Notes: Module A-118-2 is the slim version of module A-118-1 and offers essentially the same features as the A-118-1. But the distances between the controls are smaller and rubberized small-sized knobs are used. In return the front panel has 4 HP only which is half the width of the A-118-1. The module is primarily planned for applications where only limited space is available. The functional difference between A-118-1 and A-118-2 is the additional T&H/S&H unit which is not included in the A-118-1.
The module generates the signals white noise, coloured noise, continuous random voltage and stepped random voltage (derived from the continuous random voltage by means of a S&H/T&H unit).
The noise signal is generated 100% analogue by amplification of the noise of a transistor. White and coloured noise are usually used as audio sources. The random voltages are normally used as control voltages (e.g. for filter frequency or any other voltage controlled parameter).
The A-118-2 gives you the ability to mix the relative amounts of Red (low frequency component) and Blue noise (high frequency component) in the coloured noise output.
For the continuous random voltage the rate of change (Rate) and amplitude (Level) of the random voltage can be adjusted. The continuous random voltage is derived from the coloured noise signal by low pass filtering. Consequently the settings of the controls for the coloured noise (Blue, Red) affect the behaviour of the random voltage! A dual colour LED (red = positive / yellow = negative output voltage) indicates the continuous random voltage.
The continuous random voltage is used as source for the S&H/T&H unit. The type of operation can be set to S&H (sample and hold) or T&H (track and hold). When T&H is chosen the output signal follows the input signal (= continuous random voltage) as long as the Clock input is "high". As soon as the clock signal changes to "low" the last voltage is stored. When S&H is chosen the input signal (= continuous random voltage) is sampled at the rising edge of the Clock signal.
For the Clock signal a "digital" signal (e.g. Clock, Gate, rectangle output of an LFO) is required. It does not work with slowly changing continuous CV signals. Another dual colour LED (red = positive / yellow = negative output voltage) indicates the stepped random voltage.
Notes: Module A-138i is a four channel mixer with an additional mute switch for each input. On top of that it is equipped with two types of single outputs and a dual mix output. All inputs and outputs are DC coupled. Consequently the VCAs can be used to mix both audio and control voltages.
Each input is - apart from the mute switch - equipped with the usual attenuator.
The single outputs offer the attenuated and possibly muted signal of the channel in question. Two version of single outputs are available:
Single Output A: If a plug is inserted into the single output "A" socket the channel in question is removed from the sum signal.
Single Output B: If a plug is inserted into the single output "B" socket the channel in question is not removed from the sum signal. This type of single outputs is available only for the channels 1 and 2.
The output is twice available (two sockets, hard-wired like a multiple).
The distances between the controls and sockets are smaller as for the standard A-100 modules and rubberized small-sized knobs are used. In return the front panel has 6 HP width only. The module is primarily planned for applications where only limited space is available.
Notes: 2HP narrow version of the A-180 multiples module. It is a passive signal splitter suitable for audio or CVs. Two sets of four jacks are interconnected, by placing a solder bridge you can connect all eight jacks.
Notes: A-182-2 is a simple passive module that contains four changeover switches, which are used to connect or disconnect the sockets of the corresponding socket triplet:
- In the upper position of the switch the upper socket of the corresponding socket triplet is connected to the centre socket
- In the lower position of the switch the lower socket of the corresponding socket triplet is connected to the centre socket
- In the centre position of the switch the sockets are not connected
Each unit of the module can be used to switch between two signals or to interrupt/connect a signal. In the last case the third socket of the triplet is not used.
The module is fully passive and both audio or control signals can be switched.
