Manufacturer Description:

Vintage Edition with a black faceplate and custom knobs.

Clock multiplier with potentiometer adjustable or voltage controllable multiplying factor. It has three selectable modes, each wit hdifferent factors: integer numbers, power of two factors and a mix of both.

The module is suited to spped up clocks e.g. for doubletime but also for creating ratcheting sequences where one step generates more than one gate.


The three modes offer following multiplication factors:

integer numbers: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
power of two: 0, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16
mixed: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16

The multiplication factor can be set with a control unless a CV is patched. The module accepts CVs from 0V to +5V

Due to the nature of clock multiplying it takes a few input clock pulses until the clock output is stable. One has to average a few input clock pulses to generate the multiplied clock output signal. Even when the input clock frequency changes it will take a few cycles until the output clock signal is correct as the module cannot forsee the future of the clock input signal. The generated clock output signal is derived from the last few cycles of the clock input signal. Consequently the module should be driven only by a clock signal with constant or slowly changing frequency.
