Sample and Hold (S&H)
|Top Previous Next|
The S&H module is driven internally by a series of pulses called a clock, the speed of which is dictated by the Rate control. When a clock pulse occurs, the dedicated internal noise signal is 'sampled' - its current value is 'snapshotted' - and held constant at the sampled value until the next clock pulse, when the process repeats.
This control introduces slew, or 'lag', between each sampled and held value, resulting in a smoother transition between values instead of abrupt changes with the control at the minimum setting (fully anti-clockwise).
The Gain control offers a final attenuation control for the output of the module before it enters the TransMod modulation system. At 100%, no attenuation is applied to the output modulation signal.
This control is intended to be modulated by other TransMod sources, in a similar way to using a VCA to scale one modulation source with another in an analogue modular system.
