This collection of four significant modules a number of ratcheting modules as well as a step generator. More sequencing-related modules will be added in future releases.

The collection currently includes the comprehensive and highly flexible Pattern-based Ratcheter; a simpler, multiple fixed-step micro-Ratcheter synchronized to the Host/DAW or an external clock; and a Voltage-Controlled Ratcheter, providing even more ways to integrate ratcheting into your sequencing. These modules are useful when used with sequencers and pattern generators to generate even more complex rhythms.

The Step Generator module provides a flexible tool to generate CV steps (up, down, up/down, down/up - up to 256 steps each way) in single-shot and repeating patterns, with multiple ways to setup the steps/sizes (including quantized for notes).

This collection also includes the Notes Panel 8HP and 16HP panels for adding notes as well as a set of tutorial presets. Note that any new modules added to this collection in the future will be included at no extra cost to existing users.

Using the micro-Ratcheter with the Cherry Audio 8-to-1 switch or the Voltage Controlled Switch from the Andrew Macaulay's Switches and Mixers collection allows complex behaviours with sequencing. The addition of randomness from the Probability Generator from Andrew Macaulay's General Utility Collection can make for some interesting patterns that will change over time.

This collection is also included in Andrew Macaulay's Ultimate Bundle.

Andrew Macaulay's modules are a suite of Control and Utility focused modules for Voltage Modular around gates/trigger handling, envelopes, ratcheting/sequencing and mixing/switching. Andrew is a musician and retired IT pro who started developing modules for Voltage Modular to add useful tools for use in his own compositions before deciding to share them through the store.
