NAMM 22: The West Pest Reaches Anaheim - Video

GB Cre8audio's new West Coast Desktop synth      03/06/22

It was announced earlier in the week, but we made a b-line for it when we arrived, we spoke to Richard Nicol about the new companion for the East Beast launched just prior to Superbooth a couple of weeks back - busy schedule!

West Pest key features and other info:

  • West coast style additive monophonic synthesizer
  • Controllable via MIDI, CV, and integrated button keyboard
  • Fully patchable - use West Pest's components as separate modules with external devices or reroute its internal patching. It's like having 8 individual modules (Oscillator, wave contour, dynamics controller, LFO, multi-mod tool, MIDI to CV converter, sequencer, and button keyboard).
  • 32 step sequencer with up to 13 presets
  • Generative sequencing mode
  • Clock-synced arpeggiator
  • Step sequencer can be manipulated & transposed via MIDI and the integrated button keyboard
  • Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizer developed 100% analog oscillator
  • Oscillator waveforms - sine, triangle, and saw - Waveforms can be combined
  • Oscillator includes frequency modulation (FM)
  • Pittsburgh Modular Synthesizer famous wave folder/shaper circuit - folds inputted waves back onto themselves to yield rich harmonic texture
  • Pittsburgh Dynamics Controller - 100% modern circuitry designed to behave like a traditional filter, VCA, and envelope generator all at once.
  • Dual range analog LFO with square and triangle wave outputs
  • LFO Range - High: 2 Hz to 500 Hz Low: 41s to 5 Hz
  • Digital multi-mod tool - modulation control via CV, random generator, and extra LFO and envelope generator
  • Internal clock with tap tempo and can be clocked via an external source.
  • Built-in clock divider
  • Use standalone in its included case or removed to use as a eurorack format module
  • Specifications for when used as a eurorack module
  • Width when used as a module = 40hp
  • Depth when used as a module = 25mm
  • 213mA power draw when running +12V rail
  • 151mA power draw when running -12V
  • Input voltage range of oscillator = 0-10V
  • Included in the box - 1x West Pest, 1x West Pest wall-wart power supply, 5x Amazing Nazca Noodles Patch Cables, 2x 3.5mm to 5 pin MIDI Din pigtails, and love (love's presence likely, but not guaranteed)
