before wendys were walters "and ships were made of wood" as the saying goes...or put another way-when bobs & dons were raymonds & laurens: the synths were wrought of glowing glass tubes and vcas shaped the sound
as well as controlled it. trogotronic issued m277 with this in mind. our design offered a high-gain vacuum tube stereo vca without sonic compromise. tube harmonics, bass-heavy compression & stereo imaging are
applied with 2 discrete high-voltage vca circuits.
m277 tube analog vca delivers:
2 tube vcas
2 cv amplitude inputs with attenuator knobs (1 per channel)
2 cv drive inputs with attenuator knobs (1 per channel)
1 cv master panning input & manual knob control
1 cv master panning-drive input & manual knob control
ample gain for use as a stereo external input preamplifier
zero to +5 volt cv-range compatible w/most lfos, envelopes etc.
compression with low-end enhancement
compelling stereo imaging
pannable stereo high-gain tube-overdrive effect
warms cold digital effects & low-voltage solid-state signals
optional high-current power supply = low impact on your rack's "built-in" supply
4 cv lamps: 2 blue (amplitude a & b) / 2 red (drive a & b)
2 slovakian max. gain, twin-triode vacuum tube run at high-voltage
plug & play compatible w/ alternate tubes for auxiliary sonic profiles
the new v4 m277 uses an entirely redesigned power supply delivering quieter, cleaner performance at even higher voltage than the original directly from your euro-rack power supply. demand on the +12v tap is
720ma for the first 10 seconds of warm up. too much demand on rack's available current? being of a thrifty subhuman stock we made sure to continue offering an optional auxiliary supply which takes all current
demand off of your rack's +12v rail making said demand on that tap zeroma when implemented!
use at the end of a patch: rich tube harmonics & brawny compressed low-end add warmth to your cold digital effects / signals while reinforcing plastic sounding low voltage analog sound.
use to portray mono signals as vast stereo audio panoramas: the 2 discrete channels run in parallel add depth to mono signals with organic stereo imaging built into the circuit. the same mono signal can be
dynamically panned & effected via the pan cv input & corresponding knob control.
use as a stereo overdrive effect: the drive cv inputs are discrete (1 for each channel independent of the other) enabling the module to be used as 2 separate cv controlled tube overdrive effects. the pan drive
cv input / control makes the creation of dynamically panning stereo overdrive effects via cv drive a cinch.
use as external input stereo preamplifier: gain afforded by the 277 is more than adequate to make even the tiny signal of a guitar or microphone patched comparable with modular line levels.
+12v rail startup peak current 720ma; avg. 390ma (0ma w/optional aux. supply)
-12v rail peak current 3ma
+5v rail peak current 22ma
12vdc aux. power supply: optional
