description / manual

In order to easily tweak and change the sounds there are four main potentiometers that will change Timbre, Harmonics, Morph and Variant, which is any possible mixture of OUT and AUX. Freq has been put onto a small trimmer potentiometer to avoid any accidental change in pitch. On the bottom of the panel you will find all necessary jacks to control Pyxis via CV. Timbre, Morph and Freq have dedicated attenuverters to adjust the incoming CV signals.

Yeah…but…where are the LEDs?

Instead of always directly jumping to chord mode and watching the LEDs change, isn‘t it much better to listen and trust your ears to choose the right sound? Tweak the four potentiometers, change the program with the two buttons (Sound and Percussion Mode) and listen to the wide range of sounds Pyxis is able to generate. Let yourself be surprised what is hidden behind the programs you would usually not choose following the LED indicators.
