The AY-3-8912 is a programmable sound generator (PSG) designed by General Instrument at the end of the 1970s.
The AY3 gave voice to the Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Intellivision, AppleII Mockingbird sound card, MSX, Vectrex, ZX Spectrum 128K. Many early 1980s Arcade Games used two AYs; the Gyruss arcade board had five!
The AY3 eurorack module is the perfect solution to capture this piece of history in your rack with its slick & sturdy all-metal design and intuitive controls. The module can be set to 3 clocking modes: normal, helium (overclocked) and deep (underclocked), pushing the range of frequencies and sounds to the extreme.
The AY chip brings with it a whole range of strict limitations which were embraced resulting in some highly unique forms of sound and music.
