The CRAVE lets you conjure up virtually any sound with incredible finesse and ease. With its pure analog signal path, authentic 3340 VCO with a pulse and sawtooth wave outputs, plus extremely flexible VCF and VCA filters, the CRAVE is sure to become your favorite keyboard. Owning the CRAVE is like having your own personal time machine, enabling you to embrace the past – or make your imprint on the future!
True to the Original
Great care has been taken in engineering the CRAVE, including the true to the original analog circuitry, legendary VCO, VCF and VCA designs, all of which combine to make it easy to recreate the classic sound performance. This highly-focused attention to detail is what gives the CRAVE its ultra-flexible sound shaping capability, which covers everything from super-fat bass and lead tones to stunning effects – and all the way out to the otherworldly sounds of your imagination.
The CRAVE lets you recreate all of that magic – or design incredibly fat and original sounds that will make you a legend in your own right!
Authentic 3340 Oscillator
CRAVE’s 3340 Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) provides your choice of pulse or reverse-sawtooth waveforms. When a pulse is selected, the width can be varied using the Shape switch for a narrow, square wave or wide pulse – with a tuning range of ± one full octave. The VCO can be modulated via the envelope or the low-frequency oscillator (LFO). Performance is further enhanced by the Mix control, which balances the levels of the internal VCO and noise generator. This amazing flexibility gives you the tools to be your creative best.
The very heart of CRAVE’s sound is its Classic Moog 24 dB ladder filter, which lets you freely experiment with the Cutoff Frequency, Resonance, and Modulation to dial in the perfect sound. CRAVE’s Filter Mode switch can be set to either Lo- or Hi-pass for selecting the range of your choice.
Onboard Sequencer & Arpeggiator
CRAVE’s sequencer allows you to program up to 32 steps of notes and rests and save them as a pattern. You can record, save and recall up to 64 patterns, all of which can be stored in the 8 banks, each holding up to 8 patterns. Your sequences can be played either in Keyboard mode, where you create and store the pattern, or Step mode, which allows you to interact while composing a pattern. The onboard Arpeggiator features 8 patterns (you can use just by playing a chord, which the arpeggiator then sequences through your selected pattern. Both the sequencer and arpeggiator in the CRAVE are fun, mesmerizing and totally addictive.
Thanks to its dedicated and fully-analog Low-Frequency Oscillator (LFO), CRAVE lets you choose from either triangle or square waveforms, and features an LED that provides visual feedback of the adjustable LFO Modulate Me to the Max! Rate.
In addition to the great sound-sculpting features already mentioned, the CRAVE has still more to offer. The noise generator can also be used as a modulation source to create distortion-like effects, which will send your solo soaring into the stratosphere. Glide (portamento) lets you sweep seamlessly over time from one note to the next, creating smooth-as-silk transitions that few other instruments can emulate. You can even modulate the pulse wave via the LFO, envelope or manually – for sounds ranging from mild to wild!
Controls & Connectivity
We just can’t help ourselves – like you, we're gear-heads, too. For those who want the numbers, CRAVE has 47 controls, all laid out in a highly-intuitive format that puts the joy back into your music creation. And you can expand CRAVE’s tone-sculpting capabilities beyond your wildest dreams by utilizing the 18 x 14 I/O matrix for incredibly vast and flexible patching options!
