The Doepfer A-185-1 is an incredibly useful module for accessing one of the Eurorack standard's most underutilized resources: the internal CV/Gate Bus.
Eurorack power supplies internally facilitate the transfer of voltage and gate between particular modules. When Doepfer developed the Eurorack standard, he envisioned the CV/Gate bus as a way to connect a single voltage to all oscillators in a system and a single gate to all envelopes in a system. While not every manufacturer makes use of this potential in their modules, many Doepfer designs do.
The A-185-1 provides input and output access to this internal CV/Gate bus. This allows you not only to inject CV and Gate into their respective bus channels, but also to connect the internal bus to modules not equipped to receive these voltages internally. Multiple outputs for both the CV and Gate lines can be connected to modules near the Bus Access, keeping cable clutter to a minimum.
Making excellent use of an underutilized Eurorack feature, the A-185-1 Bus Access allows for easy and clever routing of voltages in your system.
