Pure analog drum synth Synare 3 clone
Oscillator no.1 – tune + on/off/noise switch
Oscillator no.2 – tune + on/off/slow (can be used as LFO) switch
Filter section (24dB/oct VCF) with tune / modulation (by osc2) / sweep / resonance / decay. Filter is self-oscilating at max setting.
Amplifier section with decay and volume knobs.
Input sensitivity knob (useful for external trigger level) and trigger input connector added compare to original Synare 3.
Built by me, based on the schematic from service manual with some changes (and improvements).
Clone tech info:
Battery saver circuit is omitted, powered by wall adaptor only (included), no batteries.
CA3080 OTAs used in orginal are replaced by newer LM13700 with same (or slightly better) performance.
Quality components are used, metalized resistors, polyprop and tantalum capacitors in signal path (elyts in power source of course), smooth potentiometers, rubbered (softened) knobs.
Powder coated metal case, soft rubber drum pad, laminated label. Built like a tank 🙂
Sound is triggered by hitting to top pad or by external drum pad or external (audio) signal.
You can connect individual output from your drum machine to Synare´s Trig in too to “replace” drum machine´s internal sound by Synare´s pure analog sound.
For mounting use an floor tom bracket with 48mm hole pitch.
Connectors jack 1/4″ (6,3mm): Trig IN, OUT (unbalanced).
Powered by DC 12V wall adapter (positive center, included) – protected from wrong polarity. If you will use your own adaptor, it must be 12-15V DC, 2,1mm inner dia, positive center.
Switching adaptor 100-240V, 50/60Hz with European shape of wall outlet included.
You can use it virtually everywhere on the world with simple “travel” adaptor to accomodate to shape of wall outlet only.
Dimensions cca 26cm (10in) dia, 9cm (2,5in) height.
