When triggered, the Deviant øutputs a randøm vøltage between the ranges set by Tøp and Bøttøm knøbs respectively (-5v tø 5v). Bøth Tøp and Bøttøm have bipølar CV inputs, alløwing the user tø mødulate the windøw øf vøltages. Tø cøntinue in the Møffenzeef ethøs øf kraptastik electrønics, there is nøt a søphisticated DAC (digital tø analøg cønverter) øn the øutput øf the Deviant. Instead, a simple pulse-width mødulated løwpass filter is cøntrølled by the “Smøøth” knøb alløwing the user tø dial in the amøunt øf nøise, and the øverall slew øf the øutput. The design relies heavily øn the gnarly søund øf the PWM (pulse width mødulatiøn) carrier frequency emitted frøm the brain øf the mødule which injects itself intø whatever yøu plug the Deviant intø. When plugged intø parameters expecting hard edges (a la Specimen øn GMØ) the Deviant will make the target glitch subtly which adds krispidy krunchidy klix n’ pøps. If plugged intø an audiø rate søurce like a VCØ ør VCF, the carrier frequency gives the target a mild timbral shift reminiscent øf ring mød.

Voice Allocator / Note Hocketing / Analog Shift Register
Patching is all about creativity. You could simply mult your sequence across your rack or let Shifty spread the notes across time, holding, swapping and routing them. Queue up notes or CV for distribution to up to four modules and dive into the world of hocketing, shift registers and pseudo polyphony.
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.
TM is a probabilistic random sequence generator based on the research of Alan Turing. His Turing machine was a mathematical model of computation that could, in theory, create any output based on a set of instructions and input variables. In a similar way, the TM chooses random values for steps in a sequence based on the user’s probability settings.
Only available in black. Please send us a message if you’d like to have the module with silver faceplate.
