The A-100 Basic System 2 contains all the components of BS1, but provides the Midi interface for those who want to integrate the synth into their MIDI setup. MIDI to CV/Gate connections are sent via an internal buss to the corresponding receivers (A-110 VCOs and A-140 ADSRs) unless connections with patch cords are made.
Nevertheless, prior to buying a per-configured basic system we'd rather give you a personal advice regarding your synth setup.
The basic system 2 contains 22 modules. A portable flight case is used as a frame. It can be transported in a patched state as the lid is deep enough. Includes a power supply with 1200mA power.
The note CV and the gate from the MIDI/CV interface are internally sent to the oscillators and the envelope generators via the CV/gate buss. 30 patch cords in mixed lengths are included.
The basic system 2 contains following modules:
- 2x A-110 standard oscillator
- A-114 ring modulator
- A-115 audio divider for creating up to four sub-octaves
- A-116 waveform processor
- A-118 noise and random generator
- A-120 24dB/octave Moog low pass filter
- A-106-6 XP filter, inspired by oberheim Xpander
- A-130 VCA with linear curve, for processing CVs
- A-131 VCA with exponential curve, for processing audio
- A-138a mixer with linear curve, for processing CVs
- A-138b mixer with exponential curve, for processing audio
- 2x A-140 ADSR type envelope with retrigger and inverted outputs
- A-145 standard LFO
- A-146 LFO with variable wave shapes
- A-148 sample & hold generator
- A-160 clock divider for dividing the frequency of a clock
- A-161 clock sequencer, an expander for the A-160
- A-170 slew limiter, for portamento etc.
- A-180 multiples, a passive signal splitter
- A-190-1 MIDI/CV interface. Emits note CV, gate, and clock
The flightcase has a a strong switching power supply and two busboards, each with 14 module connectors.
The power supply provides you with:
- +12 V: 2 A
- +5 V: 4 A
- -12 V: 1.2 A
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.
