The basic premise is that you have four inputs (each with its own patchable volume control), and one output, and a sixteen-step sequencer grid that you can use to select which input is sent to the output at each step. When switching between inputs, a smooth (sigmoid curve) crossfade is applied, of controllable length. The stepping of the sequencer is driven by an external clock (something that fires BPM-controlled triggers, or just an LFO).
- Trance Gapper - route the same source into multiple inputs, adjusting or modulating the volume of each, and use the grid to produce rhythmically patterned volume modulation effects
- Rhythmic modulation - route the same input source into multiple effects signal chains, and use the grid to switch rhythmically between them, e.g. alternating between a clean and a distorted or filtered signal.
- Source interleaving - interleave multiple input sources, e.g. a guitar and a sequenced synth pattern, or oscillator tones tuned to different pitches for an arpeggiation effect with timbral variation.
and here's what that sounded like:
