ALM Busy Circuits Boss Bow Two

The Boss Bow Two from ALM Busy Circuits is an eight-way bidirectional voltage controlled switch that can act as a complex signal router with three modes. A bidirectional switch can be used to send one input to multiple outputs, or send multiple inputs to one output.

Boss Bow Two's behavior is determined by the current mode selection: step, address, and strobe. Step mode sequentially steps through the stages when the module receives a clock input. Address mode allows voltage control over the I/O selection, great for use with envelopes, LFOs, random voltages, and more. The selected I/O stage is determined by the bipolar CV input with attenuverter and the offset control. Strobe mode combines both modes, using the CV input and offset to select which I/O stage is active, but only changing when it receives a clock input, similar to a sample and hold. In strobe and step modes, the reset input causes the selection to return to the first I/O stage. In address mode, it behaves as an on/off switch.

The Boss Bow Two accepts audio, CV, or gate signals and can route in either direction, making it a powerful routing tool in whatever patch it is placed in. Combine and select between CV signals for complex modulation, route gate signals for evolving rhythmic patterns, or move between droning audio sources for glitchy stepped changes.

Introducing Boss Bow Two - 8 Way Multimode Switch - ALM027
The brand new Boss Bow Two is an eight way bidirectional multimode switch with three different selection modes: step, strobe, and address. These control methods and I/O flexibility allow for a wide range of potential patches with Boss Bow Two as it can interface with essentially any signals generated in a modular system. In this video we look at making complex LFOs, routing voices, modifying/creating trigger patterns, creating unique sequences, slicing up envelopes, switch ring modulation, and much more!
