Analogue Systems RS-95e VCO (Dual Bus)

Overview

The RS95 by Analogue Solutions is a premium, british sounding VCO with waveshaping possiblities. It is based on the RS90 but has more features, predominantly a very special sine wave. The RS95e presented here is technically identical but instead a normal frequency control it features a gorgeous, lockable (!) potentiometer with ten turns. That allows precise fine tune control and adds the look of an EMS synthesizer to the VCO.
Thanks to a new dual-bus concept, this circuit is fully compatible to Doepfer’s Eurorack standard.

Details

The RS95e has three audio outputs: pulse, triangle and sine.
The upper shape control affects the pulse width. The lower shape control not only morphs from a falling sawtooth over triangle to a rising saw (or: ramp) but simultaneously alters the sine wave and produces a kind of smoothed, softer sawtooth. Additionally the saw/sine output is a CV-INPUT for the symmetry of the sine. Very extraordinary feature that all are voltage controllable. The wave shaping is derived from the EMS oscillators but here the PWM and the triangle shape are separated.

The oscillator sync is „soft“ and not only reacts to square waves but works with all waveforms. The frequency control has three switchable modes: STD (standard) with a range of two octaves. -2 is two octaves lower than STD. WIDE mode gives a range from 0.3 Hz - 17kHz and thus allows use of the RS-95 as VC-LFO with waveshaping options! The „vary“ control not only attenuates but also can amplify the pitch CV. It controls linearly from 0V over 1V/oct to 0.4 V/oct

miscellaneous

The Dual Bus version of the RS-95e features two power connectors, meaning it can be directly connected to either an Analog Systems or a Doepfer modular system. – Adapters are no longer necessary.

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.
