This module allows you to delay trigger events in a poly signal independently for each voice by a random amount of up to 2 seconds, selected between the bounds set by the min and max knobs. Each time a trigger is received via the mono or poly inputs, a new random delay value will be selected for the triggered poly voice or voices, or for all the poly voices if the mono input is used. You can make the random values repeat (over successive triggers, but still independent for each voice) by engaging the Hold toggle, manually or through the CV input, which will alternate between on and off every time it receives a trigger.

The input LEDs will light when triggers are received for the specific voices (or for all at once), and the output LEDs will light when the triggers are output for each of those voices respectively, to give visual feedback of the triggering of the poly voices.

If the max knob is set to a lower value than the min knob, no output will be produced.

You can use this module to produce slapback echoes, to create bursts of notes for arpeggios in a poly voice, or to animate beats and create fills for drums when the triggers of the individual voices are sent to drum modules.

Even though the module is designed to deal with triggers, it is also possible to misuse it by connecting audio signals to the inputs to produce interesting glitchy noise textures.

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