Corsynth has introduced the West Coast Timbre, a new module that brings a taste of ‘West Coast Synthesis‘ to Moog format modular synthesizers.

The West Coast Timbre is a dual wavefolder module, letting you create complex sounds from simple sine or triangle waves. The C113 West Coast Timbre features two different wavefolder circuits, based on two classic West coast modular synths, Buchla and Serge.

And, thanks to the module’s VCA, a full-featured voice can be created with a minimal number of modules, like a VCO, an envelope and the C113.

Here’s what Corsynth has to say about the module:

A wavefolder is a non-linear waveshaping circuit that allows to create rich harmonic waveforms. It’s a distortion circuit that folds back the signal when it reaches a certain level. Wavefolding can be seen as the opposite of filtering. Instead removing harmonic content to the incoming signal, a wavefolder adds harmonics to the original signal creating a more complex waveform. For this reason wavefolders work best with waveforms with low harmonic content like sine waves or triangle waves.

Wavefolders, together with Low-pass gates, are one of the main building blocks of West Coast Synthesis.

Features:

  • Two selectable wavefolder circuits.
  • Manually and CV controlled folding amount
  • Manually and CV controlled symmetry for non symmetrical folding.
  • Two audio inputs, one of them attenuated.
  • Two audio outputs, one of them controlled by a VCA
