If you ever feel the need to merge or split some Audio or CV signals, these two eight-legged utilities are perfect for the job.
No knobs, no buttons and no display. Spider Audio may not be much to look at, but if you're a seasoned Reason producer, it might be just the thing you've been searching for. The Spider Audio utlity has two purposes in life: to merge and to split audio. All this splitting and merging brings more of the hardware studio's patching capabilities into the software realm. Try merging multiple audio signals and process them with the same insert effect, as in sending three of Redrum's toms to the same compressor. Or try splitting an instrument's output into four, and send them to four different effect processors.
Like brother Audio, Spider CV lacks all the visual trademarks of an effect device, because just like Spider Audio, it isn't one. Spider CV is exactly the same kind of utlity as Spider Audio, but here the splitting and merging is performed on CV and gate signals. Which lets you get very scientifical about your music: split the CV signals from the Matrix Pattern Sequencer to trigger several synths with the same pattern. Or merge the outputs of several LFO's to create some very complex modulation patterns.
