MFOS | Sound Lab Ultimate


The MFOS Sound Lab ULTIMATE is simply put, one of the coolest things you will ever build with your own two hands. If you've always wanted to build your own analog electronic music synthesizer, the MFOS Sound Lab ULTIMATE may well be exactly what you've been waiting for. 

The MFOS Sound Lab ULTIMATE is the completely new single board mono-synth from MFOS with the sickest set of features you'll find on one PC board:

Three Musically Accurate VCOs (sawtooth and variable width rectangular wave forms, pulse width modulation, hard-sync, log and linear CV inputs)
VCOs provide plenty of tracking range. Listen to the samples below.
White Noise Generator
Active Mixer (for VCOs, noise and external input)
Voltage Controlled LP Filter (12db/Oct doubles as a sine wave oscillator)
Voltage Controlled Amplifier (log response)
Attack Release Envelope Generator
Two Low Frequency Oscillators (square, ramp, tri and sawtooth waveforms)
Repeat Gate Generator (doubles as another square wave LFO)
Sample & Hold (with variable sample rate and glide)
Attenuator Bank (for an infinite variety of modulation patches)
Patch Panel Design (provides infinitely variable combinations of sounds)
Professionally machined panels and PC Boards available from MFOS

Sound Lab ULTIMATE "Expander" also available for added flexibility.

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.

Manuals, patches etc.
