Multiphonics CV-2 Manual

Version 2.2.0

Output Mixer

  1. Channel Level Knobs Sets the volume of each channel.
  2. Channel Pan Knobs Sets the position of each channel in the stereo field.
  3. Channel Inputs Inputs for the signals that will be played by Multiphonics CV‑2.
  4. Output Volume Knob Adjusts the output volume. From -∞dB to +12dB, centered at 0dB (double-click).
  5. Limiter Switch Enables or disables the built-in peak limiter.
  6. Delay Knob Adjusts the amount of audio signal sent to the built-in delay effect.
  7. Reverb Knob Adjusts the amount of audio signal sent to the built-in reverb effect.
  8. Dry/Wet Knob (effect plug-in only) adjusts the ratio between the input signal (dry) and processed signal (wet) played on the output.
  9. Curve Selector (effect plug-in only) Changes the dry/wet curve.


Routes up to four audio signals from the patch to the DAW or to the audio interface.

The Output module is always present in the top row and cannot be removed. The patch will not produce any sound unless an audio signal is connected into one of the channel inputs.

The Dry/Wet and Curve settings are only available in the Multiphonics CV‑2 Effect plug-in.

The Output module is fully automatable when Multiphonics CV‑2 is used as a plug-in in a DAW.



The first half of the module is the output mixer. Up to four audio signals can be connected, each with its own volume and pan knobs.

When connecting a stereo module to a pair of channels, don’t forget to pan the channels hard-left and hard-right to preserve the stereo information, as shown in the following patch.

If you want to hear more than four channels, use the Stereo Mix 5 module and connect its outputs to two channels panned hard-left and hard-right. With two mixers connected this way, you can get 10 stereo channels.


The Output knob adjusts the overall output volume.


Activate the built-in peak limiter with the Limiter switch to prevent louder sounds from clipping.

Without the limiter, any signal above 25V or below -25V will be clipped, which can cause glitches or harsh distortion. To reduce the risk of clipping, try adjusting the output level to the 0dB mark in the level meter on the toolbar.


The Delay and Reverb knobs adjust the amount of audio signal sent to the built-in Delay and Reverb modules, which are found in the Effects panel, accessed from the toolbar with the View→Effects menu. Please refer to the Delay (Output Effect) and Reverb (Output Effect) documentation for more information on these modules.

The Delay and Reverb effects are processed in parallel. The post-volume signal is sent to these effects, so it’s not possible to only hear the delay or reverb signals.


When using Multiphonics CV‑2 as an audio effect plug-in, the Output module has a dry/wet balance setting. This saves you from patching your own dry/wet with a Crossfader in effects where this feature is useful.

The dry signal is taken from the Input module (post-volume), while wet signal is the output mix (post-effect).

The Curve selector sets the volume curve of the dry and wet signals. From left to right, the curves are:

  • Linear (-6 dB center): well suited for distortion, equalizing, tremolo, and any effect where there is a strong correlation between the frequency content and phase of the inputs and outputs.

  • Constant Power (-3 dB center): ideal for effects with continuous modulations like chorus, flanger, phaser, filter sweeps or wah wah.

  • Full-scale (0 dB center): when dry/wet is centered, both signals play at full scale. Best for any effect that needs to be added to the dry signal without lowering the dry level, like reverbs or delays.

When in doubt as to which curve is best, set it to constant power (second curve) and slowly turn the Dry/Wet knob from fully dry to fully wet. If you hear a volume swell in the middle, try the linear curve (left). If you hear a volume drop in the middle, try the full-scale curve (third).
