Tromso Utility Module

Bastl Tromso Utility Module

The Tromoso by Bastl instruments is a tripartite combination of three useful utility modules inspired by mid-90s analog distortion boxes: a VCO, comparator, and sample & hold. The module’s internal normalization ensures double usage as an analog sample rate reducer. 

Tromoso’s VCA tracks at 1V/Oct with the FM Attenuator fully open, and each section is capable of functioning independently. 

Tromso Features

  • 5HP
  • Triangle core VCO
  • Exponential FM input with Attenuator Knob
  • Tracks volt per octave over about 5 octaves when attenuator is fully open
  • Switch to change range of the VCO – high= 15Hz-45kHz, low=50s – 50Hz
  • VCO output is normalised to Comparator Input thus Comparator Output creates pulse waveform for the VCO (Threshold = PWM)
  • Comparator has Threshold Knob, CV Input for Threshold, Input and Output with indication LED
  • S&H section has gate input, input and output
  • Switch to select mode: Sample & Hold (samples at rising gate and then holds) or Track & Hold (at high gate tracks, at low gate holds)
