The Cyclic-Skew is a basic modulation source in the 1U tile format. It has two modes of operation; Cycle mode and Envelope mode which are set by the toggle switch on the front panel. In cycle mode it operates as a variable shape LFO where you can set the Rate and the Skew. It has similar operation and range as the LFO in the Korg MS-20. Unlike the Korg LFO, the Cyclic Skew has the ability to reset the LFO on an external trigger event.
In Envelope mode the Trigger input produces a single envelope each time it receives a trigger or gate signal. If a new trigger occurs before the envelope completes a reset takes place and the envelope with restart from the bottom of the cycle.
On the back of the tile is a pair of Dip switches for setting the output to either Un-ipolar or Bi-polar and for setting the output level.
