Gene is an Envelope Generator with an integrated Clock/Trigger Source.
The potentiometer RISE, RING, HOLD and FALL change the envelope shape just like an
ADSR envelope. The Trigger Button lets you fire the envelope manually. Changing from
Long to Short using the upper Switch makes this module more suitable for percussion
In order to cycle the envelope there is an integrated trigger source connected to
GATE IN. This way you will have an LFO kind of Envelope Generator. The Fast/Slow
Switch changes the speed range of the RATE potentiometer from very slow up to audio
rates. If there is a cable patched into GATE IN, the internal Trigger will be disconnected
from the envelope, but still be available at the TRIG OUT jack.
Using the CV/HOLD Input you can change the rate speed and hold the trigger, if voltage
Additionally there is an inverted output inverting the maximum of +8V at the output
from either +8V to 0V or 0V to -8V via jumper.
