Ammo 100LA front

Ammo 100LA back

Arm your rack with the Ammo 100 "Light Artillery" and take Reason modular synthesis and LFO production to the next level with 128 basic and complex waveforms, in a handy, ultra-compact half-U rack size. With a massive frequency range, Ammo 100LA features an all-audio rate internal oscillator path suitable for both audio and CV output, and the essential controls are available in folded view, saving you valuable screen real estate in your Rack. Whether standalone or in a Combinator, Ammo 100LA is the fastest, smallest and simplest way to get the modulation shape you need..

Ammo 100LA features:

Four audio oscillators

  • Single modular audio and cv oscillator
  • 127 preset waveforms provide easy-to-use, predictable but complex modulation curves, and a random stepped wave
  • LFO range from 0.001 Hz to 30 Hz
  • Audio range from 30 Hz to 8,372 Hz with semitone and cents adjust
  • 31 tempo sync speeds from 32/1 to 1/128T
  • Invertible waveform depth control
  • One-shot mode plays a selected waveform once per gate and holds the final value
  • Pulse Width adjustment (currently LFO range only)
  • Lag controls: only Ammo uses separate lag controls (slew limit) for the up and the down slopes of the waveform for fine control of waveform smoothing
  • Lag controls can be used as low-pass filters
  • Fine-tune the output level with a master channel output adjustment
  • Positive and negative waveform value indicators for each output
  • Four bipolar CV rate outputs, including one invertible output
  • Four unipolar CV rate outputs, including one invertible output
  • Four audio outputs
  • Audio rate FM and AM inputs
  • Adjust the sensitivity of Re-ARM sources to rate modulation - a 7th, one or two octaves, or full range (26 octaves)!
  • Set portamento time with legato - play Ammo like a Theremin!
  • Select "always on" oscillator output, with or without keyboard pitch controlled, or add pitch and gate control with a Charlotte Envelope Generator
  • 360° phase adjustment

Ammo 400R front

Ammo 400R back

Take modulation to the next level with Ammo's 136 basic and complex waveforms, four audio oscillators that can be freely mixed and routed, a massive frequency range, a wealth of manual and automatic waveform mixers and processors, and an all-audio rate oscillator path.

Available in two variants, the 400R and 1200BR.

Ammo 400R features:

Four audio oscillators

  • 135 preset waveforms provide easy-to-use, predictable but complex modulation curves, and a random stepped wave
  • Massive frequency range from 0.001 Hz to 8,372 Hz, plus 31 tempo sync speeds from 32/1 to 1/128T
  • Select free-running (always on), or retriggered keyboard control, including a built-in 6-stage amp envelope
  • 360° phase adjustment
  • Invertible waveform depth control
  • Set portamento time per oscillator with legato - play Ammo like a Theremin!
  • Apply a single "Master" rate (Oscillator A) to control rates all other "Slave" oscillators (B, C and D)
  • Choose from three oscillator synchronisation modes, Hard, Soft Phase or Soft Overlap, to sync slave oscillators to the master oscillator

Voltage Processing Matrix

  • Add or subtract all four oscillators with each other, individually per oscillator output
  • Lag controls: for the first time in Reason use separate lag control (slew limit) for the up and/or down stages of the waveform,
    and choose whether the slew limiting should be linear or logarithmic
  • Fine-tune the output level with a master channel output adjustment
  • Crossfade an oscillator with summed inputs from other oscillators, or select to sum by itself
  • Positive and negative waveform value indicators for each output
  • Four CV rate outputs per channel
  • One audio output per channel

Re-ARM: Remote Analogue Routing Matrix

  • Quickly set up performance controllers for Pitch Wheel, Mod Wheel, Aftertouch and Expression to major Ammo targets
  • Use the Internal Routing Matrix to direct up to four sources to two targets each. Includes all the major targets plus deeper control possibilities
  • Audio rate FM and AM available from the next adjacent oscillator
  • Adjust the sensitivity of Re-ARM sources to rate modulation - a 7th, one or two octaves, or full range!
  • An "extra" set of four CV inputs and outputs are available

Ammo 1200BR has all of the above plus:

Battery: Low Frequency Ordnance Processor

  • Process four channels of external audio, and/or the Ammo oscillators through it's built-in chain of module
  • Sample & Hold, with noise modulation, with a separate square wave oscillator per channel to set the S&H rate
  • Dual pair comparator outputs either the high, low or difference value of each input pair
  • Advanced proprietary electro-switch can modulate the input waveform with itself, extra LFOs, or it's paired oscillator channel. Features four additional CV-rate LFOs with 25 waveforms, which can additionally be used via ReARM either internally, or made available to output via extra CV Outputs
  • Attentuator with Scale (an extra waveform depth control), Shift (+/- voltage with no scaling) and a soft Limiter (0 dB)
  • Envelope mode switcher: set the envelope to use Charlotte's CF mode instead of standard Reset
  • Set ReARM internal CV-rate FM from exponential to linear. (Audio-rate FM is currently available as exponential only)
  • Choose linear or logarithmic modes independently for lag up and lag down controllers
  • Electro-Switch pulse width adjustment allows you to individually set the pulse width for the each of the Electro-Switch LFOs

Re-ARM: Remote Analogue Routing Matrix

  • Further targets are available in the Performance section
  • An extra routable target per source, with an automatable Off/On switch for each row of sources
  • The Internal Routing Matrix features many more selectable sources and targets from the Battery section
