Quantizers take continuously varying voltages and translate them into steps, normally 1/12 volt which can then be used by VCOs to play "in tune"
cLee's goal was to create an updated version of the Serge Quantizer, which he'd always lusted after but never had.
This Quantizer includes 8 independent channels of quantizing which share common SCALE. BANK and HOLD/SAMPLE AND HOLD controls
This quantizer is capable of 24 notes/octave, allowing for quartertone scales.
There are 8 channels of quantizing.
Each channel is independent, but shares the scale and hold/S&H settings.
Scales are arranged in 2 banks of 16 each.
Both bank selection and scale selection are voltage controllable.
Hold/S&H has 2 modes which are switch selected. In hold mode VC will cause the quantizer to hold its outputs regardless of what is at its inputs. In S&H mode a voltage greater than the treshold will cause the Quantizer to sample its inputs, which will then be held until the next time the threshold is passed.
A Trigger pulse is output at PULSE OUT when the S&H is triggered
8 channels of quantized voltages.
A maximum of 240 steps with 0 to 10 volts in, relating to 10 octaves of quarter tones
An LED shows when CHANNEL 1 is outputting the root note voltage of the selected scale.
PULSE OUT outputs a trigger pulse when the S&H is triggered
BANK SELECT: Switch and VC
SCALE SELECT: Knob and VC
HOLD voltage control with TRESHOLD pot
HOLD or S&H switch selectable
CHANNEL 8 INPUT GAIN (inverted unity to unity gain)
