CVSHIFTER

View Product Page

The CVSHIFTER module controls 4 outputs from one CV input; what the outputs do depend on the mode the user chooses.

  • Classic - Each trigger in shifts the CV out by one position, the new CV goes to output CV 1. The CV that was at output 1 goes to output 2 and so on. This means you need to have 4 triggers before there is a CV at output 4. This mode will not produce triggers at the TRIG 1-4 outputs. This mode means you can generate chords within your AE modular.
  • Cycle - Each trigger sends the CV to the next output channel with a gate signal at the relevant output, after output 4 it cycles back to output 1. This can be excellent for percussion tracks.
  • Random - The CVs are sent in random order to one of the four outputs, with a gate at the relevant output.

Power Consumption: 12 mA

Inputs

  • CV - the input CV which is sampled with each trigger pulse
  • TRIG - the trigger input which samples the input CV and sends the output to one of the outputs
  • TRIG SLOW - ?
  • RESET - reset the sequence

Outputs

  • CV1 - The first output of the sequence
  • CV2 - The second output of the sequence
  • CV3 - The third output of the sequence
  • CV4 - The fourth output of the sequence
  • TRIG1 - When in CYCLE mode this sends a trigger on the first step of the sequence, in RANDOM mode, when output 1 is selected.
  • TRIG2 - When in CYCLE mode this sends a trigger on the second step of the sequence, in RANDOM mode, when output 2 is selected.
  • TRIG3 - When in CYCLE mode this sends a trigger on the third step of the sequence, in RANDOM mode, when output 3 is selected.
  • TRIG4 - When in CYCLE mode this sends a trigger on the fourth step of the sequence, in RANDOM mode, when output 4 is selected.

Controls

  • MODE - cycles through the 3 modes explained above.
  • RESET - performs a manual reset of the sequence, so the next CV will be on output 1 only.
  • MAN TRIG - manual trigger for a CV sample/next step in the sequence.

Display

The 4 leds light when the relevent output has a CV present.

Patch Suggestions

Compared to the "classic" circuits, this module is digital based and therefore doesn't suffer from drift as some analogue ASRs and S&Hs do. The result is, that you can control the pitch of up to four oscillators which can be a move into polyphony. The first step is to do a paraphonic synth, which means the four oscillators go through one filter and VCA. If you have a keyboard connected to your AE, the Key CV (BUS CV if using a midi keyboard) and trigger (BUS GATE if using midi) need to go to the CVShifter inputs; experiment from there!

This module can be excellent for producing CVs that are used to modulate a sequence; you can run the triggers so that they are triggered every step of the sequence (e.g. using the out on the SEQ8), a specific step using the numbered outs or, where it can get really interesting, is using one of the 4 sequences in the TRIQ164 or Euclid Grid....
