LIDER-1 - guitar microsynthesizer (Formanta factory)

LIDER - the 1-st Soviet guitar processor, produced in 1982; it has 5 main series sections - Mixer>Phazer>Controlled filter>Modulator>Output and four rubber footswitches for realtime effect control. Includes such parameters as: rocktone, suboctave, phazer freq, filter resonance, speed, modulator release, attack and others. It can be used as the external effect processor for synthesizer since it has powerful analog resonance filter with envelope, retro phazer, overdrive etc. There is a control wheel for effect and scale. Connections: input, main out (line, phone, amplifier).

ROKTON - analog drummachine/module (Formanta factory)

Drum module Rokton is the only "brain" of the electronic percussion kit (complete set incl. trigger pads, stands, cables, pedals). It has 5 independent channels with a complete spectrum of synthesis (sensitivity, filter, pitch, balance tone/noise, decay etc) and two channels for cymbals. There is a built-in autorhythm machine with 16 preset patterns, basic control functions and various styles, which can use any edited or factory sounds. It can also produce preset styles and live triggered sounds simultaneously. The module has standard 1/4 jacks for triggers connection, pedals input and line-outs.
