Attenuators are very useful modules on every system. Taking control over the amplitude and polarity of the signals becomes necessary when we want to have full control over our sounds.
Asset has been designed with compact systems in mind. Is small enough to not take much space on the rack but also powerful, providing six channels with individual controls over each circuit parameter. Some design decisions make Asset a different approach from the classical “Attenuverter” circuits:
The pots work in a classical unipolar way, allowing to shut down the signal completely as you don’t need to deal with its center position. It also gives you more precision as the whole range of the pot is used either to attenuate or invert, not both.
Having manual switches to either invert the signal and the offset is useful when we just want to invert the signal, keeping its original amplitude intact.
Input chaining adds tons of flexibility to the patch allowing the use of the same signal multiple times in different ways. A perfect functionality to use on generative or polyphonic patches.
