Doepfer Introducing New Eurorack Modules At Superbooth 17

Doepfer has announced that they will be introducing new Eurorack gear at Superbooth 17, scheduled for April 20-22, 2017 in Berlin, and that they are celebrating their 25th anniversary.

Doepfer will be featuring:

  • A-111-4 Quad VCO – The A-111-4 contains four precision VCOs with 10 octaves range and has individual controls, inputs and outputs for each VCO available as well as common controls. After all the A-111-4 is very similar to four A-111-3 with built in output mixers for the three waveforms and a common control unit for all VCOs.
  • A-190-5 Polyphonic Midi/USB-CV Interface  – The A-190-5 is an Midi/USB interface that generates a Gate signal and four control voltages to control up to four VCOs and associated modules like envelope generators, filters and VCAs for polyphonic sound generation. The A-190-5 will be equipped with different polyphonic, duophonic, paraphonic and monophonic modes which are selected by means of a view menu buttons and the LC display.
  • A-173-1/2 Micro Keybord transmitter/receiver  – A-173-1/2 is a module combo that is used to generate a manually controlled 1V/Octave CV signal and up to 15 manually controlled gate/trigger signals. Typical applications are the transposition of a sequence by means of the CV output (without the need of an external keyboard and CV interface) and the manual generation of gate/trigger signals for start, stop, envelope generator triggering and other trigger tasks.
  • A-138s Mini Stereo Mixer – 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.
  • A-180-9 Multicore – The A-180-9 is used to connect up to 12 signals between two different cases by means of one standard Sub-D cable only. That way it’s possible to pre-patch e.g. two (monster) cases and connect all signals, that are required in both cases (e.g. clock, start/stop, master CV) by one cable only instead of 12 individual patches.
  • A-135-4 Voltage Controlled Performance Mixer Modules  – The A-135-4 module series form a fully voltage controlled performance mixer and can be combined with the manually controlled performance mixer modules A-138o/p.
  • A-110-6 Trapezoid Thru Zero Quadrature VCO – The A-110-6 is a new VCO design and uses a
    Quadrature Trapezoid as standard waveform. In addition to this unique waveform combo it also offers linear thru zero frequency modulation and quadrature outputs (i.e. two trapezoids with 90 degrees phase shift). The two basic waveforms are called Trapezoid Sine (TRASIN) and Trapezoid Cosine (TRACOS). The other standard waveforms (triangle, sine, saw, rectangle) are derived from the quadrature trapezoids by means of internal waveshapers.
  • A-150-8 Octal Manual/Voltage Controlled Programmable Switches – The 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.
  • Low-cost ‘monster synth’ Eurorack cases.

Details on the new modules are available at the Doepfer site.

    1. Yeah, there is a site with virtual patches, but I could never get an oscillator to actually make sound. Youtube videos are equally arcane.

      Someone who owns a Eurorack and can explain it in layman’s terms can def make bank on some proper tutorials.

      1. Try Raul’s world of synths. Once you get used to the fact that he explains in minute detail you will learn a lot, I did.

      2. Start with Allen Strange. Get hold of a copy of his book Electronic Music. It is a key to unlock the world of modular synthesizers.
