I am a eurorack user interested in having a module that would take a CV input and output the derivative of the signal as a CV output. I wasn’t able to find anything that seems to do that, and so this evening I’ve gone down the rabbit hole of seeing if I might be able to DIY it. I have solid software skills (Python and R mainly for data analysis, but some C++ as well) but little to no hardware/electronics skills, and from what I have found tonight I think that the Patch/seed or Patch.Init()/submodule would be the best platform to use for me.
I remain unclear on the relevant differences between these two products. One thing I notice is that the Patch has 2 clearly labeled CV out jacks, whereas the Patch.Init() has 1 jack labeled CV_OUT_1, but then the area labeled CV_OUT_2 is an LED, so I would seemingly not actually be able to use the second CV out, which seems unfortunate to me. For this reason alone I would consider spending the extra $135 for the full-sized Patch.
Obviously if I spring for this purchase I might end up tinkering with things beyond the simple functionality I am interested in implementing right now, so I would appreciate any further info on the distinctions between the 2 products. I have dug around on this forum and I understand that the seed is the older, more established product, and that the submodule was introduced last year, but I haven’t found anything that really drove home to me the ‘purpose’ of the submodule as opposed to the seed.
