Elements is a classical 3 VCO analouge synth, with a golden touch keyboard and a massive sound.
• 3 VCO
• Spring reverb
• Tape Echo simulation
• Midi and CV/Gate
3 wide ranging voltage controlled oscillators and 1 VC low frequency oscillator/audio oscillator.
VC1: 5 waveforms: ramp, square, enhance, triangle, sine.
multi turn vernier dial tuning frequency: 1 hz - 20khz and beyond. Volume output direct to vcf.
VCO2: 5 waveforms: ramp, square, enhance, triangle, sine.
multi turn vernier dial tuning frequency: 1 hz - 20khz and beyond. volume output direct to vcf.
Shared enhance rate between vco1 and vco2, variable from slow - fast.
VCO3: 6 waveforms: ramp, square,triangle, sine, saw, s&h
multi turn vernier dial tuning frequency: 0.01 hz ~ 20khz and beyond. transpose switch: lo, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2.
CV on/off switch.
VCO3 hard synchronization to vco2.
Volume output direct to vcf or cross modulate vco2.
Temperature compensated VC low frequency oscillator/oscillator (VCO4): 6 waveforms: ramp, square,triangle, sine, saw, S&H. frequency rate variable from slow - fast- approx: 0.01 hz - 20khz and beyond. CV on/off switch. fast - slow switch. S&H selector switch: noise source or VCO3 source. mod VCO3 potentiometer, mod VCF potentiometer, audio to VCF potentiometer, large global modulation potentiometer.
Noise generator: white noise, pink noise. volume output direct to VCF and S&H circuits.
External audio input amplifier: volume output to VCF or ring modulator.
Ring modulator: mc1469 based double balanced modulator. Inputs: VCO1 sine, VCO2 sine or external audio input amplifier. volume output direct to VCF.
Voltage controlled filter/ resonator: self oscillating, 5 'rung' diode ladder type approximating 32db/octave roll off slope. Self correcting volume gain at high 'q' (response). CV/keyboard tracking switch: off (centre) half, full. vco3 modulation potentiometer, vcf eg sweep potentiometer. Pure sine output at maximum resonance/response. targeted to ca3080 based VCA.
VCF envelope generator: full attack, decay, sustain, release with long/short timing switch. vcf eg polarity switch: positive or negative going slopes. vcf eg > vco3 sweep switch.
VCA envelope generator: full attack, decay, sustain, release with long/short timing switch.
Tape delay simulator: input direct from VCA. Delay time potentiometer, delay modulation potentiometer, delay modulation control switch, delay repeats potentiometer, delay mix potentiometer. final output to spring reverberator circuit.
Spring reverberator: external spring line tank connect jack socket, standard tank supplied: compact belton/accutronics bmn3bb2c1 for wall/under desk mounting. other tanks/accesorries can be used.
Touch capacitive gold plated articulator keyboard allows 4 octave, F to F, chromatic span. Control source via switch can be touch keyboard, midi or external cv/gate. keyboard can send 1v/octave and +12v gate signals from outputs on the rear of the unit to suitable ancillary equipment, such as external vc synthesizer/vc synthesizer modules.
Other controls: ultrabender: dynamic pitch bend + - 2 octaves either side with dead band in the centre of play. master tune- + - ½ octave either side. global portamento- applies to all cv controls.
In-/Outputs: midi in/thru, cv in, gate in, vco1 cv in, vco2 cv in, vco 3 cv in, vcf cv in, external audio in, cv out, gate out, synth out, power in.
