Sensory Translator


The Sensory Translator is a five-channel envelope follower module. Since each of the module’s channels is essentially a band-passed frequency band, the resulting control voltage evolves from the volume of each band. Use the external audio input, microphone, or both at once to turn the sounds around you into five channels of CV control over your patch. Listen to the room. The Sensory Translator comes equipped with an omnidirectional microphone that can hear more than you can!
