Pittsburgh Modular | Lifeforms Foundation EVO
|An instrument designed for deep exploration of both east and west coast synthesis styles while showcasing the full depth of the Lifeforms sound and design philosophies, the Lifeforms Foundation Evo is our flagship modular synthesizer.
The Lifeforms Foundation Evo is a deeply rich and creative laboratory packed with all the tools necessary for late night sonic diversions and inspiring live performances. A set of complex oscillators, pressure sensitive performance controller, multiple arpeggiators, multiple sequencers, voltage controlled analog delay, chaotic random cv and gate generators, and multiple filter types are just the tip of the iceberg.
East Coast Mastery
Four beefy analog oscillators with a full complement of waveforms rich in harmonics and modulation options, three resonant filters, a pair of four stage envelopes, and deep midi options, the Lifeforms Foundation Evo is the perfect choice for maximum east coast style subtractive synthesis. The Lifeforms Foundation Evo can be patched up to create massive four oscillator monophonic or true duophonic dual oscillator synth voices, and can be controlled with the built-in pressure sensitive keyboard, or with any combination of included sequencers and arpeggiators.
West Coast Chemistry
The same set of complex oscillators that sing for the east coast open to reveal even more for the west. FM, non-linear waveshaping, and a unique variable response lowpass gate drive the Lifeforms Foundation Evo deep into west synthesis territory. An additional lowpass gate, voltage controlled multi-function generator, chaotic random generators, pressure sensitive controller, voltage controlled analog delay, and a complete set of utility modules firmly plant the Lifeforms Foundation Evo flag on west coast soil.
A Eurorack Synthesizer
The Lifeforms Foundation Evo is not simply a collection of eurorack modules pieced together to fill a case. All of the modules in the Lifeforms Foundation Evo were designed simultaneously as a single, monolithic synthesizer to ensure that it sounds and feels like a complete instrument. While the Lifeforms Foundation Evo Synthesizer is designed to function as a standalone instrument, it is also a 100% eurorack compatible modular synthesizer. Housed in our Structure EP-208 road case, the system is made up of 15 individual eurorack format synthesizer modules which can be removed, reorganized, and replaced with Pittsburgh Modular or other eurorack compatible modules.

|LFO||Low Frequency Oscillator||Sub||Sub Oscillator|
|VCF||Voltage Controlled Filter||VCA||Voltage Controlled Amplifier|
|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.|
