"I borrowed a Space Echo for a week and the first things to do were 1. a dub track 2. youtube video :) No digital equipment used this time, what you see is what is playing. The machines used: Roland Space Echo RE-201, Mackie 802-VLZ3 (mixer), FMR RNLA (compressor) Revox A77 (tape recording, saturation), MFB Synth II (stabs) MFB 522 (drums) Enjoy:)"more
The monophonic Synth 2 is the new flagship for MFB with a storeable user interface, more possibilities to play on and better quality. The classical real analog module with voltage controlled VCOs, VCF and VCA can be run via Midi or with the internal stepsequencer. 25 Sequences with each 32 steps can be edited, combined and performed. There are 50 presets and 49 user sets to store all sound parameters. Noise, external audio and three VCOs come together in the internal mixer where they offer a wide range of sound possibilities. In the 24dB Lowpass filter the unit can resonate itself, be modulated from the LFO or a VCO and has a keyfollower function. There is each one ADSR envelope for each VCA and VCF. The two LFOs with triangle, rect, saw, random can be used as one shot or as a little envelope, too. Over Midi you can play VCF and/or VCA with dynamics. The sequencer can send or receive start, stop and clock. Overall the MFB-SYNTH II is a very cool, complex and inexpensive new monophonic Synthesizer module from Herr Fricke. It can understand CV/Gate for it's 3 oscillators, can be controlled via MIDI and has a great integrated step sequencer.
specs VCO with 3 individual oscillators scaled to volt/octave, with sawtooth, square and/or triangle. VCO2 with additional impulse wave and PWM for square, octave can be set between 4, 8,16` or 32Õ, additional detune amount of plus or minus one octave for VCO's 2 and 3. VCOs can either be modulatied by LFO or VCO 3, VCO1 can be set to SYNC, 2 ringmods are available: VCO1+2, VCO2+3, 24 dB/octave LPFilter by design, emphasis (resonance) up to self oscillation, cutoff can be auto-modulated by LFO or VCO, KEY controls keyboard pitch to cutoff parameter (Keyboard scaling), each an ADSR envelope for VCF and VCA, the VCA can also be modulated by an LFO for characteristic tremolo effects, 2 LFOs with sawtooth, rectangle, triangle and random. LFO can be set to ãOne Shot" mode to be used as simple envelopes, 50 presets and 49 memory locations, incoming velocity information can be used for VCF cutoff or VCA level. Pitch and Modulation wheel are recognized, step sequencer sends or receives MIDI clock, Start and Stop MIDI In/Out, Audio In/Out , CV/GATE In, Power (power supply included)
