Sounds like a plan. More research ongoing ;)
It would seem that still, after all these years, perception is essentially thought to be a passive process.

Quick question on the Shifty.
Does this replace the functionality of my A-151 v2?

Nope, totally different thing! Thats just a sequential switch. You might be able to use it for that.... but you'd be massively under-utlizing it and paying a hefty price for a simple switch

Sorry, I didn't explain that well.
Yes, I'm aware they're different.

I already have an A-151, and have a shifty on the way for shift register reasons.

But it will also work as a simple sequential switch of sorts... correct?

As @cptnal said a few posts back the Shifty isn’t bi-directional.

It's really fun guys. I actually have been using mine alongside a mutable instruments branches, which can make it super fun to have two random ouputs active at once.

Could shifty be used to send an envelope or LFO to four destinations in sequence? The examples I've seen seem to concentrate solely on using it for melodies

Thanks

Shifty takes a gate input and divides it 4 ways sending it to one of the outputs at a time depending upon how they are set up. If there is a CV input then that value is sampled at the time of the gate input and the corresponding value sent to the same one of four outputs as the gate. You can set the output pattern 1-4, 4-1, 1-4-4-1, and random, and you can set the sampling for track or hold. I just started messing with the track feature and the CV output stays with the CV input changes, so yes, one might be able to pass envelopes through it, albeit only one per destination at a time.

It comes in real handy for hocketing, and with a nice delay set up you can get chord sounds of sorts, that's what I've been using it for the most.

Thanks, so if I understand correctly, as long as there is a gate as long as the envelope (eg rise and fall gates combined from an ad envelope) it could then distribute the full envelope out in sequence?

If you want to send the LFO/envelope to different outs 1 at a time, then yes. You can use it as a 4 way switch and it will send continuous cv. Page 12 in the manual.

Following re: comparison to copier machine in ornaments & crime. I was curious what the range is for Shifty?

Love the ASR in O_C but not the limited 3.3V range. Modulation signals often get truncated if not scaled and offset. Can anyone who has used both comment on this?

I haven’t measured it myself, but according to the manual, the pitch/CV input (and thus outputs) are in the 0-10V range. It’s primarily designed for pitch, so the CV outputs very closely reproduce what is seen at the input, with no perceptible scaling or offset.

Just came here to give another shout out to Shifty.

Great utility module. One of those modules you really don't think you need, until you have one.

I wouldn't let it leave my case now.

I often take gate and pitch from a channel of Marbles and use shifty to fire notes and to 4 different oscillators and 4 different gates to envelopes and vcas.

The only issue with Shifty is you want to use it in every patch while ignoring your brand new 4 channel sequencer (this may be a personal issue).

Is there any way, perhaps with a firmware update, to recognize -10V to +10V - the same as Scales? If not, could we get an option for +/- 5V so that it's compatible with things like the Mother-32?

Unfortunately not, it's a hardware limitation.

Thanks for the response. Have you run across any viable workarounds?
