Utility Module

The rug that ties your rack together

This utility module is named after a very large hand-knotted rug because this Ardabil too holds a thread in a flexible structure and weaves something beautiful together. Our Ardabil gives you two signal threads in one integrated design. It’s pattern has ten functional elements in rotational symmetry for you to play with.

You need Utility

Our ARDABIL utility module allows you to get more out of your modular system. You need utility and you need good ones. This is our collection of connections that we think will help you shape and mix your signal through your system. A comfortable structure that you might want to keep in the middle of your system.

Adder inputs – Your thread starts with two CV inputs that add together without changing their scaling.
Attenuverter input & knob – You can plug in any CV and let the knob scale your CV up or down  -1 to +1 before it is added to your thread.
Offset knob – With this knob you can add a fixed -5V to +5V to your woven signal.
Multiple outputs – Threads into three buffered outputs; one has an LED that lights up when there is a positive signal.
Inverted output – The fourth jack is an inverted output with a LED that lights up when there is a positive signal (which is a negative signal in the other three outputs).
VCA inputs and output – The CV input controls the volume of the audio input into the output. The CV input defaults to the signal from a buffered output.
One thread runs
Adder + Attenuverter + Offset into Buffered Outputs
Buffered Output * -1 into Inverted Output
CV (default is Buffered Output) * Audio into VCA Output
