AS RS-450 CV-Recorder Sequencer soon



Ich hoffe das Teil kommt bald, damit ich mein Euromodularprojekt endgültig beenden kann ;-)

As the rs450 gets closer to completion we found it can sample at
audio rate as well it will be lo fi of course at 15kHz
Each of the 10 memory banks can hold up to 10 minutes of cv recording at highest sample rate in Real Time mode (synthi KS.
When in Step Time mode (sh101) it is in weeks!
We are still unsure of a release date as the unit is being given a thorough
forensic test to make sure when it is released there are no bugs.



Prelim details via the Big City Music blog:

"This module will re create the KS section of the legendary EMS synthi AKS when in Real Time mode.In Step Time mode it will emulate the Roland SH101 sequencer section. In addition the module is a 4 channel cv recorder with non volatile memory contained in 12 banks. We are working on the possibility of layering up to 4 tracks of recorder cv data but this spec may vary subject to change

MMC card on-board for storage.

· One shot
· Loop
· Hold - like one-shot but it will remember it's place when you stop playing and resume from that point. The reset input resets back to the start.
· Forward
· Reverse
· Bi-dir. In one-shot mode should this reverse each time it is triggered
Sequencer mode
· Step - Records/plays back the levels each time it is triggered. While playing back this would be very similar to step sequencers. You need to provide an external gate in this mode.
· Continuous/Real Time - The outputs simply track the inputs. Clock in is recorded along with the CVs so you can record gates/triggers. Playback rate is controlled by the speed pot/CV.
Trigger mode.
· Trigger - A trigger on PLAY starts playback,a trigger on STOP stops playback. The same goes for record
· Gate - PLAY/RECORD are gates. STOP does nothing
· Start/stop - A trigger on PLAY starts playback, another trigger on PLAY stops playback. The same goes for record
· 10 (maybe 12) independent recordings can be stored.

Clock in In step mode this provides the step clock. In continuous/Real Time mode it is recorded and output on clock out when playing back.
Clock out In step mode this mirrors clock in. In continuous/Real Time mode it outputs the recorded clocks/triggers.
Reset Resets the loop back to the beginning but does not stop playback. Probably most useful in hold mode.
CV outs While recording they mirror the CV inputs so you can monitor the inputs. In step mode while recording the outputs only change on each gate so you hear exactly what is being recorded."


Gut durchdachtes Modul.

Einzig zur Funktion der "DC Offset"-Buchse finde ich keine Erklärung. Für was kann die sein?
Moment, vielleicht ich das ein CV-In der den 4 Kanälen als Offset zugemischt wird. Also zum transponieren der ganzen Sequenz (im Stepmode).
Das wäre toll.

Da bin ich wirklich gespannt auf das Modul.


Ich habe heute Abend ein Treffen mit jemanden der evtl. mehr weiß, aber ich denke es wird noch ein wenig dauern bis das Modul fertig gestellt wird.


Hello Mxxx
Yes we will be showing the beta model at this years Frankfurt Messe show in April

Best Wishes
