Cool beans hyena!

Anyway to make a dedicated fire button? That way you can punch in and out of chopp mode while always maintaining the clock sync?

hmmm nice idea! but how you’d implement that? elaborate :slight_smile:

just to add some context:
this unit uses a track and hold unit, the same can be done(maybe more easily) with a simple vca and a pulse wave but this came out of a topic in which i was explaining how to use s&h and t&h to decimate audio…

You could insert a mixer, with vcas for both dry and wet signal (I guess you’d need a mixer for each inside your mixer?). send a gate that opens wet vca and invert it for dry vca. I did something similar to this in the past but I cannot remember exactly what I did, it was along those lines though. So in this case, the effect would always be on, but you would only hear it when sending a gate. This does however require an external signal and not just a fire button included in the unit on the 301.
