Doepfer Trautonium Project Modular Synthesizer

    The realization of the Trautonium within the A-100 is apparent as the Trautonium-specific units Manual A-198, Subharmonic Oscillator A-113 and Filter A-104 seamlessly fit into the A-100 idea. A lot of circuits required to complete the Trautonium already exist as A-100 modules - like master oscillator (VCO), mixers, noise, voltage controlled amplifiers (VCA), envelope generators, low frequency oscillators (LFO), frequency shifter and many more. The Trautonium manual A-198 can be treated as a new control voltage source (like the MIDI-to-CV interfaces A-190 / MCV24 / MCV4, Sequencer A-155, Theremin A-178, Light-controlled CV A-179, Foot controller A-177 or others) to control the pitch of a VCO A-110/A-111, sampler A-112 or - of course - the subharmonic generator A-113. On the other hand the subharmonic generator may be treated as a new sound source like VCO, Sampler, Noise or other sound sources. But it is not imperative to control the subharmonic generator from the Trautonium manual. A MIDI-to-CV interface, sequencer, Theremin or any other control voltage source could do this job as well.

    The new Trautonium modules should be treated the same as all the other modules of the A-100. Of course one could build up a replica of the original Trautonium from the new modules A-198, A-113, A-104 and some other standard modules (VCA, Mixer, and so on) . But you could just as easily control the subharmonic generator A-113 from a Theremin A-178, Light module A-179 or MIDI interface A-190 and modify the sound e.g. with one of the A-100 filters (A-12x), the frequency shifter A-126, vocoder A-129 or Shepard controlled phasers (A-191 + A-125) - or even use the Trautonium Manual A-198 to control a "normal" synthesizer voice (VCO-VCF-VCA-ADSR) possibly with the aid of the quantizer A-156 to obtain exact semitones.
