Author Question about the 4ms clock divider
jjr
 Hello all -- So I have been reading the instructions of my 4ms clock divider - but I am still a little fuzzy on one or two things. mainly I want to know - If I re-configure the jumpers on the back is there a way to get the maximum passive ( with no CV applied ) division rate above 8? Or does reconfiguring the jumpers only effect the max division rate when CV's are applied?

 Well, not to sound like a d-bag, but the chart you posted answered your question. Any position of the jumpers other than "both in" increases the max. divide range with or without cv. The left side of the chart shows the range w/ cv applied to the "rotate" jack, the right side shows the range without cv.

 well - you may be right - but I find the diagram confusing. The right hand side says " with NO voltage applied to the CV rotate" -- and I know that the total divide range changes based on the amount of voltage SO in your interpretation then - what would be the other divide by amounts on 4ms between 1 and 64 when no jumpers added?

Well isn't that what you were asking? Is there a way to increase the divide range above 8 w/out cv? The right hand side of the chart shows the ranges with no cv present. The "9-16" setting means the "/1" jack becomes "/9", the "/2" jack becomes "/10" and so on up to /16.

There are 8 output jacks on the module, so no matter the jumper settings you will only have 8 sequential divisions of the clock signal unless you apply voltage to the rotate jack. With no jumpers present, as the chart shows your range will be from /33 (at the "/1" jack) to /40 (at the "/8" jack). The manual on the 4ms site shows the voltages required at the rotate jack to produce the other divisions.

 That's right - so the column on the right tells you what 8 divisions are present with no voltage at rotate, and on the left the significant thing to note is the highest number it can rotate to - so at the point of highest rotation if you keep going it wraps back around to 1,2,3, etc... It's just a limit - in the case of both 3 and 4 on you only have 1-8 available to rotate around because it's capped at 8, and like target said, with no jumpers on both 3 and 4 the unrotated voltage are as stated in the chart - 33,34,35,36,37,38,39,40 - but in that jumper mode you have the widest range of sequential voltages available to rotate to - which at the high end wraps around, so for instance you could have 62,63,64,1,2,3,4,5 for those funky 63 against 5 polyrhythms.

 ok thanks guys I think I get it now - I appreciate you taking the time to explain this too me. best jjr
