Attenuators and Attenuverters
Today we are going to look at two useful utilities in a modular system.
Attenuation and an Attenuversion
We will define the terms and then describe the application within a system.
Attenuator - an electronic device that reduces the amplitude of an electronic signal.
Attenuators are usually used to control signals/voltages but can be used to trim the gain of an audio signal.
Attenuverter - a version of an attenuator that allow the signals voltage or polarity to be inverted or non-inverted.
Attenuverters can be useful when you want to modulate several destinations in opposite directions, one receiving positive control modulation and another destination receiving negative modulation.
