Quad Burst Switch

It's not a bug it's a feature!

At the bare-basics serving bugs is a four channel switch for signals, 
latching or momentary in a on or off position.
as I endeavor to combine control and chaos within one creation the burst function was added which gives it a certain degree of irrational behavior.

The 'Serving bugs Burst' converts a trigger in a trigger repeat, with an adjustable amount of repeats and timespan. Both parameters are CV controllable from slow ticking to well within audiorange. 

There are two states of operation 'momentary' and 'latching':
- latching, is useful when you want to run it as a mute or when burst is triggered it results
in semi-random pleasures, (switching on and off in cycle followed by a latching on or off).
- momentary, is best fitted for rhythmic bursts and amplitude modulation.

There are four channels which all have the following functionality,

overview (top to Bottom):
Pot (black) - duration, given in Time;
Pot (white) - burst, trigger repeats in time;

button (/w led-indicator) - latch mode, on/off;
led indicator, white - burst, show amount;

socket - CV duration, summed /w pot (black);
socket - CV burst repeats, summed /w pot (white);
socket - trigger, burst initiated;
socket - in, signal input;
socket - out, signal output;

The next two features combined makes serving bugs suitable for more complex burst behavior.

end-of-burst trigger
- Each channel gives an 'end-of-burst trigger' to the next channel trigger-input.
(It can run on its own, channel 4 will be connected to channel 1 (when there's no cable plugged)).

- each channel output is summed to the next channel output, making the 4th channel a summed output of all.

Dovemans - Exporing Modular Setup / Barcelona / broken filter / quad burst switch (prototype)

There will be a very limited 1st run of this module, we have a maximum of 40 spots available on the waitinglist.
The waitinglist grands acces to more insight of the process with brief updates, sharing information and possible web-meetings.
Only 20 will eventually be able to obtain a serving bugs module.
