Pre-Order a ๐‘๐€๐•๐„๐ โ€” 100% Analog. Synthesizer Voice from the 5th batch (dispatched by March 2020).

Available in Black or Natural anodized panel versions.

๐‘๐€๐•๐„๐'s system-architectural idea was about going back to the basics of subtractive synthesis. We wanted to capture the raw, non-linearity and honesty of a 100% analog circuit. The main engineering challenge of RAVEN was consolidating a highly complex conglomerate of modular, discrete designs into a slim 3U/42HP (Eurorack) form-factor resulting in a uniquely sounding subtractive,
modular, high-performance, musical instrument.

๐‘๐€๐•๐„๐ is comprised of:

โ€ข Dual, wide-range Voltage Controlled Oscillators (C1-C9), unisono trackable with extensive FM/AM/PWM possibilities.
โ€ข Dual, wide-range Low Frequency Oscillator (ca. 0.1Hz - Audio) switchable-mode.
โ€ข A high-headroom, Voltage Controlled Crossfader (A/B).
โ€ข The original TheBateleur (โ“‡ pending) Voltage Controlled Filter.
โ€ข Two Voltage Controlled Amplifier circuits - A high-performance THAT2162 Blackmerโ“‡ VCA and an Optocoupler VCA reminiscent of legendary West-Coast designs as a serial-saturation option.

RAVEN combines the simplicity of a performance-friendly, semi-modular synthesizer voice with fully-modular, infinitely flexible, workflow possibilities by assigning Control Voltage I/Oโ€™s at (almost) every point in the signal workflow.
Each modular component can be seen as a standalone, self-sufficient entity.
The normalized VCF can be used as a standalone 24dB LPF or 3rd Oscillator-voice in self-oscillation range, perfectly tracking 1V/Oct by choice.
