A-182-4 Dual Rotary Switches
Doepfer A-182-4 - Dual Rotary Switches
The A-182-4 is a simple passive module that contains two mechanical rotary switches with 4 positions each. According to the position of the control knob socket 1, 2, 3 or 4 is connected to the common socket C. As the module is fully passive it works bidirectional, ie the sockets 1 through 4 can be inputs and then C is the output. The other way round C can be the input and sockets 1 through 4 are the outputs.
By means of an internal jumper the terminals C of both switches can be connected. That way the module can be used as a kind of miniature 4x4 matrix. Rotary switch A is eg. used to select one of the four sockets 1 through 4 and this signal is sent to one of the four sockets 1 through 4 of switch B.
• Switching of audio or control signals in the modular system without the need to unplug and plug patch cables (ie no signal interruption)
• Building a small 4x4 miniature switch matrix
