    Description
    The Vostok may at first glance look like an EMS clone, but it is not. It may share the matrix panel and suitcase style design, but thatメs where the similarities end. The Vostok has far far more features packing a powerful amount of modular synthesiser power into one small suitcase.

    Matrix Patch Panel

    Utilises the EMS VCS3/AKS style patch panel, but with an with increased 22x22 connection size. The matrix panel gives the patching versatility of a modular without the need for confusing & front-panel interfering patch cables. Itメs the neatest & most versatile method of creating patches.


    External Patching

    Matrix panels alone do not allow interfacing with external synthesizers & signals, so the Vostok also provides a full complement of front panel jack socket patch points for additional internal & external patching & interfacing.

    All circuits are totally analogue with the exception of the MIDI interface.

    Utility Modules

    Mixer: CV / Audio Mixer. 6 input with Normal and Inverse output
    Signal Meter: The meter input is taken from the mixer output
    Multiples 1 and 2: 2 multiples, each is 4 way
    Adaptor 1: 6.35mm / 3.5mm jack socket converters
    Adaptor 2: 6.35mm / 3.5mm jack socket converter wired into the matrix board

    Control Modules

    MIDI to CV Converter: CV1 (pitch) / CV2 (controller) / Gate / Accent / Legato, MIDI Thru, channel select, manual trigger
    Joystick: 2 way joystick controller
    Sequencer: 8 step CV & Gate analogue sequencer, range switch, manual step

    Audio Modules

    VCO1: Saw / Square waves, Pulse Width, Glide, Sync
    VCO2: Saw / Square waves, Pulse Width, Glide, Sync
    VCO3: Saw / Square waves, Pulse Width, Glide, Sync
    Noise: White noise source

    Voltage Controlled Multimode Filter:

    2 Filters based on Korg MS20 circuitry. Independent Cut Off and Resonance for Low Pass Filters and High Pass Filters. The VCLPF and VCHPF combine to produce a 3rd filter type, Band Pass

    Voltage Controlled Amplifier:

    VCA wired in series with the VCF output. With 1/4" jack audio output.

    Ring Modulator: AC ring mod

    CV Modules

    EG 1: ADSR envelope generator, Norla/Inverse output, Repeat function
    EG 2: ADSR envelope generator, Normal/Inverse output, Repeat function
    VCLFO1: Ramp, Reverse Ramp, Square,Triangle waves, Voltage controlled frequency
    VCLFO2: Ramp, Reverse Ramp, Square,Triangle waves, Voltage controlled frequency

    Sample & Hold:
    S&H with Slew

    Matrix Patch Panel

    Utilising ムEMS VCS3メ style patch panel with 22x22 connections. The patching versatility of a modular without the need for confusing & front-panel interfering patch cables.

    Lead Patching

    Jack socket patch points provided for additional internal & external patching & interfacing.
