Audiophile Circuits League System 1

   (0 reviews)

With the System 1, ACL presents an achievement of electronic design. It is a 6U 84HP readymade eurorack configuration consisting of modules needed for a well-equipped stereophonic synthesizer with CV/gate control, but it goes well behind it!

With the System 1 you can easily get bass and lead synth sounds as well as stereo effects and drums sounds, all in audiophile quality. Housed in our EVZ-1 case, you can easily carry it around. It comes with 20 patch cables, ready to be played!

The System 1 includes two Variable Sync VCOs with high quality Vernier dials for precise tuning, linear and exponential FM and advanced sync possibilities.

With the Oktave module you can control simultaneously both oscillators in pitch, and transpose any sequence up or down by up to four octaves.

The Dual State Variable VCF allows clean sound shaping as well as sound generation - excellent for kick drums! This powerfull and liquid sounding multimode filter features separate outputs for each filter type. Additionally the notch output can be blended between lowpass, bandpass, notch to highpass with a potentiometer.

Up to four sources can be summed with the high quality mixer module named Gate Mix, enabling also clickless muting of each channel.

You will be able to define the position of the signal in the stereo field thanks to the VC Panning Amplifier. This module can also be used as two standalone VCAs, for example for duophonic applications.

Furthermore it is possible to control the width of an stereo L/R signal with the M/S Matrix, which enables mid/side processing. It can simultaneously extract the mid and side signals from a stereo input whilst combining a mid and side signal to form a L/R stereo signal.

Envelope X3 provides three classic ADSR envelopes for controlling VCAs, VCFs, and other modules. We modelled the envelopes on those of the acclaimed Roland 100M modular synthesizer which are renowned for their punch and lowered the time factor by a factor of 2, giving you even snappier attacks!

Thanks to the Dual Delay with integrated 6dB low- and high-pass filters for each feedback channel you can create complex stereo effects, from pitch modulation effects to neverending echos.

Due to it´s phase shifted sine waves, the QLFO module is the perfect partner for modulating the Dual-SVF and the Dual Delay module.

The Audio Interface module is included to interconnect the System 1 with both professional studio and stage equipment, with the highest possible quality while offering full protection for your ears, your speakers and your headphones due to it´s clever built in DC and clipping protection circuit. It provides a powerful studio-grade headphone outputput, ready to drive your lowest impedance headphone, down to 15 ohms.

The remaining unused space is covered with a 4HP blank panel to allow easy expansion of the system according to your own wishes.

Dive into patching and sound design with the System 1. Enjoy the authentic sound and innovative features of our range of high quality modules!
