Model 180 Dual Attack Generator
Dual envelopes, each with controls for attack time, decay time, and note duration. Note duration can be controlled externally - creating an ASR envelope, or internally, allowing one to set a sustain length independent of gate length. Allows for straight AD envelopes all the way through to creating strange clocks and rhythms. No retriggering during attack or “duration” phase allows for clock dividing. Produces linear slopes as opposed to “normal” envelopes with logarithmic curves.
Catalyst Model 100 modules are as technically accurate reproductions as is possible of the legendary Buchla 100 system from the 60´s. A/B tested with the original 100 series system from the San Francisco Tape Music Center (Now located at Mills College, Oakland).
