SIDE-CHAIN / LINKING OPTIONS
Below you will find a block diagram of
the proposed side-chain and linking options for the SL-1176-KIT.
For reference, we will post both the original 1176 "design" as well as
the 1178 version. When linked, the primary goal is to have
one MASTER channel that is responding to a sum of both signals. The
most simple execution would be to sum the audio signals before the side
chain and have ONE sidechain circuit drive both FETs.
We also propose DC summing of the Control
Voltage (CV) to allow greater flexibility and possibly more options.
If the audio summed sidechain saw two signals - one out-of-phase with the
other - it would generate much less Control Voltage (CV) than if
the DC CV were summed.
In addition, we plan to have side chain
inputs for ducking and EQ.
