Super Synthesis 2OPFM
The 2OPFM is a digital implementation of one of electronic music's most flexible percussive synthesis voices: simple two-operator frequency modulation. Super Synthesis have designed a streamlined way of coaxing huge sounds out of this small module, which features two oscillators, a carrier and modulator, as well as a built-in amplitude envelope with voltage controlled decay.
Every control on the panel has a corresponding voltage input for external control, and the ergonomic slider design encourages users to expressively interact with the module. This small collection of functions can yield surprisingly varied results however, from short plucks and liquid slaps to bellowing bass and expressive leads—this capable full voice module is full of possibility.

The centerpiece of this system is the PHRSR from Super Synthesis, a two-channel phrase recorder that captures knob movements in sequences up to 16 steps in length. One thing which makes this module unique is that the external clock input doesn’t override the internal clock, but rather it performs a hard sync reset that can be manipulated to create swing, syncopations, and other metric transformations. Also from Super Synthesis, we’re running dual 2OPFM modules for percussive FM sounds, the VCAR for CV controllable attack-release envelopes, and the ISO two-band DJ-style EQ.
We’ve also chosen a few multi-functional modules to give our compact Eurorack system a bit more versatility. The ever-flexible Ornament and Crime, malleable Pique from After Later Audio (based upon Peaks from Mutable Instruments), and the Milky Way multi-effects module by Endorphin.es help this little box pack a punch well above its weight. For sequencing, we’re relying upon the trusty SQ1 from Korg, and a special edition PO-133 Street Fighter Pocket Operator from Teenage Engineering processed by the Ritual Electronics Guillotine adds some additional sonic accompaniment.
