The SW4-C Multi-Switch Controller is a two-in-one device capable of performing a wide range of tasks.

Its main function is to act as a 4 way switch sending incoming cv information to 1 of 4 destinations.

It is also an important element in the R.O.M.O.S concept aimed at producing random soundscapes on multi-speaker set-ups.

As a secondary function, the SW4-C can be used as a compact controller with 8 knobs and 8 buttons.
