RCD Breakout (RCDBO)

The RCD Breakout adds features to the Rotating Clock Divider module. Six switches allow you to set the maximum Divide-by amount, Gate or Trigger mode, Counting mode, Spread mode, and Auto-Reset. The RCD Breakout requires the RCD to function, and does not use any extra power.

Features
  • Divide-by-1 to Divide-by-64, on 8 output jacks
  • CV Rotate jack to shift divide-by amount on each jack
  • CV Reset jack to reset/re-sync all jacks
  • Optional break-out panels to expand functionality (Auto-reset, selectable Divide-by range, Gate/Trigger, Up/Down-counting)
Jacks
  • Clock Input (5V to 15V clock, rising edge triggered), max 3kHz
  • CV Rotate (0V to +5V input)
  • CV Reset (5V to 15V trigger)
  • Divided Clock Outputs (8 jacks):
    • Divide-by-(1+R)
    • Divide-by-(2+R)
    • Divide-by-(3+R)
    • Divide-by-(4+R)
    • Divide-by-(5+R)
    • Divide-by-(6+R)
    • Divide-by-(7+R)
    • Divide-by-(8+R)
    ...where R is the CV Rotation.
  • Selectable Gate/Trigger mode:
  • Selectable Divide range up to Divide-by-64:
    Two jumper pins on the back can be pre-set with jumpers plugs, or used with (forthcoming) breakout panel.
  • Selectable Auto-reset:
    Auto-reset will reset the divide counter every 16/24/32 clocks, which keeps the beats more "dance-able" even when using the "weird" clock divisions (3/5/6/7/9/10/11/etc..) Two jumper pins on the back can be pre-set with jumpers plugs, or used with (forthcoming) breakout panel.

Module size:
The RCD is 4HP and 48mm (1.85")

Power consumption:

  • +12V rail: __mA
