Analogue Solutions | Vostock V2


The Vostok may at first glance look like an EMS clone, but it is not. It may share the matrix panel and suitcase style design, but that's where the similarities end. The Vostok has more features packing a powerful amount of modular synthesiser power into one small suitcase.

Utilises the EMS VCS3/AKS style patch panel, but with an with increased 22x22 connection size. The matrix panel gives the patching versatility of a modular without the need for confusing & front-panel interfering patch cables. It's the neatest & most versatile method of creating patches.

Matrix panels alone do not allow interfacing with external synthesizers & signals, so the Vostok also provides a full complement of front panel jack socket patch points for additional internal & external patching & interfacing. 

All circuits are totally analogue with the exception of the MIDI interface.

Velocity As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key. Aftertouch Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.
Values for OSC, LFO, Filter, Envelope are per voice unless stated otherwise.
