Pittsburgh Modular Foundation 2.0

Pittsburgh Modular Foundation 2.0

The Foundation is a fully modular, eurorack, analog synthesizer.  A patchable system styled after the great monosynths of the past with no hardwired signal path or fixed voice architecture to restrict creativity.  Driven by two wide range analog oscillators the Foundation produces a huge, warm sound that can’t be matched by digital or VST synths.  All of the elements of a classic voltage controlled synthesizer are available as an open, patchable, modern synth.

The Foundation is a “complete voice”. It contains all the modules needed to produce a wide variety of complex sounds such as monster analog bass, cutting leads, evolving pads, and short percussive hits.  All of which can be controlled directly using the Foundations’ 42 knobs and switches then played with any standard Midi controller.  The Midi module included in the Foundation allows for monophonic / duophonic / and dual monophonic patching for maximum flexability.

Es muss Mitte der 70er Jahre gewesen sein, als ich das erste Mal “Switched on Bach” von Walter/Wendy Carlos gehört habe. Seitdem haben Elektronische Musik und Synthesizer nichts an Faszination und Vielfalt in ihren Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten für mich verloren. Der Haptik wegen und wohl auch bedingt durch meine Wurzeln, gebe ich nach wie vor Hardware den Vorzug, selbst wenn die Qualität so mancher Plug-Ins mittlerweile beeindruckend ist. Die Entwicklungen der letzten Jahre haben eine neue Generation an Klangschaffenden und Musikern hervorgebracht, die wie es scheint nun wiederum der Faszination der alten analogen Instrumente erliegen. Genau in diesem Spannungsfeld soll sich der Inhalt unseres Magazins wieder finden. ________________________________________________________ It must have been the middle of the 70′s when I first heard “Switched on Bach” by Walter/Wendy Carlos. Since then, electronic music and synthesizers have lost none of their fascination and variety in their means of expression for me. Because of the tangibility of it and probably also due to my roots, I still prefer hardware, even if the quality of some plug-ins is now impressive. The developments of recent years have spawned a new generation of sound professionals and musicians, who seem to again succumb to the fascination of old analog instruments. It is precisely in this area of tension that the content of our magazine can be found.
