2hp Passive Touchplate CTRL

Passive touch plate controller

The Beepboop Passive Touch CTRL is a simple but expressive way to route and control signals around your eurorack system using your fingers!

The module is composed of two jacks each of which are routed alternately to the horizontal gold stripes on the panel.

When you touch the panel the moisture in your skin acts as a conductor allowing a signal to pass from one jack to another.

The resistance between the jacks is inversely proportional to pressure and contact surface area.

Patch ideas

Volume control - feed an oscillator into CTRL and out to a mixer without attenuators. When you move your finger up the panel the volume will increase!
Noise source - Touch the panel and route the output to a high gain amplifier such as the Beepboop Kontact module.
Fills - Manually add fill triggers to other trigger patterns
CV Controller - Send a fixed voltage into the top jack and route to a filter.
Use fixed DC voltage on the input and route the output to an envelope follower for even more control!

Due to the nature of the passive modules there will be a slight signal loss and bleed but in most circumstances the effect is not noticeable.

Lovingly designed and built at BeepBoop Electronics workshop here in Bristol, UK. Includes a power ribbon, mounting screws and 1 year guarantee.
