Fully Analog East Coast-style Semi-Modular Synthesizer
What's the first thing you think of when you hear the word "synthesizer"? For a lot of people, the word synthesizer evokes visions of big filter cutoff knobs, envelope generators, and importantly, big fat-sounding voltage-controlled oscillators. These are the hallmarks of East Coast style synthesis.  

East Beast is a fresh take on these old-school concepts with a few beastly twists thrown in here and there. 

And if you are into the whole eurorack thing, you can pop East Beast out of its included enclosure and it transforms right into a 40HP eurorack module. 

East Beast's oscillator, designed in partnership with Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizers, is an original design made with 100% modern components. This keeps it very stable, giving it a super rich and unique sound. Its filter is a multi-mode filter, meaning it can be used as a low pass filter, high pass filter, bandpass filter, or a combination of the three for an even wider sonic palate. To further sculpt the sounds, East Beast includes an envelope generator & LFO. The custom envelope circuit creates a snappy, percussive attack for expressive performance. The dual range LFO opens up a wide range of LFO and audio rate modulation possibilities. 

Get Patched
East Beast has basically 9 different patchable modules (Oscillator, filter, envelope, VCA, LFO, multi-mod tool, sequencer, MIDI to CV converter, and button keyboard) with a whopping 18 Eurorack compatible patch points to plug into itself and your other gear. All for your patching pleasure.

East Beast also has MIDI in and a fancy MIDI thru so you can chain multiple MIDI monstrosities together. You can enjoy plugging a MIDI controller into East Beast and rocking out and/or sequencing like mad.

Additional Performance Features
East Beast includes quite a few additional performance features. Dive in with its built-in tap tempo clock, arpeggiator, and sequencer. There's a lot of opportunities to inject in some randomness too.

• East coast style subtractive monophonic synthesizer
• Controllable via MIDI, CV, and integrated button keyboard
• Fully patchable - use East Beast's components as separate modules with external devices or reroute its internal patching. It's like having 9 individual modules (Oscillator, filter, envelope, VCA, LFO, multi-mod tool, sequencer, MIDI to CV converter, and button keyboard). 
• 32 step sequencer with up to 13 presets
• Generative sequencing mode
• Clock-synced arpeggiator
• Step sequencer can be manipulated & transposed via MIDI and the integrated button keyboard
• Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizer developed 100% analog oscillator 
• Oscillator waveforms - sine, triangle, saw, square, and pitched noise - Waveforms can be combined
• Oscillator includes pulse-width modulation (PWM) and frequency modulation (FM)
• Variable state, multi-mode PGH "No-Dead-Spots" filter (lowpass, bandpass, highpass, modes can be combined)
• Analog envelope generator
• Integrated VCA
• Dual-range analog LFO with triangle wave output
• Digital multi-mod tool - modulation control via CV, random generator, and extra LFO and envelope generator
• Internal clock with tap tempo and can be clocked via an external source.
• Built-in clock divider 
• Can be used standalone in its included case or removed and used as a eurorack format module
• Specifications for when used as a eurorack module
- Width when used as a module = 40hp
- Depth when used as a module = 25mm
- 213mA power draw when running +12V rail
- 151mA power draw when running -12V
• Input voltage range of oscillator = 0-10V
