Doepfer’s hefty A-112 module is a clever amalgamation of a voltage controlled 8-bit sampler and a wavetable oscillator with some additional tricks up its sleeve. The module features 8-bit audio resolution, 2 banks of 64kB memory (for a total of 128kB), an input with dedicated attenuator, and the ability to transfer sounds between the module and a computer via MIDI.
Additionally, the module features non-volatile memory, and manual tune control over the sampling rate. In wavetable mode, the module is capable of stepping through a sample in 256 “byte-wide loops”. The speed at which it steps through these samples is governable by the “Wave CV” input. This mode is quite deep and something users can get lost in for days.
The module also has an additional 8-bit effects section featuring effects like delay, reverse delay, pitch shifting, and freeze. The module uses a battery for nonvolatile storage, so users will want to ensure that it is replaced approximately every two years.
This is the vintage edition of the module, complete with an evocative black faceplate.
