Modulation Orgy Model 2260 launches from Synthetic Sound Labs


“We think you’ll find the 2260 Modulation Orgy to be the most fun you’ve ever had with a LFO!”

“The Best Product Name We’ve Heard This Year At The NAMM Show 2012” – SynthTopia

Impressive words indeed for this new module from the wizards over at Synthetic Sound Labs.

They write:

“The SSL 2260 Modulation Orgy LFO is the illegitimate Euro cousin to our 1260 Tap Tempo LFO, and is a special module indeed. You can set the LFO frequency by tapping the TAP button, supplying a periodic gate to the SYNC input, or by changing the Tempo CV. You can build tap tempo effects vibratos and tremolos, tap tempo controlled drum machines or tap tempo sequencer clocks. Or use it the other way around – control the 2260 tempo with a sequencer! You can even use multiple 2260s to create polyrhythmic LFOs using the built-in Multiplier ratios. Awesome possibilities!”

Eight different waveforms can be produced — ramp up, ramp down, pulse, triangle, sine, sweep, lumps, and random — and all (except random) can be altered by the wave distortion CV.

A tempo multiplier allows the LFO frequency to be set at 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 3 and 4, allowing half, double and triplet times.

The LFO tempo, multiplier, waveform selection, wave distortion, and output level are all voltage-controlled using 0 to +5V. Negative voltages are are permitted, but may sometimes cause unexpected results.

The LEVEL CV input responds linearly to 0 to +5V and is normalled to +5V so that with no input, the 2260 outputs are at maximum. This convenient input can frequently save a separate VCA when doing voltage controlled modulation depth.
