OR Switch

Status: Available at Etsy

OVERVIEW

Switch between two banks of three combinations of trigger/gate signals. Diodes on each of the inputs protect your gear from signal backflow in a way that mults don’t. Designed and perfected for blending and combining percussion patterns, this module allows for creative and performative expression of rhythmic sequences. This module is a collaboration between North Coast Modular Collective, AFRORACK, and Ali The Architect.

Funds from the limited edition AFRORACK and Ali Modular branded modules go toward supporting AFRORACK’s mission of providing children and young adults of color access to modular synthesizers and sound design tools.
