The Make Noise Function Module is the little brother of the Maths. It is a single channel function generator with all the same goodies as the Maths: VC Rise and Fall, a knob for exponential to logarithmic shaping, Gate and trigger inputs, and a cycle switch. It has both End of Rise and End of Cycle gate outputs to easily translate analog to digital information, and two dedicated CV outputs, one unipolar positive, and the other unipolar negative. Something missing from Maths is the "Hang" function, which pauses the voltage output whenever a positive gate is patched into it. This can create sample and hold like effects if the module is cycling, as well as complex envelopes or modulation waveshapes.
As mentioned in the page for Maths, having an entire synthesizer that is exclusively Function modules would be a very powerful synth, with every essential function covered by the versatility of the Function module.
Analog Computer Module Designed for Musical Control Voltage Manipulation and Generation
Generates a variety of linear, logarithmic, or exponential functions
Functions as short as 2ms and as long as 25 minutes per cycle!
Triggered Functions (Envelope)
Continuous Functions (LFO)
Invert and/ or Integrate (Lag, Slew, Portamento)
Discrete Time Functions (S&H, T&H)
LEDs indicate activity on all outputs
End of Rise and End of Cycle Pulses facilitate programming of more complex functions
All outputs capable of driving a passive 4 way mult without loading effects (no buffered mult needed here)
Perfect for modulating the DPO and just about anything else
Elektron Analog Four MKII With A Tiny Modular Synth
This video shows how an Elektron Analog Four MKII can be used with a eurorack modular synthesizer. The Analog Four can output 4 CV signals for triggering and controlling sounds from the modular and the modular can be plugged into the Analog Four to be mixed with the other voices and be run through the effects. The Analog Four is triggering a Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas Alter, WMD Chimera and Make Noise synth made with STO, Function and LxD.
