RAVEN - Natural Anodized

RAVEN — 100% analog. Modular voice.

RAVEN'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.

RAVEN is comprised of:

  • Dual, wide-range Voltage Controlled Oscillators (C1-C9), unisono trackable with extensive FM/AM/PWM possibilities.
  • Dual, wide-range Low Frequency Oscillator (ca. 0.1Hz - Audio) switchable-mode.
  • A high-headroom, Voltage Controlled Crossfader (A/B).
  • The original TheBateleur (Ⓡ pending) Voltage Controlled Filter.
  • Two Voltage Controlled Amplifier circuits - A high-performance THAT2162 BlackmerⓇ 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/O’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.
