Steps is a simple 4 step voltage/gate sequencer. An external clock patched to the CLK input moves the sequencer along. An unquantized analog voltage is sent to the dual identical CV outputs. The amplitude of the CV signal is set with the corresponding knob.
Outputs G1 – G4 make up a simultaneous gate sequencer. These spit out a 5V gate during the corresponding step regardless of the CV knob position.
With the RST (reset) input, the sequencer can be forced to return to step 1 at anytime. This is activated via a small push-button switch, or with a CV signal. Ordinarily, the sequencer loops at 4 steps, but by patching a gate output into RST even smaller 2-3 step operation is possible.
The specific uses for this utility module are nearly unlimited, but some effective patches involve using this sequencer in combination with another sequencer to get longer musical phrases. Or for programmed pitch variations with drum modules, filters, etc…
