Intellijel Intros Atlantis Eurorack Dual Oscillator Subtractive Synth Voice

intellijel-Atlantis

2014 NAMM Show: Intellijel has introduced the Atlantis – a fully patchable dual oscillator analog subtractive synth voice in Eurorack format.

The Atlantis is heavily inspired by the architecture and sound of the classic Roland SH-101. However, the Atlantis uses triangle core VCOs (based on the Dixie core) instead of Saw core, which respond much more musically to FM. The modulation oscillator can be used as an LFO or VCO (audio rate) and both track very precisely over 8 or more octaves.

Here’s a video introduction to the Intellijel Atlantis: Continue reading

  • MOD Vco can be linked to the primary VCO pitch CV.
  • Modulation oscillator switchable from LFO to VCO
  • Filter is multimode, 2/4pole switchable and has a special LP boost mode
  • Filter allows for selection of inverted ADSR mod source
  • Filter tracks 1V/oct
