Count

Put a CLocK source in and watch it count up to eight. A trigger on ReSeT will start the count from one again. For instance: patching an output to RST will reset the count at the point — for instance, patching 5 to RST will make the module count to four — creating a clock divider with accessible steps.

When OUT is high, the count outputs are enabled. When it is low, they are disabled and do not spit out counts. If no jack is inserted, OUT is normalised high - the default is to output counts. Put a rhythm in to OUT to use it as a rhythm distributor.

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... itself! — use two or more Count modules to create polyrhythms by patching Count outputs in to Count CLocK inputs.
