OFFSET x6 | BUILD INSTRUCTIONS
This build is a intermediate level build with quite a bit of surface mount components. However, this is a good project to get into surface mount components, and an otherwise simple build.
Do this before building this module:
- Check that you have all components.
- Gather all the tools needed (see lists below).
The tools needed for this build are:
- Soldering station or soldering iron.
- High quality solder (lead free recommended).
- Fine tipped side cutters.
- Round-nosed pliers (for bending component legs).
- Angled tweezers for surface mounting.
- PCB holder (makes life much easier).
- Knurled Nut Driver Tool (for tightening jack socket nuts).

5. Jacks sockets and potentiometers
6. Powering up and testing
Connect a 10-pin eurorack power cable to the power socket and attach the module in your eurorack case. Connect a signal to one of the inputs (for instance a sine wave from an LFO) and feed the corresponding output to a module (for instance the FM input on a VCO to make a vibrato). Set the potentiometer to 12 o’clock. The signal from the LFO should pass through the OFFSET channel more or less unaltered. Increase the offset level and the pitch of the vibrato should increase with it. Decrease the level the pitch should decrease with it.
