Doepfer A-160-5 Clock Multiplier/Ratcheting Controller
The Doepfer A-160-5 is a voltage controlled Clock Multiplier/Ratcheting Controller. You are able to patch an incoming clock signal into the A-160-5’s Clock In socket, and multiply it by a factor dependent upon the CV at the CV In socket, and the position of the Mode switch. This multiplied clock signal can be found at the Clock Out socket. The module also features LEDs to provide visual indication regarding the multiplication factor. The A-160-5 is equipped with a manual control for adjusting the multiplication factor manually, without the requirement of an external CV. The voltage that is generated by the control is normalled to the CV In socket, meaning it will work providing nothing is patched into CV In. The A-160-5 is a powerful tool for creating ratcheting sequences and multiplying the clock signal of your sequencer.
The A-160-5 can be used for a wide variety of clock multiplication applications. One important example is the generation of Ratcheting Sequences. A normal sequencer generates only a single gate signal per step, whereas a ratcheting sequence may have more than one gate pulse per step. This function can be achieved using the A-160-5. One CV output of your sequencer is used to define the number of gate pulses per step. If the control of the step in question is fully counter-clockwise, then the generated CV is 0V and no gate signal is generated (muted step). When the control of the step in question is turned clockwise, then one, two, or even more gate pulses are generated dependent upon the position of the mode switch, and the voltage generated by the CV at this step.
