The Hi Hat is a microcontroller based synth module. It can be built in either +/-12V or +/- 15V systems with no modification. It is compatible with the expander from BMC003 (Arpeggiator) for using external control voltage on the 5 analog parameters. It's a descendent of BMC010, Decaying Digital Noise, but offers finer control and the ability to switch between two sets of parameters.
- Close Decay Knob – This sets the rate at which the signal decays on closed hits
- Open Decay Knob – Same but for Open hits
- Close Pitch Knob – This sets the rate on closed hits at which random numbers are sampled to generate the digital noise. Further clockwise slows it down more producing less high frequency.
- Open Pitch Knob – Same but for Open hits
- Shape Knob – This sets the mix between a logarithmic or linear curve of decay. Full clockwise is linear and full counterclockwise is logarithmic. This control is very interactive with the decay knobs.
- Reverse Logic Toggle – This reverses the logic of the Open/Close Input. It becomes normally open instead of normally closed.
- Close Gate Toggle – This sets whether or not closed hits decay at the falling edge of a gate input instead of at the rising edge. This lets you adjust gate lengths of your sequencer as another control for the module.
- Open Gate Toggle – Same but for Open mode.
- IN – The trigger or gate is input here to control timing of the hits.
- Open/Close In – Input a gate signal here. When a rising edge is detected on the IN, the OPEN/CLOSE input will be checked, and depending on the setting of the Reverse logic toggle, this will determine whether or not the hit will be open or closed.
- Out - +/-5V output of decaying noise signal.
