The Q182TS is a dual-axis ThumbStick Controller like that found on many popular video game systems.
Two voltages are created, one for each axis of the ThumbStick, along with a Switch Gate when the ThumbStick is pressed.
The ThumbStick returns to center when released.
Perfect for pitch-bending, filter control and sequencer triggering.
The Q182TS is a double-space module so it can be mounted anywhere in a system or in a
Box cabinet next to your keyboard and other controllers.
The ThumbStick Controller uses our standardized Q182 dual-channel controller interface module providing an Auto Gate, Switch Gate and a voltage output preset switch for each axis.
Voltage Output Presets
A voltage output is created for each axis as the ThumbStick Controller is moved.
The range of each voltage is controlled by the Output Range Preset switches to select 5 volts, 2 volts or 4/12ths volt.
Use the 4/12ths volt position for +/-2 semitones of pitch bend.
For modulation, use the 5 volt position then attenuate or invert the signal at the destination module.
Auto Gate
An Auto Gate signal is created for each axis as they are moved.
The position at which these Gates are produced is set with the Auto Gate control knobs.
These Gates can be used to start Sequencers, trigger Envelope Generators or to change parameters in the system.
Switch Gate
A Switch Gate is created when the ThumbStick is pressed.
This is just like any other Gate and can be used to control Sequencers, Envelope Generators, etc.
The Switch Gate can also be activated manually with the panel button.
