Description

An instrument designed for deep exploration of both east and west coast synthesis styles while showcasing the full depth of the Lifeforms sound and design philosophies, the Lifeforms Foundation Evo is our flagship modular synthesizer.

The Lifeforms Foundation Evo is a deeply rich and creative laboratory packed with all the tools necessary for late night sonic diversions and inspiring live performances. A set of complex oscillators, pressure sensitive performance controller, multiple arpeggiators, multiple sequencers, voltage controlled analog delay, chaotic random cv and gate generators, and multiple filter types are just the tip of the iceberg.

Four beefy analog oscillators with a full complement of waveforms rich in harmonics and modulation options, three resonant filters, a pair of four stage envelopes, and deep midi options, the Lifeforms Foundation Evo is the perfect choice for maximum east coast style subtractive synthesis. The Lifeforms Foundation Evo can be patched up to create massive four oscillator monophonic or true duophonic dual oscillator synth voices, and can be controlled with the built-in pressure sensitive keyboard, or with any combination of included sequencers and arpeggiators.

The same set of complex oscillators that sing for the east coast open to reveal even more for the west. FM, non-linear waveshaping, and a unique variable response lowpass gate drive the Lifeforms Foundation Evo deep into west synthesis territory. An additional lowpass gate, voltage controlled multi-function generator, chaotic random generators, pressure sensitive controller, voltage controlled analog delay, and a complete set of utility modules firmly plant the Lifeforms Foundation Evo flag on west coast soil.

The Lifeforms Foundation Evo is not simply a collection of eurorack modules pieced together to fill a case. All of the modules in the Lifeforms Foundation Evo were designed simultaneously as a single, monolithic synthesizer to ensure that it sounds and feels like a complete instrument. While the Lifeforms Foundation Evo Synthesizer is designed to function as a standalone instrument, it is also a 100% eurorack compatible modular synthesizer. Housed in our Structure EP-208 road case, the system is made up of 15 individual eurorack format synthesizer modules which can be removed, reorganized, and replaced with Pittsburgh Modular or other eurorack compatible modules.

THE HISTORY OF MANNYS

When you shop at Mannys you don’t just get the gear, you get the knowledge and expertise of 25 years of experience as one of Australia’s most influential independent music retailers.

In the beginning…

After managing the Allan’s city store for 10 years, an ambitious Manny Gauci-Seddon decided to open his own music store. He wanted his shop to uphold the values of true support and after-sales service, and to form genuine ongoing relationships with his customer base. The trends of the industry at that time were pointing to more of a disposable, corporate mentality and so in the early years he set out to make a name for himself as a serious independent alternative.

The first store was a funky shop in Smith Street, Collingwood in 1991. By 1998 Manny had outgrown this store and saw the need to focus more on the upcoming computer based recording revolution. He established an address in Johnson St Fitzroy as the arts were booming on the north side of the city. In the same year the opportunity came to acquire a business on Chapel St – the Revolver Music Gallery. With a two store operation Manny was now making the difference he set out to 7 years earlier. The Mannys brand was known for knowledge and service, with the staff greatly sought after for their experience. Unlike the other major players, the focus was not just on sales but also on the process of making music.

When the opportunity came to consolidate into one superstore, the North Fitzroy address seemed perfect for the move. Manny wanted to expand his customer base to include more of the musicians turning to the internet due to the lacklustre service of his competitors. He took the best from both stores and moved his operation to the hub of music and musicians just north of the city.

In November 2016 Mannys was sold to SoundBay Pty Ltd, the operator of Australia’s largest DJ and production retailer, Store DJ. While the essence of Mannys Music will always exist, our mission for Mannys Music moving forward is to ensure that we continue to build the ultimate experience for our customers online or in store. Our sales staff remain knowledgeable, professional musicians first and sales people second. Mannys Music gives you one hub to purchase all of your gear, and if we don’t have it, we’ll try our hardest to get it for you.

Mannys – The best advice you can give a musician.
