With the same compact 4-HP size as its vanilla friend Links, Kinks provides three analog utility functions for altering the shape of audio or control signals.
The Sign section consists of a precision signal inverter, and half- and full- wave rectifiers (which respectively clips to 0V, and inverts the negative half of the signal). They can help in creating new LFO shapes, add overtones to audio signals or even transform CV melodies.
In the Logic section, the analog OR-gate outputs the maximum of two signals: not only does it merge two streams of triggers/gates like its digital counterparts, but it can also hybridizes LFOs, envelopes or even audio signals – creating the same type of inharmonic side-bands as ring-modulators. The analog AND-gate outputs the minimum of the two signal. With it you can mute/un-mute a stream of triggers with another gate, or explore other shades of audio and CV mangling.
The Sample and Hold section is a no-nonsense implementation of a classic synthesizer circuit… On each trigger received on the TRIG input, the output voltage takes the value of the input voltage and holds this voltage. The signal input IN is normalized to a white noise generator – to easily generate stepped random values. The white noise signal is also available through the NOISE output jack.
