ABOUT Simple kind of "expander" for voice doubling since it is just an oscillator with LFO

.. btw: beside the Oberheim SEM one of the first expanders ever made when thinking of the big brother - but the little something in between but it is an expander ;)
ABOUT Eine Art Expander mit einfach nur einem Oszillation mit LFO (zwecks Dopplung oder als Sequencerklangmodul). Es war neben dem Oberheim SEM überhaupt einer der ersten Expander. Aber sehr viel simpler. Der Big Brother war dann etwas mehr…
DETAILS quite slow LFO and VCO, very simple for adding to other synths
DETAILS Dies ist eine Art Erweiterung welche aus einem VCO und einem LFO besteht - alles sehr einfach gehalten, zum Andicken anderer Synths ohne Schnörkel.
SOUND simple basses with power , sort of expansion for CV/gate synthesizers - just a VCO with LFO
SOUND einfache struktur zum andicken oder für bässe und co, anhängen an andere Synthesizer via CV/gate. Es ist einfach nur ein Oszillator mit LFO

ARP known or written as Alan R. Pearlman formerly Tonus Inc.

The second best known synth company in the early 70ies. Alan R.Pearlman founded the Tonus Inc in the US and later changed to ARP. they where the big ones beside Moog until the polyphonic synths came. the Odyssey and ARP2600 were a good addition to the Moogs and sounded less "typical moog". After the hard struggle making a guitar synth (the avatar sold about 300 times) they changed to a very innovative new synth, the Chroma but closed their doors in the early/mid 80ies and sold it to CBS (which was sold to Rhodes/Fender).

ARP Trigger info: gate pulse in/out 8-10V GROUND to positive.
EDP gate pulse out: 'S-Trig' (like moog and some korgs) and 9V GROUND to positive.
