Olegtron Confusor is a 4 channel signal router module suitable for routing all kinds of signals inside a Eurorack modular system.
In a nutshell with Confusor you can rearrange the patch without disconnecting the cables. The module is useful in switching the same CV modulation content or sound signals to different inputs, rerouting clock signals or triggers, creating fills and variations in live use and stumbling upon a patch you would not have created on purpose.
The module does not work as a mixer or multiple, it rather cross switches the input signals (top row) to different outputs (bottom row). This means that each input is presented at one output only. Using the 4 switches there are 16 different routings, ie. permutations available.
There are 4 input jacks in the top row and 4 output jacks in the bottom row. The two upper switches flip the order of inputs 1&2 and 3&4 to the lower switches. The two lower switches route the signals forward to outputs 1&4 and 2&3.
The user interface illustrates the flipping of inputs and outputs and routing between upper and lower switches. To make things even less confusing there is a bi-color LED in every input and output showing the signal. Green for positive and red for negative going signal. Together with the print in the panel the LEDs make it easy to keep track of the signals. Power is used only for the bi-color signal monitoring LEDs. The signal path is passive, so no alteration to the signal is done.
