Synth Glossary

Control input:
An input into part of the synthesizer that allows that bit to be modulated by another part of the synth. For example there is a control input in the amplifier which controls the level of amplification. If a very slow sine wave (an LFO) is patched into this input then the sound will slowly get louder and quieter. If an LFO was patched into the control input of the oscillator instead, then the sound would go higher and lower in pitch....

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.
