Usage and Patch Tips

The Q143 Presets module is a simple A/B switch and provides 2 voltage sources and 2 switches (SPDT). To provide a switch-selectable voltage, simply patch the output of a voltage section to the desired destination, then adjust the voltage at the A and B positions. To make a route change, simply patch the signals through the bottom switch sections. Signals can flow in either direction.

Filter Resonance Settings
Patch the output of one of the voltage sections to the voltage controlled Resonance input of the Q107 filter. Adjust the input level on the filter to +5 (Full), then adjust the voltage controls on the Q143 for both A and B positions.

Oscillator Octave Settings
Patch the output of one of the voltage sections to one of the 1V/Octave inputs on the Q106 Oscillator. Adjust the voltage controls on the Q143 for both A and B positions to select different octaves for each position.

Many More Possibilities
Use the Q143 to select various triggering sources for a sequencer, select between different banks of oscillators, provide various settings for Pan/Fade, or select between the ladder filter or the state variable filter. As with any module in this type of system, your imagination is the only limit.
