Derive complex rhythmic sequences from basic sparse sources like a gate sequence or random source. Add CV from an envelope, LFO, or controller to modulate the logic types for even more complex results. Possibly enough logical fun to make Spock smile.
This module was primarily designed as an interesting tool to be used with sequencers. You can derive complex rhythmic sequences from basic sparse sources (e.g. from a simple gate sequence and clock), by adding CV control of the logic types via some kind of CV source like a triggered envelope, LFO or sequencer you produce even more complex results.
Plog can also be used in many other creative applications including making interesting timbres and for self-generating patches.
The Plog module comprises two programmable logic sections where you can select between one of six boolean logic types (AND, OR, NOR, XOR, NAND, XNOR) which derive their results from three inputs. There is also a Toggle flipflop and Data flipflop block. All four sections are linked together via specially planned normals.
Dual 3-input logic blocks. Normalling allows for 2-input and 1-input logic modes.
Bi-polar voltage control of the logic types for section A and B with dedicated attenuators.
Toggle flip-flop has a dedicated pushbutton for manual triggering of toggle state. Holding the trigger button enters tap tempo mode.
Toggle section can function as a clock divider, performing half and quarter divisions.
You can save or load the logic section as a preset for easy recall of patches.
The module can be run at audio rates in order to generate interesting digital sounds.
Traditional subtractive synthesis starts with a complex waveform and then filters it down. A wavefolder allows for the opposite: start with simple waveforms and then fold it over itself to create extremely rich and complex timbres. Animate the fold and symmetry controls with CV to add even more life and movement to the sounds.
The Erbe-Verb is more than a collection of reverb algorithms or presets, it is a unique, modeless, continuously variable reverb algorithm with complete voltage control. Typical reverb types such as plate, room, hall, shimmer and others may be programmed by adjusting the knobs. The continuously variable algorithm allows for hybrid and unreal spaces to be found. Traveling between spaces is possible by modulating the algorithm or manually sweeping parameters. More than an end-of-chain effects unit, it’s a whole new building block for modular synthesis. Like the Echophon, it’s coded by Tom Erbe of soundhack.
