The Blue Lantern Asteroid Mini Synth is a completely self-contained voice for use in Eurorack modular synthesizer systems. The module is comprised of a VCO, VCA, Envelope Generator, Noise Generator, Subharmonic Generator, Strike Circuit, and Analog Delay.
The VCO features a triangle core, discrete transistor design, and individual Sine, Triangle, Square, Subharmonic, and Pulse waveform outputs. There are also two 1V/Oct inputs, CV inputs, a sync input, and a linear FM input. Additionally, there are is also a bi-polar decay source and pop CV input that add some extra force to the sound.
The Asteroid Mini’s envelope generator easily alternates between various levels of snappiness, meaning it is optimal for drums and percussive-style synthesizers. Users can also ping the strike input with a trigger for the generation of larger drum sounds.
An input is also included, which is useful for using the VCO separately, should the user decide to do so. There’s also an extra in/out jack, blowing for easy inclusion of a second audio signal, which works especially well for layering drum sounds. The VCA can also be patched directly, bypassing the summing mixer entirely, and offering a great avenue for send/return patching.
Finally, the Asteroid Mini’s delay section features three modulation inputs for control over Repeat, Time, and Level parameters for an array of different delay options.
