569 Expander Gate Basic - an alternate gate expander for the 569 sequencer
Similar to the standard expander, the 569EG, but only 4 output and selector pairs with each pair associated with one row of the 569. Connects to the same port on the back of the Moon 569 sequencer that is intended for the 569EG. More than one 569EGB and/or 569EG can be connected simultaneously. The rotary switch routes one of the Gate outputs of the 8 stages in the row to one jack. This saves space over the 569EG and it is more immediately "playable".
The rotary selectors are 12 position with several OFF positions placed in between so that the gate output can be disconnected instantly. Positions 1 through 12 for each row are labeled:
1) OFF - 1 - 2 - OFF - 3 - 4 - OFF - 5 - 6 - OFF - 7 - 8
2) OFF - 9 - 10 - OFF . . .
3) OFF - 17 - 18 - . . .
4) OFF - 25 - 26 - OFF - 27 - 28 - OFF - 29 - 30 - OFF - 31 - 32
Remark: module is powered by the 569 it is being connected to.
Remark on the Remark: While the module doesn't have it's own power connection, it does draw additional current from the 569 that it's connected to. I'm going through all the 569 accessory modules and determining what each accessory module draws by comparing what difference the connected module causes on the 569 current draw. I've also updated the 569 values to what it draws just by itself. JLR
