Description
Lifeforms System 201

Interactive inspiration machine. Touch to begin. A complete modular performance synthesizer, the Lifeforms System 201 packs the Lifeforms SV-1 analog synthesizer voice and a Lifeforms KB-1 pressure sensitive keyboard controller into the Structure EP-96, pairing huge sonic potential with maximum control. Anchored by the classic Pittsburgh Modular filter and two full range analog oscillators packed with harmonically rich waveforms, the Lifeforms System 201 offers a rich sound palette with the flexibility of an open, fully patchable analog voice architecture. The pressure sensitive keyboard maximizes the creative process with arpeggios, sequences, triggers, voltage memory and more.


Interactive Analog Power

Overflowing with sonic potential, the Lifeforms System 201 houses a refined analog synth engine ready to explore new aural territories. The feature set includes everything you need to create unique synth sounds. Roaring bass, shimmering leads, lush pads and warm drones are only a few knob turns away.

Two larger-than-life, next-generation analog oscillators start you off on your audio journey with all the classic waveforms: sine, triangle, sawtooth, pulse, and square. As a bonus, on Oscillator 1 we have included our exclusive blade wave, allowing for cutting-edge sounds new to the analog realm. Combined with two sub octave generators, the oscillator cores of the Lifeforms SV-1 are the perfect base for sonic sculpting. Modulation is handled with a well curated set of tools: a dedicated analog LFO, noise, sample and hold, and a clock syncable digital LFO. Oscillator 2 can also be used as a voltage controllable low frequency oscillator to create complex west coast synthesis style FM timbres.

The true sonic character of the System 201 comes from the filter. Rich and thick, the sound of the revered Pittsburgh Modular Filter is unmistakable. Absolutely stunning harmonic character with voltage control over the entire frequency range. A provided attenuverter lets you dial in exactly how much CV to feed the frequency input, even inverting the input for dramatic changes in frequency response. Separate highpass, lowpass, and bandpass patch points are provided for an even larger tonal palette.

A robust feature set with a fluid, sleek interface empowers you to create vibrant and thick tones. The included pressure sensitive keyboard controller allows you to control it. The Lifeforms KB-1 provides a multi-function, expressive, capacitive touch keyboard designed for performance. The KB-1 contains a powerful one octave pressure sensitive keyboard complete with arpeggiator, step Sequencer, preset voltage memory array, and a pair of multi-mode trigger pads. Eleven patchable outputs and a deep feature set enable you to cover new sonic territory with an unprecedented level of control.
