|Q118 Instrument Interface|
Click Image for Large View
The Q118 module provides an interface for external input sources such as a guitar, microphone, etc. The incoming signal can be amplified up to 1000 times. An envelope output is created that will track the amplitude of the incoming signal. This envelope can be used to control filters, oscillators, and other modules. A gate signal is created based on a manual threshold control which can be used to trigger envelope generators or sequencers. An LED indicates gate signal output to aid threshold adjustment. A short trigger pulse is also provided. An output jack provides access to the amplified original signal for use by other modules.
The Q118 does not produce Pitch control voltages tracking the input.

Steven Wrote: The instrument interface is so cool - I've tried bass guitar, drum machine, sax and trumpet. All give great and unexpected results. Having the audio, trigger, gate and envelope outputs make it so creative - another must if you want the other stuff to interact.
