NAMM 17 – AJH Synths

AJH 2AJH 1AJH 3Allan J. Hall added some new modules to his well received MiniMod product line. The Dual LFO + VCA is composed of two low frequency oscillators with two outputs each. In detail, one of those connectors emits a triangle waveform, which can be morphed into saw or ramp waves. The other jack sends out pulse signals with variable width. Both LFOs are equipped with rate potentiometers. Additionally, the first one has a slow switch to adjust the control range. Furthermore, it can be synchronized to external modules using a clock signal. The second LFO is normalized to the CV controllable VCA, meaning it is possible to influence the modulation strength with components like the modulation wheel of a keyboard. Of course, the amplifier can be used standalone as well.

AJHs second new module is the DH-ADSR Envelope, a modulator featuring a design similar to the EMS Trapezoid Generator. It offers delay, attack, decay, sustain value plus hold time and release parameters. Therefore, by combining it with a normal ADSR envelope, users are able to create complex modulation curves. A retrigger switch makes the circuit oscillate. The range of the time values can be altered. There are normal and inverted outputs.

The third module in the bunch of fresh products is called CV Mix – Offset – VCA. As the name states already, this circuit is specialized in mixing up to four control voltages. Its level potentiometers are bipolar. If no cable is plugged in, the first three inputs are normalized to fixed voltages. Their values vary from channel to channel. The fourth input comes equipped with an offset generator. Furthermore, there is a CV controllable VCA built-in.

Modular System for X-mas?

.. synthesizers could make one happy, too! If you plan to order something that you would like to have under or instead of a christmas tree – lightning could be even better – we strongly recommend to plan it and ask for availability in time. Usually this is not done in a day and we will recommend you to oversleep your indivdiual selection and constellation, but .. please call in or come in or start reading about it – if, then –  now.

Join Europe: iTs CHEAP now!

The european money is cheaper than ever at least for people in the US and the UK now. Unfortunately for europeans the products from these countries are much more expensive now .. the other way round, so… a lot of our prices for modulars and others finally had to be increased now. So please accept the raise from 7% to 10% average with some very attractive modular series,
… we are sorry. New prices are online and valid now!

.. And finally: Be welcome and  join Musikmesse in Frankfurt/Germany – it will be April, 15th to 18th this year – spring time with even more new stuff for even better prices, .. perhaps!

ARE YOU IN HAMBURG?

electronics-repairs2At Just Music in Hamburg the FIVE DAYS, a workshop series or promotion started today. At 2pm there will be an informational two hours about Doepfer, Moog, Mellotrons & more held by our new A-100 buddy Chris Miller and others. It will be held in german in the keyboards department of Just Music Hamburg HERE. So if you have no clue about modulars yet and you are around, just get there to learn how to patch.

Americans Distribution..

Boomstar_ausschnittAs a few other americans also, studio electronics aka makers of big and good analogue synths could not trust the germans as their general european distribution so they now signed a new partner called msl pro from the uk for such. Cause the prices of their products will probably increase a bit, I thought to let you know that we still have boomstars in most versions at Schneidersladen.  Good synths!
