Moon Modular - 569: Quad Sequential Voltage Source
The last analog sequencer you'll ever need...
The M569 is an analog step-sequencer with up to 32 positions, arranged in four rows.
Each row can be controlled absolutely independent from each other, so that the user has practically up to four separate sequencers at his disposal, each with its own clock - and reset-input jacks, and - at the same time - different running directions (up, down, random, and "ping-pong").
In addition the control voltage outputs can be switched between three ranges (2V, 5V, 10V, with the 2V and 5V ranges supplying a (to 1/12 V) quantized output voltage.
Each step position has its own "step-mode" - switch to toggle the gate signal of the respective step position on or off.
In the "Function" position it (again separately for the four rows) can defined as skip, reset or stop-command.
The sequencer modes in detail:
All four rows run in series to achieve sequences of up to 32 steps; only "Reset Input "1 and "Shift Input 1" are active then; as well as the switches "Direction 1", "Range 1" and "Function 1".
With the "Direction" switch 2 in the "Down" or "Random" position the "ping-pong" mode (up-down) is activated. All four gate and voltage outputs supply an identical output signal.
Rows 1 and 2 run in series, as well as rows 3 and 4 (1 & 2 and 3 & 4 in parallel), so up to 16 steps divided in two sequences are possible here.
"Reset Input" 1 & 3 and "Shift Input" 1 & 3 are active, just as
the switches "Direction" 1 & 3, "Range" 1 & 3 and "Function" 1 & 3.
With "Direction" switches 2 resp. 4 in position "Down" or "Random", the "ping-pong" mode (up-down) is activated.
The gate outputs 1 & 2, 3 & 4 and the control voltage outputs 1 & 2, 3 & 4 supply each identical signals.
All four rows 1, 2, 3 & 4 run in parallel and independently from each other, all inputs, switches and jacks act separately, the four outputs deliver their own signal each. This is the "four sequencers in one" mode.
Sort of "preset-subset" of the 4x8 mode.
All four sequencer-rows run always in parallel and in step, controlled by one common pair of shift and reset commands, just like a "four-channel-sequencer".
Another "preset-subset", this time derived from the 2x16 mode.
The sequencer-rows 1/2 und 3/4 run always in parallel and in step, controlled by two common pairs of shift and reset commands, just like a 16 step "two-channel sequencer" - think 'stereo'.
The Module is six "Moog Units" (MU) wide and requires power from a Synthesizers.Com power header. This is not a standalone sequencer and does not do MIDI. Only Control Voltage and Gate/Triggers. Please ask before buying if You do not understand this format.
