dual unipolar control voltage generator

Cells is a dual unipolar control voltage generator. Each of the 16 touch sensitive pads can be “fed” two 12bit values (semi-tone quantized or free scale), ranging from 0V to 5V

Although intended to be used as a duo-phonic instrument/sequencer, Cells can also be used to modulate filters, amps, anything with a cv input!

Operation Overview:
Feed It:

-Tap a pad to select it

-Hold a tune button to engage the “feeding process” (left button for channel 1, right for channel 2).

-Adjust a knob to the desired pitch (left knob for channel 1, right for channel 2).

So long as a tune button is held, the output is automatically changed as you move the knob

-Release the button, pitch information is stored to Eeprom

You can toggle between free scaling and semi-tone increment modes by pressing both tune buttons simultaneously.
Play it:

Press a pad to trigger both gate and cv outputs

Hold 2 or more pads and Cells will arpeggiate, the rate can now be changed with the left knob. The right knob changes the octave range.
Sequence it:

Sequence the cells using the 2 trigger inputs. The left input shifts up a row and the right input shifts right by one column

The gate outputs mirror the trigger inputs.

Cells requires +5V DC power to operate, as well as +/- 12V . On-board 12V to 5V conversion is provided if 5V isn’t available in your system. This is configured via a jumper on the rear of the module
