IME'S "ARGOS BLEAK" can use its second input as a transpose in "sum" mode. Ships at the end of August.

forgive the noobiness, but can someone explain the functional difference between something like the wmd invert/offset and a precision adder? (aside from the option for incremental additions of voltage in the doeper)

i looked around to no avail.

In the simplest terms possible: an offset is an adder. But then you can have simple adders or precision adders, the latter being very useful in circumstances where precise voltages are important, such as when adding a voltage to another voltage which will be used for Pitch. You don't want to miss that note because your adder isn't precise!

Does that make sense?

I think so. Is the available control just more granular, or is there some tracking/compensation occurring as well?

It's a matter of circuit precision (what % of deviation from the required CV value there is). It boils down to precision adders being more precise devices in comparison to your standard offset - and thus the UI is aimed at applications which have to do with Pitch. Hope that helps!

so .. I soldered the opamps on all modules today and completed 6 of them. I have to test them one by one but I'm positive I'll get them out by the end of the week.

So all the ppl interested in one should get back to me for the transaction details.
I've sent some emails out but I'm not sure if I remembered everyone.

Sequential switch to flick between different transposing offsets? Been using channels 2&3 of Maths with my new A-166 to do this. Use a lower clock division to trigger the switch and your sequence will happily transpose all night. :party:

Currently held up waiting for the panels, I'm still busy writing the manual, and I have a store opening and another module to start selling before this one will work its way to the front of the queue... but it is in the queue, and I've got a batch of them half-built on my workbench right now.
So yeah, it's shipping now. Precision addition, subtraction, and octave shifts manually and under CV control.

I also noticed this the other night, which could make it on your list.

not sure if your trying for more than just octave transposition but I did see the beast's chalkboard was mentioned already so ....

I've started saving - looks like pretty much the ideal oscillator octave controller i've been looking for.

so, the initial run of the Aroom WK1 module is sold. I already got requests for more.
:nana:

none is left for myself (as usual) :waah:

How can you transpose pitch with Links? Can you explain a sample patch please?

You can use the 2:2 section. Just patch the sequence you want to transpose and whatever controller you'll use to send the transpose CV in both inputs.
The 2:2 section is a 2-input summer with unity gains (also known as a precision adder). The sum of the two input channels is distributed to 2 outputs.

So .. old thread but I was just pointed towards a very useful thing the WK1 Aroom is great for:

3 channel Euro to Moog adapter. I wasn't aware that Moog still is using the -5 to +5 V/oct scheme.
Anyway for this person I am modding a -5V reference to the WK1 normaled to T input, so he can play the DFAM VCOs lower with euro sequencers.
(Not tested yet but well let's hope I don't have a brain fart and this works as expected)
This could also work the other way around (+5V) if someone would like to use the MIDI interface & sequencer of the Mother32 for euro. BUT not both in one WK1 module.

Oh I meant if anyone is still modding it to be a 3 channel adder?

Ladik easy quantizer also has CV for the transpose... Or am I missing something? 4HP http://ladik.ladik.eu/?page_id=769

I added it to the list, but a lot of modules can handle to transpose a voice. Right now only the WK1 can handle to transpose 3 voices in 2hp. And it can be chained. So it's really the ultimate transpose utility module here.

Aaah it is kind of cool, hmmm money-time-money-time.
I can imagine how it wound sound having 3 independent seq. Running and shifting them all together :)
