Noise Engineering Confundo Funkitus
Confundo Funkitus crossfades between two sets of four rhythms using probability. Three different probability curves can be selected to control the behavior of the crossfader. Per-part switch mutes are included with live performance in mind.
• Inputs 1-4 Left: these are gate inputs that feed into the crossfader core. They represent the rhythm that will have 100% probability when the crossfader is fully left.
• Inputs 1-4 Right: These are gate inputs that feed into the crossfader core. They represent the rhythm that will have 100% probability when the crossfader is fully right.
• Outputs 1-4: Where the combined rhythm emerges. Each output is a probabilistic combination of its two similarly numbered inputs.
• Mutes 1-4: These switches mute their respective output channels.
• Curve: Three probability modes are available to set the probability function used by the crossfader.
• XFADE is the heart of the Confundo Funkitus. Its position, along with the current Curve mode, controls the probability that an individual input gate will be sent to the output.
• XCV grants CV control over the XFADE controller. XCV is additive with the XFADE control and allows XCV to be unipolar, bipolar and negative unipolar, depending on XFADE's position. If XFADE is fully left, XCV acts as a unipolar input. When centered, it acts as bipolar. When fully right, it becomes a negative unipolar input.
• Burn is a button and gate input that pushes all 8 inputs to their outputs, providing a quick way to trigger a short, intense burst of rhythm.
• The LED will illuminate when the XFADE is centered. This is used for giving visual feedback that the crossfader is in the center position as well as for calibrating the position of the detent (see below).
