Q181TP TouchPad Controller

The TouchPad Controller produces a voltage as you press the pad. It's perfect for controlling amplitude/volume or for filter changes as you play notes on the keyboard, even pitch bending.

The Q181TP is a single-space module so it can be mounted anywhere in a system or in a Box cabinet next to your keyboard and other controllers.

The TouchPad controller uses our standardized Q181 single-channel controller interface module providing an Auto Gate, Switch Gate and a voltage output preset switch.

Voltage Output Presets
The main output of the Q181TP TouchPad Controller is a voltage that varies as the pad is pressed. The harder you press, the higher the voltage. The range of the output voltage is controlled by the Output Range Preset switch to select 5 volts, 2 volts or 4/12ths volt. For modulation, use the 5 volt position then attenuate or invert the signal at the destination module.

Auto Gate
An Auto Gate signal is created as the pad is pressed. The position at which this Gate is produced is set with the Auto Gate control knob. This Gate can be used to start Sequencers, trigger Envelope Generators or to change parameters in the system.

Switch Gate
There are no switches on the TouchPad Controller so activate the Switch Gate signal by pressing the manual button.

LED Colors
A programmable 3-color LED changes color as the pad is pressed. It can also stay a solid color, or change color as the Auto Gate triggers. These settings are made using a jumper array on the circuit board.
