Photon (prototype)

Synth engine with key basic elements (prototype)

I had played around in my head if was possible for me to put into a 21 HP 3U module, a synth engine with the key basic elements. I came up with this, the Photon! It is a complimentary module to the soon to be released micromac. Within the typical design ergonomics of what I do- I had to chose the most important elements that would fit the space. The two Oscillators feature the two most popular usable waveforms, sawtooth and square as the audio sources as well a mix control for White Noise. The Oscillators feature 'centre off' switches so that the audio signal is not always on. I had to decide whether or not to stick with the original design I had that featured External Audio In or to go for an Oscillator Sync control. The sync won out because for me- that feature is to good to miss on a synth engine- and that is what this is- not a signal proccessor! The envelopes have their roots in the moog rougue/MG-1 EGs- it's a nifty and clever design that works extremely well in this instance- the EG not only sweeps the filter but can perform three different VCA functions- so this is not a Low Pass Gate.
