The Hexinverter Galilean Moons is a dual amplitude transmutator that utilizes envelopes and VCAs to manipulate the amplitude of incoming signals. The primary focus of the module is converting external audio signals into percussive sounds, though it can be used for a variety of other tasks, including the generation of more traditional synthesizer timbres.
Each of the module’s “moons” features a voltage-controlled AD envelope, each with a dedicated linear VCA. Additionally, the envelopes are switchable from AD to ASR to LFO. The module’s VCA section is capable of functioning independently but can also be normalled to Hexinverter’s Jupiter Storm module via expansion cable.
Each of the module’s sections can be used independently simply by breaking the internal connections by patching a cable into the respective input. This opens the module to a variety of uses beyond its initial intentions.
Galilean Moons Features
Two voltage controlled digital functions (envelopes), each normalised to their own low-distortion linear, DC-coupled voltage controlled amplifier
Each envelope offers percussive attack/decay, attack/sustain/release or looping (LFO) mode
Envelopes can each be linear or exponential
Enables a new noise output, “XOR”, if plugged into a Jupiter Storm behind the panel. (everything besides the XOR output works with or without a Jupiter Storm!)
VCA inputs are normalised to the newly-enabled XOR and main (“I”) output of Jupiter Storm when nothing else is plugged in
The envelopes and VCAs can be fully utilised elsewhere in your system by plugging into the corresponding function’s jacks
Perfect for synthesizing voltage controlled percussion and other effects!
