Dave Smith Instruments Mono Evolver Keyboard
This monophonic, performance-oriented synth is the latest addition to the Evolver family. The voice architecture is identical to its siblings, but it sports a 3-octave keyboard, pitch and mod wheels, and enough knobs and switches to put a smile on the face of even the most jaded tweaker.
- Monstrous four oscillator voice architecture: two analog and two digital
- True stereo signal path with separate Curtis analog low-pass filters in each channel
- Dedicated onboard effects (feedback, delay, distortion, high-pass filter, etc.)
- Highly accessible sound control for easy, intuitive operation: 58 knobs and 33 switches
- 16 x 4 step sequencer really brings the Evolver to life with evolving “pseudo-polyphonic” sounds
- Stereo audio input for audio processing of external stereo or mono signals, enabling the synth to act as a unique stereo effects processor
- Everything (sequencer, LFOs, and delay) syncs perfectly to MIDI
- Easy-to-navigate matrix-style interface for quick editing and real-time control of 8 parameters simultaneously
- Multiple Evolvers can be daisy-chained for increased polyphony
- Three-octave, semi-weighted action keyboard with velocity and aftertouch
- Spring-loaded pitch wheel and assignable mod wheel
- 512 fully editable programs (four banks of 128) oscillators: two digitally controlled analog oscillators (DCOs) with selectable sawtooth, triangle, saw/triangle mix, and pulse waves (with pulse-width modulation), and hard sync; two digital wavetable oscillators with Prophet VS waves and wave sequencing capability, FM and ring modulation
- White noise generator
- 2 Low-pass filters: 1 analog Curtis filter per channel, selectable 2- and 4-pole operation (self-resonating in 4-pole mode).
- 3 Envelope Generators: filter, VCA, and assignable (four-stage ADSR).
- 4 LFOs.
- Glide (portamento): separate rates per oscillator.
- Analog VCAs.
- Digital high-pass filter.
- Digital delays: 3 separate, syncable, stereo delay lines.
- Tuned feedback with "Grunge": use feedback as a pitched sound source.
- Distortion and "Output Hack."
- 16 x 4 step sequencer: one sequence per Program.
- Arpeggiator: up, down, up/down, and assignable modes, and latched operation.
