A-111-5 Mini Synthesizer Voice

The A-111-5 is not an oscillator in the traditional sense, but a complete mini synthesizer with VCO, VCF, VCA, ADSR and two LFOs. A “Dark Energy” (first generation) for the modular system! A lot of things here are patchable, but upon closer inspection you’ll see that some signal paths are exclusively internal. For example, there … Read more

A-111-6 Miniature Synthesizer Voice

I often used my A-111-5 as a “stopgap” when I quickly needed another simple synthesizer voice and maybe was just too lazy to patch extra VCO, VCF, VCA, ADSR and LFOs for such a secondary voice . I was often plagued by the “guilty conscience of the modularist” when I ignored the far-reaching possibilities of … Read more

A-141-2 Voltage Controlled Envelope Generator VCADSR / VCLFO

Pimp my VCADSR! The predecessor A-141 was a more than useful module for many purposes, but there were still “wishes” when it came to the details: The A-141 wasn’t as fast and “snappy” as the legendary A-140, and loopable envelopes like the A-143-1 or A-143-2 would sometimes be nice… With the new A-141-2, Doepfer has … Read more

A-142-2 Dual Envelope Controlled VCA

The module is small and interesting. A stripped down to two parameters but still flexible envelope generator with voltage control, hardwired to a linear VCA, plus a ducking function. The whole thing is also designed twice on only 8 HP. This is made possible by the new “Slim Line” format with slightly smaller buttons and … Read more

A-144 Morphing Controller

The module is no longer in production. The A-144 Morphing Controller generates control voltages that are used, for example, to regulate four linear VCAs of a voltage-controlled mixer in such a way that the four input signals of the mixer are morphed one after the other. The A-135-1 or A-135-2 Voltage Controlled Mixer and the … Read more

A-143-1 Complex Envelope Generator / LFO

The Complex Envelope Generator is a very versatile modulation source. It consists of four AD envelopes (i.e. there are only attack and decay phases), which can be cascaded in any combination, trigger each other or be operated in an “LFO” mode. Due to the complexity of the circuit and setting options, the A-143-1 requires a … Read more

A-141-4 Quad Poly VCADSR

The A-141-4 is a quadruple ADSR that is only 8 TE wide and is primarily intended for polyphonic applications. Therefore, there is only one set of controls for the envelope’s parameters – attack, decay, sustain and release, which affect all four envelopes equally. In addition, we find four control voltage inputs with bipolar attenuators for … Read more
