Sample and Hold
A real powerhouse module which includes a Sample & Hold generator and Track & Hold generator with restriction feature, Noise source with colour shaped and clipped Noise options, wide range Clock Source and Linear or Exponential Gated Slew, all in only 12 HP of rack space. It can generate random and pseudo random control voltages, staircase waveforms, deliberate aliasing of audio signals, portamento type effects, adjustable audio range noise and much more.
In both Sample & Hold and Track & Hold modes the unique “Restrict” control affects the way the hold output changes with respect to the input voltage and previously held output level. The output can be restricted to move by a reduced amount after each new sample. The output will still have the same range as the input but will need more hold commands to get there.
The S&H can also be used for audio processing; when clocked externally at high audio rates, it creates a downsampling effect. The coarseness of the effect varies with clock speed, or we can get 8 bit Atari type sounds if noise is patched to the SP IN input rather than external audio.
The onboard clock source is always available and can function as a square wave LFO, and it can be converted to a triangle waveform by feeding it through the Slew section, so it then functions as an extra triangle wave LFO too.
