LEM4 Snoopy

Snoopy can be played as a stand-alone instrument with its core Complex Waveform Oscillator, filter and VCA functions with amazing power in a compact design, or integrated into a larger complex system. With its Dual Lowpass Gate consisting of two independent vactrol-based gate/ filters in the classic Buchla format, Dual Function Generator with two independent envelope generators with VC attack and decay, and ability to cycle and perform as an LFO, MIDI, comprehensive CV and USB control to allow interfacing with all formats including EuroRack, and the most desirable and unique timbre in the pages of synthesiser history, Snoopy is Buchla Power for now and the future.

Complex Oscillator: 2 independent oscillators that can be linked for FM/AM modulation effects

Dual Lowpass Gate: 2 independent vactrol-based gate/filters in the classic Buchla format

Dual Function Generator: 2 independent envelope generators with VC attack and decay, with the ability to cycle and perform as a LFO

MIDI-CV interface: 5-pin and USB MIDI input for a single synth voice with 1-1.2V/oct voltage conversion, jack/multiple conversion and scaling buffers for interfacing

More CV buffering, scaling, and 1-1.2V/oct conversion, jack/multiple converters and Pulse-Gate and Gate-Pulse converters interfacing to other systems

Snoopy can be configured in a standard Buchla-style synth voice using the modulation oscillator to modulate the Primary oscillator, or even 2 independent VCO-VCF/VCA voices. Even in this compact package, there are limitless sounds that can be created in real-time.

Integrate with your synth or external audio sources and use Snoopy’s classic Buchla filters and modulation sources for unique effects.
