Modules didn’t go too much like hardwares, but have some good taste of “vintage” and reminds you of the original synths.

Easy to Find

T-2020 is categorized in detail, with numbers indicating its sound.

  • 1 : Soft, e.g. Sine or Tri based sounds.
  • 2 : Warm, e.g. Fat Saw lead with half closed LP filter.
  • 3 : Hard, e.g. Bright detuned Saw with open filter.
  • 4 : Special, e.g. Strong-pitch-modulated sounds.

So, for example, “BSC-3” means that it’s categorized in Bass-Classic-Hard.

In other words, The deeper you scroll down, the harder sound you encounter. Easy!

The Meaning of AIKO

AIKO /áɪkɔ/ is an abbreviation of “All Interfaces Kawaiku Optimized“.
(*Kawaiku = adverb form of “Kawaii“, which means “lovable” or “cute” in Japanese.)

“Cuteness”, is kinda opposite to “Dinosaur” — AIKO aims at obtaining modern tidiness. So the design of DualVCO is rather inspired by JP-08, not the original JUPITER-8, for example.

AIKO in Japan

AIKO is named after the famous Japanese singer, aiko.
She is one of those who represent the Japanese pop music scene!
