We’re back with another installment on Acid Rain Technology’s lineup. This post is all about Navigator, a playable interface for signal mixing, attenuversion, and offset generation. Navigator provides detailed control over any CV source or input in your system, and it will work just as well with audio. The module consists of two circuits that are normalled together intelligently: a unipolar (0-5v) fader-based attenuator, and a bipolar (-5-5v) knob-based attenuverter. The inputs for both are normalled to +5v, meaning the outputs become offsets when nothing is patched in to their inputs for attenuation. The fader passes through to the attenuverter...

The μ input, or microRate input, allows doppler style pitch effects even while externally clocking Mimeophon. You can pre-order Mimeophon from us here.  Make Noise have also included some very nice tips for getting the most of this module, for example: "Zones 6 and 7 are very long, to the extent that all manipulations of the Mimeophon in...
