Polyphonic time-shifting module
Tempi is a 6 channel, polyphonic, time-shifting module. It provides an intuitive method for the creation and recalling of complex clocking arrangements within a modular synthesizer system.
The primary user interface and programming elements for the module are six large, illuminated buttons (BUTTON 1 through 6), and two smaller illuminated buttons (PGMA and PGMB). The module is able to store up to 64 clock/timing scenarios called STATES, arranged in 4 BANKS of 16 STATES each. An LED is used to indicate the current BANK by COLOUR, and changes in STATE which are indicated by FLASHING . There are INPUTS for External TEMPO, a Gate INPUT for MOD, and STATE Selection via a CV INPUT (with Combo pot for attenuation) and / or GATE INPUT.
The primary goal of this module is to have the maximum amount of artist-controlled musical variation with a minimum amount of data inputs.
