Doepfer A-174-1, Joy Stick, outputs 2 control voltages generated by a spring-loaded X/Y cross potentiometer (so-called joy stick). For each output the voltage offset (zero setting) can be adjusted. Each output is equipped with 2 LEDs for positive/negative display of the output voltages. If the spring is removed for one direction the joy stick is no longer spring-loaded for this direction (as the spring is destroyed when removed this cannot be re-established !). We use a high quality joy stick made by ALPS in the A-174
This is a simple joystick but also much more economical than much of the competition. The built-in offset controls mean you can find the perfect centre point of your control without the need for any additional offset/attenuators.
As with all things modular the possibilities are almost endless - send the CV to filter cutoff, LFO rate, phase shift, oscillator pitch, pulse width, effect send, etc... I like to send the two CVs to two aspects of wave multiplier for some interesting real time control.
My top tip: put the output CVs through multiples and control filters and amps and allsorts simultaneously for some seriously dynamic control of your sounds.
Good basic joystick module and two bipolar DC source pots. The knob has 3M inner thread and seems to be easily interchangeable.
Module is overall well built but the two separate potentiometers are hard to move together diagonally unless you rest your hand firmly on the case. Crossing smoothly over the resting point of the spring loaded levers is hardest. If you need to play live for longer times I guess some other joystick module might be better or removing the springs from this. Doepfer has notes for this on their website, read them.
ADSR Envelope Generator The module A-140 is a envelope generator and since it delivers control voltages, belongs to the modulation-modules. As soon as the ADSR is triggered at gate-input, it...
