Planar Vector Joystick Panner - 14HP

Intellijel Planar

The Planar is Intellijel’s vector joystick module that also serves as a quad panner. It is an extremely tactile and effectual performance module that adds expressivity to any Eurorack modular setup. Depending on where it is positioned, Planar’s joystick isolates the signal at each input, with the center position serving as an even mix of all four signals. Things start to get really wild when the joystick’s CV outs are patched into the various CV ins of the oscillators and other sound sources being processed through each input, which is a great way to get variable, and powerful sounds that change in accordance with the joystick’s movements. 

Planar Features

  • Vector mixing: put up to four sources into inputs A, B, C and D and then use the joystick to create the vector mix – Positioning the joystick in any corner will isolate that particular source – Putting the joystick in the center will create an even blend of all four sources – Resulting mix is taken from the MIX output
  • Quad Panning: Plug one source into input A and steer it to outputs A, B, C, D. Users can also do stereo panning by just using a pair of outputs
  • SENSE gate output – This is a slew detector which means the gate is only active when the joystick is being moved – Excellent for driving envelopes/VCAs to coordinate so that the output mix is only heard/used when the joystick is being moved
  • Manual gate output: pushbutton to manually trigger a second gate output
  • CV Outputs: The joystick produces either unipolar (0-5V) or bipolar (-5 to +5V) switchable outputs
  • CV Inputs: The module accepts X and Y axis inputs. By using out of phase LFO sources (such as outputs from the Dr. Octature) users can create really interesting swirling/circular patterns
  • Reversible – ships with a second faceplate that is designed to be mounted upside down (so the joystick is at the bottom) and there are jumpers on the back of the module so users can coordinate the reversed orientation of the joystick (to facilitate use in a skiff)
