Three essential functions
- The 1:3 section is a buffered multiple, allowing a note CV to be distributed to up to 3 VCOs without voltage drop.
- The 2:2 section is a 2-input summer with unity gains (also known as a precision adder). The sum of the two input channels is distributed to 2 outputs.
- The 3:1 section is a 3-input mixer, with a gain of 1/3 per channel (also known as an averager). It is particularly suitable for rapidly mixing audio sources such as oscillators, for which a unity gain mixer would have caused clipping.
- Input impedance: 1M for the buffered multiple, 100k for the mixers.
- Buffered multiple with low offset error.
- 0.1% resistors, allowing the 2:2 section to work as a precision adder.
- All inputs DC-coupled.
- Audio-rate signals accepted.
Revisions and variants
Following an initial batch of 250 modules manufactured by PCBCart in China, the production of Links moved to France where every other module was being made.
Hardware revision labelled "v4" with the following differences:
- Green PCB (originally white).
- Thonkiconn jacks.
- SMT Components soldered on the same side as the jacks (not exposed on the back of the module).
