Under construction

The voltage controlled oscillator is one of the essential core modules in your modular analogue synth. The M²Synth has a few options for VCOs:

  • VCO 101 with sync inputs and sub octave pulse outputs
  • VCO 102 is a quad VCO with preset chord intervals between the VCOs
  • VCO 103 is a mini version of the 101 without the sync and sub octave features
  • Voice 108 has in addition to a VCO, other core functions including a filter, VCA, noise, ADSR etc.

Overview 

This module, the VCO 101 is a fully featured oscillator which we consider to be your main VCO. Where space is limited, it pairs up well with its mini-version, the VCO 103. This combination gives the fat two oscillator sound plus offer synchronisation between the oscillators for those rich harmonic sounds.

Features

  • 4 waveforms outputs Pulse, Saw, Triangle & Sine
  • Sub Oscillator Square wave output that can be switched between 1 octave and 2 octaves below the main VCO outputs.
  • 1 Volt/Octave control voltage input
  • 1 Volt/Octave modulation input (FM) with potentiometer attenuator
  • AC Linear control voltage input with potentiometer attenuator 60Hz/Volt
  • Coarse and fine frequency potentiometer controls
  • Pulse output can be varied from around 5% to 95% pulse width with potentiometer
  • External pulse width modulation of pulse output with potentiometer attenuator
  • 3 types of sync input, soft, +ve and -ve.
