"I’ve had fantasies about doing really simple things, and I think if I moved to a different room, I would just start from scratch and just do something really stripped down. Like with the Intellijel Metropolis and the Atlantis, putting those into a case and just going somewhere with headphones and just really getting lost in the gear."more
The Atlantis is heavily inspired by the architecture and sound of the classic Roland SH-101. Just like the 101 it is quick to dial in beautifully rich bass and lead sounds. However this module uses triangle core VCOs (based on the Dixie core) instead of Saw core which respond much more musically to FM. The modulation oscillator can be used as an LFO or VCO (audio rate) and both track very precisely over 8 or more octaves.
Really amazing sound... 2 oscillators built in envelopes.... This thing sounds like a Sh101 on steroids. A great way to get into eurorac modular synths. Pairs really well with The Intellijel Metropolis sequencer.
Been flirting with this for more than a little while. The expense of getting into EuroRack, the black hole it can become after you have...this little beast was just too much to resist and I got on board over the last few months...
1st a case. That kinda sucked cuz it was just that, a case...for months.
Then I scraped together the cash & the gods of Cyber Monday/Black Friday shined on me. I went after a load of long coveted pieces. This remains one of the most seductive bass tones I’ve heard.
Not just a clone of the SH101, it goes further with audio rate LFO, outs to outs, etc.
There’s plenty available out there on the specifics but I know that while I use and abuse this sucker it’s the bass that I can’t get enough of so that’s what I’ll talk about here.
It’s a short conversation-
Rubbery, hard as f**k, and add a little chorus? Favorite bass tone I’ve got. Or at the very least a very close tie. Hits like a weapon- the added bass boost when using higher resonance, the drive, 2 or 4 pole filter to get as nasty or as creamy as you want- I dunno who could ask for more. If you only go this far into modular? This one piece makes it worth it.
