A ghostly joystick module to commune with ancestral patches.
Ouija is an unconventional joystick module. It takes the core concept of a crossfader and dissects it to provide more patching possibilities.
Ouija can be patched into a:
- Manual CV Generator
- CV manipulator and Mixer
- Audio Mixer
- CV or Audio Crossfader
Each of the 4 inputs is provided with it's own attenuverter (-1x to +1x gain), which are then fed into the X and Y axes of the joystick. All four inputs are normalled to +12V, so Ouija can generate CV on its output with no inputs patched.
Channels 1 and 2 are fed to the Y axis, and Channels 3 and 4 to the X axis. These axes are configured as complementary attunators . In the most upward position of the Y axis, all of Channel 2 will be sent to 2's output, while none of Channel 1 will be sent to 1's output. In the middle position, 50% of each input will be sent to its corresponding output.
The MIX output is a 1:1 sum of all 4 outputs. Patching an output will remove it from the MIX output.
To build a simple crossfader, you can patch the outputs of 1 and 2 (or 3 and 4) to a mixer.
To use Ouija as an audio mixer, patch 4 inputs and take the MIX output as your output. Any unused input channels can be set to 0 on the attenuverter to eliminate DC offset.
