Just as modular synthesizers such as the Korg MS Series, the iDS10 provides a PATCH Panel for connecting various modulation sources to various destinations through the use of patch cords. Simply touch on one of the Source jacks and drag your finger to one of the Destination jacks to create a virtual patch cord.
MODULATION DESTINATION JACKS
Each of the Patch Panel modulation destination jacks is equipped with an attenuating input, so you can use the knob to control just how much signal is being received. The Modulation destinations are:
VCO Pitch IN Controls the Pitch of both Oscillators
VCO1 Pitch IN Controls the Pitch of VCO1
VCO2 Pitch IN Controls the Pitch of VCO2
VCO1 PWM IN Controls the Pulse Width of VCO1 when the Square Wave Form has been selected.
CUTOFF IN Controls the Filter Cutoff Frequency
VCA IN Controls the Level of the VCA
MODULATION SOURCE JACKS
The Modulation Generator (MG) is often referred to as the LFO, or Low-Frequency Oscillator. Depending on its destination, the MG can provide vibrato (PITCH); Tremolo (VCA); or Wah-Wah (Filter) effects. In addition to the four wave forms provided by the MG, the EG and VCO2 can also be used as modulation sources.
TRI Modulation Generator (MG) Triangle Wave
SAW Modulation Generator (MG) Sawtooth Wave
SQUARE Modulation Generator (MG) Square Wave
S & H (Sample & Hold) Modulation Generator (MG) Random Waveform
EG The Time-variable control signal created by the EG can be used as a modulation source
VCO2 The output of Oscillator 2 can be used as a modulation source
