Analogue Systems RS-510e Trapezoid Generator


The Trapezoid Generator module is made under license of the EMS and is a remake of the EMS envelope shaper known from VCS3, Synthi A and AKS. It is a very unique modulator which can be used as a trapeze or triangle shape LFO and/or a attack-hold-decay envelope generator. It's flexible, weird and totally different from an ADSR.
For the real EMS feeling combine the 500e Filter with the 510 Trapezoid :-)



The Trapezoid Generator has Attack, On, Decay, Off parameters. The "Off" parameter can determine a amount of time until the envelope can be re-triggered. A very short "off" time will make the unit loop, changing it into a LFO. VC of Decay time, Gate input and a manual trigger button.
Two signal outputs that can be adjusted in level in polarity with one common knob.
Additionally the module has an internal VCA which explains the Signal in- and output and is being controlled by the trapezoid signal.


Usage with Eurorack:
Analogue Systems' modules are designed solely for use in cases and cabinets made by Analogue Systems. Through the use of adaptors or adaptor cables, however, it is possible to connect them to Eurorack cases.
Should you chose to use an Analogue Systems module in an Eurorack case, please note that the warranties are thus void and the use occurs at your own risk! If the module is plugged in incorrectly and therefore damaged the customer has to bear any costs for repair and shipping!

Because of the different position of the mounting holes there will be a gap of 0.5HP (= 2.5 mm) when mounting an Analogue Systems module next to a Eurorack module. Take this into consideration when planning your system. Gaps can be covered with 1.5HP wide blank panels by Doepfer.
