Author LPG & Dual Preamp - 2 new modules, Jul19

More details up online next week.

LPG (Low Pass Gate) - vactrol based in a similar manner to old designs but now with integrated Variable-Decay 'Hit' generator. The switch offers LowPass/Both/Gate modes.
[I realised last week that you could kind of make a Decay/Sustain/Release response by patching a keyboard gate into both the Hit and CV modulation - using the gate via CV as the final sustain level after the transient hit - little bonus feature!]
£140 - Current V+ 25mA & V- 15mA

Dual Preamp - twin balanced input line preamplifier to bring external line signals up to modular levels. Clean gain up to c.20dB. LED indicator lights green for signal and red when +/-5V is exceeded. There is a rear jumper for each side which adds zener limiting to clamp the output to +/-5V [ie. overdrive saturation crunch]
£130 - Current V+ 30mA & V- 30mA

That LPG looks freakin awesome! Love the 'hit' function!

What's the vactrol response like on the LPG Tom?

thank you, chris

I can confirm, tom’s lpg sounds warm, wordy and beautiful as ever. It has this sharpness to it that I love. Thanks Tom!

Short and snappy or does it ring longer?

I go through the vactrols selecting ones which have relatively fast responses - the slow ones feel too slow. And I don't think I particularly want to have two different classes floating around, one fast one slow. You can always slow down CVs, but speeding things up is harder.

can the LPG process CVs?

just stick 2 in there and let us choose with a switch w00t

CVs - no, but the cutoff point is 0.15Hz

I gotta say, I didn't really get what all the hubbub was about with LPGs until I tried this one from Tom yesterday. What a beautiful processor! So much character, and really lends itself for playing via the CTL1 or JoyTouch with the aforementioned method of feeding a gate to hit+cv input together.
Great work Tom! we're not worthy
