Non-linear sequencer

VOLTAGE RUNNER (previously known as VCSQ V2) is a complex sequencer that is designed for non linear sequencing. The initial impetus to its creation is to serve as add-on for TTLFO (both the original and V2). What sets VOLTAGE RUNNER apart from other sequencers is that it takes the incoming CV input (preferably a LFOs or other modulation sources rather than to Clock or Trigger) to determine the speed and the step-direction in which the sequencer operates.

What is the VOLTAGE RUNNER? The VOLTAGE RUNNER is a complex sequencer module for non linear sequencing. It is made as an add-on for the TTLFO but also works really good with any other CV source like an ADSR.

Basically the VOLTAGE RUNNER is just crazy sequencer which is not your average step sequencer! It runs on an incoming voltage instead of a clock signal, that's where it's name comes from.

The VOLTAGE RUNNER is a voltage addressing sequencer which decides which step is playing on the incoming voltage. But as that still is not enough for making a useful non-linear sequencer I added some very important features to make it a very versatile sequencer in combination with the TTLFO.
What does it makes so different than a normal sequencer?
1: no clock input but a voltage input
2: CV controllable start point en CV controllable play length
3: two play modes for the play length calculation
4: possibly one of the few sequencers to do real controllable offbeat sequences
5: offset input makes it possible to use it as arpeggiator
6: step 8 can be step one and it just counts on via step 1
7: the sequences are not limited to clock pulses and makes it suitable for experimental improvisations
8:... there is a lot more I can say about it but it is time that I should grab my camera one day to show all the possibilities

... oh and it is very small for what it all can do!
Overall the VOLTAGE RUNNER makes a great tool for a new way of sequencing on a nonlinear way.

Features:
4 CV inputs
CV input for step select
CV input for offset
CV input for Start point
CV input for Play length
4 outputs

CV output (adjustable per step)
gate output (selectable per step)
trigger output (linked to the gate output and selectable per step)
pulse output (gives a pulse out on every step change)

A little more about the two play modes:
There are two play modes available on the module which are actually a little hard to explain by text. The two modes makes the sequencer doing different calculations with the chosen Play length in comparison to the full Play length of 8 steps. In mode 1 the sequencer will play the same step length of each step like they would be if it was playing 8 steps but repeats the steps till it played 8 steps. In mode 2 the step length will change accordingly to the chosen play length. This means that the steps will be longer if the Play length is shorter.
