Blue Lantern Dwarf Star Semi-Modular Synthesizer

The Blue Lantern Dwarf Star is a semi-modular synthesizer boasting an all-analog signal path. The synthesizer is comprised of two triangle-core VCOs,a 12 dB analog filter with a diode limiter, two linear envelope generators, two VCAs (with optional stereo output), two LFOs, a VC noise generator, two sample & holds, a mixer, and a stereo delay. 

The Dawrf’s VCO section was inspired by the Bergfotron Advanced VCO and utilizes a discreet transistor array to generate triangle waveforms. Filter-wise, there are separate outputs for low-, band-, high-pass that are also configurable as all-pass and notch. The internal diode works well with the mixer section to provide a sound palette ranging from smooth to chaotic. 

The synth offers separate control over each VCA, with a CV input for a rotor stereo effect. 

Additionally, this section also contains a modular-to-line level converter that’s great for sending the output signal to a DAW or external effects. 

Each of the Dwarf Star’s LFOs is different. The VCLFO boasts a triangle core and both exponential and linear CV inputs. On the other hand, the skew LFO is more similar to that of the MS-20. It features a triangle waveshaper with a dedicated output, as well as a pulse width output. 

The delay section is built around two PT2399 chips, which mimic BBD chips to allow for expressive delay trails. Each of this section’s controls features a dedicated CV input.
