standalone cv controlled complex random module:
this module creates 3 independent 16bit cv outputs based on the same parameters.
the controls allows you to create random steps at specific voltage ranges, for ex. randomizing voltages between +1.5v and +4v...
the interval between outputs can also be randomized, so that means that we can set clock signals to occur for ex. between 200 miliseconds and 2 seconds...
there's also a brownian random, and without going too technical here, let's just say that it kinda "tames" it from going too wild working more like a "drunk" random...
quantized output mode in major c pentatonic scale
brownian driven time randomization
other things to do with a complex random!
1. cv stepping - bit reducing cv
2. cv quantization - quantize an external cv input
3. sample and hold with offset control
4. random gate delay (up to 5 seconds) with fixed, variable or random voltage (with adjustable gate threshold)
there's also 3 jumpers on the back if you choose to attenuate changes between random steps, working as a selectable fixed "glide" mode.
here you set the maximum random voltage.
here you set the minimum random voltage.
if voltage min value is bigger than voltage max then the second will be ignored and frequency min sets a fixed voltage source.
working like a random clock driven sample & hold.
random's clock controls:
clock frequency maximum
here you set the maximum time between each clock
clock frequency minimum
here you set the minimum time between each clock
external clock input
the ext clk switch will switch between internal and external clock, if external clock is chosen then the frequency min cv input will accept trigger input to drive it's random steps.
if frequency min value is bigger than frequency max then the second will be ignored and frequency min sets a fixed clock source.
working as a standard vc random.
for all knobs there's a switch to choose between cv or manual input.
in cv mode the knobs are used to amplify the incoming cv voltage so that a signal that is between 0 and +5v can be amplified to 0 +10v for full analysis range
in manual mode the knobs are used to manually set a value in the full range
1st switch: standard / brownian. random type
2nd switch: free / quantized. output type
3rd switch: standard / brownian. clock timing type
these 3 jumpers allows you to independently set each channel output range to: 0v to +5v, 0v to +10v
fixed glide jumper
these jumpers allows you to set an analog fixed glide output, this will smooth the voltage sent to the outputs.
