Evolver is a monophonic (one voice) synthesizer. Four oscillators in total: two analog, two digital. Analog Oscillator waveshape are Sawtooth, Triangle, Saw-Triangle, and Pulse (with voltage-controlled analog Pulse-Width modulation) Digital Oscillators select from 96 wavetables from the Prophet-VS (128 x 12 bits), and 32 user-loadable (via MIDI) Wavetables (128 x 16 bits) Hard Sync on the analog oscillators FM and Ring Mod on the digital oscillators Separate Glide per oscillator Real voltage-controlled analog filters - not digital recreations. 4-pole/2-pole switchable lowpass, fully resonant. There are two separate filters, one for the left channel and one for the right. Analog Voltage Controlled Amplifiers (VCA), again one for each channel. Stereo audio inputs; Noise generator Envelope Follower and Peak Detect from External Input to use as modulation sources External Input can be used to gate envelopes and/or step the Sequencer Three snappy ADSR envelopes Four LFOs (sync with sequencer and MIDI) Dual tunable feedback loops; modulate frequency and amount Delay/Chorus/Flange effects 3 Banks of 128 Programs for 384 total Programs - dump to/from MIDI 16 x 4 Analog-style sequencer - syncs with MIDI Extensive Modulation capabilities, including audio-range modulation Easy to program matrix-style front panel Evolver is 10.75" wide, 6" deep, and 1.5" high (27 x 15 x 4 cm)
