Pittsburgh Modular PMS2041 overview

  • 1Description

The Lifeforms Mod Tools from Pittsburgh Modular provides a diverse analog ecosystem of modulation capable of a variety of functions including an envelope generator, LFO, noise source, sample & hold, mixer, analog logic, slew, and oscillator.

The module is broken up into four sections: Multi-Function, Analog Logic, Noise / Sample & Hold, and Modulation. The Multi-Function section is a voltage-controlled slope generator that can be used as a voltage-controlled envelope, LFO, oscillator, slew, envelope follower, and more. The Analog Logic section is a two-channel mixer with standard unity gain mix out as well as an analog "or" logic output. The "or" logic outputs the current highest positive-only voltage from either of the inputs, creating interesting modulation or wave shaping options. Patching audio signals through the "or" output creates a half-rectified waveform.

The Noise / Sample & Hold section pairs an analog noise source with a sample & hold circuit to create random stepped CV signals. The Modulation section provides a free-running LFO with both square and wine wave outputs. The Lifeforms Mod Tools module is 8hp wide, 1.5" (37mm) deep and requires 53mA of power. The module includes a ribbon cable.
