Teia Synthesizers Stochastic Function Generator plus Expander

Teia Sythesizers is another new Eurorack manufacturer from Portugal.
Earlier this month they announced their first products, the Stochastic Function Generator and the SFG Expander.

" The basic concept is, every time you feed a gate/trigger to the "Gate in" input the module randomizes a Rise(Attack) and Fall(Decay) value between the minimum and maximum knob settings.
It has multiple uses, from playing subtle swing variations to crazy envelope shapes. 

Teia Synthesizers Stochastic Function Generator
plus Expander
Setting the Maximum knob value below the Minimum knob value will cancel the stochastic process and it will work as a regular Attack and Decay envelope.

This is an hybrid circuit, this means the Function Generator (AKA Envelope Generator) core is analog and there is also a micro-controller to spice things up.
Features overview:
-Random Rise and Fall determined by Maximum and Minimum knobs.
-Maximum knob value below the Minimum knob value module works as regular envelope generator.
-Switchable between Gate and Trigger.
-Loop mode(LFO mode).
-Gate Out proportional to the length of the Rise portion of the envelope.
- Inverter and attenuater control knob.
-Extra Bipolar output.
- Three speed modes, High , Mid and Low. Jumpers to change speed modes from Low to Super Low mode and High to Super High

Expansion Features:
Cv control over All Maximum and Minimum settings.
Gate input to activate/ deactivate loop mode.
CV output with the resulting random voltage value from the Rise and Fall knob settings."

" The Stochastic Function Generator is the first Eurorack module design by TEIA Synthesizers.More information here: http://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/view..."

The production of the first batch has already started, hopefully this will be ready by the end of February...
