Ataraxic Translatron is a 4HP linear feedback shift register oscillator similar to those used in the first generation of home video game consoles and many classic arcade games.

AT has standard 1 volt per octave pitch control and CV control of the current patch. An external clock mode that allows an external clock to drive the shift register allows for additional tone generation, modulation and gate generation.
