Studio Electronics Attenulag
NoiseBug Price : $129
Multi-purpose heavy lifter. The attenuators reduce level, audio or CV, when switch is set to off. With the switch up the audio/signal passes through at full level. The inputs are linked together: patching into channel 1 drives both attenuators; patching into channel 2 breaks the link. Experimentation with key tracking to create alternative tunings, or interaction with audio inputs that don't afford attenuation—does good things. The two lag circuits provide a handy CV mult/hub for oscillator and filter tracking (perfect for CV-ing up our OSCILLATION module with its switchable one in/three out structure for both attenuation and slewing—x2) and are linked together: if you patch into channel 1 only, the outputs of both channels are driven (just like the attenuation circuit); patching into channel 2 breaks the link and they become two separate CV mult/lag circuits—envelopes look out.
ATTENUATE 1, ATTENUATE 2, LAG TIME 1, LAG TIME 2.
OFF: the top two handle attenuation duties; the bottom are wired to lag time.
Ten Patch Points:
ATTENUATE 1: IN, OUT; LAG TIME 1: IN, OUT 1A, OUT 1B, OUT 1C; ATTENUATE 2: IN, OUT; LAG TIME 2: IN, OUT 2A, OUT 2B, OUT 2C
Common Controls and Patch Points:
ATTENUATE – Level reduction.
IN – Attenuation input.
OUT – Attenuation output.
OFF – Bypass is in up position.
LAG TIME – Exponential slewing amount—still affectionately called glide in some quarters.
IN - Lag input.
OFF – Lag bypass.
OUT A – Lag output A.
OUT B – Lag output B.
OUT C – Lag output C.
