The Garden Listener is our very first eurorack module. It detects conductivity variations on living beings’ surface and transforms them into MIDI notes, ranging from C-1 to C8, and CV signals (0 – 5V). Its behavior can be tamed through the one-knob menu from which you can choose and modify:
- probes’ sensitivity (making it more or less sensitive to current variations);
- scale (chromatic, major, minor, indian and arabic);
- MIDI channel (from 1 up to 16);
- LEDs’ brightness.
It generates trigger, gate, and CV (1V/oct). The CV output behavior can be modified via an octave selector which acts as a “CV equalizer” from which you can choose to generate CV only if the respective MIDI note lies within a certain octave range.
The MIDI output allows you to take advantage of the sound of either any synthesizer equipped with a MIDI port or any VST in your DAW.
For once, leave that LFO alone, and let any living conductive being modulate your signals.
The module comes with 3.5mm white probes and a set of snap-on adhesive reusable electrode pads. A MIDI-TRS type A adapter (not included) is required for the MIDI output.
