With its ups, downs, tortuous turns and happy-go-lucky surprises, the Gemini's Path is a real swiss army knife for your stereo and dynamics duties.

The Gemini's Path consists of two analog VCAs controlled by a handy modulation source which can take the shape of an expander, an intuitive compressor-like device, offer different panning solutions, and more! Thanks to its trigger detector, the Gemini's Path extracts triggers from any CV or audio signal source and reacts to transients, allowing for quick reactivity in dynamic contexts.

Patch Ideas

Expander & Hold Expander
Obvious application is a decay on a stereo source (external triggering, shared control, with depth at max). With Dual Channels assignment, you can feed the inputs [1] with a sine wave & a noise, then mix the two outputs [2] and you get a snare drum generator with decay control on both sources. You can also auto accentuate drum groups, think side chain with a filtered version of the signal to select part of the spectrum that accentuates. In the Hold Expander mode, think about sustain duration applications such as in the old sampler.

Pump & Animated Pump
Feed the input with a stereo pad, a bass or whatever, send the kick drum in the External input , adjust the Threshold & there you go! You can also use this as two mono side chain compressors, triggered from the same element. The Gemini’s Path is not a real compressor, but we encourage the user to use it that way, especially on percussive sources. Even without an external triggering, the Pump & Animated Pump modes can lead to very special compression effects.

Pannings
The normalised input allows you to easily turn a mono source into a stereo signal. Create special panning effects while using the LFO Pan in two / independent channels. Mono Sine modulation leads to tremolo effects, mono "auto panning" can be used to mute & unmute signals. Mixing the outputs opens the door to crossfading, which can be easily controlled in Auto Pan mode.
