SynthesizerPlug and Play
Analog oscillators and filters actually produce sounds, or create behaviors, while digital sounds are always reproductions of sounds or behaviors. While some stage-synth classics still exert a strong fascination on me, I am still devoting myself to the modular systems.
These offer a universal and open approach. They deepen and concretise the awareness of sound processes. A modular system offers all possibilities for the interpretation of existing electronic works. Circuits can be implemented and can now be interwoven with digital processes at any point.
WIth Modular synthesizers we distinguish between operating voltage and control voltage. While the operating voltage varies between 12-, 15- and 18V, the control voltage (CV) is 10V pp (peak to peak) and volt/octave (= 10 octaves) for most systems. Thus, different formats can be "patched" and form an instrument together - they only need different power supplies.
