the rotary starting with 5 is sequence length.

Analogue for UK English speakers. Like synthesisers.

I was not sure if it was also US/UK difference (Analogue Systems etc).

Yes but why not 4 steps sequence? Or 3? Can be really fun actually.
I guess it's more practical/affordable with a standard 12 positions rotary switch than a 16...
As I often make it more complicate than necessary, I'd ask myself do I use more 3 or 4 steps than 11 or 13.
And prob. end up using a 16 positions anyway!

I think we have to blame the French for that spelling. They exported a lot of words to us, we pronounce most of the letters and usually end up only pronouncing half the word.

There is as much etymology of sequencers here! I agree with the switching of sequencer length. I’ve got an unfinished MFOS sequencer, I’ll look at the length options and circuit around the values (having an engraved FPD panel I won’t be making any changes). As you say, a good number of people would have fun with 2,3 or 4 steps rather than 11 or 13 (forgive me all you jazzers and proggers).

I laid out my sequencer in parallel lines do the controls match my other bits. My own inclination is that set up.

In ye olde days you got 12 step sequencers from Roland. Isn’t That why some of the early Human League songs are in 3/4?
