This module uses a slightly modified implementation of the Karplus-Strong algorithm to produce plucked sounds. It is great for bass sounds, and can generate a wide range of timbres using the FM input and the many controls and CV inputs available.

Included in the Benard Mega Bundle Vol. 2.

Documentation

-Low Pass Noise - When this toggle is engaged, low pass filtering will be added to the noise source before it is fed into the delay line, resulting in a darker timber.

-Noise Type - This switch allows you to select between white noise, pink noise and an external source connected to the Ext In jack. This will result in different timbres. Try connecting a source with a rich spectrum, such as Feedback Noise, or a square wave.

-Trigger Button (T) - This button allows you to trigger the pluck manually.

-Trigger Input - Send a trigger signal to this input to trigger the sound.

-Frequency Knob (Freq) - This knob controls the starting frequency of the pluck.

-Volt per octave input - Use this input to send pitch values with a keyboard or sequencer.

-FM In - This jack allows you to modulate the frequency of the pluck sound with an audio rate signal to produce more complex inharmonic sounds. Keep in mind that this can affect the volt per octave tracking, and it is meant mostly to produce percussive sounds rather that specific pitches.

-Color - This knob controls the timbre of the sound by adjusting the cutoff frequency of the internal filter. It can be modulated with a CV signal using the input to its right.

-Damping - The Damping knob controls the internal feedback, which will determine how long the plucked sound will ring. It can be modulated with a CV signal using the input to its right.

-Decay - The Decay knob affects the envelope of the initial noise burst that is fed into the delay line, and will affect the attack and timbre of the plucked sound. It can be modulated with a CV signal using the input to its right.
