The MINI MATRIX is an excellent way to economically connect together all the modules. Based on the matrix of the ‘Putney’ VCS3 synthesiser designed by EMS. The left vertical row contains six inputs normalised to six DC accurate buffers and the top horizontal row contains six outputs. Redundancy is a method of increasing functionality by reducing the number of connections. For example, using only one knob to mix two signals. The NODE PROC are manual/voltage controls that can be inserted to nodes in the MATRIX.
The complexity of sound synthesis becomes a matter of perception
You can self-modulate the three LFO’s using normalisation
B pulse (triangle wave) modulated by LFO C
Connecting a ‘click’ into a resonant filter to alter the timbre.
LFO B sync. can be synced to LFO C using a switch.
LFO B is used to gate the envelope generator ‘DUAL ENV’
The TRIPLE LFO can used to create rhythmic ‘shuffle’ effects
Connecting an external input line level can re-clock the LFO.
You can stop the second LFO when the the switch is down
The positive pulse of the second LFO is suitable to clock sequencers and envelope generators.
The third LFO C produces triangle and pulse waves
