Intellijel Tetrapad Multi-Dimensional Performance Touch Controller

The Intellijel Tetrapad is a multi-dimensional, touch-sensitive control surface for Eurorack modular synthesizers.

Each of its four pads use force-sensing resistors to respond to both the vertical position of your finger and its pressure. Four push encoders and a shift function give you even more tactile control over your modular system.

Tetrapad operates in numerous modes, each of which configures the module to perform a specific control task.

Tetrapad be used as:

  • a bank of faders;
  • a voltage storage device;
  • a finger drumming surface;
  • a chord generator;
  • an 8-key keyboard;
  • four independent LFOs; or
  • an 8-switch panel.

The chosen mode determines what type of signal (CV, note, trigger, gate, etc.) is sent from each of Tetrapad’s eight independent outputs.

Here’s a series of video introductions for Tetrapad:

    1. There’s a consistency to the controls across modes that makes it pretty easy to use and remember. For example, holding the red shift button and adjusting encoder 1 controls slew rate across all the modes that take advantage of that feature.
