Kitty Eyes was made for experimentation. The module’s behavior can be changed drastically via parameter adjustments and the introduction of external audio signals or control voltages.
Here’s a quick look at the functional range of Kitty Eyes:
Speed potentiometer: Controls the frequency of the chaos oscillator. – Sort of a coarse tune parameter that goes down to the LFO range.
X and Y outputs: These connectors emit two audio respectively CV signals. They differ in phase and characteristics. The outputs therefore vary in tonality or shape of the modulation waveforms.
CV input: The control voltage connector can be fed with a multitude of signals. Triggers are usable to align Kitty Eyes to a rhythm, for example. Signals from an external VCO transform the module into an unstable sync oscillator. LFO waves and noise can also be used profitably.
CV potentiometer: This control element serves as an attenuator for the control voltage input. If no cable is plugged into the connector, the knob is normalized to a fixed voltage. It can then be used as a fine tune potentiometer.
Trig output: This connector outputs chaotic trigger sequences. They can be used as control signals or audio material.
Thrsh: Controls the threshold value and thus the probability with which trigger signals are generated.
