A long-awaited addition to the Softube Modular platform, the 4ms Pingable Envelope Generator opens up a vast array of possibilities beyond the basic ADSR envelope generator included in the core Modular package.
Two independent envelope generators can be ´pinged´ by external sources - your DAW clock, for example - to define the cycle-length of the envelope(s) and generate rhythmic effects and interactions never before possible in Modular.
Summary of Features
Two-channel pingable envelope generator
Use one side at a time to sync the rhythmic aspects of a sound to your track tempo
Use both sides to quickly concoct awesome generative rhythmic chaos
Detailed control of the shape of the envelope when generating drum sounds
Easily create some controllable motion in your textures
Adds hugely to the capabilities of your Softube Modular system
Fully licensed and endorsed by 4ms, manufacturers of the original hardware, the Softube 4ms PEG expands your creative horizon. Create crazy polyrhythms for percussive clicks and beeps, or match the elastic wobble of a dubstep bassline to the tempo of your track with ease.
Multiply the pinged tempo of each channel to fit two, three, four or more envelope cycles into each beat, or divide to generate longer cycles which still conform to your pinged tempo.
And send the envelope generated by one side to CV modulate the parameters of the other. This module is fantastic for fun experimentation, and often results in happy accidents and creative inspiration.
With tons of routing options and CV inputs, this module makes serious noise even if it´s not intended to make a single sound of its own. Try it and see.
"I was very pleased to see that you kept the original PEG´s internal sampling rate and that self-patched feedback loop patch also works on the virtual version!" - Dan Green (Founder of 4ms)
