Voltage controlled router/matrix that allows for many uses beyond simple signal routing and mixing.
Four inputs can be routed with individual buttons to four outputs. Those routing settings are stored in an array of matrices that can be sequenced or controlled with CV. Preset routing, feedback loops, chop sequences, trigger blasts (with expander), four-bit-wavetable-synthesis, and dramatic controllable mayhem are all possible.
Inputs accept signals with +/-10V; LEDs indicate positive and negative signals. Outputs work too with +/-10V signals and sum the selected input signals. Step/Reset react at a gate level of 0.8V
A signal at the comparator input will be compared with each output - if the output is higher than the value at the comparator input then the according comparator output will be high (+10V gate)
Switching can happen with frequencies up to 26kHz i.e you can generate audio signals.
Output DAC 1:2 is a digital/analog converter output generated from the status of the first two columns. It is a weighted Digital to Analog conversion. 1-1 is the most significant bit, carrying a weight of 2.5 volts. 2-1 is exactly half that weight (1.25V). 4-2 is the least significant bit (0.020V). The two columns provide an 8 bit voltage output that is always present.
Operation is handled with the buttons that have tow modes. Functions with black text are chosen by pressing, those with red text by pressing and holding. Available are memory functions, selecting routings, matrices and banks, CV functions, random functions, clear, step/reset etc.
An optionally available expander module adds manual and voltage controlled trigger lenght, more retrigger functions, two more DAC outputs and inversion of functions.
