Notes (useful for those unfamiliar with the original Syncussion):

LFO

  • Setting the LFO to off (LED unlit) disables it
  • However, behind the scenesĀ  the LFO is still the sample source for the S/H.
  • Mod Depth does nothing if the LFO is not activated. This is behaviour inherited from the Syncussion.

S&H

  • The S/H affects the VCO frequency.
  • Each hit/trigger generates a new frequency.
  • As mentioned above, the LFO is the sample source for the S/H.

WIDTH

  • “Width” is Syncussion-language for “VCF cut-off frequency”

Width: 10hp
Max Depth: 29mm
Power: 125mA @ +12V / 35mA @ -12V
