The LushOne Contour kit is the perfect
second module to add to a LushOne system. The LushOne Contour provides
a range of features that allow the LushOne to create richer, more
exciting, more natural and more extreme sounds.
The LushOne Contour kit continues the design principles of the LushOne
base. A single board design is used to keep costs low. All effects in
the LushOne are generated using analogue electronics to capture the
real experience of old-school synthesizers.
The LushOne Contour provides:
- Full Attack/Decay/Sustain/Release (ADSR) envelope generator
- Generates a control voltage that changes according to the ADSR
parameters as a note plays
- Use to control the dynamic of a note creating more natural
- Use to control other circuits such as the filter on the LushOne
base for more wild electronic sounds.
- Voltage Controlled Amplifier (VCA)
- Modify the volume of a sound based on a control voltage.
Provides tremolo and note contour effects.
- The VCA is DC coupled and can also be used as a control voltage
multiplier. By multiplying control voltages together all kinds of
complex electronic sounds can be generated. Try combining two LFO
control voltages in this mode!
- Ring Modulator (RM)
- The ring modulator provides a rich, complex sound that evokes
famous analogue synthesizers of the past. Ring Modulation is most
famously used to provide the voice of the Daleks and the Cybermen in
the television series Doctor Who.
- Utility Low Frequency Oscillator (LFO) with square and triangle
- Ideal as a control voltage input to the VCA or ring modulator
to provide periodic effects
- Can also be used as a control voltage feed to any other LushOne
- Signal breakin/breakout
- Connect the LushOne 2mm patch leads to phono/RCA sockets to
allow easy interconnect to external systems
- Single board design including all controls and connectors (except
power-in) providing straightforward construction and neat presentation.
A laser cut case is available that contains the LushOne base and the
Contour or it can easily be housed in a project box.

The LushOne Contour kit contains a complete set of parts to build a LushOne Contour module including:
- Circuit board (double sided 145mm x 75mm)
- All electronic components
- All external connectors
- Power leads
Available online are:
- Build instructions
- Training materials to get the best from the LushOne Contour
- Source-code and schematics
Note: The LushOne kit now comes with controls that have an integrated
knurled knob. Separate knobs are no longer supplied with the kit.
Note: With the LushOne Contour many patches become possible. The kit does not include extra patch leads as we don't know how many you may use. Please order these separately or obtain locally.
