Hobbit is a single-board synthesiser based on the popular ASM-1.
It takes the salient features of this unit and combines them
in to a single-board that incorporates pcb-mounted pots and
switches and thus eliminates all wiring.
pcb design is such that it can be mounted directly on to a full-width
3U panel (available later).
is also planned to offer the Hobbit in a stand-alone, portable
enclosure, complete with a 3-octave Touch Keyboard
Features of the Hobbit
- 2x VCO - pulse and sawtooth
outputs. 2x External CV inputs
- 1x Noise Module
- 1x Ring Modulator based on the
MS 20 design
- 1x LFO - with bi-colour LED.
Rectangle and Triangle outputs
1x ADSR (assigned to the VCF)
- 1x ADSR (assigned to the VCA)
- 1x VCF - State Variable Filter
- 1x VCA
- 1x Sample & Hold
- 1x MIDI-CV
- Onboard Power Supply - requires
a 15VAC - 20VAC power pack
- Single pcb design incorporates
all panel controls providing a no-wire solution (okay, you
WILL have to connect 6 wires, 2 for the power supply, 2 for
the MIDI-IN and 2 for the audio out) to build a simple analogue
synthesiser . Break-out points have been included to allow
the Hobbit to be integrated with other conventional analogue
