ADC

Input is via one of UNIpolar (0-5V) or Bipolar (+-5V) inputs. Every time CLocK is high, a sample will be taken of the analogue input and converted to eight digital bits, which will then be available on the output jacks as an eight-bit binary number. Each jack describing a power of 2, from 2^7 down to 2^0 (ie, eight-bit binary digits). A voltage sampled as being 139 ((5V/256)*139) would be 10001011 in binary, meaning, from top to bottom, jacks would be high-low-low-low-high-low-high-high.

Example usage: input a waveform and a clock source and you'll get a series of repeatable rhythmic triggers.

Depending on the setting of a jumper on the rear of the module, gate pulse out is either: identical in duration to clock gate length; or, high for the duration of the clock step.

The module utilises discrete logic, not a microprocessor in sight. This enables it to run as fast as you can possibly push it – easily reaching audio rate and beyond.

Pairs great with... an LFO — use slow moving waveforms to create repeating patterns.
