A tale of two modules..

As I continue building up the modules of the "Tribute" system, for my own set and also for the first of the extra sets for lucky buyers, I have looked at what is beyond the basic set. I was fortunate to have some extra original submodules and PCBs for some of the less common modules including the rare Universal Active Filter (UAF), Lag Processor, and Ring Modulator. Unfortunately the discrete dual transistors used in the UAF means that it will not be possible to make many of them, most likely only 4, before having to do an upgrade of the parts with a resultant possible change in characteristics. I have built up the first UAF using an original 1122 submodule, original main PCB and a new front panel to match everything else in my system. The end result is great both visually and sonically! The Lag Processor and Ring Modulator [...]

Our tribute to the Emu Modular

It's great to be back in the Analogue Synth world again after the long break due to a busy few years at work flying airliners. Now I have some time available and I can get back into doing what I enjoy. I had always planned to sort out the Emu modular parts, (mainly a collection of sub modules) that I had from the 90s but never thought I would go so far as recreating a complete Emu modular system! So how did it all start? Back in 1992 I was offered a modular system by a pawn shop in Madison Wisconsin who had had the system for 8 years with no one knowing what to do with it. They couldn't tell me much about it other than it had aluminium front panels and it sounded like someone's home built. I bought it unseen mainly out of curiosity and when it [...]

Exclusively Analogue is back….

Hello one and all. For those that can cast their minds back as far as the 1990s you may be familiar with Exclusively Analogue, what we did and what we built. For anyone that can't quite reach that far back in to the mists of time (or weren't interested the first time round) here's a quick refresher. We designed and built The Aviator in 1993 after working with a number of acts including Erasure, Emerson Lake and Palmer and the Human League. Over the period of 3 years a total of 35 Aviators made their way to distant shores to great acclaim. Here's what they looked like. It's now 2012 and Exclusively Analogue is making a return with something new. That "something new" has already started to create a buzz across internet forums far and wide and we will shortly be in a position to tell you more. For now [...]
