OK good, glad it ended up being something simple.

To be able to bounce between the 2 states would be the icing on the cake of this already great module.
Yeah, that's not really possible, the Pause/Clock switches are analog functions and not something that could be simply remapped.
But unlike the Write/Clear functions (which are internal to the module's core functionality) you could externally patch your own Pause/Clock functions. You just need two momentary switches in between two pairs of I/O jacks. I am not sure which commercially-available module might fill this role but it could even be done as a passive DIY module. For the Pause function, patch your external clock through an ON/(OFF) momentary SPDT switch. For the Clock function, patch a +5V offset into an input, and use an OFF/(ON) momentary SPDT switch to gate the offset, which would create a periodic signal.
You could optionally add an OR gate to combine the two outputs into one so that you can patch the output of both processes into the Clock input on Permutation. My old Binary
module could handle the OR functions, or let you do other things like toggle between different clock sources or clock divisions.
Alternately, upgrade to the 18hp version and get everything in one module
Separately, I have moved production of Permutation to my new contract manufacturer, and due to the higher production costs and the effects of our wonderful "trade war" tariffs (ahem) the costs of Permutation and Variant will be increasing. This is an unfortunate necessity, otherwise I would not be able to keep the module in production. So this weekend would be a good time to grab a module at the older price + get a Black Friday discount from your retailer of choice. Price increases will be rolling out over the next month or so.
