Ok, but with issues

This may or may NOT be your next favourite modulation module. Reading this you have been warned!
Featurewise it's a very attractive module. Two AR/LFOs in 10 HP is nice! The handling does suffer from the ammount of functionality though. When you switch channels there are no indications as to where the sliders should be to pick up recently set values. And the scales are not linear, so it's a bit tricky to dial in exactly the time you want.
Combining AR with LFO may seem as a good idea, and in some cases it may be. But the LFOs are true LFOs, meaning they output -/+ voltage, unlike AR/ADSR that output only + voltage. So you can't actually cycle an AR envelope if that's what you want, like with the Make Noise Function or Maths or similar designs.

A serious problem with the module is that the trigger inputs seem to draw a lot of current. When multing to another module in my system, there was not enough juice to trigger both of them. It could probably be solved with a buffered mult, but I don't want to wast one on a simple task like this.
Lastly, I noticed that when cycling power, one of the channels had lost it's settings. Could of course be something wrong with my unit, but due to above mentioned issues I wont give it a second try. It goes back - sorry Thomann.

Lo mejor de este módulo es que tienes dos canales para aplicar envolvente, modulación o LFO, pudiendo aplicar dos fuentes diferentes de voltaje, lo cual ahorra espacio. Para ser un módulo pequeño en tamaño es generoso en funciones, aunque es necesario leer el manual para poder llegar al fondo de sus características. Su relación calidad-precio es sobresaliente, siendo de las envolventes más baratas que se pueden encontrar, como, en realidad, ocurre con todos los módulos de Dreadbox.

Bon module

Bon module, pas cher. Mais pas tres pratique d'utilisation au vue des placements des cables de patch et de la taille des fader.

Wszystko działa jak trzeba. Łatwy w obsłudze. Można uzyskać ciekawe kształty trochę inne od standardowych lfo.
