The PS3100 XS is the latest iteration of Fonitronik the PS3100 Resonators – now in a slimmer 12HP!
THIS VIDEO BELOW IS OF THE OLDER LARGER MODULE, THE NEW SLIMMER MODULE SOUNDS EXACTLY THE SAME. i.e. AMAZING. (headphones recommended for the full frequency response)
But what is it actually? Basically the module incorporates three voltage controlled band pass filters with fixed bandwidth (resonators), using the Dual-Vactrol-based core from the PS3100, and a simple resettable triangle core LFO. By setting the BPFs to different center frequencies and modulating them, we get these nice resonating sounds. Depending on the source waveform and the modulation it might even resemble the human voice. The original purpose, however, was to make string patches sounding more vivid.
Three Band Pass Filters each with:
- CV input + attenuator potentiometer
- initial frequency potentiometer
One summed audio output
One common audio input
One LFO with:
- reset (sync) input
- range switch (slow, fast)
- rate potentiometer
- LFO output
The LFO is normalled to the 3 CV inputs, however, for the 3rd CV input the LFO signal can be inverted.
- Depth 40mm
