yuSynth Auto-Bend Module

This module is very useful utility module to simulate the transient frequency bend that can be heard at the onset of a note played by some instruments such as trumpets and oboes. The same effect could be achieved using an ADSR module connected to the FM input of a VCO. However, having such a dedicated autobend module makes it possible to reserve ADSR modules for a "posher" use.

Yves designed a single PCB that can be used either to build a single 1U module or a dual 2U module.

The TIME knob let choose the bend time within a range from 1ms to 0.5s (this can be extended by changing some part values). Two outputs are provided than can be set independently within a range of +/- one octave. Switches are also provided to enable/disable the autobend function.

We all have our preferences when it comes to building our modular synth so we offer a range of products* for the build:

  • PCB
  • Individual components
  • Kit of parts (excluding PCB, knobs and connectors)
  • Knobs (Cliff KM20B)
  • Jack sockets
  • Power connectors
  • Front Panel
  • Back Panel
  • PCB Holder
  • PCB Holder Brackets
  • Panel PCBs
  • Wiring Leads

*Not all products are available at the time of writing but are in development

For the latest build information, we recommend visiting the YuSynth website at http://www.yusynth.net/Modular/index_en.html

However, we also include this build information in our product pages plus additional details relating to the complete module assembly using our front panel solution as they are developed.
