Sample & Hold



The Hungry Robot Sample & Hold provides basic S&H functionality with some added bells and whistles. It uses an internal clock dialed into a very useful range. If the internal clock rate is not to your liking, you can bypass the Rate knob by patching a clock signal into Clk In. The Sample & Hold has a built in attenuverter giving a bit of added control over the random voltages that are outputted. White noise out for uses elsewhere. Traditionally a S&H samples voltages from chaotic white noise, but E.In allows you to bypass the white noise and patch in your own sample source (i.e. patching an LFO in for a bit crushed LFO). As with all Hungry Robot "Modular Boxes" the Sample & Hold can be powered with a simple 9V DC, Negative Center power supply.

Controls & Patch Points

KNOBS -MINUS/PLUS: Attenuverter for output. Allows you to sweep between positive and negative voltage outputs. -RATE: On board clock source ranging from approximately 25ms to 1000ms. PATCH POINTS -E.IN: Bypasses internal white noise as a sample source. Patch in any CV source that you want to sample from -STATIC: Taps into white noise output (0-5V range) -CLK IN: Bypasses internal clock with your provided external clock
-S&H OUT: Two buffered outputs of S&H voltage

Technical Specs

Dimensions: 4.7” x 2.6” Power (Through Hole Units): 9V DC - Negative Center - 2.1mm Barrel Power (Surface Mount Units): 9V-12 DC - Negative Center - 2.1mm Barrel In the Spring of 2021, we transistioned to a new PCB design with a more efficient power circuit. This allowed for more flexibility in supply voltages. A quick look at the components under the back panel can determine which model you have.
