  1. Unlocking Creativity with HAPHA: A Guide to the ST Modular Eurorack Module

    HAPHA is a compact locked random voltage module that enhances the organic qualities of your patches. It generates synchronized random voltages, tied to an external clock signal, and allows you to stabilize these voltages into fixed sequences. Ideal for controlling filters and shaping sounds, simply connect a clock signal to the CLK input to start using HAPHA. By adjusting the LCK knob, you can create and lock new voltage sequences, with an LED indicator showing voltage changes. The module features random gate and CV outputs, clock sync, the ability to lock CV and gate sequences, external CV input, skiff-friendly design, and wrong polarity protection. For added control, patch a control voltage into the serial input SER to directly influence the random voltages at the outputs.
