FUSEBOX – a 3-VCO-Synth by Analogue Solutions

FUSEBOX is a compact true analog mono synth in a neat, smart, small package. We call it “little brother” of the POLYMATH. Aside from the MIDI chip (which has to be digital), everything else is totally analog using real transistors and op-amps. The synth has been designed by Tom Carpenter, CEO of Analogue Solutions, a musician and a big fan of electronic music. He knows how to program a synth and what should be expected.

FUSEBOX was not designed by an engineer or steered by committee or men in suits. This is a musician’s instrument …


FUSEBOX features:

  • 3 VCOs
  • VCO 2 and VCO 3 can be used as LFOs
  • Sub-Oscillator
  • White Noise
  • Mixer with MUTE switches
  • 12db MultiMode VCF – LP / NOTCH / HP and BP
    (similar to the Oberheim SEM filter design)
  • VCA
  • LFO
  • 2 ADSR
  • MIDI In, Out, Thru
  • Interval Generator (VCO transposer, 6 programmable pitches)
  • Arpeggiator (can be used as a 16-note Sequencer)
  • Patternator (a blend of Sequencer and Rhythm Generator)


Unique artistic case design. 5 minutes with a screwdriver and the plan can be flipped, allowing the synth to be laid flat.


True retro analog voice and modulation circuits give an authentic retro sound.  A warm sound full of character.

“Es genügt, einen Ton schön zu spielen” sagte der Komponist Arvo Pärt im Jahre 2005. Diese Aussage ist ebenso einfach wie ich auch exzellent: Es braucht kein Meer an Tönen, denn entscheidend ist der Klang. Dass so mancher Vintage-Synthesizer der 70er und 80er Jahre teils unerreicht hochwertige Klänge liefert, steht außer Frage. Doch tatsächlich leben wir “heute” in einer nahezu perfekten Zeit. Einerseits hat man – mehr oder weniger – noch Zugriff auf die Vintage Analogen, andererseits wird auch bei Neugeräten die wichtige Komponente des hochwertigen Klanges wieder zunehmend berücksichtigt. Doepfer, Cwejman, Synthesizers.com, MacBeth, Moog, GRP, Studio Electronics, COTK, John Bowen und andere Hersteller bauen hervorragende Synthesizer, die den “Klassikern” in nichts nachstehen. All diesen (alten wie neuen) “großartigen” Instrumenten ist Great Synthesizers gewidmet. _________________________________________________________ In 2005 composer Arvo Pärt said: “Playing one tone really well is enough”. In other words, it is sufficient to play one tone 'beautifully'. I agree with that. All musical efforts are focused on the sound itself. Although I studied classical music (piano and drums), it’s the electronic sound that inspires me. Synthesizers are the epitome of new sounds and exciting tonal spheres. Today, many companies produce high-quality - excellent! - synthesizers: Doepfer, Cwejman, MacBeth, Moog, GRP, Synthesizers.com, COTK, Studio Electronics, John Bowen and others. It's their products I'm really interested in ... apart from Vintage Synthesizers, which I have been collecting for 20 years. Subsequent to our former websites Bluesynths and Blogasys, Peter Mahr and I have now created GreatSynthesizers. We hope you like it.
