Analogue Solutions Leipzig-SK
Free Analogue Solutions T-Shirt with Purchase
Evolving from its namesake Leipzig (module/rackmount) and Leipzig-K (keyboard-endowed) analog monosynth predecessors, Analogue Solutions Leipzig-SK goes further by incorporating an eight-step analog sequencer that can be used to produce simple melodic lines as well as acting as a modulation source to affect filter cutoff (or to create additional effects, depending on other control settings). VCO1, VCO2 and the VCF are all available as sequencer destinations. Seemingly simple yet favorably flexible, the step sequencer can be creatively controlled (clocked) by multiple sources at audio frequencies (using VCO2 as a clock source), or using the output of the sequencer itself as an audio source to be 'played' via MIDI while the eight step controls then alter the waveform/tonal content, for example — such are the adventurous advantages of packaging an analog step sequencer with a true analog monosynth!
The entire design is traditional early 80s analog voice and modulation circuitry, comprised entirely of discrete components and op-amps (except, of course, for the digital sequencer controller and MIDI-CV interfacing). Since Leipzig-SK is a strictly no-memory affair, no controls are quantized, resulting in an authentically vintage sound replete with musically desirable quirks and subtle artifacts (much in the same way that, say, a valve amp or vinyl record adds sonic character) — unlike some other modern 'analog' synths that arguably sound almost as perfect as DSP analog modeling.
With electronic percussion having influenced the choice of routings, Leipzig-SK boasts a huge range of modulation possibilities to facilitate creating the widest possible range of sounds, including deep basses, sound effects, analog loops and (obviously) electronic drum sounds.
