Description:

 

The Pixie is a clone of the WASP that keeps the salient features of the WASP but replaces the keyboard circuitry with a MIDI interface to provide a more flexible product, giving the user access to a wide range of MIDI controllers including keyboards, sequencers, laptop/PCs.

 

To help improve the stability of the design, the two 555-based VCOs and associated decoding ciruitry have been replaced with a dual-digital oscillator built on the Mitsubishi M16C.

 

The Pixie expands the original WASP by adding the following extra functions:-

 

Additional waveshapes on both DCO's (Triangle, Sine and Modulated Square)

 

2nd WASP Filter

Low-Pass Filter

Ring Modulator

4-channel pre-FilterMixer

4-channel pre-Output Mixer.

    Digitally generated 24-bit pseudo-random noise.

  • VCF1 & VCF2 – Voltage Controlled Filters
    RESONANCE adjustable from maximally flat to verge of oscillation
    DISTORTION On/Off control of distortion circuit
    MODE Selects filter type: - Low Pass (LP), Band Pass (BP), High Pass (HP)
    and Notched (NOTCH). 

  • VCA-EG - VCA Envelope Generator
    ATTACK Linear attack rate, variable from 3mS to 2 seconds.
    DECAY Exponential decay rate, variable from 3mS to 12 seconds.
    Decay is interrupted by a sustain period while the keyboard is being
    touched.
    SUSTAIN The sustain signal level is adjustable from 0% to 100%
    REPEAT The repeat function causes continuous attack/decay cycles while a key
    (GATE) is ON. [SUSTAIN] must be set to minimum.

  • VCF-EG – VCF1/VCF2 Envelope Generator
    ATTACK Linear attack rate, variable from 3mS to 2 seconds.
    DECAY Exponential decay rate, variable from 3mS to 12 seconds.
    Decay is interrupted by a sustain period while the keyboard is being
    touched.
    SUSTAIN The sustain signal level is adjustable from 0% to 100%
    REPEAT The repeat function causes continuous attack/decay cycles while a key
    (GATE) is ON. [SUSTAIN] must be set to minimum.

  • VCA (Output)
    Input Level Controls Adjusts the mix of signals from VCF1, VCF2, VCF 3 and MIXER 1
    OUT Line Level output - maximum, typically, 3V pk-pk
