FOUNDATION 2.0 - Complete Voice Analog Modular Synthesizer

The Foundation 3 Synthesizer is the next generation of a classic. A standalone, fully modular synthesizer styled after the great monosynths of the past with no hardwired signal path or fixed voice architecture to restrict creativity. Complex waveform oscillators and multiple filters driving an all analog signal path pushes the Synthesizer Foundation 3 to new worlds of musical creativity. An unpatched Foundation offers a clean slate for sonic exploration and sound design. The open format of a modular synthesizer allows for greater control and a deeper understanding of synthesis.

The Foundation 3 Synthesizer is designed to function as a standalone instrument. However, the Foundation 3 is a 100% eurorack compatible modular synthesizer. The system is made up of 13 individual eurorack format synthesizer modules which can be removed, reorganized, and replaced with Pittsburgh Modular or other eurorack compatible modules. The Foundation 3 Synthesizer uses the Pittsburgh Modular Move[104] Case and Power Rail to house and power the modules.

    At the heart of the Foundation 3 Synthesizer is a pair of 2nd generation, complex waveform oscillators. The oscillators offer a full complement of standard waveforms including sine, triangle, saw, and pulse waves in addition to a sub octave generator, modulatable blade wave, and serious modulation options, creating a huge sonic base to build on.

    The Foundation 3 Synthesizer features our classic multimode filter alongside a character rich lopass gate creating an unmatched sonic palate.

    Dual multifunction envelopes offer a wide range of creative potential. Each envelope module functions as a voltage controlled attack and decay or attack, sustain, and release, LFO, envelope follower, slew (portamento) and more.
