If you connect a power bank or power supply to the micro USB port (as opposed to a host computer) the analog outs will be activated. The mini jack ports are compatible with Eurorack modular synthesizers.
(from right to left when looking at it from behind):
- Blind port (for now. Sorry)
- CV out modulation (0-4 V)
- CV out pitch (0-4 V)
- Power supply (micro-USB port) Connect wall wart or battery pack here.
- Velocity output (Gate / peak-hold / envelope) (0-4 V)
- Excitation (audio signal)
All jacks are 2-pole, tip: signal, sleeve: ground.
The rotary encoder marked Volume controls the pre-amp gain. The center rotary Decay controls the envelope length. Timbre controls a frequency shifter +/- 10.000 Hz. It helps you avoid feedback in front of speakers.
You can change the Control Voltage output signals by entering the programming mode. For the programming mode, touch the up and down buttons simultaneously. All three LEDs will light up. (Tipp: use the thumb for maximum surface and make sure to not touch the touchpad at the same time). While a finger is on the two buttons, you can set:
- Tuning = top row of pads
- Gate / peak-hold / envelope = middle row of pads
- Gesture and modulation = bottom row of pads
The first row mode is indicated by the left LED, the second row mode is indicated by the middle LED and the bottom row mode is indicated by the right LED. The colors in this illustration represent the LED color indicating the mode. Changing the tuning (first row) will affect the pitch CV output. The “1 octave continuous” mode will ignore the hexagon patter and scale the X-axis to one octave. Chromatic tuning assigns a discrete voltage to every pad in a chromatic scale. G-major and B-minor are Kalimba inspired presets. Changing the settings provided by the second row of pads will set the mode of the velocity CV output. Changing the settings provided in the bottom row of pads will affect both: modulation and excitation signal outputs.
