POWER DISTRIBUTION Power is supplied to each Magellan module via its USB-port.

DATA COMMUNICATION The Magellan modules communicate with each other using standard 3.5mm cables sending and receiving 11-bit data. I call this technique C11D or Controlled 11-bit Data as a digital equivalent to CV, Controlled Voltage.

ANALOG VS DIGITAL SIGNALS Analog AC -2.5v to +2.5v is replaced by C11D/AC which spans between -1024 and +1024. Analog DC 0-5v is replaced by C11D/DC which spans between 0 and 1024. 1V/OCT 0-8v is replaced by C11D/OCT which spans between 0 and 122 (10 octaves).
