I'm a bit scattering the info on the forum here, so I'll just copy this extra info on the module from the other thread on the Music subforum:
To get a bit more in depth on the 'Five Steps':
It has four fixed voltage tresholds: 0.83, 1.66, 2.5 and 3.33V. These values are chosen because the AE LFO's go +- from 0-4V.
Then it outputs a CV as follows: it outputs your first dialed in CV if input is between 0 and 0.83V, it switches to your second dialed CV if the inputs between 0.83 and 1.66V and so on. Its a bit similar to the quantizer in that manner, but you have more control as you can set the CV's. (only constraint is that the CV's will always be rising from the first knob to the next, because they effectively 'add' to eachother, but if you input eg an RBSS CV input you can still get more complex, non-rising arpeggio's).
It also has a 'root note' cv input, the input here 'adds' to all the other CV's. So you effectively 'transpose' all CV's with eg 1V. Great for variation.
Then it has some extra outputs. Just like the Quantizer it also outputs triggers each time the output changes.
And it also has 4 extra outputs, linked to each of the four thresholds, that give a logic signal (either 0 or 5V) depending on whether the corresponding treshold is passed. So for example, in this jam i generate a high 'snare' sound on one note of the arpeggio, by linking the 0.833V threshold output signal to the trigger for an envelope. Each time this threshold gets passed in the up direction, the logic output goes from 0-5V and the ENV gets triggered. I trigger another low 'kick' sound by linking two of the threshold outputs through some gates of the logic module.
The module has a lot of 'common ground' with the Quantizer, but also some very distinct features that are a lot of fun to play live with & do generative stuff. I'm really proud of this one! I actually hope to be able to release this as an assembled module, but need to figure some stuff out for that first..
Am I the only one checking daily if some news for this could be found 😜? Kinda thinking of removing my seq16 with this to gain some free spaces...
Haha, nice! Happy to hear you're hyped
This was the first prototype, it works but still has some small mistakes (triggers are not 100% reliable, holes for the pot are a tad bit too small,..). So its something like a 'proof of concept'. I will be ordering the (hopefully) final version from the pcb manufacturer this month. Production & delivery of the pcb's take at least a month, so I'm aiming for July to deliver the module. I'll keep updating here along the way!
