Synthesizers.com has introduced the Q156 Comparator, a new single-wide module for MU modular systems that combines a signal comparator, LFO, VCA and AC Mixer/Coupler.
The module has four sections:
- The Comparator section compares two signals and produces a gate output when the + signal is higher than the – signal. A single signal can also be compared to a fixed voltage set by the knob. Produce random gates, pulsing gates, convert audio into gates, create effects that apply to only a certain range of notes, and so much more.
- The second section is an AC coupler and mixer. Remove DC voltage from a signal, convert gates from the comparator section or from the Q173 Gate Math module into audio, and mix signals.
- The third section is a general purpose utility LFO. Triangle and square wave outputs are available. Patch the triangle wave into the comparator section to create PWM.
- The bottom section is a simple VCA. Patch the LFO into the VCA to create tremolo, or use an envelope to create decaying vibrato – the possibilities are endless.
Pricing and Availability
The Q156 Comparator is available now to pre-order for $170 USD (normally $199).
