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
904A Demo sequence
All sounds were created using the 904A

Retained from the original design, sets the frequency band over which the Fixed Volt knob operates in two octave steps.
Position 1: 1Hz to 5kHz
Position 2: 4Hz to 20kHz
Position 3: 16Hz to 60kHz
The filter input level is adjusted using the Level control attenuator.
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.
Knob varies the amplitude of the resonant peak at the cutoff frequency of the filter.
