Electrocomp 200
The Electrocomp 200 is a 2-VCO monophonic synthesizer expander module. It did not come with a keyboard but as an expansion module for the 100 or the 101, which included a keyboard. The Electrocomp 200 features two VCOs, which have outputs for sine, triangle, and pulse waveforms, and a noise source. There is a spring reverb, a low-pass VCF, a high-pass VCF, an ADS envelope generator, a ring modulator, a mic preamp, and a dual 3-channel stereo mixer. The eml-200 came in 2 colors, blue and silver. The later ones were silver and the original ones were blue. The blue 200s were also built into larger cases and were a bit heavier than the more recent silver ones.
