"What is System 3? A System 2 on steroids? The illegitimate lovechild of System 1 and System 2? A modulation lover’s paradise? Or is it all of those?

It won′t surprise you to learn that our designs are heavily influenced by whatever we were playing with at the time.

For example, System 1, our stereo-friendly system, was birthed during late night sessions with the M/S Matrix, VC Panning Amplifier, Dual State Variable VCF and Dual Delay prototypes.

System 2 came from toying with those budget analogue mono−synths flooding the market, and dreaming of one with premium components, a well−spaced layout, and a lifespan measured in decades, not months.

System 3? Well, System 3 came from playing about with System 1 and System 2 in conjunction with our new Mini MIDI module. Mini MIDI′s ability to convert MIDI CCs directly into modular friendly CC, with all the control that offered over modulation, set us down an addictively creative path, and we knew we had to share it.

System 3 very much has the mono−synth vibe of System 2, coupled with some of the stereo−tricks of System 1, but it′s really about modulation and experimentation."
