0-Coast
0-Coast

 
The 0-COAST is a single voice patchable synthesizer. It’s name reflects the fact that it utilizes techniques from both the Moog and Buchla paradigms (aka “East Coast,” and “West Coast,” due to their locations), but is loyal to neither and thus implements “no coast synthesis.”

While the 0-COAST utilizes classic modular synthesis techniques, we designed it to operate with or without the use of patch cables. The necessary connections have been made from circuit to circuit so it operates as an expressive, musical MonoSynth. Using only the MIDI controller of your choice you could apply new timbres to your existing musical forms!

Using the included Patch Cables you could get more scientific, experimenting with new ways to wire up the circuits. You might even forgo MIDI altogether, disappearing into a cloud of analog FM induced Sidebands and harmonics scattered around a single fundamental drone that has nothing to do with any form of music you’ve ever known.

  • Type/ Voice
  • Width/ 14HP
  • Power/ +139/-10mA
  • Depth/ 30mm

 

The tELHARMONIC is a Multi-Voice, Multi-Algorithm synthesizer module named for the music hall considered by some to be the location of the first electronic music concerts. It was coded by Tom Erbe with the goal of presenting three historically important pioneering electronic tone generation techniques less often implemented within the modular synthesizer.
The tELHARMONIC's roots go back further than the advent of electronic music, as it also takes a new approach to handling music theory in the modular context. TONIC, INTERVAL, DEGREE and D-GATE, allow for patch-programming of complex chord progressions, scales, melodies and playing styles. This Voltage Controlled Music Theory guides the Algorithms in a unified way, whereas CENTROID, FLUX and H-LOCK sculpt the timbre of each Algorithm uniquely, allowing for complex sounds to be created around a unified melodic structure and pattern.

Features
  • 3 Voice Additive Harmonic synthesis inspired by Thaddeus Cahill's Telharmonium, 1897
  • Noise synthesis inspired by early computer music piece “Analog 1: Noise Study” by James Tenney, 1961
  • 3 Voice Phase Modulation synthesis inspired by early commercial digital synthesis, 1980's
  • CENTROID, FLUX and H-LOCK animate each Algorithm uniquely
  • All Algorithms available simultaneously at their respective outputs
  • 6 octaves of continuous 1V/ Oct. pitch control, 4 octaves of quantized pitch control
  • 3 Voice Shift Register allows for creation of any 3-note chord within the twelve-tone scale
  • Voltage Controlled Music Theory!
  • DEGREE Modulation able to be synchronized by clock or gate via D-Gate input
  • Gate Out completes the conversation between tELHARMONIC and rest of system!
  • Utilizes High performance DSP hardware with 24bit, 48kHz codec, 32 bit floating point processing
  • Reasonable power consumption
  • Has Spiratone inside
  • Pairs well with Optomix

RXMX
RXMX

 

  • Type/ Mixer
  • Width/ 20HP
  • Power/ +35/-30mA
  • Depth/ 24mm

 
Vactrol-based 6-input, 3-output macro-lowpass gate and signal crossfader, based on Grant Richter’s circuit idea for applying “cadavre exquis” (aka exquisite corpse, a technique of serial blind composition) to modular synthesis. If modulated by a Wogglebug, one will achieve modular “cadavre exquis.” If patch programmed using a sequencer such as the Pressure Points/ BRAINS or René, modular “mélange automatique” (automatic re-mixing) could be achieved. The Channel parameter selects which of the 6 Low Pass Gate circuits is driven by the Level and Strike parameters and the Radiate parameter turns on channels adjacent to the selected channel. At maximum Radiate settings all six channels become active simultaneously. Radiate therefore allows for voltage control of the complexity of the mix ranging from 1 to 6 active sound sources, while Channel selects the focal point of the mix.
 

Features
  • Excels at smooth dynamic blending and percussive animation of related or unrelated signals
  • Level and Strike parameters, similar to the Optomix Low Pass Gate, impart magically slow response time upon the amplitude of the signal being processed
  • Expansion header allows for unpatched connection to DPO for waveform scanning
  • Expansion header allows for unpatched connection to 6 bands of the FXDf Fixed Filter module allowing for voltage controlled, percussive spectral animation
  • Patch programmable to have one six-channel, or one four-channel and one two-channel, or three two-channel outputs
  • Aux A and Aux C inputs for chaining SUM Outs and creating larger more complex mixes
  • Pairs well with FXDf

Teleplexer
Teleplexer

 

  • Type/ Utility
  • Width/ 8HP
  • Power/ +20/-20mA
  • Depth/ 24mm

 
The Teleplexer is a telegraph style multiplexer (signal router) that applies the fast, physically immediate techniques of telegraphy to playing the modular synthesizer. The user patches any number of control sources leaving the destination end of patch cables un-connected. Destinations are patched to the outputs of the Teleplexer. Touching the tip of any patch cable carrying a source signal to the surface of the Teleplexer creates a momentary connection. The user determines the destination(s) and polarity of signal by touching the patch cable to any one of the 14 metal plates.
As the building blocks of synthesis are a by-product of communications technologies, why not look to telegraphy for inspiration? The speed and agility telegraph operators displayed relaying life-altering messages across the world was staggering toward some form of future musical genius.
 

Features
  • use as many sources as desired
    possible sources include LFO, Envelope, Sequence, Clock, Gate, Audio Signals and more
  • add & subtract voltages by using several sources at multiple plates
  • Auxiliary inputs allow for continuous signal source to be added to destination
  • up to 3 independent destination outputs
    output signal channel, level and polarity indicated by LEDs
  • outputs capable of driving multiple destinations without loading effects (no buffered mult needed)
