QUAD ANALOG MID-FAST VC-LFO - FM SOURCE
AMBIANCEURS is 4 independent LFO, with each a Triangle and a “doubtful” Square output. Doubtful Square because the waveform has a subtle crosstalk from the other square LFO channels.
All channels are fully analog and independent.
Its main goal is to modulate your rack from medium to fast movements, the 4 channels can reach a passable audio rate but channels 3 and 4 can independently be turned into VCO thanks to the LFO/OSC switch, don’t expect an accurate volt per octave tracking but a good FM source.
The SQUARE BLEND and TRIANGLE BLEND outputs are a clever mix of the concerned wave from the 4 channels, resulting in a random voltage generator.
You can voltage control all the channels at the same time using the CV MASTER input, normalized to the respective attenuator of each channel.
Its second and secret role is to be a perfect tool for shaping drums with channel 3 and 4 acting as audio sources and channel 1 and 2 as exciters, AND an excellent glitchy drony synth when self patched! No longer a secret !
" NO PARTY WITHOUT ME !"
SPEED LFO 1,2,3 AND 4 :
Adjust the speed of the LFO 1,2,3 or 4. The leds indicate the rate and blink yellow for positive voltage.
CV SPEED 1,2,3 AND 4 :
Attenuator for the IN CV SPEED 1,2,3 or 4 input.
LFO/VCO 3 AND 4 :
Switch between LFO and VCO for the channel 3 and 4, good source for drums
IN CV SPEED 1,2,3 AND 4: CV input for controlling SPEED LFO 1,2,3 or 4. (Don’t expect a good 1v/oct tracking in VCO mode )
CV MASTER : Normalized CV input to voltage control the SPEED LFO 1,2,3 and 4.
SQUARE 1,2,3 AND 4 : Outputs of the proud doubtful square LFO.
SQUARE BLEND : Clever mix of the 4 triangle LFO.
TRIANGLE 1,2,3 AND 4 : Outputs of the triangle LFO.
TRIANGLE BLEND : Clever mix of the 4 triangle LFO.
