Somatic Circuits has introduced the Voice Expander Module to its Luna Modular line of Eurorack format synth modules. The Voice Expander Module (VEM) provides the core element for a synthesizer voice.
The module is comprised of 3 sections;
- VCO – Voltage Controlled Oscillator
- VCF – Voltage Controlled Filter
- VCA – Voltage Controlled Amplifier
This module has been designed to provide a standard synthesizer signal path. Both the VCO and VCF have a normalized output to allow isolation of each section for external use or processing to be returned back to the module through the Mix-Inputs.
The VCO is a full range oscillator sporting Saw and Pulse waveforms. The VCF is a 2pole Multi-Pass filter with self-oscillation at high resonance. The VCA is clean and fast with zero CV feed through.
The Voice Expander Module is priced at AUD$295. See the Somatic Circuits site for details.
