This is classic modular stuff with a crazy random audio backdrop to spice things up. Very mad scientist.

The VCA Matrix


* 4 CV/audio inputs and outputs (dc-coupled)

* 16 VCA's using high quality SSM chips

* Playable surface with 16 LED latching "Punch In/Out" buttons to mute each VCA (mute button disconnects CV jack and Offset knob, and silences the VCA)

* LED brightness indicates sum of CV jack, Offset knob, and mute button

* 16 knobs to set the offset (center gain) of each VCA

* 16 CV jacks for VCA level. Jacks are normalled together in columns, and along row 1

* Expandability: VCAM's can be connected to form a larger matrix (4x8, 8x8, 12x4, etc). Also a gate header on the PCB will allow for connection to forthcoming programmable/sequencable control surface module

* Suitable as a 4x4 mixer, spliter, as well as dynamic signal router

* CV jacks go well into the audio range for FM-type sideband effects


Pingable Envelope Generator

 which takes clock/gates from an RCD/SCM, for example, outputting envelopes to the VCAMatrix which will smoothly vary signal routings/levels at clockable rates."
