Zorx 1U CV Bus


***NOTE: All Zorx 1U products follow the Intellijel 1U size format (see note below if using Intellijel case) of 39.65mm high. The circuit board for the 1U CV Bus is 25mm so make sure your 1U space measures at least that amount.

The Zorx 1U CV Bus is an 84 HP 4 - 1 x 4 or 2 - 1 X 8 buffered mult with attenuation/attenuverting on each output for use with audio and CV signals.

There are four channels, each with four dedicated outputs, separated into groups of four. 4X4X4. Input a signal into any channel and use that channel’s outputs to spread the input signal throughout your rig. With outputs spread out in this manner, it inspires creative modulation and patching.

Channel 1’s input is normalled into Channel 2’s input for use as a 1x8 mult. Likewise, Channel 3’s input is normalled into Channel 4’s input for use as a 1x8 mult. When nothing is patched into Channels 1 and 3,+5V is fed into each input for use as an offset throughout their respective channels with a peak to peak voltage of -5V to +5V available at each output.

Each output has attenuator/attenuverter potentiometer control. Center position is off - no signal at the output. These outputs are buffered so that with one input you can have four separate and different variations of the input signal at each of its corresponding outputs.

See-thru color coded LED indicators denote which channel an output belongs to for easy maneuvering during live performance and in dimly lit situations, and there are also numbered dots below each potentiometer that denote that as well.

The Zorx 1U CV Bus uses +12V 90 mA and -12V 90mA, and doesn’t need a +5V rail to operate. It has a depth of 27mm. The faceplate is black matte with copper.

The 20 HP Zorx SILENCER 1U CV BUS Expander is also available to buddy up with the 1U CV Bus.

*Please Note:
The Zorx 1U CV Bus easily fits in most 1U cases (Intellijel cases, Needham Woodworks, cases using Vector rails and more work well), but some cases can be a tight fit for the 1U CV Bus if they use thick rails. If necessary, try loosening the 4 x 1U rail screws (2 on each side) on the side of the case to loosen the rails a little, and then insert the CV Bus into the 1U rail slot. You might need to squeeze the 1U rails together slightly and move the threaded inserts to get the holes lined up for all eight holes on the 1U CV Bus, but this should allow you to get the CV Bus in place so you can screw it in and secure it. After, just re-tighten the 1U rail screws.

The Zorx 1U SILENCER is a clickless 20 HP 4 channel performance silencing module that lets you manually switch each channel on and off, thereby muting it, with latching or momentarily capabilities. There is also a MIX OUT that sums all of the SILENCER's outputs into a single mono output. A connector cable [included] can be connected from the rear of the Zorx 1U CV Bus to the rear of the SILENCER which will take the last four outputs of the Zorx 1U CV Bus and duplicate them, normalling them to the corresponding inputs of the SILENCER. This normalization can be overridden by patching an input into each channel so that the SILENCER can act on its own or in tandem with the Zorx 1U CV Bus, or a combination of the two. Illuminated numbered dots correspond to the 4 channels of the 1U CV Bus for easy recognition.

The SILENCER can be used as a 4-channel on/off/(on) performance switch, a 3-channel audio or CV mixer (Channel 3 is left out of the mix), or a combination of the two.

The SILENCER consumes +12V 40mA and -12V 40mA and has a depth of 40mm.
