The AJHSynth MiniMod System is a faithful re-creation of the early vintage MiniMoog Model D monosynth and since its introduction six years ago it has become a modern day classic which has featured on countless recordings, film scores and live performances. We took the mighty Model D circuitry and translated it into individual Eurorack modules, to combine these powerful vintage synth sounds with the endless patching and modulation possibilities that the Eurorack modular system offers. All of the modules are individually available, so you can tailor a system to your own requirements. Need a Model D with five VCO’s? Looking for endless modulation possibilities including voltage control of PWM, VCF resonance and key velocity? Or perhaps you’d like to try it with an external diode ladder filter or a vintage style SEM filter instead of the classic transistor ladder VCF? The MiniMod system is capable of all of this and much, much more.
Next Phase Phaser
We took the very best sounding vintage analogue phaser circuitry and then expanded it and added lots of extra features to create our award winning AJHSynth Next Phase module. Generally a phaser only offers one fixed type of phasing effect, which is determined by the phaser circuit used, however now the choice is yours! The Next Phase can be switched to be either a 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 or 12 stage Phaser, and features an ingenious feedback routing switch which allows a different stage to be selected for the Emphasis (resonance) path, this vastly increases the palette of available phasing sounds. It includes two inputs with independent Level Controls, a Phase “Colour” Control, stereo outputs and an inbuilt LFO. There are CV inputs for voltage control of both Phasing Depth and Emphasis (Resonance) levels, so these can be fully controlled from other Eurorack modules or external voltage sources.
A ring modulator for musicians who usually find ring modulators boring! The award winning Ring SM is one of our most popular modules, a three in one solution with Ring Modulation, Sub Bass generation and five channel Audio or CV mixing. It has a very unique and warm sounding discrete transistor ring modulator section with three inputs, X, Y & Z , along with two very musical sounding “shaped sinewave” Sub Bass generators that can create -1 Octave and -2 Octave sub bass sounds from basic oscillator ramp, triangle and square waveforms, and lastly a discrete transistor five channel mixer based on the famous discrete transistor CP3 design from the early 900 series modular system.
Entropic Doom Noise Generator
The Entropic Doom takes noise and tuned noise to a whole new level, it can almost be described as an oscillator for noise, or Noisillator as we like to call it. Traditionally in modular synthesis we use either white or pink noise and then treat it through envelopes and filters to give various effects, however the Entropic Doom takes modular noise creation to places it’s never been before!
We have CV inputs to allow voltage control of both Frequency and Resonance, and also a 1V/Oct input so that we can "play" the noise in tune from a keyboard or sequencer. In addition we have a separate XOR based Ring Modulator and a Cmos gate based VCA sub modules. These can be used independently from and simultaneously with the Noisillator circuitry.
Sample, Hold & Slew
Go way beyond regular Sample Hold and Slew functions with this powerhouse Eurorack module. The unmatched feature set includes Sample & Hold and Track and Hold generators which feature a unique and very useful restriction control, an analogue Noise Source with Colour shaping and clipped Noise options, a wide range Clock Source and Linear or Exponential Slew with Gate and Inverted Gate control, all in only 12 HP of rack space.
It can generate random and pseudo random control voltages, staircase waveforms, deliberate aliasing and down-sampling of audio signals, portamento type effects, adjustable audio range noise and much more.
FFB914 Fixed Filter bank
Fixed filter banks offer very useful sound sculpting and shaping of audio signals in modular synthesiser systems. The new FFB914 features fourteen vintage style fixed frequency, active inductor based filters. There is a LP and a HP shelf filter, along with twelve BP filters set at half octave interval spacings, which range from 125 Hz through to 5.8kHz.
The individual bands are split to left and right channels, with an inbuilt cross-fader which allows manual and Voltage Controlled panning between banks. An additional voltage controlled Wet-Dry cross fader mixes between the treated signal and the dry or external signal, and a resonant feedback loop is also included.
Gemini 2412 Dual VCF
Sometimes you just need lots of control over your filtering! The Gemini 2412 is based around two beautiful sounding and completely independent vintage SEM style filters which each have LP, HP, BP and Notch filtering outputs; these are combined with a clever central mixing bus for both audio and frequency control voltages which allows the two VCF's to be combined in either serial or parallel modes, and VCF1 can be inverted against VCF2. So the two VCF's can be combined to behave as a 24dB SEM filter, vocal formant filter and much more!
The inputs on both filters can also be overdriven for a bit of extra grit and distortion, and unlike the original SEM filters we can even push them into self oscillation with the dedicated jumpers on the rear panel. With the central mixing bus we can also cross fade between the two filters using just a single control voltage, all things considered the Gemini 2412 is one of the most versatile and useful Dual VCF’s ever.
Sonic XV Waveshaping Filter
A punchy diode ladder filter that includes wave shaping…if you need to add some excitement to your filtering then you need the Sonic XV! Because of its diode ladder topology it sounds quite different from the MiniMod transistor ladder filter, it could be described as more up front and punchy.
The Sonic XV features the circuitry and sound of the filter section from the vintage Musonics Sonic V synthesiser, one of the earliest of the diode ladder filter designs. In addition to the regular 24dB Low Pass output we have added a 6dB Low Pass output and a Bandpass output, and we have included full voltage control of the resonance.
A unique feature is the added wave shaping on the input and the resonance loop - feed in a waveform with low harmonics such as a sinewave or triangle and the inbuilt wave folders can add harmonics to the sound to give the filter section something rather richer to process, with these waveshapers we can add to a sound as well as subtract from it.
The wave-folding amount can be voltage controlled and we also have a three way Input Wave Bias switch for further variation, and the wave-folding wet / dry mix can be adjusted with the IN Mix and RES Mix controls.
We designed the MiniMod VCO originally as part of our MiniMod system, however it has quickly become one of our most popular modules in its own right and is the go to VCO for thousands of musicians looking for a massive, vintage analogue sound. Not too surprising really, as the discrete transistor oscillator core is based on the early and very rare RA Moog Model D oscillator design, and no one would ever describe that as thin and weedy!
It lends itself very well to live performance too with its front panel octave switching, front panel and external CV control of PWM, Exponential and linear modulation and its distinctive hard Sync option.
