http://endorphin.es https://www.facebook.com/theendorphines Endorphin.es – Cockpit ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ Ready for take-off! ✈ - 6 HP width, up to 1 1/2“ in depth – super slim and SHUTTLE friendly Cockpit is a 4stereo channels performance mixer. Designed to connect altogether iPad, drum machine, synthesizers, mp3 player and any studio equipment to be mixed with modular gear. You can connect any line-level or modular, stereo or mono sources in any of 4 channels. With the jumpers on the backside, you can define whether the channel is stereo or mono. Black knobs act as faders with endless rotation. Clockwise rotation increases channel's volume. Counterclockwise rotation decreases volume. The LED near each knob shows by its brightness how high the volume is. When the LED is green the channel is ON. By the short press of black knob, the appropriate channel becomes immediately muted, and LED becomes red. You can adjust the volume even when the channel is muted, by rotating the knob and looking at the brightness of LED. The volumes of all channels are stored when you turn off the power of your modular. Channels 1 and 2 are ordinary stereo channels. Channels 3 and 4 are identical to 1 and 2, how-ever can also accept 4 pin TRRS cables. That cable is supplied with Cockpit to be used with Apple IOS devices to utilize IPad or iPhone as effect processor with the audio feed into external microphone input. So far input of channel 2 is sent into the microphone input of channel 4 and channel 1 is sent to channel 3, as written on the panel. For example, we have a raw sequence from Grand Terminal at channel 1, and IPad connected with TRRS cable into channel 3. You can use any inter audio-app or plug-in effect for IPad to process the sound from channel 1. Channel 1 knob will act as a dry level of the original signal. Channel 3 knob will act as a wet level of the effect. The blue knob is a final output volume of corresponding output stereo jack. From that output, you can record your mix into the sound card or camera, as well as connect headphones or PA monitors. Cockpit has a built-in ducking compressor There are three compressor modes. On module’s power up you may notice how many times blue LED will blink. Amount of blinks defines the number of the mode. You can change the mode by press and hold four black knobs for one second simultaneously. Red Knob controls compressor parameters depending on the mode. I. In the first mode, side chain jack accepts positive cv from 0 to +5 volts, the best example output from the envelope. Pressing the black knob for 1 second enables compressor control on that channel. Afterwards, you will see short blinking LED, that means that channel is controlled by a side chain. The more you apply CV, the more channel volume drops with the ratio defined by the red knob. That feature is widely used at radio stations and afterward intentionally in techno music to bring so called "pumping". Here we have the same sequence plays from Grand Terminal on channel 1 and drums play on channel 3. We use the MIDI clock from the drum-machine, divided by Shuttle Control on 24, so the clock matches with the kick drum. Kick drum plays simple four on the floor beat. Then clock triggers the envelope| and the output of the envelope is applied into the side chain cv. The attack is set to the minimal amount. We tweak blue decay and red compressor knobs to obtain the pumping on channel 1 Long hold on channel 1 knob disables that amplitude pumping. II. The second mode is essentially the same as a first one. The only difference is that the side chain cv input accepts 1-volt peak-to-peak line-level audio with envelope follower enabled. And channel's volume can be controlled by applying, for example, bass or snare drums. III. The third mode is different from two previous because side chain cv accepts clock. You can also apply any trigger from drum-machine, for example, rimshot output from Roland TR-09. Under incoming clock, Cockpit generates falling ramp signal with zero attacks. Red knob defines the decay time of that envelope. We set ducking amount for every channel separately by pressing and turning the corresponding black knob. When you hold that knob for long LED becomes orange, and brightness of that orange LED shows you amount of ducking applied.
