Your modular system is capable of generating complex, fluid and interesting voltages. Use the µScale to transform these voltages into musical pitches to control your oscillators and other sound sources. Modulate the results to introduce musical changes and patterns. Experience the magic of turning chaos into harmonious tones.
This is a highly versatile and musical device for creating interesting, beautiful and harmonious riffs from just about any CV source.
Can store 12 scales in 12 banks for a total of 144 different user scales.
12 buttons with matching dual color leds for selecting scale notes in real time (and visual feedback of quantizing).
16bit super low INL error TI DAC which translates to +/-0.0005V accuracy for pitch CV.
Processes 0-10v (as 1v/oct) in the IN input.
Accepts 0-10v or ±5v on the SHIFT input (jumper selectable) for a shift range of ±12semitones or ±12 scale degrees.
Two 0-10v outputs (A and B) with 1v/oct scaling.
Output B is a user selectable interval based on the root note on output A. this interval can be chromatic (fixed semitones) or diatonic (interval is within the current scale and the value is based on scale degrees). this interval can be a bipolar value of ±12.
SHIFT has user selectable destinations and modes of where shifting occurs: before scaling, in scale (diatonic) or post scale (key shifting).
Special ‘scale shift” mode allows the SHIFT input to select scales from the current bank (so 12 scales can be selected by CV).
The core of the Envelope Generator is borrowed from famous Russian synth Polivoks , but significantly updated schematics – eurorack standard positive gates, envelope amplitude, inverted envelope output, looping feature (looping on gate on). Bonus feature Gate Delay – the module outputs delayed gate signal after Attack stage. Chain up several (4-5) Envelope Generators, each with delayed gate to create evolving polyphonic synth-like pads!
The SWAMP is a random CV and audio generator inspired by the famous Wiard Wogglebug module; it’s often the heart of self-generating patches and brings controllable randomness to your modular system.
In the SWAMP module we introduced numerous modifications and improvements to extend potentiometer range, added an audio input, which, when connected, replaces the internal Tone oscillator, replaced the expensive dual vactrol, built S&H circuit around the made in Riga S&H IC AS1100CK2, added audio waveform selection switches, CV output configuration jumpers and much more.
Three random audio frequency outputs
External audio input routed to ring modulator
Three random CV outputs
Clock input and output to sync the module to your modular system
CV control over internal clock for even more extreme randomness
The core of the VCO is borrowed from famous Russian synth Polivoks VCO and in exponential converter we use the original matched transistor IC that was used in Polivoks. But there are significant updated schematics to have the most out of your modular setup.
