Pittsburgh Modular - Taiga

TAIGA is a complete, modern, modular instrument that allows you to push the boundaries of a traditional analog synthesizer. Its sound is based on three unique Pittsburgh innovations: a trio of powerful analog oscillators, the unmistakably smooth sound of the Pittsburgh Filter and the warmth of the Dynamics Controller. This not only allows you to create sounds that you would traditionally expect from an analog monosynth, but also completely new sound textures.

The waveforms generated by the three oscillators go beyond the basic geometric shapes and sounds associated with analog synthesis. They pass through up to three proprietary, cascading waveshapers to precisely manipulate their symmetry and harmonic content. In addition, each oscillator has a robust six-stage waveshaper that adds even more complexity and depth to the diverse sound palette.

Its Dynamic Controller gives TAIGA a unique organic depth and presence. By managing amplitude and harmonic content simultaneously, the Pittsburgh Dynamics Controller goes beyond one-dimensional VCAs found in other synthesizers. It does this by utilizing new advancements in traditional low-pass gates to add definition and dimension to the sound.

In low-pass gate mode, sounds lose overtones and become warmer as they become quieter. This mimics how sound waves react to their environment. This combination makes Taiga sound more natural and complex compared to other instruments.

TAIGA has an internally defined signal path. Patch cables are therefore not necessary to start exploring. As soon as a MIDI keyboard and the audio output are connected, TAIGA is immediately ready to play. Should ideas outgrow the predefined signal path, a 60-point patch panel opens up a fully modular instrument with access to an even greater number of functions and analog and digital synthesis tools that support and extend the core features. Analog tools include a flexible dual mixer, two crisp four-stage envelope generators, noise and sample & hold. The digital tools include external MIDI, arpeggiator, clock-synchronized modulation tools and a collection of random generators.

Rounding out the overall sound is Echos: a beautiful, dark analog delay. Echos uses bucket brigade delay chips to create a classic, voltage-controlled analog delay effect.
