Description

The Addac502 module generates Lissajous curves, so you can use complex harmonic motion in your sinthesis. These elaborated oscillations can create wonderful sounds, that go way beyond typical LFO modulation.

Lissajous curves create beautiful motion, that can go from simple circles, to more complex parabolic representations and even pseudo-3D structures or the so-called Lissajous knots.

Features

Amplitude - Maximum and Minimum (for both the x and y curves)
Frequency (for both the x and y curves)
4 independent outputs
Several output modes (controlled through thumb wheel switches)

. Frequency and Amplitude of both curves can be controlled either manually or through CV.

. Several output modes: curve1 x, curve2 x, curve1 y, curve 2 y or averaging between two or more of the previous.

. Any of the modes can be mapped to the desired physical output.

Interactive Users Guide

In order to better illustrate the behavior of this module we developed a javascript app for potential users to test and better understand the module’s inherent features.

This guide features all the functions of the real hardware module plus a graphical display that resembles an oscilloscope and a very simple sound engine as if the module output was plugged straight into the CV input of a VCO.

The audiovisual experience of using this application makes it a very effective demonstration of the module’s operation.

 

 

Also available is the offline Java App cross compatible with the three main operating systems.
