New flight of harmony Facehugger Eurorack Module on Kickstarter

via Kickstarter

"Introducing the Facehugger:

An all-analog, addressable, non-linear, 8-stage, chainable, function generator and control module for eurorack modular synthesizer systems.

What the hell does that mean?

It outputs up to eight different control voltage levels (levels set by the LED sliders) in a sequence determined by a control signal. Depending on how you use it, it can be a:

Control Voltage (CV) Sequencer
Gate Sequencer
Arpeggio Generator
Envelope Generator
Burst Generator
Low Frequency Oscillator (LFO)
Some very basic uses:

Connect it to the CV input of an oscillator to change the pitch
Connect it to the CV input of a voltage-controlled amplifier (VCA) to change the amplitude of a signal.

The Facehugger is unclocked, using an internal ramp generator to control the cycling, or you can use any external 0-+5V waveform instead. The Sequence order is determined by amplitude and slope of the driving waveform: if it is linear, the stages will trigger linearly (in order), incrementing with a rising signal, and decrementing with a falling signal. With a non-linear drive signal (like a stepped, or staircase wave), the stages will trigger non-linearly based on the same parameters.

Multiple units can be chained together for longer patterns or for synchronizing to generate chords via a rear chaining header.

The rear Ramp out pin can be used as a synch oscillator, or even - when using an external drive waveform - as a separate, fully-controllable LFO with adjustable curvature.

The Facehugger also has a rear expansion header for a separate expander module that provides individual level out jacks, individual gate out jacks, a master Gate in jack, and a ramp out jack (see Expander Milestone below for details)."
