Shown at winter NAMM 2017, the Qu-Bit Electronix Contour module takes a unique approach to envelope generators. It’s worth mentioning that it also makes a perfect pair with one of my favorite modules, Qu-Bit’s Chord.

As per Qu-Bit Electronix description…

Contour is a quad envelope generator. Each channel has looping, CV over attack and decay, as well as unique chaining capabilities. This makes for the creation of complex modulation patterns with a minimum amount of trigger sources. Cycle times range from 5ms all the way to 20 minutes, providing an extremely wide range. In addition to its full feature set and four channel architecture, the ergonomic interface makes it ideal for performance scenarios.

Never run out of envelopes again. Contour ships today!
