Arcade Manifold is a passive multi-functional controller both available in Eurorack and Standalone format.
There are 4 identical channels. Each channel can do :
- Connect signal when button pushed;
- Signal pull to ground when button pushed.
This would result in normal on and normal off operation for the button.
By using 1/8 or 1/4 jacks, you can use banana jacks to passive mix signals from different channels. Mixing can happen at 2 places :
- At input : sending the same mix to different outputs, controlling which channel to send to with buttons;
- At output : sending the same mix to differerent outputs, controlling which signal presents in the mix with buttons.
Combining all these features, you can customize your own signal routes that can be played live with speed and precision. Arcade switches are from SANWA, and of the highest quality.
With some modular synthesis instrument that react to ground connection, like Ciat-Lonbarde instruments, you can control them without any input! For example, you can trigger the sound of Gongue and AVDog on Plumbutter, or alter the timber of Sidrassi with its glitch inputs, etc.
It can also be used as multiple and format jumbler.
*Please note, Arcade Manifold panels are now BLACK w/ gold instead of BLUE w/ gold.
