Q181V1 Whammy Bar Controller

Whammy Bar Controller

The Single-Axis Whammy Bar Controller produces a voltage as you press the bar down or pull it up. The Whammy bar is just like that found on a Fender guitar and perfect for pitch bending and filter changes.

The Q181V1 is a single-space module so it can be mounted anywhere in a system or in a Box cabinet next to your keyboard and other controllers.

The Whammy Bar controller uses our standardized Q181 single-channel controller interface module providing an Auto Gate, Switch Gate and a voltage output preset switch.

Voltage Output Presets
The main output of the Q181V1 Whammy Bar Controller is a voltage that varies as the bar is pressed or pulled. The range of this voltage is controlled by the Output Range Preset switch to select 5 volts, 2 volts or 4/12ths volt. Use the 4/12ths volt position for +/-2 semitones of pitch bend. For modulation, use the 5 volt position then attenuate or invert the signal at the destination module.
