MFOS 16-Step Rotary Analog Sequencer Controller


Published on May 18, 2020 djthomaswhite

"Here is my Music From Outer Space sequencer controller. This is the original CNC machined rotary label design I created way back when and is the same unit pictured on Ray’s legacy website (R.I.P. Ray, we miss ya brother). The core sequencer is Ray’s Classic 16-Step design and include some bonuses. The first bonus is the addition of 16 additional voltage pots and outputs raft sequence in time with the main internal clock. Changes to the main sequence length effect this expansion unit too. There are also two MFOS quantizer units with incredibly flexible and immediate scaling. Lastly there is a Catgirl Synth CGS Burst Generator to create bursts of triggers allowing you to slow you main sequence way down and use set trigger pulses to extend your performances very much like modern micro step sequencing a la the OP-Z or Elektron Gear but in a purely analog world here. The unit is stand alone and includes a Synthesis Technology 900 linear Power One power supply for precision voltage operation. All you need is a power and latch cables to get started. 1 volt per octave, cV/Gate and USA voltage requirements. Converters needed if in Europe, Japan or elsewhere. I will be selling this one if a kind unit and hope for it to go to a caring creator who can utilize it to its potential. Built like a tank, 100% custom and cared for she’s looking for a new love. Are you her future keeper?"

"Here is my custom designed Music From Outer Space 16-step Analog Sequencer Controller. This is the original CNC machined rotary label design I created way back when and is the same unit pictured on Ray’s legacy website (R.I.P. Ray, we miss ya brother). The core sequencer is Ray’s Classic 16-Step sequencer design and include some bonuses. The basic design is 16-steps with gate switches per step, dual voltage outputs and selectable sequence modes.

The first bonus is the addition of 16 additional sequence control pots in an “infinity” layout with dual voltage outputs (pure/glide) that sequence in time with the main internal clock. Changes to the main sequence length and it mode affect this expansion unit too. Very useful for controlling volume or filter frequencies of your main sequence line.

There are also two MFOS quantizer units with incredibly flexible and immediate scaling. These can be used with the dual voltage outputs to create two sequences with different voltage scales from the single main sequencer. Or you can use the unquantized voltages from the two sequencers and use the secondary outs through the quantizers to create 4 separate scaled sequences at once.

Lastly there is a Catgirl Synth CGS Burst Generator to create bursts of triggers allowing you to slow you main sequence way down and use set trigger pulses to extend your performances very much like modern micro step sequencing a la the OP-Z or Elektron Gear but in a purely analog world here. Imagine each gate or trigger firing up to 9 pulses with a controllable pulse rate and the ability to send a final trigger at the end of each gate too.

The unit is a one-of-a-kind, stand alone artistic statement in design and includes a Synthesis Technology linear Power One power supply for precision voltage operation. All you need is a power and patch cables to get started. 1 volt per octave, CV/Gate and USA voltage requirements. Converters needed if in Europe, Japan or elsewhere. I am selling this one of a kind unit and hope for it to go to a caring creator who can utilize it to its potential. Built like a tank, 100% custom and cared for she’s looking for a new love. Are you her future keeper?

Built in the USA by djthomaswhite. See my ‘djthomaswhite' YouTube channel for videos showing this unit in action."
