Pressure Points, from Make Noise, is a tactile control voltage generator meant to be played and touched. It provides four different sets of three voltage outputs that can be switched by touching the panels exposed board tracings. There is also a Pressure output, which measures the amount of ones finger touching the tracings, providing a higher voltage when more of the tracings are touched. A gate output is also present for both their four individual channels as well as a global gate for any time the tracings are touched.
When paired with the Make Noise Brains, one can turn Pressure points into a 3CH, four-step sequencer. A second Pressure Points can be chained with Brains, giving an eight-step sequencer.
Pressure Points Features
Controller and Tactile Analog Sequencer Module
The Gate signals may be used to turn portions of a patch ON/ OFF, generate Timing Events within a patch or to Trigger a Function Generator such as MATHS
The PRESSure signals may be used to add expression to a patch by varying Pitch or Timbre in real-time, based upon the artist's input
The Tuned Voltages may be used to play the Pitch of a sound in a traditional melodic fashion, Program Chords or Timbral shifts (aka Presets)
Up to 4 may be CHAINed together (using CHAIN Cable), to create controllers of varying size and complexity
All outputs are capable of driving a passive 4 way mult without loading effects (no buffered mult needed)
Expansion port allows for sequential control via the BRAINS expander module
