An analog/digital hybrid monosynth built in July 2010.
Two digital oscillators, each can select from 24 waveforms.
The oscillators can be combined using one of the eight mix modes: add, subtract, IOR, XOR, split, switch, FM, phase distortion.
Further digital processing can be applied using one of the wave shaping options: phaser, pitch doubler, sync, xor ring, FM 1, FM 2, resonance, wavefolder 1, wavefolder 2, phase distortion 1 & 2.
There are three LFOs and two envelope generators which can be routed to any of the main synthesis blocks, and a dedicated LFO for the joystick controller.
Two analogue filters in parallel -
Filter 1 is a 24db/oct low pass SSM2044
Filter 2 is a 24db/oct switched capacitor MF10 with LFP, HPF and BPF modes.
Sequences of up to 256 steps can be stored using the step-programmable sequencer.
Demo of a few sounds:
SSM2044 filter, pitch doubling, phase distortion, sync, and a sequence using
several waveforms and mix types.

Two digital oscillators:
12 sweepable wavetables with smooth and stepped modes and sweep direction.
24 single cycle waveforms which can be mixed using Add, Xor, Split, Phase Distortion or FM.
And an additional PWM mode.
Two analogue filters -
Filter 1: 12dB/Oct LPF/BPF with overdrive
Filter 2: 24dB/Oct LPF/Notch with variable notch mode
Three LFOs and two analogue ADSRs
120 step programmable sequencer, records note value and velocity.
Midi In and Thru.
Cygnx - Prototype 1
Analogue/digital wavetable monosynth module built in July 2011.
Digital oscillators as on the Cygnus X-1, with 24 waveforms each.
The oscillators can be mixed using Add, Xor, Split, switch, FM.
Other oscillator modes are PWM, Stepped- and Smooth-Sweepable Wavetables.
