Joranalogue MORPH 4 - Dimensional Modulation Array

Post by joranalogue » Sat Aug 29, 2020 9:14 am

Change is constant

Modulation is the core concept of modular synthesis: parameters changing over time, adding movement and musical interest to what would otherwise be merely static sounds. Being able to control the amplitude of signals throughout a patch is therefore essential, and one can never have too many voltage controlled amplifiers (VCAs).

Designed as a fully-featured modulation hub for Eurorack synthesisers, Morph 4 takes the basic concept of the multi-VCA module to the next level.
Four linear amplitude modulators are controlled by a master ‘morph’ parameter. The response of each modulator to this parameter is completely variable, both manually and under voltage control, and can be overridden if desired. Each response is triangular, with the ‘position’ parameter setting the maximum point along the morph axis, while ‘span’ determines the width of the triangle’s base.

In addition to separate signal inputs and outputs, a variety of combined outputs is available as well: A+B, C+D, add (unity gain) and averaging mixes, and instantaneous minimum and maximum. Input normalisation makes it easy to send the same signal to multiple modulators, while output and modulator response LEDs provide essential visual feedback.

The combination of master control, fully flexible modulators and multiple combined outputs creates a module truly embodying the spirit of ‘patch programmable’ modular synthesis. Use Morph 4 as a voltage controlled mixer, dual crossfader, dual panner, interpolating scanner, interpolating distributor, quad VCA, quadraphonic controller, slope modifier, rectifier, complex waveshaper or something in between any of those—the choice is yours.

Brilliant. Can't wait to hear demos of it in use!

This looks incredible! My urge to build an all Joranalogue system is growing all the time.

Getting heavy MI Frames vibes from this.

One thing about that panel I don't get: the inputs are labeled +5, A, B, and C; no section for D? Also that implies the inputs are offset from the knobs in their section. Is that right?

edit: I see now, it's indicating what the normalled input signal is for that section.

does the morph act as a four-way crossfader between the inputs or the modulators? and how does that correlate to the min, max, add, a+b, c+d outs?

Each channel responds to the morph 'master' parameter according to its own position and span parameters. You can indeed set up M4 to 'scan' between up to four signals (in which case you would typically use the add or average mix outputs), but the applications are much broader than that; it all depends on how you set up the channels and which outputs you use.

Check out the presentation from the Dutch Modular Fest here: https://youtu.be/TReaU3769LE?t=6280

Enjoy! More demos are coming very soon.

looks super interesting! Do the level potis also attenuate the control signal coming from the morph or only the CV from the channels' level input?

Yes, if I was starting over it’d be an all Joranalogue system. Great quality modules, reasonably priced and love the brand aesthetics.

Both! Once you use a level CV socket, that channel will function as a standalone VCA, independent from the morphing.

If anyone could convince me that they’ve built a quad VCA with enough functionality to make 20hp look slim, it’s joranalogue. I’ll be watching this with interest!
