E-MU 25 Modular Analog Synthesizer

   0 reviews  -  614 views

    The E-MU 25 was a precursor to E-MU’s Modular systems, featuring about twenty modules behind a single front panel, including 3 VCO's, 2VCF's, 2VCA's and two envelope generators. Unlike the “bulletproof” all-aluminum standards of the Modular systems, the E-MU 25 used cheap slide pots and plastic switches, and even sported a "vacuum cleaner" power switch! Only two units were produced; they were identical on the outside, but had completely different circuitry inside because the circuitry was evolving so quickly.

    Design Notes:

    The E-mu 25 had been a "front panel" synthesizer, but E-mu developers Dave Rossum and Scott Wedge thought it would be more fun to build a modular synthesizer.
