Instruo Scíon - Biofeedback Sensor Random Voltage Generator

Scíon | 'sAien | noun (biology) young shoot or stem useful for sprouting or forming new roots, a descendent of a notable family

The Instruo Scíon is a biofeedback sensor built into a random voltage generator.

Based on the MidiSprout by Datagrarden, it translates biodata from plants and other living things into music.


•           3.5mm input jack for tens cable

•           Two sets of sensor cables featuring sticky electrode pads or soft clips

•           Gold touch plate for direct interface with bio-feedback

•           Four 0-5V CV outputs with independent attenuators and slew controls

•           Four Gate outputs

•           Four Gate inputs for triggering ratcheted subdivisions or S&H style clocking

•           Four Hold buttons to freeze each channels current state

•           CV controllable SENSITIVITY (0-5V range)

•           CV controllable note DENSITY (0-5V range)

Derived from the MidiSprout by Datagarden, the Scíon is tailored for use within a eurorack environment. Additional functionality and control parameters have been added to make it a flexible and multi-use instrument able to fulfil a wide range of roles within a patch.

Generative Patching

Let your plants do the playing. Utilise the Scíon at the heart of your patch and listen to what your plants have to say.

Harmonic Flourishes

Choose from the natural harmonic series or cycle of 4ths and let the Scíon add harmonic interest to your patch.

Natural Timing

Randomness is an essential too for adding interest to any patch. The Scíon can be used to provide four channels of randon CV and gate outputs.

Not random enough? Bursts of ratcheting gates at randomly timed subdivisions can be triggered.

Too random? Use external CV control and timing information to the the beast.

Interactive Performance

It's not just plants, hook yourself up to your modular system for direct interactive control over your patch.
