|The Ribbon 2 is a tactile instrument which is sensitive to position and pressure. It is interchangeably a 12 -bit synth, a USB controller and CV/Gate controller, it can be used in many different ways - as a solo instrument, to control virtual instruments and iOS or to control analog/modular systems and other CV/gate devices. The Ribbon comes with a software editor, which allows you to choose from 9 oscillator sources, LFO and FM modulation and delay and downsampling effects. 16 Presets can be stored and recalled on the fly using the two buttons on the Ribbon
The Ribbon is powered over a USB port, either by your computer or a wall wart. In synthesizer mode, it sends mono audio from the 3.5mm output
In CV/Gate mode, which can be stored as a preset using the editor, the 3.5mm output is set to send pitch on the tip and gate on the ring. Using a split stereo cable you can patch these into your analog synthesizer or modular synthesizer.

||As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key.
||Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.
|Values for OSC, LFO, Filter, Envelope are per voice unless stated otherwise.
