A creative and musical module for creating beautiful and harmonious musical sequences.
The module A-156 is a dual quantizer for control voltages. A quanitiser converts a continuous positive input voltage into a stepped output voltage. The steps have an interval of exactly 1/12V (one semitone with the 1V/oct characteristic). This is a perfect companion to an analog sequencer. It can also quantise other control voltages like envelopes, noise or random signals.
The botton unit allows different scales like minor and major scales, major and minor chord, fundamental plus fifth and addition of seventh or sixth when chords are selected. The operating mode is being selected with toggle switches. Usually the upper unit works with chromatic scaling but after relocating an internal jumper the upper unit can quantise in the same scale as the bottom unit.
The A-156 quantisatises constantly. If you put in a square signal to the trigger input the quantisation happens only at an incoming rising edge. This makes possible to synchronise the quantisation rhythically. A trigger signal is being output at the trigger out each a quantisation process happens. Additionally the A-156 has a common transpose input for a CV.
