This module provides 8 separate channels to perform boolean logic operations on 2 or 3 signals. Each channel has buttons to select between And, Or, and Xor, and a negation button that will flip the truth value of whatever the result of the operation in front of it is.

There are toggles next to each input to allow you to pass it to the next channel. This makes it easy to produce variations by repeating some signals and changing others in different channels. There are also toggles at the very top that will affect all the pass toggles below, to easily pass signals to all the channels at once.

Notice that when a signal is connected to a lower input, it will take precedence over the signal coming from the previous channel even when the pass switch is engaged. To reflect this, the respective switch will be dimmed, and will go back to its normal color when the lower input is disconnected.

You can use this module to add variation to rhythmic patterns and triggering, and for all kinds of generative tasks. It is also great for making drones by feeding audio signals to its inputs and experimenting with different combinations of buttons. But keep in mind that the signal will have DC offset, as the output is always either 5 or 0. You may therefore want to process the output, for example with the Scale and Offset module, to move it into a full range centered around zero.
