Analogue Solutions New Synthesizer Teaser: AMPLE

video upload by Analogue Solutions

Update: demo by Starsky Carr posted here.

Ample can be as complex or as simple as you want it to be: We have given this synth a large and diverse number of controls, that alongside the patch sockets, will give even the best and most experienced synthesist endless possibilities.

We have presented the controls in a user-friendly and familiar synth layout that, together with this manual and other resources, enables even the new guy to get great sounds.


"Ample is a compact analogue synthesizer. Analogue - as in really analogue. Aside from the MIDI chip (which has to be digital), everything else is totally analogue using real transistors and op-amps. There are no CPU-stabilised and quantised circuits, no DCOs, no digital LFOs and no digital EGs, as found on other so-called analogue synths. The circuitry is based on designs dating back to the mid-1970s. So Ample has a genuine old sound. The Best of all Ample combines the best elements of several of our recent products. -The sound elements of Fusebox -Jack patch points of Concussor Eurorack -Patch pin matrix of Vostok -Echo from Dr Strangelove -Sequencer and CV touch pads of Generator It shares all this yet still has its own sound!


3x Analogue Oscillators There are three analogue VCOs – each providing a wealth of features and modulation choices. VCO3 can easily be utilised as a LFO. 2x Analogue Low Frequency Oscillator LFO2(/Sync) has a triangle wave output. VCO3 can be used as an LFO and has Saw, Triangle and Square wave modulation signals. Analogue Filter Ample uses a four pole 24bB per octave low pass filter. Analogue Amplifier The VCA can be set to THRU so it is always ‘open’. This allows Ample to be used as an effects processor.

2x Analogue Envelopes

There are two EGs – each having full control over ATTACK, DECAY, SUSTAIN, and RELEASE. Modulation Great thought has been placed into modulation route choices, allowing a wide range of sounds to be produced, including percussion and ‘modular’ sounds further extended by patching with the jack sockets and pin matrix.


MIDI is intentionally kept simple – so you can concentrate on making new sounds and making music – not getting tied up with SYSEX programming. You get the all-important control over filter cut-off using MIDI Velocity.

Patchable External CV Control Sockets

Ample has many input and output audio and CV sockets - to allow the synth to be effectively re-wired to make new sounds. The sockets also enable it to be easily used with Eurorack and other modular systems. They can be patched together.


Ample has a vintage-style 16-step sequencer. Touch Keys There are 6 touch keys that each output a set voltage. Use this to play the pitch or as modulation signals. A great tool for inspiration! Pin Matrix A neat way to patch the synth.


Nice lo-fi echo / delay." (limited initial stock!)
