Manufacturer Description:
blinds is a 4-channel voltage-controlled signal polarizer. each channel consists of a polarizer circuit, also known as a four-quadrant multiplier. this circuit acts like a vca, except that a negative control voltage will cause the output signal to be inverted, instead of being silenced. blinds' outputs are daisy-chained, allowing adjacent groups of 2, 3, or all 4 channels, to be mixed together.

one can think of blinds' as a voltage-controlled version of shades, the control center for all the modulation cvs used in a patch. many other uses are possible, though. for example, each individual channel can be used to scale/offset a cv; and with audio rate modulation signals, each channel acts like a ring-modulator, with massive potential for drones and feedback patches.

all inputs dc-coupled.
all inputs handle audio-rate signals.
input impedance: 100k for all inputs.
cv offset range: +/- 5v.
gain scale: linear, a +5v cv translates to a gain of 1.
gain range: +/- 2.
current consumption: +12v: 70ma ; -12v: 70ma.
open-source hardware.
