The Intellijel Atlantis was constructed in the spirit of the Roland’s legendary SH-101. Like its inspiration, the Atlantis excels at rich bass sounds and soaring leads. However, unlike the SH-101, the Atlantis ditches the sawtooth core for a triangle core, designed by David Dixon, sourced from the Intellijel Dixie. The decision to add a triangle core means that the Atlantis excels at FM style sounds. The modulator oscillator can be switched from an LFO to a VCO, with both oscillators able to track at an astonishing 8 octaves.
The module features a handy mixer section that allows for the convenient mixing of waveforms. Additionally, users could patch the modulator oscillator into this section to use the Atlantis as a more traditional dual oscillator.
The module’s filter section is essentially a Roland style cascaded 4-pole multimode filter that can be switched between low-pass, band-pass, and high-pass. The accompanying LP switch decreases the amount of resonance in low-pass mode, enabling the creation of deeper, fatter sounds.
Atlantis’s envelope section consists of a traditional ADSR envelope with an optional looping mode and the ability to be activated by an external gate. The output VCA feeds directly into an advanced clipping circuit that can be utilized to achieve a nastier/grimier sound.
