Pittsburgh Modular showed us three of their new pre-configured systems. We reviewed a few modules a while back. The first is the System 10 - which is a semi-modular single oscillator synth with normalled connections allowing for patch free operation, though getting stuck in with the supplied cables opens it right up.
System 90 - a hybrig fully modular sytem with two flavours of oscillator - the 2nd gen analog complex waveform oscillator and the DNA Symbiotic Waves oscillator. The filter is the LoPass Gate module which brings the Buchla style filter into the mix.
Foundation 3 - with multi-function filters and envelopes - 1x LoPass FIlter and one Multimode filter, LFO and dual VCA this is the top of the range precongifured synth.
All feature MIDI CV convertors and come with patch cables.

They sound quite unique and that's always a great thing in my book. Can't wait to get my hands on one at some point, which means either on a trip to the states or buying one in or someone lends me one! I love anything that's a bit "away from the normal" ( a term we'd hear often in A level physics lessons, when dealing with light refraction and diffraction) with lots to grab and tweak.

I'd like to see proper System 10 demo. Seems like it should be a great analog monosynth for $650.

How can it be purchased in the UK? Post modular only option?
