    The Pittsburgh Modular System 10.1 Synthesizer is huge sound hiding in a small case. Updated for 2015 to include the new extremely well featured Midi 3 module, the System 10.1 offers direct access to a wide array of modern, analogue monosynth sounds. Without a single patch cable, floor shaking bass and aggressive leads are just a few knob tweaks away. Plugging in a few patch cables opens the Pittsburgh Modular System 10.1 Synthesizer to complex experimentation by offering unlimited control over both the modulation and audio signal paths. All of the elements of a classic voltage controlled, analogue modular synth are available as an open, patchable, modern synthesizer.
    The System 10.1 Synthesizer features a complex waveforms oscillator. Standard triangle, square, and saw waves are available alongside a sub oscillator and our new blade wave. The blade wave is a rich, modulatable saw that can be controlled in several unique ways.
    The System 10.1 Synthesizer also features the Lopass Gate. The Lopass Gate uses a highly tuned set of vactrols to produce everything from natural sounding filter sweeps and res'd out piercing leads to organic percussion. The Lopass Gate has 3 modes of operation: low pass filter, VCA, and lopass gate. In lopass gate mode, the filter combines the features of both the low pass filter and VCA to produce a harmonically rich, intricate sound.
    The Modules
    (Complete, Fully Patchable, 2nd Generation Semi-Modular Synthesizer Voice)
    Wired for instant access to classic tones without needing a single patch cable, the Synthesizer Box is a modern, complete semi-modular, monophonic synthesizer module. The Synthesizer Box is 100% analogue and 100% Eurorack compatible with a complete set of patch points able to override the internal audio and CV signal paths.
    The Synthesizer Box was designed to be the core of any modular system. Each major component is fully patchable and can function independent to the rest of the module. This allows the functionality of the Waveforms Oscillator, Lopass Gate, LFO, Envelope Generator, and VCA to be split apart and used like standalone modules.
    The Mix Mult is a multifunction utility module. The module combines three important functions into a single module. A high quality three channel mixer and/or attenuator and two sets of passive multiples.
    The mixer/attenuator section functions as a flexible, low-noise three channel mixer and/or attenuator for audio and cv that can be used in several ways. Patching into the output of channel 1 or 2 will remove that channel from the mixer circuit and turn the channel into an independent passive signal attenuator. Channel 3 can not be removed from the mixer circuit, however if channel 1 and 2 are all being used as attenuators, channel 3 is the only input remaining in the mixer allowing it to be used as a buffered attenuator. The mixer knobs are wired with a logarithmic volume curve that is tuned for use with audio but it will work with CV as well.
    The bottom of the module contains two sets of passive multiples. Patching a signal into one of the multiple jacks will split the signal to the remaining two jacks. allowing a single audio or CV signal to be used in two places at once.
    MIDI 3
    The Midi 3 converts standard midi note messages into the analogue control voltages used by modular synthesizers. This allows a modular synthesizer to be controlled by a midi keyboard, sequencer, or DAW.
    The two sets of Gate (GT) outputs can be used to trigger envelope generators by providing a voltage of +5v. The Control Voltage (CV) outputs produce precisely 1volt per octave over a range of 10 octaves. Pitch bend, assignable CC and dedicated velocity outputs, a feature rich clock source with tap tempo, midi and external gate clock dividers, and multiple arpeggiator responses. This module is deep.
    The simplest way to get sound out of a modular. Outs is a dual independent output module featuring a stereo 1/4 inch headphone amplifier output and dual mono 1/4 inch line level outputs.
    Left and Right inputs are available. If only the left input is used, the signal is sent to both the Left and Right outputs.
