I got a chance to play with the prototypes of the 4MS VCA Matrix & Pingable Envelope Generator this past week while Dann & Jeannot were visiting Berlin. As the layout & features of both modules might change, I won't go into detail. Here's a quick, uncommented, run-through:

4MS VCAM & PEG Demo by navs

The VCAM works as you'd expect: it's a matrix mixer with the added benefit of SSM VCAs & mutes, capable of processing both CVs & audio. The LED mute buttons, in particular, would be useful in performance.

The PEG offers tempo-sync'd envelopes/ LFOs with control over multiplication or division of the envelope time, contour shaping tools and various trigger outs. With a little feedback and when run at audio-rates it can produce chaotic results.

Thanks to Dann for bringing them round - looking forward to the final versions!
