    Analog drum, weird wizzzzz / / designed for the live / /

    Chamber of Sounds Jupiter IIIPublished on 08/09/12 at 11:34
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Synth without a keyboard but can be controlled in 3 ways:
    1 / tapping the box with a piezo mic attached to the inside
    2 / as a theremin, playing with the light sensor attached to the housing
    3 / in the triggant via an input jack 1/4 "

    This is sytnhé the same family as the Coron DS-7 Drum Synce, a percussive synth analog osc 1.
    The amplitude of the pitch is a little less than 4 octaves (adjustable with the big pot on the bottom right)
    Controllers are:
    setting the LFO speed (wired on the pitch of OSC), adjusting the amplitude of the LFO, decay (its length), sweep (basically setting the cutoff) and volume.

    2 switches:
    - On / off

    2 switches:
    - On / off
    - Enable / disable the Light Sensor (game mode with piezo)

    2 jacks 1/4 ":
    - A trigger trig for the oscillator
    - A mono output

    Power: 9V battery or adapter (not supplied)

    no utility, no polyphony, one sinusoid its simple and flexible as desired.

    UTILIZATION

    Configuration could not be more clear! A Osc, LFO, an adjustment of the volume and decay. Everything is controlled directly, not memory.
    The inventiveness of this product lies in being able to trigger the sound by hitting on the same machine while modulating the sound with the PHOTOSENSOR.
    Add to that a Reverb / Delay and you can create all the sound effects of Star Trek.

    SOUNDS

    No type of music correspond to the Protocol (although it is ideal for disco, I think, in high toms ...). The piezo sensor responds very well to the expressive type.
    Note that removing the machine (what to do to accommodate the 9V battery), it is possible to adjust the sensitivity of the piezo.
    Pushing the LFO to the maximum, you can create additional harmonics, the amplitude of the LFO is a starting flights of fancy that I have not heard much about synths (3 octaves of range! )

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used a Coron DS-7 before it, it valentau level of sound reproduction.
    Jupiter is the lightest, I find the position of the knobs is very well designed for a live performance. It is easily inhabitable on a synth to be triggered on the fly during the game!
    It is findable on the site directly, or in some U.S. stores (Chicago, Montreal). The price is around $ 300 but the quality is there.
    The version shown in photo above is the first version of the Jupiter III (made in 37 ex.), It is now silkscreened orange, but it is the same. There is also a small box for Schedule sync with external source.
