Pattern Ratcheter

A timed ratcheting unit with 8 steps and customisable patterns and gate times, including CV control over the gate times. Can be used in fixed mode (runs the whole sequence, 1 to 8 steps) or re-trigger mode. Outputs the combined trigger/gate signals plus individual step gates, and a chain trigger so that multiple 8-step units can be chained.

The timing can be from the host clock or from an optional gate input - the host/DAW mode is selected when no jack plugged into the clock in socket. In both cases, the rate can be set using the Beats control, from 1/16 beat to 16 beats per BPM. The module also includes a switchable minimum 2ms gate-width and improved controls to set the individual gate widths to a single value or master value.

When in external clock sensing mode, there is an advanced option to better manage gated inputs such as clock inputs from a sequencer that may be started and stopped. The feature (based on the advanced settings on the Clock Generator) allows tweaking of the timer used to determine that the clock input is "off" and not just going slower, and so can be used in many scenarios.

Also sold as part of Andrew Macaulay's Sequencing and Ratcheting Collection and included in Andrew Macaulay's Ultimate Bundle.
