Voltage Mechanic is a CV Processor/Mixer/Sample&Hold module.
In essence it consists of four units:
Spanner - amplitude or phase adjustment (center corresponds to 0)
Hammer - Offset
Hacksaw - Rectifier (selects either the positive or negative part of the waveform)
After that, three outputs are available for the sum signals:
Mix - Sum
Inverted Mix - inverted sum
Ratchet Voltage Out - output of the Sample&Hold circuit
The signal paths run from left to right with the exception that the Sample&Hold circuit is also clocked/triggered on the right side. Each of the four input signals can be picked up individually and at the sum outputs. The module is thus the perfect tool between your modulation sources and modulation destinations.
Mike Brown studied at electronic music at Cal State University San Bernardino and always wanted to have a modular system he couldn't afford. In 1994 he discovered the book "Build your own synthesizer" by Thomas Henry at a local library. Years later, fed up of his corporate day job, he started Livewire and produced iconic modules such as the Dual Cyclotron, FrequenSteiner, Chaos Computer or the AFG oscillator. Mike Brown passed away in 2012. His long time friend Steve Rightnor is currently keeping his legacy alive, reissuing the iconic AFG.
