Metallic Percussive Voice

CURRENT: +55mA,-32mA

What does this module do?
This is a sound generator, specifically, a metallic shimmer generator. This module contains all the onboard processing needed to complete a percussive voice. There is a manual XOR shimmer generator, and a static cowbell like generator. You can also turn those two off, and just use the internal white noise (sizzle).

There is an onboard High Pass Filter with two resonant peaks. One is controlled by knob, the other is selected by toggle switch. Labeled Q1 and Q2. I added an Auxilary input so that you can process sound through the high pass filter.

There is also a Sweep Knob which intenally patches the decay to the high pass filter.

A white noise generator is used to blend in with the shimmer generator. Labeled SIZZLE.

There are two triggers. One is for 'Open' sound. The other is for 'close' sound. Both open and close and have there own decay knob to adjust the length of the audio tail.

Instead of adding an 'accent' control. I made both triggers voltage variable. 5V triggering is the normal expected input. So a 3V trigger will sound softer in volume. 10V trigger signals will sound louder.

This module is as simple as it gets, just patch your arturia beat step pro and use the drum track.
