a-113 subharmonic generator
price : $335.00
the doepfer a-113 module requires +5v power. when using it in a doepfer case, an a-100 ad5 +5v adaptor board is required.
module a-113 is a new sound source that derives from an incoming pulse signal four so-called subharmonics. the term subharmonics was introduced by oskar sala in connection with his so-called mixtur-trautonium.
a subharmonic means in this context a sawtooth wave whose frequency is derived from a master frequency and the master frequency is an integer multiple in the range of 1...24 of the subharmonic - in other words:
the master frequency is divided by an integer 1...24 to obtain the subharmonic. pay attention that the output waveform of a subharmonic is sawtooth (as also used in the original trautonium) and not sine. the
term subharmonics is somewhat misleading. the master frequency comes e.g. from an a-110 or a-111 to the frequency input of the a-113. the frequency dividers of the 4
subharmonics is adjusted with up/down buttons as displayed with 2 character led displays. the subharmonics are available as single outputs and as mix output with adjustable levels for the subharmonics.
two gate type control inputs enable to select between 4 different mixtures, i.e. 4 different settings of the frequency dividers. in the
original trautonium these are controlled by foot switches to switch between 3 mixtures while playing (the original trautonium has only 3
mixtures available but with the 2 gate inputs of the a-113 four different settings can be adressed).
additionally the a-113 features a mixture memory with 50 presets. each preset consists of 4 mixtures that can be selected with the gate inputs, each mixture contains the values of the 4 frequency
these additional trautonium modules are available: trautonium manual a-198 & the trautonium filter a-104.
inputs: master frequency (rectangle/pulse input), foot contr. 1 + 2 (gate 1+2)
outputs: 4 single outputs, 1 mixture output.
this module has a maximum current draw of 50ma + 100ma@+5v. it requires 26 te/hp worth of space to fit in a eurorack frame.
