Joy Stick (with Aluminium Lever)

odule A-174 modules outputs 2 control voltages generated by a spring-loaded X/Y cross potentiometer (so-called joystick). For each output the voltage offset (zero setting) can be adjusted. Each output is equipped with 2 LEDs for positive/negative display of the output voltages. If the spring is removed for one direction the joystick is no longer spring-loaded for this direction (as the spring is destroyed when removed this cannot be re-established !). We use a high quality joystick made by ALPS in the A-174.

Application: manual X/Y CV control of other A-100 modules, e.g. VCF, VCA, VCO, Phaser, BBD modules, wave shaper/multiplier, frequency shifter, VCLFO, VCADSR, panning, etc.

In combination with the Dual Voltage Controlled Crossfader A-134-2 manually generated crossfades between audio or modulation sources can be realized.

For more detailed information please look at the English user's guide:

The pcb is equipped with two jumpers that can be removed to obtain a voltage plateau around the center position, i.e. the output voltage does not change for a small movement range. The jumpers are labelled JP4 (Y plateau) and JP5 (X plateau). Removing the jumper activates the plateau.
