IN STOCK

EACH CONTAINS AN INPUT SOCKET, AN OUTPUT SOCKET,

A POTENTIOMETER AND A PUSH BUTTON

MARKED WITH THE CAT PAW SIGN

EACH OF THE TWO CATPAW SECTIONS CAN OPERATE IN TWO MODES (CHANGE WITH JUMPER SWITCHES ON THE BACK SIDE):

  • CV MODE
  • AT MODE

QUICK REFERENCE ONBOARD

IN THIS MODE, ALL SIGNALS CONNECTED TO THE INPUT SOCKET ARE ROUTED TO OUTPUT THROUGH THE DEVICE CIRCUITRY WITH NO CHANGE TO THE SIGNAL (BYPASS) UNLESS THE PUSH BUTTON IS PRESSED.

AFTER PRESSING THE PUSH BUTTON THE INPUT

VOLTAGE IS REPLACED BY POTENTIOMETER DEFINED VOLTAGE AND POLARITY

CAN BE OF THREE DIFFERENT RANGES DEPENDING ON THE POSITION OF THE RANGE JUMPER:

from -5 to +5v, from 0 to +5v, AND from 0 to +10v.

THIS CAN BE USED AS A MOMENTARY CV MODULATION SOURCE, A MANUAL TRIG/GATE, OR AN AUDIO MUTE IF THE AUDIO SIGNAL IS CONNECED TO THE INPUT SOCKET IN THE LATTER CASE

AT MODE

HERE "AT" CAN MEAN "ATTENUATOR" or "AMPLIFICATOR" - BUT THERE'S MORE TO IT! UNLIKE THE CV MODE, THERE IS NO BYPASS –  THE INPUT SIGNAL IS IMMEDIATELY TRANSFORMED ACCORDING TO THE GAIN FACTOR RANGE AND THE POTENTIOMETER VALUE. 

THIS MODE FEATURES THREE GAIN FACTOR RANGES (SET WITH A JUMPER) – from -1 to +1, from 0 to +1, AND from 0 to +2

CAPAW

THERE ARE TWO IDENTICAL INDEPENDENT SICTIONS

CV MODE

CONTROL VOLTAGE

WHEN THE PUSH BUTTON IS PRESSED, THE OUTPUT SIGNAL MOMENTARILY TURNS INTO ZERO.

THIS CAN BE USED AS AN ATTENUATOR, A PRE-AMPLIFIER OR AN INVERTER AND THE MUTE FUNCTION IS HERE, DEPENDING ON THE INPUT SIGNAL TYPE (CV OR AUDIO)
