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
e-flanger.mp3 Drum loop and envelope follower modulating the frequency of the Flanger module.
e-flanger2.mp3 variation on the above
ducker.mp3 demonstrates the gate extracter being used to create a ducker effect. Lots of other compressor/limiter type effects are possible in conjunction with VCAs. Side chaining is also possible if the source signal is filtered with the Fixed Filter Bank etc., pre-follower input.
Envelope Follower Section
1/4" input jack to Pre-amp and follower circuitry. Pre-amp output for boosted external audio signals. Gain selector switch for matching external signal levels. 1X for modular levels, 10X for line +4dBu, 100X for guitar or microphone. Envelope follower output for patching to A/R section for further processing. Follower output is normalled to the Gate input and AR input.
Gate Extractor Section
Comparator converts voltage from the envelope follower section to +5V gate signal with user definable threshold. Status LED indicates threshold.
VC A/R Envelope Section
separate attack, release controls work in conjunction with CV input to set the duration of the envelope or smoothing contour. 3 position selector switch routes the voltage control ENV CV jack to the attack, release or both. LED indicates envelope state.
