Description

Lifeforms System 101
Complete Eurorack Modular Synthesizer

Fully modular analog synthesizer with room to expand. The Lifeforms System 101 pairs the feature rich Lifeforms SV-1 synthesizer voice module with the beautiful Structure EP-96 enclosure and necessary accessories to create an amazing sounding, versatile analog modular synthesizer that works right out of the box. Anchored by the classic Pittsburgh Modular Filter and two full range analog oscillators packed with harmonically rich waveforms, the Lifeforms System 101 offers a rich sound palette with the flexibility of an open, fully patchable analog voice architecture.

Pure Analog Power
Overflowing with sonic potential, the Lifeforms System 101 houses a refined analog synth engine ready to explore new aural territories. The feature set includes everything you need to create unique synth sounds. Roaring bass, shimmering leads, lush pads and warm drones are only a few knob turns away.

Two larger-than-life, next-generation analog oscillators start you off on your audio journey with all the classic waveforms: sine, triangle, sawtooth, pulse, and square. As a bonus, on Oscillator 1 we have included our exclusive blade wave, allowing for cutting-edge sounds new to the analog realm. Combined with two sub octave generators, the oscillator cores of the Lifeforms SV-1 are the perfect base for sonic sculpting. Modulation is handled with a well curated set of tools: a dedicated analog LFO, noise, sample and hold, and a clock syncable digital LFO. Oscillator 2 can also be used as a voltage controllable low frequency oscillator to create complex west coast synthesis style FM timbres.

The true sonic character of the System 101 comes from the filter. Rich and thick, the sound of the revered Pittsburgh Modular Filter is unmistakable. Absolutely stunning harmonic character with voltage control over the entire frequency range. A provided attenuverter lets you dial in exactly how much CV to feed the frequency input, even inverting the input for dramatic changes in frequency response. Separate highpass, lowpass, and bandpass patch points are provided for an even larger tonal palette.

A robust feature set with a fluid, sleek interface empowers you to create vibrant and thick tones. The included MIDI to CV converter allows you to control it. Connected to an external MIDI controller or DAW, the MIDI to CV converter is customizable to any playing style and loaded with extra features such as a 10 note arpeggiator, tap tempo clock, and clock syncable LFO with triangle and quantized random voltage waveforms.
