Pittsburgh Modular PMS2028 overview

  • 1Description

The Lifeforms KB-1 from Pittsburgh Modular offers a set of unique and intuitive tools for controlling Eurorack modular synthesizers and features a multi-function capacitive-touch keyboard with an arpeggiator, step-sequencer, voltage-memory pads and trigger pads. The eleven outputs allow you to explore uncharted sonic territories with an unprecedented amount of control. The module can be set to function in monophonic or duophonic modes with user-selectable note priority and retrigger options, while the 10-note programmable arpeggiator generates patterns and includes the ability to single or double trigger notes as well as generate random gates to add complexity. The Lifeforms KB-1 is 42hp wide, 1.5" / 38.0mm deep, and requires 160mA of power. The module ships with a ribbon cable.

KB-1 Components

Touch Keyboard

  • The Lifeforms KB-1 provides a multi-function, capacitive-touch keyboard designed for performance, offering a powerful one octave adjustable, pressure-sensitive keyboard complete with arpeggiator, step sequencer, four voltage-memory pads, two trigger pads, and eleven 1/8" / 3.5mm outputs
Arpeggiator

  • The Lifeforms KB-1 features a playable, ten note arpeggiator. This robust arpeggiator can cycle through one to three octaves and contains three different arpeggiator modes, including single- or double-note trigger, and random monophonic or duophonic note cycling with random gates. Probability gate-burst mode can trigger additional random gates to add complexity to arpeggios. This feature enables you to have rolling pulses divided by the clock source, allowing for dramatic rhythmic variations of your sequence
Sequencer

  • The feature-packed sixty-four step sequencer with multiple play modes gives you precise control over the cycling of your sequence, including forward, reverse, or random. Sequences are quickly created by step programming and each step can have one of six step modifiers: pitch bend, tie, single trigger, double trigger, quad trigger, and whole note. Once the sequence is complete, the first note of a sequence can be shifted back or forward, resulting in generating new sequences out of your initial performance. Probability gate-burst mode is also available to sequences adding real-time complexity to a performance.
Triggers

  • The two assignable trigger buttons enable you to unleash your creative potential in new ways. Trigger 1 and trigger 2 can be independently assigned to one of six different trigger button modes including pressure-sensitive pitch bend, gate, latch enable/disable, trigger, pressure-sensitive trigger-burst generator, and a pressure-sensitive clock divider
Preset Voltage Memories

  • The programmable voltage-memory section can function as a four-channel sequencer, cycling forward, reverse, or randomly; or the active channel can be selected manually allowing the section to function as a 4-channel voltage memory. Voltages are unquantized analog voltages between 0 and 5 volts. Multiple clocking options are available to drive the preset voltage-memory sequencer
Clocking

  • The Lifeforms KB-1 can be clocked internally via tap tempo or from an external clock source such as a sequencer, square wave, trigger, or clock divider. This allows you to either play on your own, or perform locked in time with external devices
