This second-generation 9700-series processing element for modular sound synthesizers is designed to provide great sound and excellent value. This module is designed to be compatible with most modular synthesizer systems with little or no modification. Most active components are already mounted, making assembly a snap.
The 9752 monitors the input signal voltage and copies it to the output, synchronized to changes in an input control voltage (CV) or an input clock, or synchronized to an internal clock if there is no external input. The input may be an audio or control signal. One typical application uses noise as an input signal and a variable rate clock to control sampling. This provides a random control voltage source from the module output.
The module's use with audio signals is enhanced by a switch option to change the function from "sample and hold" to "gate and hold", where the output tracks the input signal as long as the control input voltage is above a threshold (or, if selected, the internal clock rises). After the control voltage drops, the output voltage freezes until the next high-going transition of the control voltage (or the internal clock rises again).
