Welcome to the home of Modcan Synthesizers.
Modcan offers modules in 3 different formats.
A series is the original format with banana jacks.
B Series shares the same circuitry but uses a more
friendly rack sizing and 1/4" jacks.
Euro is the newest Modcan format designed for the
Euro Rack format
The following two mp3s are examples of the 4075 as a self oscillating sine wave generator being modulated by the
Sequencer 17a and a variety of LFOs,ADSRs and Oscillators.
An on-board mixer sums the three inputs together and the level control knob sets the overall input level to the filter. Moderate gain settings provide the smoothest sound but higher gain settings are better for high resonance sounds.
Exponential converters track linear voltage input at 1 volt per octave. This input is primarily used for keyboard tracking and pitch control of filter in self-oscillation mode.
CV Input 1
Control Voltage input with attenuator to control the depth of frequency modulation. When the knob is centered no modulation occurs. Positioning the knob to the left of zero inverts the incoming voltage (negative) and to the right the voltage is non-inverted (positive).
CV Input 2
Secondary Control Voltage input with attenuator. CV inputs are used to control the filters cutoff point. The most common input signal would be from an envelope generator or LFO.
This knob varies the height of the resonant peak at the cutoff frequency of the filter.
