FLAME "MÄANDER" desktop synthesizer & live sequencer
more photo views

The Flame MÄANDER provides an analog 12 channel band pass filter bank, which are controllable by an internal pattern sequencer.

Sound sources can be the internal polyphonic wavetable oscillator, the analog white noise channel and an external audio input source.

There are one polyphonic note track (up to 4 voice chords) and 14 mono tracks for the audio input, the white noise source and for each filter channel.

Each channel include a VCA with individual envelope control. All tracks are accessible via MIDI notes.

Create your own patterns, save them in the internal pattern sequencer as a PATCH and play them on the fly.

With the internal arpeggiator and the keyboard scaler function you can jam very well live.


Expected to be available from May 2019!

SHORT OVERVIEW

- 4 voice OSC wavetable oscillator (4VOX compatible)
- 39 wavetable memories (also for user defined wavetables)
- ADSR amplifier envelope, also usable as a filter envelope
- UNISONO mode for fat chorus-like sounds
- OSC has its own 4 voice polyphonic sequencer track for notes and chords
- analoge white noise channel, VCA controlled by own sequencer track and envelope (AR types)
- external monophon audio input with two separate input jacks (LINE level and Guitar level)
- audio input channel, VCA controlled by own sequencer track and envelope (AR types)
- analog 12 channel filter bank, 11x band pass, 1x high pass, each 24dB with some resonance
- filter bank is controllable via 12 VCA (8 filter typs and/or via 12 sequence tracks)
- filter types: LP, 3x BP, HP, NOTCH, combinations: LP/HP, LP+BP
- each filter channel is VCA controlled by own sequencer track and envelope (AR types)
- there are a mixer pot between filter bank sequencer and osc filter envelope
- modulations via 2 LFOs
- LFO waveforms are faded over softly (morphings)
- LFO sync with MIDI clock
- LFO retrigger and one shot mode
- LFO amount to PITCH, COLOUR (Wavetable), CUTOFF, Filter AMP EG
- LFO1 and LFO2 can be mixed with the amount control pots

SEQUENCER:

- Live note repeat sequencer with 15 tracks and pattern up to 4 bars
- one 4 voice polyphonic sequencer track for notes and chords (for the internal wavetable osc)
- 14 monophonic tracks for: 1x external audio input, 1x internal white noise, 12x filter channels
- SHOT section for live play back (note repeat functions)
- each channel with Laststep, Mute and Hold function
- each channel with individual envelope
- individual random function
- global swing function
- all pot positions automatically storable in Patches
- arpeggiator and scaler functions

MIDI:

- all sequencer tracks send and receive notes (via two different midi channels between osc track and other tracks)
- syncronisation via MIDI START/STOP/CLOCK, external clock is detected automatically
- both MIDI inputs are identical and are merged internally
- MIDI Input 2 also has a THRU socket (there the data arriving via MIDI 2 are forwarded)
- via USB you can connect to a computer directly with a MIDI connection
- Firmware updates can be downloaded via sysexfile via USB-MIDI
