Technosaurus | Selector


The Selector series by Technosaurus are high quality Swiss made analog modular systems with all the benefits of modern day technology! Like any modular system, patch chords are used to route signal between the various modules in your system to create all kinds of analog sounds and effects. There are 11 modules available covering all the basics of modular synthesis. There's even a MIDI module with 8 analog outputs so you can integrate these systems into your MIDI/keyboard studio! They are excellent systems for anyone interested in learning how to create and program modular synthesizers and they can create some pretty impressive sounds too!

The Selector comes in several standard configurations as well as custom built systems.

System A is a rackmountable 6-unit high wooden cabinet and because of it's small size, is the only System with no patchbay, all the patchings between the modules are hard-wired. The Basic system contains 3 VCO, VCF 2, Dual ENV, LFO, VCA, and Control MIDI modules.

System B is a rackmountable 9-unit high wooden cabinet. It's the same as the System A except it comes with room for the patchbays, located beneath the modules.

System C is a wooden cabinet with ergonomically angled upper and lower 19 inch racks and patchbays in the middle. Basic systems contain 3 VCO, 2 VCF 2, 2 ENV, Dual ENV, 2 LFO, 2 VCA, 2 Triple Resonators, and Control MIDI modules.

System D is the largest system so far with two 38 inch racks with patchbays in the middle. Basic systems contain 6 VCO, 4 Octal Subharmonic Oscillators, 3 VCF 2, 3 Dual ENV, 2 Triple Resonators, 4 LFO, 4 VCA, and Control MIDI modules.

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.
