Analog Chimera : ½ ARP + ½ Moog (MachineRoom Trilobite)


video upload by Valmont

"Unconcise demo of a Trilobite triple VCO (Moog 204D) processed by an og ARP Axxe mkII (in mkI cabinet), with that often neglected 4075 VCF... which does sound exceptionally well?! This ARP is considered for sale though :) For the FM patches I plugged one of the VCOs output into the FM in of one other. And the retrig mode it's the Arp Repeat switch enabled!

0:00 - raw audio ahead
0:12 - solid PW 1
0:23 - solid PW 2
0:34 - soft 1
0:46 - soft 2
0:57 - arp PW
1:16 - soft 3
1:30 - arp triangles
1:41 - arp sawtooths
1:57 - arp FM 1
2:13 - arp FM 2
2:29 - arp FM 3
2:50 - HFO FM
3:23 - overdriven VCF

Sorry for the weird video edit with those scopes surrounding the Arp, I had a terrible mess around which I didn't consider until I finished the video... Too late ha, I only found that way to hide it x))"

"TRILOBITE is a triple saw-core oscillator analogue module inspired by the original Moog schematics and made with thru-hole components only

The module features:

– 4 octave ranges

– 3 waveforms (triangle, square, saw),

– UNISON (FINE) control with a range of +/- 12 semi-tones

– Independent LIN FM and PWM inputs with attenuators

– White noise source

Independent audio output is provided for each oscillator. A mixed output is also present featuring a level control.

We are recommend to use independent audio outputs to avoid distortion, in this case MiX output works as WHITE NOISE source with attenuator.

V/oct input of the first oscillator is normalled to all 3 oscillators, so OSC2 and OSC3 would track it too, however, connecting other signals to the other V/oct inputs make each input independent.


The minimum frequency of each oscillator is as low as 3Hz which makes it possible to use them as LFO.

Each oscillator tracks up to 9 octaves.

Trilobite as is a full analog module so should be allowed 5-7 minutes to warm up before use.

Technical info:

* 26HP

* input range: 0V to 9V

* skiff-friendly (25mm depth)

* 200 mA +12V

* 180 mA -12V

* 0 mA +5V

hand-built in Kyiv, Ukraine"
