Doepfer's new A-182-2 is a four-way passive switch. Each switch offers three positions and allows you to switch between two signals or completely interrupt signal transmission.
A-182-2 is a simple passive module that contains four changeover switches, which are used to connect or disconnect the sockets of the corresponding socket triplet:
- in the upper position of the switch the upper socket of the corresponding socket triplet is connected to the center socket
- in the lower position of the switch the lower socket of the corresponding socket triplet is connected to the center socket
- in the center position of the switch the sockets are not connected
Each unit of the module can be used to switch between two signals or to interrupt/connect a signal. In the last case the third socket of the triplet is not used.
The module is fully passive and both audio or control signals can be switched.
WIth a long trajectory building synths, MIDI keyboards and designing bespoke devices for music pioneers Kraftwerk, Dieter Doepfer decided to design his own modular synthesizer in 1995 based on existing electrical and mechanical specifications of lab equipment he used during his years at university. The official presentation of the system at 1996 Frankfurt Musikmesse caught everyone by surprise and created lots of interest. After Doepfer published the specifications on his website, many instrument designers and engineers saw the potential of the new Eurorack format. Doepfer continues expanding their catalog of over 200 modules (and counting), operating from their modest offices in the outskirts of Munich.
