Pathways is a modular matrix mixer designed for feedback manipulation, creative routing, weird synthesis... and many other things.

The Matrix

The core of Pathways is the 4x4 VCA matrix on the left of the panel.

The inputs are on the top left side of the panel, the outputs on the right side. Under the four input jacks there are four gain/drive knobs that can amplify and bring to saturation for any input signal. Pathways accepts signals up to 10Vpp.

Each of the four rows can be imagined as a 4 input mixer, each arrow on the right side visually connects the four volume knobs to the output jack.

Each of the 16 intersections has its own volume control that doubles as an attenuator when an external signal is patched into the CV inout plus its own LED volume indicator.

The Envelope Follower / Clock Divider

Input four is normalled to an envelope follower, its output is then routed to a 3 stage clock divider.

The envelope follower has a sensibility control knob, the output is dependent on the relation between input gain and sensibility. Visual feedback of the signal generated is given by a dedicated LED.

The clock divider has an external input jack, if a clock/LFO is patched into it'll bypass the envelope follower signal.

LFO X

LFO X is a voltage controlled LFO with two outputs 180 degrees out of phase between each other. The shape knob controls the triangle wave saturation level: at 0% the output is a triangle-sine wave mix, at 100% a squarewave with smooth edges.

The CV input accepts signals between 0-5V, once an external voltage is detected at the input the rate knob acts as an attenuator.

If a gate signal is patched in the "reverse" input the right output gets inverted while the gate input is high, thus creating a more complex time-dependant CV waveform.

LFO X stops when speed knob is turned fully counterclockwise.

LFO Y

LFO Y is a voltage controlled LFO with two outputs: rising sawtooth and descending sawtooth.

The CV input accepts signals between 0-5V, once an external voltage is detected at the input the speed knob acts as an attenuator.
