Pittsburgh Modular Voltage Research Laboratory

The Pittsburgh Modular Voltage Research Laboratory gives you a completely organic analog synthesizer. Boasting a unique feature set where every function on the Voltage Research Laboratory has been influenced by the natural world. Wildly experimental and extremely deep; Voltage Research Laboratory gives you a sonic playground for exploring the fringes of analog synthesis.

Voltage Research Lab is also 100% Eurorack modular format compatible; comprised of 3 separate euro rack modules. All housed together in a purpose-built, handmade euro rack enclosure. More than just a collection of tools and functions, the Voltage Research Laboratory is a unique modular synthesizer synth designed to reward deep experimentation.

Generation

Additionally, originating with a complex oscillator pair, the Voltage Research Laboratory utilizes a wide range of shaping and manipulation options. Moving away from basic geometric shapes to more harmonically rich tones, as well as a custom wave folder with enhanced waveform warping; linear FM; amplitude modulation; ring modulation; waveform cycling; hard sync; and more are available for extreme sonic research.

Voltage Research Laboratory Manipulation

You’ll also find a set of multi-function generators on the Voltage Research Laboratory that work as interactive voltage processing systems. Allowing you to create and modify complex control voltages. These generators act as either voltage controllable envelopes; LFOs; slew generators; and more. While voltage controllable parameters and multiple unison modes create complex and intertwined modulation systems.

Interaction

Another feature on the Voltage Research Lab is its interaction; pulling everything together thanks to two dynamic controllers. Firstly, a unique circuit expanding on the classic low pass gate. While the variable response adds organic depth to the sound of the Lifeforms Voltage Lab. Finally, the multi-mode signal processor features a 12dB resonant filter, VCA, and percussive low pass gate modes.

Dimensional

Additionally, it’s a known fact that natural sounds interact with the world around us. Thanks to Pittsburgh Modular, the Voltage Research Laboratory uses an analog delay to simulate this interaction; creating an artificial sense of time and space. While manipulation of delay time and feedback adds depth and warmth through reverb; chorus; flanger; doppler; slap-back; and echo type effects.

Unstable Systems

What’s more, with the Voltage Research Laboratory, chaos is everywhere. Random gates and control voltages spark uncontrolled reactions, disrupt systems, and generate ideas. Utilizing noise; stepped random CV; a voltage-controlled pseudo-random sequence generator; pitched random CV; pitched random sequences, and random gates to add multiple levels of unpredictability to any patch.

Voltage Research Laboratory – Interactive Touch Controller Module

Finally, intuitive and inspiring; the Lifeforms Touch Controller on the Voltage Research Laboratory replaces the creative restrictions of a traditional chromatic keyboard with a set of fully configurable multi-dimensional touch-pads. While a duophonic touch controller utilizes two sets of five touch-pads; offering a flexible and interactive performance surface.

Performances can also be interpreted with a unique combination of monophonic and duophonic responses. While the channel animator is available to quickly generate complex sequences and glitchy chaos. Above all, the Lifeforms Touch Controller is ideal for your experimental music journey.
