## Compute a Sequence

The module generates a sequence consisted of 8 steps of triggers when it runs the **"Compute"** function.

**"Compute"** function interprets the **"Computational Value"** as an 8-bit number and each "bit" of the number forms a state of a step in a sequence.

First (leftmost) step of the sequence is the 8th bit of the **Computational Value** and the last (most right) step is the 1st bit of the value.

The 8th bit becomes an indicator of the "sign" of the value if the **Computational Value** is a negative value. If you want to set a first step of the sequence "on", setting negative values to the **Computational Value** is an easier choice.

The range that the **Computational Value** can handle at a time is "±0 to +255" or "-127 to +127." Since the internal calculator changes its interpretation of the **Computational Value** automatically between "unsigned 8-bit variable" and "signed 8-bit variable", you don't need to worry about strict type of **Computational Value**.

## Controls and I/O

### Knobs

**CV1-4 Gain:**changes the level of incoming signal from each of the input sockets.

### Buttons

**+/x:**changes the way of calculating the**Computational Value**. Calculation always goes through left (CV In 1) to right (CV In 4) regardless of the setting of these arithmetic operations. If a input socket is empty, the value from that socket is simply ignored. In case you want to have "x0.00v" in the*calculation,*you need to inject a signal of 0 volt.**Compute:**runs the**Compute**function and it applies the result of*computation*to the selected lane.**Step:**advances the position of the sequence a step at a time of the button pushed.**Select lane1-4:**selects a lane for emitting triggers and*computing.*

### Switches

**Calculation Mode:**The calculator constructs voltage value from CVs as the labels shows. In**Mode 1**, voltage value of 1v becomes 100 of**Computational Value**. In**Mode 2**, CV values are multiplied by 100 before they get into the calculator and 0.01v of voltage value becomes 100 of the**Computational Value**.**Computational Value Lock:**changes the state of**Computational Value**between editable or not. When the value is*locked,*the result of calculation of CV value are not refreshed and the latest value is kept for**Compute**function.**Track Select Mode:**switches how the selection of the lane of tracks is changed when the trigger is sent to the**Seq Select Trig Input**sockets (details below*Inputs*section). It only affects the behavior of**Seq Select Trig In 1-4**input sockets and selecting lanes by pushing buttons is not affected.

### Label

**CV In 1-4:**Voltage value of incoming signals is shown here after the gain change is applied.**Computational Value:**shows the result of calculation of CV values. Also you can edit the value manually by clicking on the label or dragging the mouse up/down on the label. If you edit the value manually, the module automatically changes the state of**Computational Value Lock**to*locked.*

### Grids

**Seq Lane1-4:**displays a sequence. Also you can edit sequences directory by left-clicking or dragging the mouse.

### Inputs

**CV In 1-4:**gets CV signals for source of calculation of**Computational Value**.**Compute Trig In:**runs the**Compute**function and the function applies the result of*computation*to the selected lane.**Seq Select Trig In 1-4:**When it received a trigger signal in*Direct Mode*of the*Track Select Mode,*it selects corresponding lane as current selection of the sequence. When the*Track Select Mode*switch is set to*Cycle Mode,*all of the**Seq Select Trig In**s are functioned to cycle the selection of lane.**Step Trig In:**advances the position of the sequence a step at a time of receiving a trigger signal.

### Outputs

**Seq Trig Out:**emits the sequences of trigger signals from selected lane.**RTB(Return To Beginning) Trig Out:**emits a trigger when the position of the sequence returned to the beginning.
