The 2hp Bell features physical modeling to create metallic percussion sounds. The trigger input will cause a new note to be created which is indicated by the LED. Six voices can be synthesized at once, and the oldest will be replaced when a new trigger is detected.
The Pitch knob sets the fundamental frequency of the sound, which can also be played tonally using the v/oct input. The control remains active for the most recently generated note providing the opportunity for vibrato, slew, and easier tuning while a note is ringing out.
Its sonic pallette includes eight physical models which can be selected manually using the potentiometer or voltage controlled thanks to the dedicated CV input:
- Pure Bell
- Pure Vibraphone
- Harmonic Vibraphone
- Hard Marimba
- Soft Marimba
- Tibetan Bowl
- Wine Glass
- Redwood Plate
The Damp control allows to change the resonance of the excitor filters which also affects the overall decay time.
CV inputs: Model, Damp, V/Oct.
