New Wavefonix W314 Modular Synthesizer In the Works

via Wavefonix

"We're pleased to announce the release of our first complete modular system.

Our W314 Modular Synthesizer is perfect for the beginner, looking to delve into the realm of modular synthesis, or equally the music producer looking for a compact system for the road, or to add another voice to their existing modular system.

The system is housed in a 3U, 104HP skiff, finished in premium quality wood. Also included is a premium integrated PSU from Konstant Lab.

A versatile range of modules are included for a wide sound palette, including:

1 x Buffered Multiple (4x4)
1 x 3340 Dual Voltage-Controlled Oscillator (VCO)
1 x 1847 Wavetable VCDO
1 x 3-Channel Stereo Panning Mixer
1 x 2140 Low-Pass Filter (LPF)
1 x 3310 Envelope Generator (EG)
1 x 3360 Dual Linear VCA / 3360 Dual Exponential VCA
1 x 3310 VC Envelope Generator (VCEG)
1 x Noise Generator (NG)
1 x Ring Modulator (RM)
1 x VCD Low-Frequency Oscillator (VCDLFO)

4x4 Buffered Multiple
This is a premium, buffered version of our passive 4x4 multiple, featuring four groups of buffered multiples; each group having one input and three outputs.

3340 Dual Voltage-Controlled Oscillator (VCO)
This 3340 Dual Voltage-Controlled Oscillator (VCO) has a smaller footprint per VCO than our standard 3340 VCO module; making it suitable for cases where space is more limited, or where you want to maximise functionality per HP.

1847 Wavetable VCDO
The 1847 Wavetable VCDO is a versatile and easy-to-use voltage-controlled 8-bit wavetable oscillator. The main oscillator has 16 waveforms arranged as a wavetable and a sub-oscillator also provides 8 waveforms; each selectable at one of four octaves (+1, unison, -1 or -2).

3-Channel Stereo Panning Mixer
This audio mixer is perfect for adding stereo and panning capabilities to your modular system. It serves as an output module for reducing modular-level signals down to line level when connecting to an external device, such as a mixing console etc.

2140 Low-Pass Filter (LPF)
The 2140 Low-Pass Filter (LPF) uses the SSI2140 IC i.e. the official successor to the legendary SSM2040 IC; considered by many to be one of the best sounding filters of all time.

3310 Envelope Generator (EG)
Featuring the AS3310 IC (based on the classic CEM3310 IC), the 3310 Envelope Generator (EG) offers a simple, but effective four-stage design; ideal for modulating VCAs, filters and other modules.

3360 Dual Linear VCA
Featuring the AS3360 IC (based on the classic CEM3360 IC), this module features two linear response Voltage-Controlled Amplifiers (VCAs); suitable for both audio and CV signals.

3360 Dual Exponential VCA
Featuring the AS3360 IC (based on the classic CEM3360 IC), this module features two exponential response Voltage-Controlled Amplifiers (VCAs); suitable for mainly audio signals. However, it can still be used with CV signals.

3310 VC Envelope Generator (VCEG)
The 3310 VC Envelope Generator (VCEG) is a more advanced version of our standard 3310 Envelope Generator (EG). It offers the same four-stage design, but with dedicated CV inputs for attack, decay, sustain and release.

Noise Generator (NG)
Our Noise Generator (NG) module provides three different noise sources; including white, pink and random LF (Low Frequency) noise. This allows for a wide range of sonic and modulation possibilities when combined with other modules e.g. white noise can be used to produce hi-hat sounds or the random LF noise can be input into a sample and hold module to produce random, retro-style beeps etc.

Ring Modulator (RM)
This module is a four-quadrant multiplier that produces distinct alien and bell type sounds.

VCD Low-Frequency Oscillator (VCDLFO)
This versatile VCDLFO adds a lot of powerful modulation options to your modular system. Whilst most LFOs include just the standard and rather boring waveforms, such as triangle and ramp; the VCDLFO takes things further and can generate eight 16-bit waveforms; including two different types of random waves; essentially making it an LFO and random voltage generator in one module.
