1610 V-Gates

Voltage Controlled Clock Generator/Modulator

The SSL 1610 V-Gates has a powerful combination of features for your clocking and gating pleasure. In fact, there are well over 300 variations of gates, functions and modes. And many of these functions can be voltage controlled!

Analog Knobs on a Digital Gate?
Absolutely! You bet! Although knobs might seem to make more sense for analog, with digital functions the knobs actually allow very versatile selections of what we call “Sub-Functions”. These sub-functions allow you to adjust how the gate outputs react with the input clock, among other things.

Modes, Functions and Sub-Functions
The 1610 has two Modes – analog & digital - each with three Functions. Functions (and sub-functions) allow control over how the outputs respond to the input. Sub-functions in digital mode, allow the outputs to selectively follow the input pulse width and control up/down actions.

Sub-functions in analog mode, controls the number of outputs affected by the input CV. In Analog mode, the 1610 follows an input control voltage (CV) to produce unique combinations of output gate signals. Binary, Step and Slope functions are available. A clock output is available that produces a 1 millisecond (ms) pulse for each change of output state.

In Digital mode, the outputs change in step with the input clock. Binary, Step and Random functions are available. This makes the 1610 very useful in creating rhythmic patterns, as well as random (no patterns) outputs. The outputs respond from DC to over 400 Hz, although 400Hz – (At rates greater than about 60Hz, jitter is more apparent)
