The MINI-ARK is a monophonic tracking device. This means that it works very differently on different types of sounds. For example, a monophonic guitar line is going to achieve far different results than a super compressed drum track. Snazzy FX recommends that you first think about the source you are putting into the box, and then adjust accordingly.
The Mini-ARK was designed with four goals in mind:
- to work with as many different signals as possible
- to track quickly
- to allow for subtle as well as ridiculous sounds
- to allow basic control over an external VCO and ADSR/VCA when using a bass or guitar using the GATE and SQUARE outputs (gate connects to gate in on an ADSR and SQUARE connects to the SYNC IN on an external VCO)
