But, it's worth trying, so here's my idea.
It's a 3 osc synth, 3vcf, and 3vca's. LFO's and EG's will all be digital, thanks to cv2 . Basically that should be enough to give one complex voice, or use all 3 individually for simple poly. The idea is that it's usable for most standard playing w/out any patching, and all settings would be saved.. basically like a virtual analog synth.
The down side is it would need more than 8cv's. At a minimum, 16. 3 vca, 3 filt freq, 3 filt res, 3 osc tune, 3 osc pwm (and I'm over 16).. So then I'd still want 3x osc fm.
Analog implementation would be 3 oscillators with their 4 wave outs going to analog switches (like the CGS analog switch matrix. Gate=switch closed), to select the wave. The selected wave to another switch to select the filter mode (the filters I'd likely use have 3 in's, but you could put the switches on the output if they have 3 outs), then from the filters to the 3 VCA's, mix the signal and out. Few other details and switches, but that's about it. I think the switches could be controlled by douts.
I'll attach a quick sketch of a panel I made. I use the "frac rack" format.. 3u. It's 10 frac units long (1.5" per u) which is the size that fits in a standard 19" rack.
It's dirty, incomplete, things aren't aligned, but it's a general idea of what I want to build. All the jacks at the bottom are copy/pasted from something else, so they're not really dividers. Those would be the jacks for all the parameters (vco, lfo, vcf, etc in's and out's) for standard CV control. Big circles are buttons, small circles are LED's
So that's my dream project. Is there any way the CV2 could control multiple aouts? Even multiple CV2's, but for the idea to work they'd all have to be controlled by one primary cv2, to set and store the parameters.
or, is there a different way to accomplish the same thing?
