To clarify, it’s only quantized via the keypad output jack, but you can tune it and play with the keypads however you want using the A-D CV outs - you could even play up to 5-note chords with the keypads and all the outs if you wanted to get really nuts - here’s a TKB (THC, not R*S) sample I made (not chords, though, hahaha!) :

thanks! yeah for some reason I initially confounded the semitonal-quantization of the KEY output with the unquantized voltage A-D out. I noticed your IG clip when posted and it helpfully served to corroborate what others clarified here for me. TKB is a very high acquisition priority for me—still need to get my voice and control panels first, however. but who cares! thanks again!

Looking forward to seeing the TKB in future videos. Thanks for sharing that clip.


Edit: Wow, this looks like it would be even more fun to jam with than I imagined

Hello everyone ! Here is a new one in my Wired Brain channel Patch From Scratch series with two 0-Coast controlled by a single R*S TKB, it's a very fun setup to explore !

I have a quick question - if you press 2 or more keys at the same time, are the combined voltages added to the appropriate row output jack? I use the swamp currently and looking for the same functionality of multiple combined button / pad presses.

If I recall snippets here and there they implemented a priority encoder so no more multi-note freak outs. On the TKB pressing multiple pads causes a noisy jumping around. On the Swamp/Programmer/CGS style multiple notes give you different voltages. “Someone” I know could probably build you a 16 step swamp style with touch pads ;)

Thanks - if it's a note stealing / priority 1 note kind of deal with combined presses on the TKB, then that wouldn't work for me. I'm looking for something like AND type logic instead of OR type. I'll stick with what I have, and maybe mod the buttons on my Swamp. You can see here how I play it. It's a very specific way that I don't want to change as it gives me a large combination of voltages depending on different combined button presses. This is off my "In Blue" Serge improv album

Good time to see this. A very good point, mudlogger.
Need to re-assess the programmer SEQ modules with this in mind. I want at least one of each type. Thanks.

There is a jumper on the rear to set the TKB to "classic" mode w/o key priority.

In classic mode, does pressing multiple pads sum columns to the appropriate ABC and D outs? I am assuming yes in Classic mode. Also does it do it, without causing what people have described as “noisy jumping around” There’s no noise jumping at all with multiple Swamp presses but then again it doesn’t have pressure control and wondering what the interference is. The way I play the Swamp is press 3 or 4 columns at the same time, holding them like chords and changing the knob voltages at the same time. So the pulses and cv’s are summed and I’m mixing cv columns on the fly, sometimes whilst the sequencer is clocked, sometimes not clocked.
