Universal CV Processor

The DROID is a very flexible generic CV processor. It has 8 CV inputs and 8 CV outputs, all ranging from -10V to +10V. The DROID can do almost any CV task you can imagine, such as sequencing, melody generation, slew limiting, quantizing, switching, mixing, working on clocks and triggers, creating envelopes and LFO or other fancy voltages, or any combination of these at the same time. While doing this, is very precise both in voltage and in timing.

You tell your DROID what to do by means of a simple text file called “DROID patch”. That file is be named droid.ini and is located on a micro SD card. No special software is required for writing that file. A simple text editor running on Windows, Linux, Mac or any other device will suffice.

The building blocks of a DROID patch are called circuits. Every type of circuit performs some basic task. Just like a Eurorack module each ciruit has inputs and outputs. You can wire these either directly to the eight inputs and out or even connect them internally. Every parameter can be CV controlled. You can attach up to 16 P2B8 controllers, each having two potentiometers and 8 push buttons. These you can assign to any parameter or function you like.

Here are a few examples of what your DROID can be for you. As long as you do not run out of inputs and outputs you can implement as many of these functions at the same time in one DROID. You also can connect them together internally.

  • Envelope generator
  • Melody sequencer
  • Trigger sequencer
  • Random / Pseudo random melody or trigger generator
  • Precision adder
  • Slew limiter
  • Clock divider and multiplier
  • Logic gate
  • CV looper
  • Sample and hold
  • Euclidean rhythms generator
  • Quantizer
  • Addressable and clockable CV switch
  • CV mixing and routing matrix
  • LFO
  • Bernoulli gate
  • Mathematical operator
  • ... and many more to come in future software versions

You can use these circuits either directly - just like normal Eurorack modules - or combine them internally in order to implement more complex functions. Then you can assign pots and buttons of your "P2B8"-controllers for switching, tuning and live performing with these. Basically you can transform your Eurorack modular system into your own custom instrument. Or you simply use the DROID as a replacement for several utility modules, because it is very space efficient.

Expanders:

  • The P2B8 is a controller with two pots and eight buttons - for free assigment. You can attach up to 16 of these to one Master.
  • The G8 is an expander with 8 additional gate inputs / outputs.
