Att: 4hp quad passive attenuator. Has jumpers to select log or lin response.
uScale: 4hp quantizer and intelligent interval module
-buttons to select scale notes
-duo leds show scale pattern (red) and realtime quantized note (green)
-Special multifunction "shift" input operates in range +/-12 semitones. Jumper on pcb to select 0-10V or +/-5V interface.
-With shift you can alter the output in multiple ways including: transposing before force to scale, transposing in scale (e.g. a value of "4" results in the note transposed 4 scale degrees instead of 4 semitones) and post scaling which allows very interesting key changes. The shift destination can be routed to the main noteA, interval note B, both or the scale root (again creates really interesting scale changes). Output B (interval note) is derived from the root note. It can be selected as +/-12 semitone value.
-interval note can also remain chromatic (not forced to scale) so that you can have fixed intervals. Nice for FM perhaps.
-8 banks x 8 scales of store/recall
-manual scale root note shifting (essentially shift scale left/right)
-This thing makes anything sound musical!!!
-this is the first of a series of collaborations with analog guru David G. Dixon and based primarily on the SSM2164 quad VCA chip
In his words:
It’s a ring modulator with a twist. It’s got a “Q Balance” knob which puts it into four-quadrant multiplication in the middle, and – or + two-quadrant multiplication at the left and right. The X and Y inputs also have rectifiers which pass the –, –/+, or + portions of each signal with the flip of a switch. This, along with the adjustable multiplication, gives a whole range of sonic possibilities not generally available from ring modulators. It also makes a wicked waveshaper as well as a very interesting CV mangler. See the attached document for some random scopeshots (will post soon). AC/DC coupling switches on each input add to the possibilities. Plus, since it’s based on opposing linearized 2164 VCA pairs on the same chip, it is very accurate and has almost no CV bleedthrough (unlike most ringmods).
Special thanks to Haven, James Cigler, and Shawn for great input on these modules.
These three are in production and price/ship date will be announced soon. uScale takes more work since it requires programming and calibration but I am working 24/7 to get some units shipped before x-mas (even if it is a small batch).
