  • Functional Features
    • IMP noise core audio source, generated by the nonlinear heterodyning of a pair of oscillators. The IMP has eight frequency regions (Domains) of operation, from semi-random sub-audio impulses to above audio range, used as the primary frequency modulation (FM) source for the VCO.  The output is also available to each signal chain as well as an independent output jack.

      Frequency of oscillation is controlled by Coarse and Fine joysticks with multiple Control Voltage (CV) inputs and other controls. The joysticks have breaking input jacks for controlling external signals, and non-breaking output jacks to allow the signal to be used externally as well as control the IMP.
    • Voltage-Controlled Oscillator (VCO) with Square, Ramp, Saw, Triangle, and Sine, waveforms available to each signal chain along with independent output jacks for each waveform. The VCO has two user-selectable ranges, 1 Volt per Octave (1V/Oct) covering ~4Hz to above 20kHz and Low-Frequency Oscillator (LFO) covering ~400Hz down to ~0.06Hz (~16 seconds per cycle).

      The VCO can be modulated by the internal IMP noise core or by external modulation sources, and the modulation amount (depth) of either can be controlled by dial and CV.
    • 2 Audio signal chains consisting of a Voltage-Controlled Filter (VCF) (bypassable) and a Voltage-controlled Amplifier (VCA), each with breaking inputs and outputs (I/O). These I/O allow the VCF and VCA to be used independently or as inserts to the signal chain to allow external effects to be added. The two VCA outputs can also be used to provide stereo imaging and effects.

      The VCF are Voltage-Controlled Bandpass Filters (VCBPF). Filter band width and Gain are varied by the Gain control and the filter’s Center Frequency is varied by the fc control and can also be voltage-controlled.
    • The VCF In/Out bypass switches remove the filters from the signal chain to pass the raw modulated VCO signal to the VCA.
    • The VCAs have ±5V “soft-knee” output limiting protection for external modules. Instead of hard clipping, which squares-off the peaks of the signal, the soft-knee performs a gradual limiting of the signal as it approaches ±5V.
    • Summed output of VCA 1 & VCA 2 available at the All Out jack, via the Volume control.
