Model 37 Voltage Controlled LFO / Utility Oscillator*

185.00

Part of the the original groundbreaking ELF module series - the first to feature faceplate potentiometers on a 2cm wide format - the newly redesigned SMT Model 37 is now armed with dedicated outputs for triangle, sawtooth and square wave outputs. While maintaining it's super hard sync and adjustable FM response, the 1V/oct tracking has been increased to over five octaves, making the M37 the unparalleled cost alternative for multi-voiced modular synthesizers.

 

The Subconscious Model 37 ELF LFO has an identity problem.

While specifically labeled as an LFO, it's massive frequency range 1 cycle per 30 seconds to over 20Hkz and new six-octave 1V/oct tracking range makes it the perfect candidate for utility audio VCO applications. Incorporating a heavily-modified version of the TAU triangle core architecture, the M37 is capable of 1v/oct tracking when the external VC Attenuator is set to the full clockwise position. The 3080 used in it's original core has been replaced with the 13700, a dual device which has allowed for improved response of the reset comparator, and with that enhanced tracking.

A one-shot driven hard Sync input will stop and restart the VCO dead in it's tracks with any input received. So unlike other VCOs, it doesn't require a square wave input to operate.

Further improvement are the M37's switch-selectable Saw/Tri waveform output switch which has been replaced in this new SMT generation with dedicated outputs for Triangle, Sawtooth and Square Wave outputs which are available simultaneously from dedicated output jacks. Further, the Sawtooth output has been phase-reversed so it is now a downward saw, which is widely accepted as being more useful in the low frequency spectra. When used in conjunction with the Sync input it will act as a user-triggerable decay-only envelope.
