32:1

Only had a short play with this so far but already am finding it a very interesting module and suspect I want to have 2 of them. Send signals from one VCO to the clock and input, split the waveform up into 2 -32 sections (use reset to select how many), send some or all of these sections off to various VCFs, waveshapes, VCAs, etc. Then use a 2nd 32:1 to put all the sections back together....or forget the FX and just put the sections back together in a different order to create a new waveshape.
What is it? a 1:32 or 32:1 mux. It can split one input signal into 32 outputs or switch 32 inputs into 1 output. Use the reset to get lower counts and the direction control to add a dash of complexity to your mux. If nothing is patched into the in/out jack, it works as a 32 stage counter.
Anyway, it looks like this:

Available in July (yes July)


 baDumTISSS is a snare/HH module. It ring-modulates a white noise source with a VCO. The white noise can be mixed with or replaced by an external signal source. The decay time is CV controlled.
bong0 is unlike any drum module I have heard. It has 2 inputs and puts out different sounds depending on which input you use...and whether you feed it CV, gates or triggers. It only has 11 resistors, 7 caps, trimpot, LED and a dual op amp, v.easy build. Yes the LED acts as a nonlinear resistor.

32

This design worked out very nicely. 32 to 1 or 1 to 32 multiplexor, or 32 stage counter, with clock in, reset and up/down controls. These can be used to route audio and/or CV signals.
LEDs count in binary, so just 5 of them...rather than 32.
Stacked PCBs, no wiring! 36 jacks.
This module is inspired by the 32 stage counter/multiplexor developed by Julian Driscoll and Warren Burt, although this version is a completely different & simplified design using 16:1 analogue switching ICs that will pass any voltage within the rails.
