Synth Glossary

Granular Synthesis:
The sound is split into small chunks called granules. These may then be processed in various ways to acheive various effects - for example, to stretch a sound (timestreching) the granules will be played back so as to overlap each other. An interesting effect can also be obtained by playing the granules backwards....

Solus
The Solus is a 2 VCO, monophonic analog synthesizer with a 3-octave, 37-note (C-C) keyboard. It, like most ARP synths, features mostly sliders instead of knobs. It was built into a flight-case, with all of its inputs and outputs on the inside of the case lid.

Both VCO's feature a slider selecting variable waveforms from sawtooth to pulse, as well as a slider controlling pulse-width and the amount of pulse-width modulation. VCO2 is syncable to VCO1 and can be detuned. The pulse-width can be modulated by the LFO or the ADSR. The VCF (four-pole, lowpass filter) has controls for frequency, resonance, as well as three sliders controlling modulation amount from the keyboard, the LFO, and the ADSR. It also features a digital ring-modulator and a pitch-bend knob. The back panel features interfaces (in and out) for CV, Gate, and Trig. Also in the back is a footpedal input and External Audio input, as well as high and low outputs.
