quote: The AvrX Waveshaping Wavetable Synthesizer is the result of countless hours of discussions, programming and soldering. Finally we are ready to present the finished result!
AvrX has been developed by Johan Severinsson and Jonas Karlsson in Linköping, Sweden, with a little help from our friends. The synthesizer has been built in five copies.
We wanted to expand the possibilities of the synthesizer by building an innovative and flexible instrument that is also easy to use. The waveshapers, for example, lets the user choose from a long list of algorithms that range from subtle to total sound destruction. Two analog filters shape the sound in many different ways by their lowpass, bandpass and highpass outputs, and the routing through them is selectable from parallel to serial. The synthesis possibilities are further expanded by the wavetables that can be modulated by any modulator.
The modulation routing is extremely flexible, allowing connections from any modulation source to any destination. A modulation source can be connected to any number of destinations at the same time. All LFO waveforms are available simultaneously, and you can sync the periods to MIDI clock. Two eight step modulation sequencers allow complex rhythmic sound shaping.
