Each module comes in a pack of three, with a one foot two pin Dupont jumper cable. Longer cables can be built or purchased from common electronics suppliers. This module does not need power, so you can grab a bunch and scatter them throughout your case without worrying about current draw.
It's difficult to say what exactly the knob and CV do, as this parameter is responsible for controlling several different pieces of the code at once. It's a sort of hybrid between the overall pitch and the amount in which the module glitches out.
Bask in the glory of the days of yore... when modems and dial-up tones reigned supreme. That god-awful sound emitted as you tried with all of your might to ping a communication across the globe...that sound...is precisely what we have harnessed and packaged into a percussion voice for the modern day cyber junkie.
A battery-powered digital noise machine in a jar - the Moffenzeef Jarmaggeddon features one knob with voltage control that alters the charactaristics of the sound, which could be decribed as chaotic and glitchy digital noise.
Jarmaggeddon features a 6vpp output signal, just hot enough for the modular but not too hot for line inputs.

All features on MITO can be controlled with bipolar CV, allowing for a wide range of modularity and flexibility. When paired with the Deviant, each knob on the module becomes the anchor point of the groove. As the random voltages from Deviant shift around, creating rhythmic variations by adding and subtracting CV, the position of the knob will dictate how busy or relaxed the groove is. For playability sake, this patching approach is what led to the decision to have the pots as offsets rather than attenuators on MITO. Everything from simple poly-rhythmic structures to nonsensical spewing and sputtering are now at your finger tips with this lovely duo.
Something considered when coding the module was avoiding the use of averaging to determine master clock tempo. In a performance setting when averaging is used, it often translates to the module taking a few pulses to calculate the overall clock speed. With MITO, the divisions are calculated in an "analog" fashion, step by step with each individual clock pulse.
MUSKRAT is a flexible, 8-bit wavetable drum synth. There are 23 onboard wavetables to choose from, either manually or via bipolar CV input. Pitch and phase distortion also include bipolar CV inputs and accept -5v to +5v. The 'Trigger' input is designed without input conditioning and picks up signals of all varieties. In other words, it's an envelope follower circuit. You can plug an external CV or offset into this input and it will operate like a regular VCA. For even more extreme sound mangling, engage the MUSKRAT mode via the switch to feed a random number into the phase accumulator at the internal clock rate. This mode also includes a gate input that acts as an 'accent'.
The Muskrat was inspired by the MSG: a small desktop breakout of the oscillator core from the Muskrat. The MSG was designed as a prototyping platform to play with code on the Attiny85 while going through hardware revisions on the Muskrat. The MSG was born out of a fascination with trying to push a relatively simple piece of technology to its maximum sonic potential. Naturally, playing with the MSG featured experiments with a few different synthesis techniques. The Muskrat firmware is believed to be the coolest culmination of the different experiments. To bring the circuit into Eurorack, it seemed natural to add bipolar CV control over the different parameters. To fully utilize the intricacies of the different parameters it makes sense to make the pots attenuators rather than offsets to allow for dialled in modulation over small ranges. As with all Moffenzeef modules it turned into something that could be utilized for drum synthesis, hence the trigger and decay circuit.
Basically, pick a kraptastique wave, change the pitch, mangle the hell out of it, feed the rodent, BANG! it; you've caught yourself a Muskrat. WARNING: if you feed the rodent, it's brain goes into a fiery frenzy and spits out glitch after glitch of holy bleepbloopness. If you yank on its tail it'll shriek a lil' longer, especially if you're pulling it at long range. Beware, once you let this critter out of the cage it will want to nest so BANG! it on the head!

The five additional outputs at the bottom of the module allow clock sync and distribution to other modules in your system. The START output sends a single pulse when the clock starts to give a reset reference for all other sequencing modules in your system. The four additional outputs are all divisions of the master clock which can be configured with the TOP, BOTTOM, LEFT, RIGHT switches. TOP/BOTTOM switches the divisions from "even" to "odd" metered divisions whereas RIGHT/LEFT switches the divisions from "beats" to "bars." Possible divisions are 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36. The user also has the additional capability of changing these outputs from upbeat to downbeat with the BEAT switch.
