‘Boss Bow Tie’ is an 8 way bidirectional voltage addressed switch. An input ‘I/O’ signal is mapped to an output ‘I/O’ via a corresponding control voltage. As bidirectional, this can be either 1 of up to 8 inputs into a single output or a single input into 1 of up to 8 outputs.
A modulation source is applied to the control input, and this determines which step is active and the rate at which the steps switch. This input features both an attenuverter and offset to precisely select which of the 8 I/O’s are available to be ‘switched’ by the connected modulation source.
The beauty of the Boss Bow Tie is that you are NOT limited to switching through the steps sequentially, but can jump about at will. For tempo-synced switching, use a clocked stepped modulation source (such as the output from a Sample & Hold, Random Voltage Source or Sequencer). If desired, you can also use LFOs and envelopes to switch through the steps with no regard to clocks or tempo.
Unlike standard sequential switches, which have a gate/trigger input for clocking the switch, a normalized ‘Gate’ input enables and disables the switch allowing for rhythmic and other effects.
The module is intended primarily for flexible routing of CV signals. Though audio signals will work – audible clicks can sometimes be apparent when switching I/O’s.
