Hi all, long time since last post. Sold my G2 (and most other stuff). Got myself the Tinysizer, one of the smallest modulars I know.

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

It has 2 VCOs, 3 LFOs (slow, fast, audio), 2 EGs (normal, fast), 4 VCAs, a great SEM based filter (LP, BP, HP), and audio input stage (preamp, env follower and gate trigger), a digital FX unit (delay, reverb, mixable), wave processor, mixer, ring, S&H, noise (white, pink), built in MIDI->CV, 10 external in/outs, and a ton (300+) of patch points. Check out the block diagram here: http://www.anyware-instruments.de/images/tinyinfo/images/tinysizer_block_big.gif.

Patching this synth is totally different from patching my MOTM with its big fat quarter inch cables. On the Tiny everything is under your eyes, no arm stretching. It a bit like patching a VCS3 matrix with tiny cables. No normalled routes, you have to wire the whole thing yourself. It's lots of fun. On the MOTM everything is more physical.

Here's a sexy pic I made:

Here's a demonstration of the SEM based filter, where the inputs are slowly overdriven:

This is the Tiny used as a filterbox. A cheesy drum sequence is fed into the audio preamp where it is boosted massively, and then into the filter, which is modulated by an EG triggered from the env follower:

And finally a demo of the filter at breaking point, modulated by two slow LFOs (tri and square):

I really like the filter, which can be sweet, but I like it most for its raw power. A single VCO source will start to overdrive the input around 7 or so on the pot. The lowpass sound is nice and fat, and the bottom end stays when turning up the reso.

Hope you like the demos.

Cheers,
Robert

Wow, this is a cool unit. I prefer to build all of my own stuff, but I must give this company kudos for a very well-thought-out device. The form factor and everything about it is unique and cool. It's not easy to come up with something that works as well as the usual standards, but I can see myself using this kind of thing. Might need to break down and finally get glasses to see those little header patch points, though... Rolling Eyes Wink
