This video explores using the EP-3 expression pedal to add additional pulse width control to the oscillator section of the Matriarch.
One of the advantages offered by semi-modularity is the ability to add further controls to your instrument via CV inputs and offset voltages. You may have noticed that Matriarch’s oscillators lack a dedicated pulse-width knob, but do feature a pulse-width voltage input; this creates an opportunity to add a pulse-width knob via creative patching. Using a combination of Matriarch’s expression pedal input, mults, and a reversible attenuator, we can control the pulse-width of all four oscillators simultaneously using EP-3. Another approach could be to use the expression pedal input and each of the three reversible attenuators separately to gain independent manual control over each oscillator’s pulse-width. The beauty of semi-modularity is the ability to cater your instrument’s functionality to meet the needs of your performance or recording.
