In the great West Coast synthesis tradition Verbos presents a capacitive touchplate controller with three independent sections: a 32-key keyboard trimmed to 1V/octave, a bender section and a eight-key keyboard with variable output voltages per key. The touch plates are gold-plated and partially illuminated from the rear. The module can be powered with an external power supply as well.
The biggest part of the module is a keyboard with 32 touchplates in the usual piano arrangement. The keys are trimmed to 1V/octave and generate four signals simultaneously when touched: note CV, pressure CV, gate and a 10ms long trigger.
To be precise: not the pressure is measured but the amount of skin touching the keys.
Three touch plates in the upper right are used for octave transposition; the active touchplate glows red.
In the upper left there's a bender: one touch plate generates a negative voltage, the other a positive one. The voltage is wot added to the big keyboard's note CV but is available at an individual socket.
Centered is another keyboard which is not 1V/octave. It has eight touch plates, each of which can be tuned freely. Use it for recaling fixed voltages (presets) or a as a microtonal keyboard. Besides the CV these touchplates also generate pressure and gate. The active touch plate is illuminated by a LED sitting behind the perforated plate.
The module features an input for an external 9-15V DC supply and can be used in an un-powered skiff.

Mark Verbos started playing electronic music instruments at the early age of 13. He had the chance to learn electronics under the auspices of none other than Grant Richter and became the reference contact person for repairs of vintage Buchla systems. Years later, he started started creating the instruments he uses himself on stage under Verbos Electronics and since 2017 moved operations from NYC to Berlin.
