Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers Lifeforms Foundation 4
An endlessly creative synthesis environment, Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers Lifeforms Foundation 4 dives deep into both east coast and west coast synthesis schools to produce a rewarding sonic palette regardless of the musical destination.
East coast subtraction
Anchored by a powerful pair of oscillators with a full complement of waveforms rich in harmonics and modulation options, three resonant filters, a pair of four-stage envelopes and deep MIDI options, Lifeforms Foundation 4 is the perfect choice for east coast-style subtractive synthesis. The onboard MIDI can be patched up to create monophonic or true duophonic synth voices and can be controlled with the built-in arpeggiator — everything from Berlin school electronic music to dirty funk bass lines is just a few patch cables away.
West coast chemistry
The same complex oscillator that sings for the east coast opens to revel even more for the west. FM, non-linear waveshaping and a unique variable response low pass gate drive Lifeforms Foundation 4 deep into west coast synthesis territory. An additional low pass gate, a voltage-controlled multi-function generator, chaotic random generators and a host of utility modules firmly plant the Lifeforms Foundation 4 flag on west coast soil.
A eurorack synthesizer
Lifeforms Foundation 4 is not simply a collection of eurorack modules pieced together to fill a case: all of the modules in Lifeforms Foundation 4 were designed simultaneously as a single monolithic synthesizer to ensure that it sounds and feels like a complete instrument. While Lifeforms Foundation 4 synthesizer functions as a standalone instrument, it is also a 100% eurorack-compatible modular synthesizer made up of 12 individual eurorack format synthesizer modules which can be removed, reorganized and replaced with Pittsburgh Modular or other eurorack-compatible modules. Housed in Pittsburgh Modular's Structure EP-208 road case, Lifeforms Foundation 4 has room to grow; the additional space allows a nearly infinite number of expansion options. The included black plastic blank panel can easily be trimmed as new modules are added to keep the case looking clean.
