This came up on the FB group but it’s easier to answer here:
The question from Raffaele Raffaman Cassese
“hi…just purchased vcv module chords…how i can rotate between 1 o 2 or n chords?..a trigger input on adv make preset advance to the last 10th preset and then restart…can someone give some tips about it?”

The answer is using the ADDR input of the CHORDS module. I assume it’s doing some internal rounding in order to choose which preset to load, but you can use the VCV QNT if you want exact integral voltages (0.0, 1.0, 2.0 etc) – if you only include the root note of the scale then each note value it outputs will be exactly 0.0, 1.0, 2.0 etc.

just use the right click menue on ADDR-SEQ and set it to 0-10V,
then you can set each step to a value from 0 to 10 in whole numbers via the right click.

another way is to use a Nysthi Fixed Voltage module and dial in the voltages you want and send their outs to a sequential switch and this to the CHORDS.


There’s also the simple and effective SS-221 by Submarine.

and Nysthi’s The Cage is perfect for this, just type your values in and choose as many steps as you want connect a gate/trigger to the trigger and there you go …
