Which sequencers go beyond 0-5V?

Post by steffie268 » Wed Oct 02, 2019 3:20 pm

Hello,

I'm looking into which sequencers I could use for modulations, but many seem to be limited to 0-5V.
So far I've found a RYO module that can do bipolar -5...+5V and one EMW that does 0...+10V.
I don't think using offset generators or inverters would be as flexible as having proper 0...+10 or -5...+5V sequencing options.
So if any modules apart from the ones already mentioned meet my requirements, please tell me about them ;)

thx and grtz

I use the Z8000 which has jumpers you can set for output ranges.
The CV output of each sequencer can be set to 0-10V or 0-5V using the
jumpers on the back of the module. Factory set is 0-10V on all outputs.
Also for the -5 to +5 range there's the Erica Synths Mscale for the Mother 32 which is -5 to +5 v pitch input range. I just picked one up bu haven't used it yet.

Circuit Abbey's Intermix expander for the G8 does -5V to +5V.

Stages does 0 to +8V.


Honestly too big of a voltage range just makes a sequencer more difficult to tune without attenuating the output.

Verbos Multistage outputs 0-10v and is a modulation monster that blurs the line between sequence, envelope, lfo, slew, clock, etc.

Rossum Control Forge outputs -5v to +5v, can be offset for 0-10v with external module. Coincidentally, the Control Forge also blurs those sane lines.

Disappointment with any module is usually a failure of imagination.

Koma Komplex is switchable (track-to-track) between 0–2v, -1v–1v, 0-5v, -2.5v–2.5v, 0-10v and -5v–5v.

Dnipro Metamorph is jumperable (track-to-track) between 0V to 5V, 0V to 10V, -2.5V to 2.5V, -5V to 5V.

Frap USTA is switchable between ±5v and 0-10v.

Tirana II has four selectable ranges, including 0 to 10V and -5V to +5V.

The top row of Pressure Points is 0 to 8 V.

Thanks to all for the replies.
The Dnipro certainly looks promising for the price, I'll also look into the Tirana...

Is this a question about the range of notes that a sequencer can generate?

Pretty much any sequencer that accepts a CV offset can generate pitches beyond (either above or below) its default range.

My XOAC Moskwa sequencer doesn't have a CV input, but it can run in 2 modes:

Unipolar: 0 volts to 10 volts each step (10 octaves)

Bipolar: -5 to +5 volts each step. In this mode the Moskwa becomes a modulation sequencer.

The new Polyend Preset does 0-10v as well, and is quite nice for modulation and sequencing.

I am guessing that offset generator and amplifiers might mess with the tuning of a sequence, or at the very least with one's confidence about the tuning.

Sequencers aren’t used just for melodic purposes. In an ideal world, each CV output channel should have its own panel-selectable voltage range switch. I struggle to see why more Eurorack sequencers don’t provide this capability. While I love the Frap 321, I would prefer to have voltage range control integrated into the sequencer itself in order to simplify patching, provide accurate output voltages and help ensure proper voltage ranges across a Eurorack system.

The ladik S-180 series sequencers have a range and an offset/transpose knob on them and are great

The TipTop Z8000 does 0..10V. The MK2 has jumpers per track for 0..5V.

Slightly off topic, but I see this type of question come up quite often on Muffs (CV range of sequencers), and you have such an excellent reference in the catalogue you built. Do you see value in having a column for the output range for sequencers? I would be more than happy to aid in collecting the information if you felt that it is relevant.

I’m not opposed and I can set up that column. However, my comparison only covers the “fanciest” sequencers. I’m not particularly keen to take on all monitoring all the utility sequencers out there, useful as they are. Still worth it?
