Evolver Desktop - Out of production (N.O.S.)

Dave Smith Instruments

  • $ 59900

Out of production, new old stock (N.O.S.) Evolver Desktop synthesizer.

Evolver is a monophonic (one voice) synthesizer with 4 oscillators, 2 analog & 2 digital. Analog Oscillator waveshapes are Sawtooth, Triangle, Saw-Triangle, and Pulse (with voltage-controlled analog Pulse-Width modulation).

Digital Oscillators select from 96 wavetables from the Prophet-VS (128 x 12 bits), and 32 user-loadable (via MIDI) Wavetables (128 x 16 bits). The Digital Oscillators get trashy as the frequency gets higher, as with the original VS.

  • Hard Sync on the analog oscillators
  • FM and Ring Mod on the digital oscillators
  • Separate Glide per oscillator
  • 2 Separate (left & right) real voltage-controlled analog lowpass filters, 4-pole/2-pole switchable, fully resonant (in 4-pole mode)
  • Analog Voltage Controlled Amplifiers (VCA), again one for each channel.
  • Dual digital 4-pole Highpass filters (one per channel); place before or after analog electronics.
  • Stereo audio inputs; Noise generator
  • Envelope Follower and Peak Detect from External Input to use as modulation sources
  • External Input can be used to gate envelopes and/or step the Sequencer
  • 3 snappy ADSR envelopes
  • Four LFOs (sync with sequencer and MIDI)
  • Dual (left and right channel) tunable feedback loops; modulate frequency and amount
  • Delay with 3 taps; each with separate time and amount modulation. Syncs to sequencer/MIDI. Normal feedback and additional feedback path through analog filters
  • Distortion! Digital, one for each channel, can be placed before or after analog electronics
  • 3 Banks of 128 Programs for 384 total Programs - dump to/from MIDI
  • 16 x 4 Analog-style sequencer - syncs with MIDI
  • Extensive Modulation capabilities, including audio-range modulation. Bipolar (+/-) modulation.
  • Easy to program matrix-style front panel with 8 endless-turn rotary encoders
  • A bunch of MIDI stuff
  • Internal computer & DSP chips can be reprogrammed via MIDI, for easy feature additions
  • Dimensions: 10.75" wide x 6" deep x 1.5" high (27 x 15 x 4 cm)
  • Power: 100 - 240 volts AC, 50-60 Hz
