4 Variable Waveshape Operators for Linear FM Synthesis
Implementing frequency modulation synthesis completely from scratch in firmware, the Quad Operator is able to provide a modern take on frequency modulation synthesis.
One knob per function design for true ease of use
Any FM algorithm is possible via modulation matrix
The Algo expander provides algorithm save/recall and crossfading capabilities
Independent output per operator
Virtual VCA per operator for both animating modulation and output volume control
Includes a dedicated “AR FM” input with its own modulation sends, designed to bring an audio rate signal in from your rack for use as a modulator. Try processing a phase locked operator, and feeding it back in!
Each operator can also be unlocked then tuned and patched independently, making the module a great general purpose oscillator bank
Convincing digital emulation of classic analog waveshapes—sine, triangle, square, and saw
An LFO mode, enabled the generation of phase locked, complex modulation signals
EXPANDER FOR QUAD OPERATOR’S ALGORITHM FUNCTIONALITY
Where the unexpanded Quad Operator maintains a one knob per function design discipline, we nevertheless recognized the value of some more advanced algorithm-oriented functionality.
The Algo expander for the Quad Operator provides:
Saving and loading of modulation send knob positions for FM algorithm design reuse
Crossfade between pairs of saved algorithms, or a saved algorithm and the live knob positions
Standalone: +12V: 140mA, -12V: 13mA
With Algo: +12V: 145mA, -12V: 13mA
Quad Operator: 30HP
Algo expander: 4HP
