Vintage Synthlab Eurorack Analog Modular Synthesizer

video upload by Vintage Synthlab

"Demo of various Vintage Synth Lab modules:

VCF-74 : analog filter used for kick noise, snare noise, upper synth voice, lower synth voice.

D-ENV : Delayed Envelope Generator (ADSR / AR) used throughout.

AWM-3 : mixer / matrix-mixer / wave shaper.

VCO-81 : CEM3340 precision analog voltage controlled oscillator for kick body voicing, upper synth voice, lower synth voice.

N-STX : for white noise to snare, pink noise to kick, S&H to snare noise LP cut-off, S&H to upper voice HP cut-off."

Vintage Synth Lab demo Eurorack modular analog synth VCO-81 VCF-74 D-ENV

video by Vintage Synthlab

"Analog modular eurorack synthesizer demonstrating the fast envelope action of the D-ENV (Delayed Envelope Generator), with the VCF-74 Mk2 (analog diode-ring filter module based on the 1970s mini-Korg 700 700s), and our VCO-81 (CEM3340 precision, high-quality analog VCO - unreleased). Our N-STH (Noise + Sample/Track & Hold) is used to provide white noise for extra snare sound, S&H routed to the HP filter of the VCF-74, and Track & Hold from another N-STH is used to slew the pitch of the CV controlling the VCO-81 (pitch) 1v/octave.

The result is a warm, analog, singing mono-synth voice, full of endless possibilities of character to dial in whether live, recording, or used as a tool for deep sound design in the pro and commercial audio industries."

VSL Eurorack analog modular synth demo JAWS theme wavefolder AWM-3, env gen D-ENV, filter VCF-74

Vintage Synthlab

"JAWS theme on Eurorack modular synth.

Here we have an AWM-3 wavefolding, while a D-ENV drives the front end (input) of the AWM-3 first stage to created dynamic wave folding (as opposed to static wavefold). Each stage has modulation injected to it's bias / threshold / offset CV input, allowing for a big, chorus-like sound.
The VCF-74 mk2 is our LP filter also being driven by independent D-ENV for both filter cutoff and VCA. The VCO-81 is our synth voice--being driven by the Beatstep Pro Sequencer #2 (yellow)."

Vintage Synth Lab Eurorack Demo - Depeche Mode - To Have and To Hold

Vintage Synthlab

"Short demo of VSL Eurorack modules playing To Have and To Hold by Depeche Mode. Wavefolding is dynamic, driven by the D-ENV (delayed env gen module) VCA feeding the AWM-3 (wave folding mixer module), in triple-wave fold configuration.

Next we see three modulation sources, all injected into the three independent wave-fold stage bias or threshold (CV input). This creates a HUGE chorus sound. Think of it as the PWM for non-rectangular waveforms (sine, tri, ramp, saw).

And the use of our VCF-74 (analog filter) with additional D-ENV modules, creates the widest array possible for analog synthesis texture, dynamics, and overall character."

Vintage Synth Lab Eurorack AWM-3 Halloween 2020

Vintage Synthlab

"Wishing everyone a safe, healthy, happy, and creative Halloween!

The AWM-3 is a 3 channel mixer, with additional features such as wave folding/shaping (for both independent positive and negative folding), per channel.

Channels can be chained together to create multi-folding, up to triple wave folding. A compressor allows for dynamic signals (VCA driven) to fine tune a wide array of new sonic character.

Bias is adjustable (threshold for wavefold action), as well as a level trim (6 total) for each channel's positive and negative bias modulation via the additional CV inputs.

Each channel also has a buffered output.

And last, master mix, and three matrix mix combo outputs are always accessible."

VCO-81 percussion / tom drum synthesis demo 20160625

Published on Jun 26, 2019 Vintage Synthlab

"Two VCO-81s, utilized as the main body voicing of the percussion sound (tom drums in this case). A modulation and equal tracking of exp FM is applied via a D-ENV env gen. One of the VCO-81s is also receiving a slight Lin FM of ~2 Hz..

AWM-3 used as attenuators / gain for CV routing to VCF-74's LP filter cutoff (of white noise portion of drum sound) to allow for custom spread, aka 'keyboard tracking' mixed with a D-ENV env gen.

A huge percussive sound can be synthesized and shaped in a very wide variety of drum sounds, metallic, organic, wood, small to large."

VSL VCO-81 Prototype

Published on May 7, 2019 Vintage Synthlab


1. VSL VCO-81 prototype (x3 voices) with SYNC and FM interaction CEM3340 analog
VCO-81 prototypes with brief SYNC modes and FM explored.
2. VSL VCO-81 Eurorack 12hp precision analog VCO CEM3340 4-voice unison tracking demo
Here we have 4 of our VCO-81 prototypes sharing the same CV (1v/oct) source, acting as one quad VCO voice in unison. Tracking for our design is the most accurate and linear response of any CEM3340 on the synthesizer marketplace as of today. Pricing and availability TBA soon.

VSL prototype CEM3340 single VCO : Demo 1

Published on Mar 25, 2019 Vintage Synthlab

"CEM3340 based single VCO, precision analog, high quality, with HS+/-, SS1/2, LIN/EXP FM, and 5 independent waveform outputs : sine, triangle, ramp, square / PWM, sub.

Price: TBD
Availability: Stay tuned via VSL social media (IG, YT, FB or )

In this first demo video, we illustrate just how accurate our CEM3340 VCO design is. All analog, precision trim-pots, high quality ICs, high quality film caps and 0.1% resistors used in critical circuits ...even those areas that other designs overlook!)

RANGE switch: LFO-1; LFO-2; 64', 32', 16', 8', 4', 2'

CLUTCH switch: when yellow (default) allows RANGE switch to operate freely; when red (engaged) latches RANGE switch to current selection. Switch can be rotated without affecting VCO, until released (push of the CLUTCH switch again... i.e. toggles between both modes).

HARD SYNC features: Hard Sync +, Hard Sync can be engaged independently.

SOFT SYNC features: SS1 and SS2 mode allows negative sync signal to reset VCO (tri-core). SS2 mode is weaker, however both will allow the VCO to interact in interesting ways with ext mod sources (as seen in this video demo)."

Eurorack delayed envelope VSL D-ENV self-cycling looping feature demo

Published on May 29, 2018 Vintage Synthlab

1. Jump the GATE IN jack and D-G IN jack with a stackable.
2. Set the DELAY to maximum, and the HOLD to about 50%.
3. Use another cable plugged into the jumper at the D-G IN jack and momentarily connect to the INV OUT jack (this takes advantage of the INV OUT's resting or nominal +8V for a positive trigger feed into the D-G IN jack which in turn feeds the DELAY timer a signal to start the timing process.
4. In less than one second after initially connecting the INV OUT to the trigger cable, move it over to the D-G OUT jack before the HOLD L.E.D. goes out. If you connect before then, you should have a self-cycling D-ENV!

The above procedure is safe to perform on the D-ENV module. Any deviation from this method, including different voltages, different systems, or modifications are not recommended by VSL.

Vintage Synth Lab : D-ENV Eurorack delayed gate & trigger envelope generator

Published on Feb 7, 2018 Vintage SynthLab

"The D-ENV is a 10hp Eurorack analog (exponential) envelope generator (AR, ADSR) with an additional Delay and Hold circuit to generate delayed gates or triggers, and hold time up to 1 second. The D-ENV's delay circuit is completely independent of the ADSR, however the delayed gate (or trigger) can be routed internally using the D-G or D-T switches. The Delayed Gate and Trigger output jacks are always available, regardless of internal routing. CV to control DELAY time (DELAY controls sets maximum delay time). The Delay circuit is essentially a one-bit shift register which only allows gates or triggers at the DG-IN jack to be acknowledged once the complete DELAY, then HOLD (sequence time minimum is 24 ms, or 12 ms for each stage) process is complete. During the DELAY or HOLD processing, the DG-IN jack ignores all incoming delay gate signals. Inverted output of the EG is also available. Short and Long modes are accessible from the front panel, however the extended long range can be set on the rear of the module for extra long envelopes."
