-controlled VCAs behind a front panel with 8 HP only. Each of the two sub-units is the combination of a simple AD/ADSR/AR envelope generator and a VCA. The type of envelope can be selected by means of a toggle switch:

- AD: Attack-Decay
- AR: Attack-Release
- ADSR: Attack-Decay-Sustain-Release with the limitation that Decay Time = Release Time and fixed Sustain level (factory setting 50%)

Each sub-unit provides these controls and in/outputs:

- LED control (envelope display)
- Attack (A), manual control
- Decay/Release (D/R), manual control
- Mode switch (AD, AR, ADSR)
- Audio level control (small control without knob)
- CVT Input (CVT = CV Time)
- CV Ducking input
- Attenuator for CVT (small control without knob)
- Gate Input
- Manual Gate (momentary switch)
- Audio Input
- Audio Output

The Envelope Output of version 1 has been cancelled for the benefit of the new CV Duck input. But there is an internal pin header available that has available the envelope signal (0...+10V) and the CV input of the VCA (0...+10V). Ex works the pins are shortened by a jumper but can be used for modifications (envelope output, VCA CV input).

By means of two internal jumpers for each sub-unit one can select which parameter(s) are controlled by the CVT input (e.g. D+R only or A only or A+D+R) and in which direction (i.e. if an increasing CVT shortens or stretches the time parameter in question). Two more jumpers are used for the optional bus access to the gate signal of the bus for each envelope.

CV Duck is an additional control input for the VCA that can be used to mute the VCA by means of an external control voltage. Beyond about +5V CV Duck the VCA is fully muted, in the range 0...+5V there is only a partial muting. Circuitry-wise the CV Duck signal is amplified by two, inverted and added to the internal envelope signal (0...+10V). The sum of both signals is used to control the VCA.

The time range of Attack/Decay/Release is about 1ms to 30s (can be modified by changing the value of a capacitor).

Applications:

Virtually in each patch one or more envelope/VCA combos together with a sound source are very useful, mainly for percussive sounds. Voltage control of the times and the ducking animates each performance.

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.

Quad voltage-controlled mixer with 4 individual VCA's - 18HP
Notes: Module A-135-1 is a quad voltage controlled mixer. It is made of 4 independent linear VCA's. The VCA outputs are mixed to a common output. For each VCA the following inputs and controls are available: audio input with attenuator, control voltage input with attenuator, gain (pre-amplification). The VCA's are realized with high-quality CEM VCA's (CEM3381 for version 1 and SSM2164 for version 2).

Applications: voltage controlled mixing of up to 4 audio signals with separate control voltages (e.g. delivered by LFO's, ADSR's, Random, Shepard generator, MIDI-to-CV interface or other control voltage sources). In connection with the Morphing-Controller A-144 the soft fade-over of 4 audio signals with only one control voltage is possible.

Inputs: 4 x Signal in, 4 x CV In
Output: Signal Out, Version 2 in addition: 4 x Single Out

Low frequency oscillator with adjustable waveform - 8HP
Notes: Module A-146 (LFO 2) is a Low Frequency Oscillator, which produces periodic control voltages over a wide range of frequencies.

The LFO can be used as a modulation source for a series of modules (for instance pulse width and/or frequency modulation of a VCO, modulation of a VCF cut-off frequency, amplitude modulation with a VCA).

Three outputs are available, with different waveforms: sawtooth / triangle; square wave, and positive-voltage square wave.

The waveform is continuously adjustable from rising sawtooth, through triangle to falling sawtooth. The same control affects the pulse width of the square wave.

A three-way switch can select one of three frequency ranges, spanning from one cycle every few minutes, at the lowest, up to audio frequency at the highest.

Four voltage controlled LFO's/ VCO's with triangle & rectangle outputs in one single module - 22HP
Notes: Module A-143-4 is a fourfold voltage controlled low frequency oscillator (LFO). As the frequency range includes moderate audio frequencies it can be used as a four-fold VCO too.

- Four independent VCLFOs/VCOs with triangle core
- Frequency range switches: low (bottom position) = LFO mode, high (top position) = VCO mode
- Two frequency control CV inputs for each unit
- CV1 without attenuator (~ 1V/oct)
- CV2 with attenuator
- Manual frequency control
- Internal jumpers for the frequency range of the manual frequency controls:
- Jumper not installed: ~ +/- 1 octave range (mainly for VCO applications)
- Jumper installed: ~ +/- 5 octaves range (mainly for VCLFO applications)
- Sync inputs: Combined Reset/Direction inputs for unit #1 - #3 / Separate Reset and Direction inputs for unit #4 (normalled sockets, i.e. Reset is connected to Direction if the Direction socket is unused) / Up/both/down direction switch for unit #4, for technical details concerning the Reset and Direction function please refer to the sketch below
- Triangle and rectangle outputs for each unit
- Typ. output voltage range -5V ... +5V for both outputs (i.e. about 10 Vpp, symmetrical with reference to 0 V)
- Red/yellow LED displays for the triangle outputs (red = negative output voltage, yellow = positive output voltage)
- Common control section with two CV inputs and manual control (these inputs and controls affect the frequency of all four units)
- Sum outputs for triangle and rectangle with red/yellow LED displays
- Optional ultra-low frequency mode: for this a negative voltage can be applied via a jumper internally to the CV2 input of each unit and the common section (i.e. a negative voltage is normalled to the socket CV2 in question). Then the CV2 - - Attenuator control works as a negative frequency control (i.e. turning up this control lowers the frequency). Herewith LFO periods up to about one hour (or even more) are possible.
- Optional CV bus access via jumper (i.e. the module can pick up the CV from the A-100 bus, e.g. generated by a Midi/CV or USB/CV interface A-190-x or a bus access module A-185-1/2), if the jumper is installed the bus CV affects all four units as the bus CV is added to the CV generated by the common control section
- Typ. frequency range: < 0.001 Hz (~ one hour, LFO mode with ultra-low option) ... 15 kHz (VCO mode with installed frequency range jumpers for the manual frequency controls)
- Heat-up time: ~ 15 minutes (required to heat-up the main circuit by the affixed oven)

The module was planned mainly as a quad VCLFO. But we added a range switch (nothing but a switch for two different capacitors) so that even audio frequencies are possible and the module can be used as VCO with some restrictions too. Because of the closeness of the main circuitry (i.e. four VCO cores within less ~ 1 square millimetre) the oscillators may lock if the frequencies are very close to each other and the VCO frequencies interact marginally. If a high quality quad VCO is required the A-111-4 is recommended as this module has four separate VCO circuits available.

The reset circuitry is optimized for the LFO mode. As it takes some time to discharge the oscillator capacitor the discharge time had to be chosen so that the capacitor is fully discharged in LFO mode. In the high range (where a much smaller capacitor is used) this will cause a zero state duration in the 0.3 ms range if the oscillator is synced (during this time the capacitor is shortened for discharge).
The control scale of the inputs "CV1" is about 1V/octave. To improve the behaviour in the VCO mode a tempco circuit is used to keep the temperature of the exponential converter at a fixed temperature (similar to the tempco option of the DIY SYNTH). That way the frequency of the VCOs (and even the VCLFOs) is nearly independent from the environment temperature. But the accuracy (1V/octave scale and temperature compensation) is not as precise as for the dedicated VCOs A-110 and A-111-1.

Quad Decay featuring four simple envelope generators - 8HP
Notes: Module A-142-4 contains four simple envelope generators. The only time parameter is Decay and can be adjusted manually by means of the Dec. control in the range 2 ms ... 2 seconds. The attack time can be adjusted internally by means of a separate trimming potentiometer for each sub-unit in the range 1 ms ... 15 ms. The factory setting is about 3 ms. This is the attack time of the TB303. Each envelope output has a LED control available. The trigger inputs are normalled (1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 4).

Suggestions for modifications:

Each sub-unit has a pin header with two pins available. When the two pins are shortened (e.g. by means of a jumper or a toggle switch connected to the two pins) the corresponding sub-unit changes to a loop mode. In this mode the unit is triggered by itself like an LFO..

By changing the value of a capacitor the time range can be modified (e.g. 0.2 ms ... 0.2 seconds or 20 ms ... 20 seconds)

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.

Compact module for modulating four parameters from a single CV signal - 8HP
Notes: Module A-144 is a control voltage modifier that is used in combination with the voltage controlled mixer A-135 in the first place. From a linear increasing voltage at the input the module derives four displaced triangle output voltages. When these 4 outputs are connected to the four control voltage inputs of the A-135 one obtains a fading over of the four A-135 audio inputs ("morphing"). The Morphing can be controlled manual and modulated with an external control voltage (e.g. from LFO, ADSR, Random, MIDI-to-CV, Theremin, Light-to-CV, analogue sequencer) with attenuator.

Applications: voltage controlled morphing of 4 audio signals in combination with A-135, e.g. morphing between the 4 waveform outputs of an VCA (sawtooth/ rectangle/ triangle/ sine) or the 4 filter outputs of the multimode filter A-121 (lowpass/ bandpass/ highpass/ notch) or the 4 filter outputs of the A-105 (6/12/18/24dB) to obtain a filter with voltage controlled slope.

When an audio source (e.g. sawtooth, triangle or sine of a VCO) is used as CV input signal the module can be used also as Waveshaper. The four A-144 outputs can be mixed e.g. by means of a Polarizing Mixer A-138c with adjustable level and polarity.

- Inputs: CV In
- Outputs: CV Out 1, 2, 3, 4
- Controls: Manual Morphing, CV attenuator

Reproduction of the legendary British diode lowpass filter - 8HP
Notes: Module A-102 is a reproduction of the legendary low pass filter design that uses diodes in the filter stage as frequency controlling elements - resulting in "strange" resonance behaviour and frequency response, as resonance and frequency are not independent from another.

As for the rest, the A-102 is identical to the A-120 Moog low pass filter, the A-103 (18dB TB303 Filter) i.e. the same controls, inputs and outputs. Only the filter sound is different:

- Manual control of filter frequency
- 3 CV inputs (CV1, CV2, CV3), 2 of them with attenuator (CV2, CV3)
- Input level control
- Resonance control up to self-oscillation (depends upon the frequency setting for the A-102)

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.

Vintage edition with black faceplate and custom knobs.

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.
