ADSR envelope generator test

Published on Jul 25, 2013 pirxmodular·3 videos

"ADSR envelope generator test using Leader LBO-9CH-B oscilloscope.

The LBO-9CH-B is a X-Y scope used as a display device in Hitachi 60 MHz NMR spectrometer. The scope has a relatively long phosphor persistence which allows looking at slow rate signals.

Here, a MFOS ADSR envelope generator controls the Y-axis of the scope. The X-axis (time) is controlled by a slow-rate sawtooth VCO synced with the envelope trigger.

What you hearing is Jurgen Haible Living VCOs mixed and fed through a YuSynth Minimoog VCF filter controlled by the ADSR generator."

BLUE ZTVCO DRY DEMO & Surrounding Controversy

YouTube Uploaded by bluelantern320 on Jan 3, 2012

Update 10/4/2013: I heard from Ian Fritz and the controversy is over. Blue Lantern no longer offers the ZTVCO. That said, BL posts will resume.

This one, which seems to be a reoccurring theme with Blue Lantern, comes with a good dose of controversy. You might recall from a few years ago BL got into a bit of heat selling MIDIBox SIDs on eBay. MIDIBox explicitly forbids the commercial resale of MIDIBox SIDs. Blue Lantern stopped and went into producing affordable eurorack based modules and systems.

This latest controversy surrounds the source of design for the new BLUE ZTVCO. You might recall from the comments in this previous post, the design of that prototype module appeared to be a copy of Ian Fritz's Teezer (TZFM Saw VCO debuted Sep'08) design. Ian Fritz's modules are available via The Bride Chamber and Elby Designs.

In short:

1. Is the BLUE ZTVCO based on Ian Fritz's design?
2. If so, to what extent?
3. If so, is it legal?
4. If so, is it fair and does it matter?

The answer to 1 and 2 will not be known until someone gets a hand on the ZTVCO and reverse engineers it. I asked BL if he would be willing to provide the schematics to put the issue to rest and he replied no. He said people can reverse engineer it when it it's available and he is sure someone will. The answer to 3 is quite possibly so. There is currently a good thread on the subject on the forum here. The answer to 4 depends on you. My personal opinion is that it is not fair and it definitely does matter. Whether legal or not, I view it as stealing. These designs do not come out of thin air. They take time and talent and sometimes years to produce. You will see some insight on this in regards to Ian's Teezer design from him directly below. When someone makes their designs available, credit should be given.

The following is a response from Blue Lantern in regards to the claims made against him. The most important thing to read out of his points below is "3. This is not a clone, this vco is a beast in it's own cage."

Massive Bugbrand Modular

via indexofmetals on Muff's
"Finally had time to take all the modules out of the separate racks, screw them together as 2 x 3 racks, then put everything back in but better set out, and put together the 2 x 1 rack controller unit. the empty space is for the updated ring mod and I need to find space for a couple of the new EG's and clocking modules. In time it's going to become 3 x 3 as I need quite a few more of the SV filters and couple more utility vco's."

Some Wiard in there as well. Synth candy... Be sure to click the image for the full size shot.
