Modular Diary – 100

A few days ago I mentioned coming across a short video demonstrating the unusual Dual Envelope Generator of the EMS Synthi 100. RobertSyrett has since posted his Audulus version of the Synthi Trapezoid Envelope (with curve controls for the rise and fall), and that provided the basis for putting together a version of the Synthi 100 Dual Envelope. As described in the manual, one of the main features is the staggered outputs:

In addition, there is a second output which lags behind the first one by one quarter of a complete trapezoid cycle. Thus the time set for, say ‘on’ in respect of output 1, becomes the attack from output 2, and so on.

I’ve included an external output for the ‘on’ of envelope 1, which I imagine could be used to trigger a second dual envelope module, and so on…
