Studio: Coron Clone

[Coron Clone]

The Coron is a small, single voice drum synthesiser that's capable of a wide range of analogue drum sounds. Original ones fetch a considerable sum of money these days, so I bought this really well made clone instead. It features two channels, the first is an audio frequency oscillator, and the second is noise generator. The oscillator channel has a tune control and a sweep control that increases or decreases the pitch as the sound plays. There is a low frequency oscillator with a rate control and a mode control that alters the amount of modulation of the audio frequency oscillator. Finally, there's a simple envelope and amplifier with decay and level controls. There's CV input sockets to control the oscillator pitch, and a trigger input socket with a gain control that I connect to a MIDI to trigger module so I can sequence the machine from a drum machine or sequencer.
