This module allows you to make macro changes to a group of signal. It can send common CV values to 8 different outputs. The big knob sets a global CV value (an offset), which is then scaled independently by the individual channel attenuverters.

There is a CV input to modulate the value of the big knob, which is not scaled and is independent of the Range switch. The Range switch allows you to set the range of the big knob to + and - 2.5, 5, or 10, and this will be reflected on the labels around the knob. When the Cap CV toggle is engaged, the module will output values only within the specified range, and values above or below will be clipped.

The R button lets you randomize the values of all the channel knobs, which you can also do by sending a trigger to the input below it. This allows you to use the module to send a group of random values than can then be offset together.

It is great for grouping related control signals and modifying them together with a single knob or CV signal. It can be particularly useful for experimenting with FM, allowing you to modify the range of the modulation signals for the several oscillators at once to discover interesting timbers.

This module is part of the Benard Mega Bundle Vol. 3.
