The Basic Starter System is a special combination of Doepfer modules which does not follow the usual synthesizer paths. It invites to experiment and supports "modern modular thinking".
It is mounted in a 6U high wooden cabinet equipped with with a strong power supply which is usable worldwide.
The enclosure is a LC6 lowcost wooden case with 6U heights and it has two rows for mounting Eurorack modules ,each has a width of 84 HP.
Usable depth for modules: 80mm near the power supply (bottom right), ca. 100mm elsewhere.
Power: Strong switching power supply and two busboards, each with 14 module connectors.
The power supply accepts mains voltages from 100 V to 240 V and can be used all over the world. It provides you with:
- +12 V: 2 A
- +5 V: 4 A
- -12 V: 1.2 A
The Starter System 1 contains following modules:
- A-190-4 MIDI / USB to CV / gate / sync interface
- A-160 clock divider ... well, for dividing clock signals
- A-110-2 basic analog VCO with 4 wave forms
- A-118 noise generator / random generator
- A-148 dual sample & hold generator
- A-138c polarizing mixer with signal attenuation and inversion
- A-106-5 12dB multi mode filter fro mthe Oberheim SEM
- A-132-3 dual VCA with linear/exponential characteristic
- A-180-2 multiples for splitting and routing signals
- A-140 ADSR type envelope
- A-171-2 complex function generator e.g. for modulating
- A-147-2 LFO with voltage control of frequency and a delay function
The modules occupy one row of 84HP width in total, the remaining row is covered with two 42HP wide blank panels. Expanding the modular system is possible for that reson.
WIth a long trajectory building synths, MIDI keyboards and designing bespoke devices for music pioneers Kraftwerk, Dieter Doepfer decided to design his own modular synthesizer in 1995 based on existing electrical and mechanical specifications of lab equipment he used during his years at university. The official presentation of the system at 1996 Frankfurt Musikmesse caught everyone by surprise and created lots of interest. After Doepfer published the specifications on his website, many instrument designers and engineers saw the potential of the new Eurorack format. Doepfer continues expanding their catalog of over 200 modules (and counting), operating from their modest offices in the outskirts of Munich.
