Old-school Modular for Modern Synth Nuts!

The Pittsburgh Modular Foundation 3 gives a whole new generation of synth nuts the joy of discovering real modular analog synthesis. This system gives you a total of 13 individual synthesizer modules all loaded into a road-ready Eurorack chassis. In addition to a pair of very cool multi-waveform oscillators (which include sine, triangle, saw, pulse, and blade shapes) the Foundation 3 comes loaded with dual multifunction envelopes, a Lopass Gate, and a classic multimode filter, all of which you can patch together in fun and exciting ways. And with both CV and MIDI inputs onboard, it's easy to connect your Pittsburgh Modular Foundation 3 to the rest of your rig.

  • Fully modular format lets you build your sounds from the ground up
  • Open-format modular synthesizer delivers Eurorack flexibility
  • An awesome way to expand your rig, no matter what synths you play
Fully modular format lets you build your sounds from the ground up

If you're craving something old-school and refreshingly genuine, then you're going to get a kick out of the Pittsburgh Modular Foundation 3. Rather than considering the Foundation 3 as a single monosynth, think about it as a series of fully independent modules. Unless you patch these modules together, nothing's going to happen. That's a beautiful thing, because it means you can arrange and reorder each section of your synth in any way you like. This opens up the doors for anything from basic subtractive synthesis to extremely complex cross modulation.

Open-format modular synthesizer delivers Eurorack flexibility

Another advantage to the Pittsburgh Modular Foundation 3 synthesizer is the flexibility of the Eurorack format. In the world of modular synthesis, the Eurorack has emerged as something of a standard. That means each module in the Foundation 3 is the same height, has the same maximum depth, and uses the same connector to attach to a node on the power supply. The benefit for you is that you can buy other Eurorack modules and synths (you'll find several right here at Sweetwater) and swap out sections as you like.

An awesome way to expand your rig, no matter what synths you play

If you're grabbing a Pittsburgh Modular Foundation 3 to kick off your analog synth rig, then congratulations, you're going to love it. But if you're building on to the rig you already have, then you've going to find tons of cool uses for this collection of killer analog modules. What's more, with its MIDI to CV Midi2 module, you can easily connect your Foundation 3 to your computer DAW, adding the perfect dose of analog goodness to your digital production.
