BENDER

(Dual Cross Modulated, Voltage Controlled LFO)

[No Longer In Production]

A dual voltage controlled low frequency oscillator built around two triangle core, wide range, low frequency waveform generators. A low frequency cousin to the Generator, this multipurpose signal generator can provide the basis of a wide range of complex modulations ideal for amplitude, frequency and timbral modulation.

The Bender module is split into two separate voltage controlled LFOs. Each LFO is controlled by a separate rate knob,  range switch, control voltage input attenuator, and variable waveshape knob.

The two LFOs of the Bender module are wired together internally for frequency cross modulation.  The Variable Waveform output of each LFO is wired to the Rate CV input of the other. This controlled feedback loop creates everything from rhythmic patterns to wild, chaotic modulations. The internal connections can be broken by inserting a patch cable in the Rate CV Input jack.

Module Controls

Rate Knob (RATE) - Used to adjust the frequency of the low frequency oscillator.

Rate Switch - Adjusts the range of the low frequency oscillator.

Variable Waveform Knob (VAR) - The variable waveform knob determines the wave shape of the Variable Waveform output. Full left, the VAR output is a triangle wave. Full right, the VAR output is a square wave. The variable waveform knob also acts as an attenuator for the VCV (variable waveform control voltage input). Full left and the VCV input has no effect. Full right and the VCV input shifts the waveshape from triangle to square.

Variable Control Voltage Input (VCV) - CV Input used to modulate the Variable waveform between a Triangle wave and Square wave.

Rate Control Voltage Knob (RCV) - Linear frequency CV input attenuator.

Rate Control Voltage Input (RCV) - Linear frequency CV input.

Triangle Output (TRI) - Triangle wave output

Variable Waveform Output (VAR) - Variable waveform output.
