Superbooth 2017 New Doepfer Module Announcements

From April 20-22, 2017 the second Superbooth takes place in Berlin.

Doepfer announced the new modules that will be on display there... with some very exciting new toys.
Some of the new products were already presented as prototypes at NAMM and are now available (e.g. the voltage controller performance mixer series A-135-4). But they will also show some new gear in Berlin (e.g. the quad VCO A-111-4, the micro keyboard A-173-1/2, the miniature stereo mixer A-138s and the low cost versions of the monster cases).

A-111-4 Quad VCO
A-111-4 contains four precision VCOs with 10 octaves range and has individual controls, inputs and outputs for each VCO available as well as common controls.
After all the A-111-4 is very similar to four A-111-3 with built in output mixers for the three waveforms and a common control unit for all VCOs. Controls, inputs and outputs (individual for each and common for all VCOs): 1V/Octave CV input Octave switch (+1/0/-1 octave) Tune control (range internally adjustable by jumpers: 2 semitones / 1 octave / 4 octaves) Modulation CV input (common unit is fixed to FM) Modulation destination FM or PWM (only for the individual VCOs) Modulation intensity Triangle output Sawtooth output Rectangle output Sync input (only for the individual VCOs, internally selectable hard or soft sync, CEM3340 hard sync type)
