Using Shades am I increasing an LFO signal range correctly?

Hello. I’m new to hardware Eurorack so apologies for the beginner question. So far I have a Stages, Kinks, Plaits and Shades (2020), as well as a Nonlinear Circuits Sloths 1U, Winterbloom Sol and a 2HP LFO. The latter outputs its voltages in a range of 0v to +5v. To increase the range from 0v to +8v I’m using Shades like this:

  • 0v to +5v output from the LFO going into both input 1 and 2 of the Shades (via a multiple built in to my case).
  • Functions on 1 & 2 set to attenuator
  • Knob 1 set to 5pm and knob 2 set to 12 noon.
  • Using the output from output 2 only of Shades.

Is that about right or are there other ways of doing this with less cables, etc.? Many thanks.

This is the right way, A single Shades does not provide gain, so the only way to get it is to mix two channels.


Thank you! :slight_smile:
