Doepfer launches a complete synthesizer-voice-in-a-box module. The A-111-6 houses a classic VCO-VCF-VCA signal path and comes with its own envelope. This complete synth voice is only 10TE / HP wide – typical for the new Doepfer slim design.
4 aspects of the synth voice are noteworthy. First, the slim, yet comprehensive VCO (sawtooth / triangle / pulse with PWM), second, Balance (mix of VCO / Audio IN) with CV-input, third, the VCF with resonance up to self-oscillation (VCF usable as a sine oscillator), and fourth, the possibility of voltage control of individual envelope parameters.
Also remarkable: The price. The module costs approx. 180 Euros (silver version) / approx. 190 Euros (black version). Not bad for a complete synth voice.
A-174-4 is a three-dimensional joy stick module. One of the exciting things about this is the fact that – in addition to the X / Y / Z outputs – the individual quadrants Q1 / Q2 / Q3 / Q4 are also available. The module will be released in spring 2020.
Finally, a few modules for special applications. A-130-8 is an 8-channel VCA / mixer, A-133-2 is a dual voltage controlled VCA with special possibilities and A-183-4 is a level shifter / trigger buffer (for adjusting / raising CV / trigger signals). These modules will also be available in spring 2020.
