Vector Space simulates a room in which a position marker can be moved around via three control voltages. As a CV signal becomes stronger, it pushes the marker in the corresponding direction and the values at the outputs change. - With such a concept you think of digital technology, of course, but in fact Vector Space is a fully analog module.
The control voltage inputs are equipped with switches. They allow you to choose between two voltage ranges, in detail -5 V to +5 V or 0 V to +10 V. Thus, any modulator can be used. LFOs, random generators, sequencers, envelopes, a joystick… Just start patching. The switches are also suitable for quick variations of the module’s behavior. The 17 CV outputs can be divided into three groups:
Eight cube outputs: The corners of the room model. Two-colored LEDs indicate the strength and polarity of the control voltages available at the sockets.
Six plane outputs: Represent the walls of the room model. In detail, the connectors provide a rectified version of two input signals summed with an in phase or out of phase version of the third control voltage. Once again there are two-colored LEDs.
Three sphere outputs: At one socket, the sum of all rectified input signals is emitted. This voltage represents the distance between the position marker and the center of the room. Another output emits a negative version of the signal. The third connector reflects the distance between the position marker and the nearest corner.
