The A-183-3 is a simple amplifier. It is DC coupled and can be used for both CV and audio signals. The maximum amplification can be switched between 1, 2 and 4 (in position 1 the module does not work as a real amplifier but only as attenuator). The level can be adjusted by means of the Level control between zero and the chosen maximum amplification (1/2/4). Two overload LEDs indicate if the output signal goes beyond about +10V or becomes less than about -10V. Input and output are equipped with miniature 2-way multiples (parallel connected sockets).
The main application of this module is to adapt differing audio or CV levels between different modules or systems. For example LFO, ADSR or Gate levels between modules of different manufacturers can be increased or attenuated. But even audio signals can be attenuated or amplified up to 4.
Note that the module cannot be used as an amplifier for external low level audio signals such as microphones or electric guitars.
