PAIA FatMan Analog MIDI Synth Model 9308

    Description
    The FatMan has all of the features that give analog it's big bottom and punch in a MIDI controlled package. The classic Voltage Controlled normalization is brought up to date with a Velocity CV not available on pre-MIDI synths. Pitch wheel modulation is supported and Pitch and Velocity CVs and gate signal are provided on the front panel for driving PAiA or other linear response synthesizer modules.

    And all those knobs. They invite experimentation and invention in ways that a single control with functions buried under layers of obscure menus never can. Just a few hours with the FatMan will teach you more about the nature of sound than you might ever learn otherwise. It's as at home in the physics lab as on-stage.

    The FatMan's classic normalization of two VCOs, VCF and VCA is enhanced with MIDI pitch bend and a Velocity Control Voltage routed to both filter and final amplifier. With transpose and offset, pitch covers seven octaves starting from a room-shaking 65 Hz., four octave response under IVIIDI control.

    Is there room in a digital musical universe for analog synthesizers? Must vintage Moogs and ARPs sell for as much today as they did new. And not just as perft pieces; in fact, when their keyboards and cool oiled walnut cases are thrown away and a midi interface added, they sell for lots more. How sad.
