The Analogue Systems French Connection

YouTube Preview Image

In this video, Frankie Bellani demonstrates using the Analogue Systems French Connection to control a Dotcom System 110 modular synthesizer.

The French Connection is a control voltage keyboard controller that was inspired by the Ondes Martenot. It features a ring controller that allows for continuous pitch control.

The French Connection doesn’t make sounds on its own, but is used to control analog synths that support CV control.

Details on the French Connection are available at the Analogue Solutions site.

Sneak Preview: The Dewanatron Triple Slice Eurorack Synth Module

YouTube Preview Image

This is a preview, via bigcitymusic, of the new Dewanatron Triple Slice synth module:

Here is the incomparable Dewanatron Triple Slice eurorack module being modulated with the Kilpatrick K4815 Pattern Generator. We start out with the SINE VOLUME on the Triple Slice all the way down, then push it up full.

We are controlling the amount of STIR in the Triple Slice with the beautifully illuminated mod wheel on the Analogue Systems rs600 Performance Wheels module, which controls the amount of LFO. We start the video with no STIR, then add a little at slow and medium speed. The Triple Slice sounds beautiful straight, but really comes alive with a bit of STIR added!

Analogue Systems Control Voltage Recorder Module

Analogue Systems has announced a new control voltage recorder module:

This module will re create the KS section of the legendary EMS synthi AKS when in Real Time mode.In Step Time mode it will emulate the Roland SH101 sequencer section. In addition the module is a 4 channel cv recorder with non volatile memory contained in 12 banks.

We are working on the possibility of layering up to 4 tracks of recorder cv data but this spec may vary subject to change

The control voltage recorder is officially “in the works”. We’ll have more details as they become available.

The Analogue Systems System 8500 Modular Synthesizer


Great Bolshy Yarblockos!

Big City Music just received this awe-inspiring Analogue Systems System 8500 modular synthesizer, with a double sequencer cabinet and and extra top cabinet yesterday.

This thing costs more than a car and would probably necessitate an addition to your house…but it would be worth it, don’t you think?

Saturday Synth Porn: This is a pretty sweet room corner, featuring an ARP 2500 with the Analogue Systems TH48 Analogue Sequencer:

Check the same knobs used on the sequencer as on the ARP 2500 modular synthesizer. Knobs should still be for sale at Analogue Systems.

WMD Geiger Counter Eurorack Module -Sequencing Wavetables

via bigcitymusic:

The WMD Geiger Counter in eurorack has finally arrived!

This is a simple squarewave drone from a Cwejman VCO-6. We are sequencing the wavetables of the Geiger with an Analogue Systems rs200. Partway through we add in another sequencer row modulating the sample rate which has an attenuator. Awesome!

Analogue Systems rs430 Distortion Module

This is a very short demo of the Analogue Systems rs430 Distortion Module.

via bigcitymusic:

First dry, then wet…This cool little module is based on the classic Univox Super-Fuzz pedal. The Super-Fuzz is considered by many to be the holy grail of fuzz pedals. We’re using the Cwejman VCO-2RM oscillator, the ADSR-VC2, the INS-2MX and the MMF-1 multimode filter. The rs430 has CV input for distortion amount and dry/wet mix. The rs430 uses two germanium diodes to produce the unique squarewave clipping and — it — sounds — sweet!
