The Lifeforms Foundation 4 from Pittsburgh Modular is a standalone, fully modular synthesizer modeled after the vintage modulars of the '70s and features no hardwired signal path or fixed-voice architecture to restrict creativity. The modules in this system are designed simultaneously as a single, monolithic synthesizer to ensure that it sounds and feels like a complete instrument. The system offers both east and west coast synthesis schools to produce a rewarding sonic palate, regardless of the musical destination. The Foundation 4 is housed in the EP-208 road case and includes a black plastic panel that can be easily trimmed as new modules are added, to keep the case looking clean.

The instrument is comprised of 12 modules including a MIDI-to-CV converter, dual oscillator, modulation tools, a 2+2 mixer, a dynamic impulse filter, two binary multi-mode filters, a Distro module, two ADSR envelope generators, a dual VCA, and an output module with headphone and line-level outputs. The case offers an integrated power supply and Eurorack bus system capable of powering additional modules. The Lifeforms Foundation 4 is compatible with all Eurorack-format modules and ships with 24x 1/8" / 3.5mm patch cables.

  • Structure EP-208 - Professional Eurorack Modular Synthesizer Case

    The Structure EP-208 from Pittsburgh Modular is a professional Eurorack modular synthesizer case designed to transport and protect up to 40 Eurorack modules. The case is constructed from hand-stained premium hardwood and features four rails, each with 20 sliding square nuts, and 80x black (4-40-sized 1/4") screws for mounting modules. The detachable lid allows for enough clearance to leave the modular fully patched during transport. The overbuilt power supply delivers three times the amount of power than most other cases and is designed for sensitive analog circuitry, power-hungry digital processors, and ground-sensitive user-interface modules. The Structure EP-208 ships with a standard IEC power cord.
