The oscillator of the BLD Mk2 comes equipped with two potentiometers for coarse and fine tuning. In addition, there are two pitch CV inputs. The first FM path features a bipolar attenuator and is normalized to the AR envelope. The second CV input is calibrated to 1 v / octave. Additionally, a sync connector was implemented. Using a potentiometer, you can crossfade between triangle, pulse and saw waveforms. Similar to Cwejman’s VCO-6, the latter can be deformed via the pulse width knob and the PWM CV input. Furthermore, there is a switch for choosing between two types of pulse waves. One contains mostly even harmonics, the other mostly odd harmonics. The oscillator’s level can be set to values ranging from silence to unity gain and finally saturation. The BLD’s noise source may be fed to the filter or the VCA, either before or after the gain stage.
While the first BLD was equipped with a pure low-pass filter design, the Mk2 version can be switched to a band-pass mode. The edge steepness is variable as well. More precisely, you may choose between -24 dB and -36 dB per octave. The cutoff parameter can be altered manually and via the AR respectively AHR envelope. – In positive or negative direction. Furthermore, there is a LPF CV input plus you have the ability to use the second FM channel for key tracking. With most of these options, you may utilize attenuators for adjusting the modulation intensity. High resonance settings make the filter self-oscillate.
AR or AHR envelope can be activated by hand using a button or via a trigger input. Attack, hold and release parameters of the AHR modulator not only feature potentiometers, but CV inputs as well. With the AR circuit, only the release phase can be voltage controlled.
The VCA is influenced by both the envelopes. Additionally, a Velocity CV input was implemented.
We currently do not accept pre-orders for Cwejman modules. For some products, there are waiting lists with pre-orders from the years 2013 to 2017, which are being processed as a matter of priority.
If you’d like to be informed as soon as this module is back in stock, please activate the availability notification via e-mail.
Please note: The number of Cwejman modules is always limited and much lower than the number of interested parties. Therefore, we recommend to order IMMEDIATELY and ONLINE if a Cwejman product becomes available. Enquiries via e-mail or telephone are usually not fast enough.
If the demand is higher than the supply, unfulfillable pre-orders will be deleted. In this case you’ll receive an e-mail. (Pre-orders on the waiting lists mentioned above are excluded from this policy.)
