Dinsync Gilbert In Black - Roland Inspired Mono Synth

via this auction

"Here is a freshly complete Gilbert, a best of inspired by Roland mono synthesizer.

The circuit blocks take inspiration from :-
Curtis CEM3340 oscillator
MC-202 style formfactor
SH-101 style noise oscillator
MC-202 Sub Oscillator
SH09/Jupiter 4 (rev 1) style VCF
SH09 style interface layout
Features include:-
I/O (3.5mm jacks)
1v per octave cv/gate inputs
Raw oscillator outputs (saw, square, triangle, sub)
Hard Sync
Exponential FM
Linear FM
CV over VCF
External input (to mixer/vcf) with envelope follower
Audio output on both 3.5mm and 6.3mm jacks.

I have added mods based on the Isak Mods, these include :-
Increase VCF ENV amount
Increase VCF LFO amount
Increase VCO modulation amount
Increase Vpp at the output
These are not mind bending mods but give a better range for the modulation.

My builds come with the Black Christian Hartig/Kumptronics case, PSU and manual.

From the RE303/Dinsync website :-

'Gilbert is a small format analog monosynth inspired by what we consider to be some of the best era of Roland™ machines from the late 70s/early 80s. It has a nice “rubbery” tone that will be familiar to all acid aficionados and makes a great supporting voice for your RE-303. Gilbert can be thought of in a couple of ways. On one hand you have a fully fledged analog monosynth and on the other hand due to its I/O connections you could think of Gilbert as a eurorack module in a synthesizer format. Of course combinations of both also work, anything is possible.'"
