Toppobrillo 281 subharmonics?

Post by lilnoah95 » Sun Aug 02, 2020 12:23 am

Wondering if i should build the toppobrillo 281dfg. Does it go into audio range? would i be able to use it as a subharmonic generator in the same way as Maths for example? Id appreciate a response from someone who owns one, thanks very much.

It can do subharmonics in ASR mode!
Self-cycling maxes out around 500 Hz. In transient mode can not accept higher frequency triggers, but in sustain mode it can for some reason.
It doesn't sound as good as my DUSG mk2 subharmonics (which has very pleasing glitches between notes) but it definitely works.
