Multiple envelope configurations
The four independent, CV-controllable channels of the Quadrax can be configured to undertake a range of functions. An AD (attack, delay) or AHR (attack, hold, release) envelope can be configured onto any of the channels. When configured, these envelopes all feature a continuously variable curve, the shape of which can be varied from logarithmic to linear and exponential. The length of the curve can also be manipulated, ranging from 0.3 ms to 20 seconds. This provides a huge range of modulation possibilities. This is also the case for the cycling envelope, which results in a unipolar LFO. This creates an oscillator where the pitch would only rise from the original note.
Pulse generator mode
The channels can also be configured to operate as a pulse burst generator. The resulting effect being a finite repeated function that ascends or descends in volume. The Quadrax allows for full control over the length of generated rising or falling bursts of pulses. It is also possible to control the number of bursts, the shape and whether they increase or decrease in amplitude.
Beat sync-able LFO mode
LFO mode allows control over both the frequency and waveshape of the generated signal. A morphing feature unique to the Quadrax can create multiple variations of the selected waveshape. This multiplies the input signal, creating a variety of parameter controllable signals. LFO’s can be running freely or synced to a beat using the designated channels trigger input.
Four individually configurable channels
Four independent CV-controllable channels can be configured to perform any of the five envelope configurations. Alternatively, channels can be chained together creating complex multi-stage envelopes. In this configuration, each channel is triggered by the previous channels input end-of-rise or end-of-fall. This creates an effect by enabling multiple function generators simultaneously.
Four step-attenuverted CV inputs can be assigned individually to modulate any combination of the parameters across the Quadrax’s four channels. This is achieved using the built-in CV matrix and attenuversion for each channel assignment.
Keep your current patch even without power
If you’ve spent time creating your perfect patch, the Quadrax remembers its current state. This allows you to remove power from the unit and your channel links, CV assignments and other parameters will have been saved. The optional QX module adds individual outputs for each channels end-of-rise and end-of-fall triggers, opening up a whole world of effects.
