Division 6 DUAL MINI SEQUENCER


A few pics of my new Division 6 DUAL MINI SEQUENCER!!! Two racked shots below.

I am looking forward to giving this one a go this weekend. It's a dual 16 step sequencer that can run each sequence either independently or linked. Each one has a five octave range and offers an accent out, which should be very interesting in adding that extra dynamic to sequences.

The following is a recap on what these can do via the Division 6 website, for those that missed the announcement back in March:

"Why would you need more than one sequencer? Why would you need mini sequencers?

More sequencers = more steps
Use one for playing notes and the other for transposing those notes
Can be used as a clock divider
Run in parallel for multiple CVs / triggers
Each one gives you the standard CV and gate out, plus an ACC out (Accent? Accessory?) Use it to open up a filter, enable a glide, trigger a drum, or whatever you can think of.

The two sequencers will run completely independently, or you can daisy-chain them using the XP IN/OUT jacks to create sequences of any length.

Each sequencer has its own internal clock to get you up and running in a hurry, but you can connect an external clock if you need greater control of tempo or want to sync with other devices.

The module stores your latest sequence even when the power has been removed.

While this kit is designed to give you a Eurorack module, the PCB patterns for the jacks also have holes that will accept Johnson/Cinch-style banana jacks. There are also standoff holes on the main PCB, so you can mount them behind your own custom panel.

This module has lots of LEDs and is very shiny, but only two of them are ever on at a time which keeps it from loading down your power supply.

Inputs

CLK IN (External clock input)

XP IN (Expansion input; Starts sequencer back at step 1. Use for daisy-chaining multiple units)
Outputs

XP OUT (Sends pulse when sequencer goes past last step. Use for daisy-chaining multiple units)

CV OUT
GATE OUT
ACC OUT (Can be programmed on or off in each sequence step)


Features

CV OUT covers 5 octaves, and can be tuned using front-accessible trim pot

Sequences can be set to any length up to 16 steps by using LOOP feature

Setting a step to REST holds previous pitch and doesn't fire GATE

In Standby mode, sequencer can be used as a tiny keyboard without altering programmed sequences

Power supply: +/-12VDC (reverse-polarity protected!).
Power supply (Optional): +/-15VDC
Current draw: 30ma(+12V) / 0ma(-12V) / 0ma (+5)
Width: 18HP
Depth: 0.83in / 21mm
Includes

Main PCB
Panel PCB
Preprogrammed Microcontrollers
All required parts to build kit
Doepfer-style Power Cable
(4) M3 x 6mm Rack Screws w/ Nylon Washers"
