Muscarin Semi-Modular Synthesizer

    Description
    The Muscarin is an analog music synthesizer with analog and touch controls, that has everything that’s needed for creating music and synthesis of sounds.

    Designed by kNoB technology, it is based on cross-modulation technology. It is designed as semi-modular and can be used by its own, or as a part of the eurorack system.

    It is made for generating standard sounds and sound effects, as well as for extremely changing their sound while playing, converting it too complex structured noises. It has full manual hands-on controls (switches and knobs), as well as it can be controlled by CV (control voltage).

    How does it differ from other synthesizers?

    Early Muscarin synthesizers were made only for sound experiments and could be classified as noise generators, although it always was a powerful instrument, combining additive, subtractive, FM and Cross-modulation synthesis. Later it was decided to fully reconsider the concept of Muscarin, to widen its range of use, adding new functions, without limiting its noise abilities, and making it more universal and flexible. With this purpose, it was designed as 3u eurorack and has a lot of inputs and outputs.

    Muscarin is able to generate bass, lead, piano, organ, violin sounds. But it’s major difference is cross-modulation, which helps to create complex, multifactorial noises, and noise effects, as well as lo-fi drum and percussion sounds.

    Technical specifications:

    - Muscarin core - 4x VCO based on square wave, cross-modulation control "Bias", control by CV full range linear or 1v \ oct (4-octave range; 32-500 + Hz).
    - LFO is a low-frequency oscillator, has two waveforms square and triangular.
    - EG AR envelope generator. Can both receive an external gate signal, synchronize with the LFO, and automatically generate an envelope.
    - VCF filter \ saturator 12db\oct has two modes of cutting high or low frequencies.
    - VCA \ Gate-5x, voltage controlled amplifiers. They stand one on each generator before the filter and one on the common output. In their heart are the vactrols. That is very much reflected in the sound. Management of both internal and external sources of CV.

    Input and output connectors - 16x

    inputs:

    4x VCO frequency CV control
    4x VCA\Gate CV control
    1x Main VCA\Gate CV control

    1x Envelope AR in
    1x External signal in

    Outputs:

    1x Main out
    1x LFO out

    - The front panel is made of plexiglass
    - You can choose as a desktop version in a wooden case (pine, CNC milling) and as a module for Eurorack without a case.
