need help; how separate gates in sequencer?

hello, currently i use countmodular sequencer and the entrian paid one. i wonder how it is possible to separate the differerent gates from one step to another. think it is called retrigger. if i switch on all gates, the scope shows only one contiguous gate high. after searching in the library i found an sequencer from AS that could do this. any ideas how to make it work with entrian or countmodula? i want to use them.

Regards karl

This is what I love about Count Modulas sequencers, but if you want separate gates, use the trigger outputs, not the gates.


Yep, the trigger outputs actually follow the pulse width of the incoming clock so that you can vary their length by modulating the clocking pulse width.


Aha, you mean modulate the trigger with e.g. Bogaudio Dgate?

Using the Entrian sequencers, a sequence of adjacent notes should drop the gate between each pair of notes, so there’s no need for retrigger:

If that’s not what you’re seeing, and the gate is being held high across multiple notes, could you DM me with a patch that demonstrates the problem?

Not really , the pulse width of the incoming clock determines the pulse like this :

Change PW1 on clocked and see what happens.

hello, sorry for the noise. it was my fault. with entrian it works. with countmodula not. will check a bit deeper why. regards karl

From the Count Modula User Manual, Basic Sequencer:

There is 1 gate and 1 trigger output which can be selected via the individual step switches. The trigger outputs follow the pulse width of the clock signal, and the gate outputs stay high for the duration of any selected step. Selecting the gate output for two consecutive steps results in a single gate signal for the duration of both steps. Note that the CV outputs will still change for each step even though the gate does not.


Yes thank you. I read that, but wanted to seperate gates for a patch. Now i think, i have to dive a bit deeper hiw to combine theses info. Regards Karl

The trigger output sends gates that are as wide as the clock’s pulse width. Isn’t that what you’re after?

Yes, but i do not know that the trigger output could be a gate.:+1:

A trigger is just a 1 ms gate.

From Voltage Standards

Trigger sources should produce 10 V with a duration of 1 ms .

Gates should produce 10 V when active.

you can use these and the

Bogaudio DGate

to get gates from them,
and with Stoermelders µMap you can have varying gate length on each trigger
