It's here: the SynQuaNon Hex Bypass has successfully passed testing and is ready for production.
The module consists of 6 individual true bypass channels using high-quality miniature audio relays.
Each channel can be triggered (bypassed) via a lighted pushbutton switch on the front panel, as well as a CV (0-5V positive) pulse via front panel jacks or via the SynQuaNon CV Bus on the rear (front jacks are normalized to the rear connections).
Just about any CV waveform can be used to modulate the channel bypass, creating a range of interesting possibilities with "effects rhythms". Exciting!
A Master Bypass pushbutton switch, along with Master CV input jack on front panel and a 7th channel on the SynQuaNon CV Bus will invert all 6 channel states; in other words, one can use it as a Master Bypass (with for example a foot switch, just like ordinary guitar pedals) or to switch between two different 6-channel bypass patterns. Add some modulation and stand back for some incredible effects!
The back of the module features SynQuaNon Audio Bus connectors for Bypass In, Bypass Thru, Bypass Out, as well as Effect In and Effect Out. As mentioned above, a SynQuaNon CV Bus connector introduces CV inputs for Channels 1-6 and Master. Having these standardized rear bus connections is fantastic: they eliminate 37 patch cables and allow for zero clutter on the front panel.
The SynQuaNon Hex Bypass will work with any SynQuaNon module (e.g. Hex Fuzz, 7-Channel Amplifier, Hex VCF, Hex VCA, as well as future effects modules), converting them into "Eurorack Stomp Boxes" by using foot switches.
