Today we are going to look at two useful utilities in a modular system.
Attenuators and Attenuverters.
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 "tame" control signals/voltages but can however be used to trim the gain of an audio signal.
Attenuverter - is similar to the Attenuator but has the added capability of being able to invert the incoming control signal/voltage.
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.
|0 - Nothing||0 - flipped wave (positive is negative , negative is positive)|
|5 - Half||5 - Nothing|
|10 - Full Signal||10 - Full Signal|
