MAKROW was developed by Future Sounds Systems in partnership with Daniel Miller of MUTE Records.
MAKROW is a patch macro-controller, giving 6 attenuvertable outputs from a single bias voltage, controllable from the large dial at the top of the panel. This dial can be switched from spanning 0V to +10V (unipolar) to spanning -10V to +10V (bipolar). Designed with live performance in mind, MAKROW allows for dramatic control sweeps and massive sounding patch changes, all at the turn of a single knob.
External signals can also be summed to this bias voltage using the CV input, which is also attenuvertable. This allows for further global control of the six parameters patched from MAKROW, as the CV signal is then passed through each channel’s own attenuverter.
All attenuverter controls have been designed to act with an S-law curve as they are turned. This means that, whilst not mechanically (thus inaccurately) centre-detented, electronically each attenuverter gives finer control around the centre-zero position.
Power: 25mA @ +12V / 25mA @ -12V
