    In addition to it's original architecture there were now separate ADSR's for the filter and envelope. A key follow effect was added to filter section. An Sample and Hold sub oscillator, noise generator, a ring mod effect, and, a mixer section for balancing all sound sources.

A little big monster. It features two DCOs, a fully analog VCF with good behavior, and on the output an analog BBD chorus is provided, using the identical circuitry of Roland Juno-6. The sound is really fat, deep and with fast envelopes when needed. Noise and S&H make a complete setup for this 1-U rack unit.

More units could be daisy-chained via MIDI to build up a discrete analog polyphonic synthesizer, thus sharing the MIDI data across played notes.

It even features CV and Gate connections, so that it could act as a MIDI/CV converter. All MIDI control changes are sent and received in real time, so it is possible to manage it with a knobby MIDI controller.
