Two takes on the USB/Analog Audio Out:
Marc St. Regis
The SE-02 produces analog and USB audio simultaneously, and as a result, with the Ext Box connected,
SE-02's analog signal, passing through the Ext Box's drive/hi-pass circuits, will continue through to
the Ext Box's audio output. To clarify, the
12dB (6dB slope) drive/hi-pass audio path, sourced from the SE-02 and/or the External Input, is analog
and passes only to the Ext Box audio output (1/8" and 1/4"). The frequency CV and gate are very high
resolution digital controls, and affect the USB and analog audio. The Ext Box allows very smooth filter
frequency manipulation (VCF Cutoff), expanded gate functionality, and external input processing to pass
back to USB audio: plenty there for the for USB-only audio enthusiasts to discover, without the benefit
of the Drive and Hi Pass filter in the mix, which of course is nevertheless always outputted.
The Xbox will affect the VCF Cutoff, the External Input, and the Gate in the USB output. The Hi Pass
Overdrive will not be heard thru the USB connection, only the 1/8 and 1/4" outputs of the EXT Box.
