QUADNIC reps. our 2nd colloboration with SpaceHardware—a deeply featured 12hp module with four digital oscillators—each with a selection of 64 waveforms, 7 different processing modes including phase distortion and wave sequencing, and a dedicated volt per octave input. In unison mode, all 4 OSCs can be played via the 1st 1V/O input, by 1V/O inputs 1-4, and widely detuned, or switched to a preset chord formation—a major move beyond the 'one note samba' monophonic, module choreography we all know and mainly love, but... scooch over Grainy, Quadnic is cookin' up digi-vittles for four. "Come 'n' git it!" and stay in record: the Quadnic is non-programmable; when the power recycles, the Quad defaults to voice 1 active with current pot positions. All edits are live; all edits are volatile. Exciting. Always fresh.

The Four Oscillator Structure image gets one into the weeds of the sound; if you prefer a purely horizontally oriented vector/text-based V2 pdf, or view the V1 Designers' Tutorial Video.

Aliens in the Amazon (a Tom Oberheim/TVS Pro team-up) is definitely worth a listen...

Quadnic Version 2 pdfs outline the expressive 12-2-16 features—thanks Bastl Instruments for the dramatic Master Mode functionality/expansion suggestions, which we had the good sense to implement near immediately. Control of all the OSCs parameters globally without sacrificing individual CV control is now a reality: essentially a sensible polyphonic mode with individual CV control. Previous OS Master Modes used only OSC 1 as the controlling CV—the additional mode uses all 4 controlling CVs. Changing stronger together.

Master Matters
• With MASTER mode switched on, the oscillator responds to it's own CV input.
• Oscillators 2 to 4: If Master LED is not lit, the oscillator responds to CV 1, with the pitch control adding +/-1 octave offset.
• Oscillator 1 always responds to CV input; the other oscillators follow CV 1 if they are not set to Master.
• When all 4 oscillator switches/lights are selected, the Quadnic is in unison mode and all oscillators follow CV 1; the front panel control affects all 4 oscillators.
• To get all oscillators to same pitch, adjust the Pitch and Fine controls.
• To get all oscillators to play the same sound (they are quite independent), adjust all controls.
• All 4 OSC lights on, with Master selected or flashing: unison can detune massively up to 4 octaves.
• All 4 OSC lights on, with master not selected: unison and Chord produce chords.


Osc Select
Osc 1 --> Osc 2 --> Osc 3 --> Osc 4 --> All Oscs
Selects the oscillator to be edited from the front panel.
Master <--> Slave
Selects Master or Slave mode—when Master buton is not selected—for Osc 2, 3 or 4. Osc 1 is always in Master mode (Slave label is not shown).
With Master selected: 
The pitch of Osc 1, 2, 3 or 4 is controlled by Pitch.
With Slave selected: 
The pitch of Oscillator 2, 3 or 4 is controlled by Osc 1 pitch. In Slave mode, Pitch detunes Osc 2, 3 or 4 by +/- one octave.
Master: Fine pitch control.
With All Oscs and Master mode selected: 
Detunes Osc 1 from 0 to +1 octave;
Detunes Osc 2 from 0 to -1 octave;
Detunes Osc 3 from 0 to +2 octaves;
Detunes Osc 4 from 0 to -2 octaves;

With All Oscs and Slave mode selected: 
From fully anticlockwise to fully clockwise:

No effect;
1 octave between oscillators;
Octaves and 5ths;
Major chord;
Minor chord;
Dominant 7th;
Minor 7th;
Major 6th;
Selects one of the 16 waveforms from the current Bank.
Selects one of 4 banks of 16 waveforms.
Process Mode:
The processing mode for each oscillator.
No effect
2x Add
Adds a copy of the signal from the oscillator and detunes it using the Process control.
2x Mul
Copies the signal from the oscillator and uses it to modulate the amplitude of the original signal. The Process control also detunes the copied signal.
2x PM1
Modulates the phase of the oscillator output with a triangle wave. Process controls the frequency of the modulating wave.
2x PM2
Modulates the phase of the oscillator output with a complex waveform. Process controls the frequency of the modulating wave.
W Seq
Wave Sequencing. Steps through all 64 available waveforms. Process controls the rate of wave sequencing.
Sync 1
Phase distortion changing the shape of the oscillator signal, and producing a mild sync effect.
Sync 2
Phase distortion producing a dramatic sync effect.
Operation depends on the Process Mode selected. 
See Process Mode for descriptions.
Process CV:
Attenuverter applying the Proc CV input to the selected oscillator.
The centre position is no CV applied; fully to the left is inverted CV; fully to the right it non-inverted CV.
Volume/Drive for the selected oscillator.
Fully to the left is no output; centre is full volume; fully to the right is further amplification with hard clipping.

Inputs and Outputs
1V/OCT 1 - Oscillator 1, 1 Volt per octave input. 0-10V input range. Controls the pitch of any other oscillator that is set to Slave mode.
1V/OCT 2 - Oscillator 2, 1 Volt per octave input. 0-10V input range. Only affects oscillator 2 when in Master mode.
1V/OCT 3 - Oscillator 3, 1 Volt per octave input. 0-10V input range. Only affects oscillator 3 when in Master mode.
1V/OCT 4 - Oscillator 4, 1 Volt per octave input. 0-10V input range. Only affects oscillator 4 when in Master mode.
Proc CV - Process CV input. +/-5V input range. One CV input for all oscillators, but can be attenuated for individual oscillators using the Process CV control.
Out 1 - Oscillator 1 output.
Out 2 - Oscillator 2 output.
Out 3 - Oscillator 3 output.
Out 4 - Oscillator 4 output.
