Bathysphere Modular

Bathysphere Modular

This is the modular synth in the Bathysphere studio which I’ve just finished re-housing into 4 smaller units, so as to make it a bit more portable. We bought this baby 18 months back on ebay and It came in one big heavy cabinet, 66 Doepfer and Analogue Solutions modules, including 9 oscillators, 4 sequencers, 6 analogue drums and numerous filters, envelopes, LFO’s and utility modules. It’s a fantastic synth and it’s been used on pretty much everything we’ve done in the studio since. It plays a big part in my circuit bent setup, I designed the Chaos Sequencer to send out triggers and receive control voltages. and all my Speaks have CV ins. Today is the first time for some months that I’ve had the whole thing running together as I’d previously taken out a few modules to build a small system for an ASMO vs kREEPA set at Summer Sundae 2007. I spent a couple of hours this afternoon testing all the modules by patching it up to play Giorgio Moroder‘s classic analogue workout ‘I Feel Love’.

    This night I did a research on the song “I feel love”. I’ve just saw your video on youtube and was fascinated. In parallel at the TV was the movie “Water” about India in 1938 and an indian woman voice was singing with your sound of the clip likewise the spheric original.
    Just want to let you know, this was really a nice impession – Thanks.

      It’s a home made module, basically a rotary switch to switch between ins/outs
