Orgon Modular

Title link takes you to shots pulled from this auction. Acution notes below.

"Orgon Systems Enigiser Modular Synthesizer

This is 1 of only 6 pre-production synthesizers hand built by Geoff Waterston. Also features modules that were never commercially released.

Consisting of 21 modules based around the amazing Orgon Systems Enigiser
3 X Voltage Controlled Oscillators

Rock stable design. No temperature drift. Excellent scaleaccuracy-upto 10 octaves.
Unique, rich and powerful sound quality.
Able to hold a true zero beat for hours.
Coarse and fine tune controls.
Sawtooth, sine, triangle and PWM waveform outputs.
Exceptionally accurate 1 volt per octave tracking. (0v to 10v).
Exponential modulation input.
Linear FM input
Pulsewidth modulation input (0% to 100% duty cycle).
PWM Shape control (0% to 100% duty cycle).
Oscillator sync (Absolutely awsome sounding!)

1 X Enigiser Filter
Variable multipole filter design unique to Orgon Systems.
Taken directly from the Orgon Systems Enigiser Synthesizer.
Voltage Controlled Resonance
2 X signal inputs
2 X control voltage inputs (filter frequency).
1 X resonance control voltage input.
25 switchable filter responses!!
6 dB oct lowpass
12 dB oct lowpass
18 dB oct lowpass
24 dB oct lowpass
Phase shifter 1
6 dB oct highpass
6 dB oct bandpass
12 dB oct bandpass
18 dB oct bandpass
Phase shifter and bandpass
6dB notch
6 dB lowpass scattered poles
12 dB lowpass scattered pole
18 dB lowpass scattered pole
Narrow phase shift

2 X Voltage Controlled Amplifier with Log & Lin Response
High spec VCA with logarithmic & linear switchable responses.
2 signal inputs with gain controls.
2 control voltage inputs with gain controls.
Initial gain control.
Will work with audio and control voltages (AC or DC).

1 X Multimode VCF
Orgon Systems take on the classic state variable filter.
Fully resonant to oscillation.
4 simultaneous outputs (lowpass, highpass, bandpass & notch).
2 signal inputs with gain controls.
2 control voltage inputs with gain control (cutoff frequency).
Cutoff and resonance controls.
Extremely Fat and energetic sounding filter.

6 X ADSR Envelope Generator
Ultra fast response <1ms
Full ADSR response
Gait input & gait through sockets
Manual trigger button
Attack state gate output with led (useful for gate delays or multi-stage envelopes)
Decay state gate output with led (useful for gate delays multi-stage envelopes)

Release state gate output (useful for gate delays multi-stage envelopes)

3 x Dual LFO
0.001 Hz to 300 Hz
2 rate controls
2 rate led's
2 shape controls (pulsewidth & ramp up triangle ramp down)
2 square / pulse outputs
2 triangle / ramp outputs

1 x Noise Generator
White, red, pink & blue outputs

1 x Mixer
4 signal or control voltage inputs
Works with AC or DC
Output level control

1 x Wave Animator
This design is unique to Orgon Systems and allows control of positive & negative waveshapes with clipping & offset manipulation. You can also subtract the output signal from the original input signal.
Drive control (controls the amount of clipping)
Positive & negative shape controls (controls the amount of waveform clipping & offset)
Offset CV (controls wave symmetry with a bi-polar control voltage)
Subtracts the output signal from the original input signal.
This unique module is very hard to sum up in words as it treads into sonic territory not discovered before! Hearing really is believing. Can actually make 1 oscillator sound like 3 or turn a sign wave into a square wave and pulsewidth modulate it at the same time or chop the top off triangle waves and subtract them from the original signal. You get the idea anything is possible.

1 x Multi Connection
3 rows of 5 multi connections

  1. Im wonder how to get ahold of the ordon synth person. I bought two off ebay from him that were never delivered. My contact has changed it 714-795-9713 tom street
