This is such a gnarly beast. Legendary Leploop Cassa kick drum, 2 VCOs with nasty ring mod and an aggressive VCF for all your acid and experimental filtering needs, PLUS generous CV connectivity. Comes with original power supply and extra wooden case.

I've loved this thing ever since I bought it on the say-so of Chris Carter of Throbbing Gristle and Chris & Cosey, who said (about the v1, less connected version of the synth): "I’ve used a lot of synths over the years but this one is something different… it’s a strange instrument. It’s small, much smaller than it appears in photos: it is part synth, part drum machine, part multi-track sequencer. I’m still figuring it all out but initial impressions are that it’s very unpredictable and slightly unstable… but in a good way. The LepLoop will definitely become part of my CCCL experimental arsenal and will most likely get seconded into the upcoming Throbbing Gristle experimental sets in October/November 2010."

Only ever used (and well cared for) in my home studio. Sadly, it just doesn't fit into my more softsynth-based setup these days, so time to set it free on the un-expecting rest of the world.

Overview:
Significantly improved version of the analog groovebox Leploop now sports a plethora of inputs and outputs making it possible to connect with modular systems. The oscillators received an upgrade and are capable of FM and ringmodulation now but the nasty bass drum, flexible audio signal routing and the arcane digital sequencer remained.
Details:
The Leploop consists of two VCOs; the first with selectable wave form, the second with FM (source: VCO1, EG1 or LFO). Ringmodulation is possible, too. In the mixer section you can route and mix the oscillators. Of all sections the VCOs have the most modulation possibilites, even inverted envelope 1 or external CVs.

Further sound sources are a noise generator and the Cassa, a heavy bass drum with hard distortion, nasty distortion and attack. An external audio input is available, too.

Modulation sources: two attack-decay envelopes, a LFO with three wave forms, a flexible sample & hold generator and the sequencer. These can be routed by switches to almost all sections.
The sequencer has four tracks, memory and adjustable sequence length, depending on the number of tracks.

The filter is a resonant 24dB lowpass with modulation of cutoff and resonance. The input can be noise, the oscillator mix, the cassa or the external signal.
VCA1 is modulated either by the LFO, the 1st envelope or the S&H. noise, VCO1 or VCO2 can be used as audio sources.
VCA2 is modulated by the 2nd envelope only and it's input can be the filtered signal or the first VCO.

The final mix of Cassa, the 1st and 2nd VCA and the filter is set in a separate section.

Connectors: S&H outputs: CV and Gate
sequencer outputs: CV and gate
LFO out, Cassa gate out, clock out
VCO2 and oscillator mix (3.5mm outputs)
