8 Channel AD/AR LFO Envelope Generator
RADAR is a high density envelope generator module designed to give you a large number of envelopes with a variety of different modes of operation. The name RADAR stands for (R)epeating, AD, AR.
Mode 1: 8 channels of AD/AR envelopesEnvelopes can be set to AD or AR by switch OR by the level of an applied gate voltage.Setting the envelope mode to R, for repeating, puts them in LFO mode.The input of each channel is normalized downward unless a channel is in LFO mode, then it breaks the normalization.Envelope trigger modeling is selected in sets of 2; Analog or Digital model mode:in analog mode, sending a reset trigger only changes discharging (release or decay) to charging mode (attack). Frequency is also not held constant when changing shape in this mode.in digital mode, sending a reset trigger resets the envelope to the very start of the attack phase. Frequency is held constant when changing shape in this mode.Envelope shape is selectable between logarithm, through linear to exponential. The waveform morphs between these states. And offset CV is included to modulate these settings.Fall shape mode is selected in sets of 2; the fall waveform either matches the rise, or is the opposite of rise.Output 4 can be changed to be the max level of Output 3 and Output 4. We call this OR mode and is designed to generate more complex shapes.Output 8 can be changed to be the max level of Output 6, Output 7 and Output 8. Again, called OR mode and is designed to generate more complex shapes.Each output goes to +10V and has a bi-color LED indicated whether the signal is in rise or fall mode.
Mode 2: 4 AD/AR lanes + 1 Quadrature set OR 2 Quadrature sets:Lanes 1-4 use the output switch on lane 4 to select between either 4 independent AD/AR lanes or you can have them be a second Quadrature set.Quadrature sets generate 0, 90, 180 and 270 degree based on channel 1 or channel 5 depending on settings.Channel 1/5 set the parameters for all the waves being generated.Channel 2/6 can be used to apply a SPEED CV to the quadrature generated waves. Activated with the RADAR switch (so you can shut off when not using). The SHAPE knob and CV then speed up or slow down the repeating waveforms being generated.Channels 3/7 can be used to apply a GRAVITY CV to the quadrature generated waves. The SHAPE knob and CV then cause the 90/180/270 waveforms to be logarithmically attracted or repelled in time to the 0 degree waveform.Channel 4/8 can be used to apply a SHAPE DELTA CV to the quadrature generated waves. The SHAPE knob and CV then allow the shape to morph in either direction from the setting of Channel 1/5 through the steps.
Mode 3: 1 Octature set:Works the same as Quadrature mode except all 8 channels are steps of 45 degrees off from one another.Channels 1-4 control all CV.
