Synthesizers.com | QSS44
Synthesizers.com is a company in the USA that makes classic styled custom analog modular systems and sells them over the internet! They offer pre-built systems such as the QSS22 and QSS44 (pictured above) which offer 22 or 44 space wood cabinets, respectively, and a selection of modules plus an optional QKB15S 5-octave studio keyboard which uses and converts MIDI to CV/Gate. Or you can customize your own System by choosing which modules you want them to install for you.
The form factor is the same as Moog Modulars but with an upgraded power supply system. The systems offer hyper-modularity which allows any module to be placed anywhere without rewiring, including power modules. Synthesizers.com modules will fit into Moog modulars and the signal levels are compatible. A wide variety of modules offer a raw, analog sound, including stable oscillators that will track over many octaves, a 24dB ladder filter, a state variable filter, and a 14-bank fixed filter. The 24-step analog sequencers can be daisy-chained for more stages and offer unique control features not found on your typical sequencers.
The QSS Studio Systems use the same traditional patching, routing, knob fiddling and scientific tinkering of old-school modular synthesizers, with all the benefits of today's technology! The user interfaces of most modules include reversible attenuators and mixers to minimize patch cable clutter, and to make patching more intuitive. These synths are perfect for anyone interested in learning to use analog synthesizers in their traditional form. These systems are expandable and affordable compared to those old and unreliable vintage systems! Also available in Portable and Rack systems.

|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.|
