2.10 The SEQUENCER Module
This is the 64 cell polyphonic sequencer, arpeggiator. There are 2 rows for pitch and trigger (CV1,CV2), two rows for gating (GATE1,GATE2) and two rows for modulation (MOD1,MOD2). On each row you can set Type of sync, collumn to start, number of steps, speed, Pulse width and glide. The pulse wide, speed and glide values can be modulated. The outputs of the sequencer can be connected to almost all of the modules which gives you endless combinations of manipulating sounds.

Working principle
The SEQUENCER has 6 sub sequencers called CV1,CV2,GATE1,GATE2,MOD1 and MOD2. Each sub sequencer has his own cell range that you assign at the START and STEP collumns. Al the sequencers are started if a note gets pressed on your key board or a note is recieved from your host software, the sequencers are key triggered. At the SPD collumn you determine how fast the sellected cells are stept.

Cell's, Collumns and Row's
The sequencer has a total of 64 cell's devide over 8 row's of 8 cell's each. In the above picture ROW3 is selected, so the cell change knobs 1-8 wil set the value of cell numbers 17-24. The cell collumns you see are the same cell!. Whether the cell you change belongs to a CV1, CV2, ... row is determined by the START and STEP collumns.

CV1, CV2
CV1 and CV2 are the pitch and trigger sequencers. The values in the belonging cell's represent semi tones and can be changed between -24 and +24 semi tones. These ptich values are added to the note value that triggered the sequence. The CV1 and CV2 pitch values are sent to the pitch,frequency terminals that you find on the VCO and VCF modules. If you programmed a little melody on let say CV1 and selected CV1 at the CV section of a VCO than that VCO wil change frequency according the melody.
