With the 2hp Pluck you can create impressive string sounds directly in your modular system. The module is a fully-loaded synthesizer voice. It uses the Karplus-Strong algorithm to generate sounds reminiscent of plucked string instruments. All the module needs is a trigger and a pitch control voltage (1 v / octave). Using only two parameters, damp and length, the sound can be shaped in various ways. Both parameters are voltage-controllable. Via the Damp knob, you can adjust the length and condition of the virtual string. The length potentiometer determines the sound’s envelope. With this knob turned fully clockwise, you’ll get results with strong transients. Turned the other way round, results will be reminiscent of classic pads. As Pluck is four-voice polyphonic, it is possible to play overlapping notes.
- Damp changes the length and condition of the virtual string.
- Length adjusts the transients and the decay of the sounds.
- Pitch sets the frequency of the generated tone.
