Analogue Systems RS-260 Quantiser

Overview

This quantiser module corrects voltages according to the chromatic semitone scale i.e. one Volt is divided into 12 voltage steps of same size (1/12 V). The input voltage will be adjusted to the next semitone step. This is handy when you want to play tonally with your sequencer, sample and hold or any voltage generator. Beyond this the RS-260 allows for transposition and has two operation modes.

Details

The module can quantize over a range of five octaves, e.g. it allows voltages in the range of 0-5V, including both input voltages that are mixed linearly.

The offset control sets a fixed transposition of maximum 2 octaves (0-2V); a separate CV input makes transposing by a voltage possible, for example to transpose the quantised sequence.

There are two operation modes: FREE RUN and GATE:

  • In free run mode the quantisation takes place when the change of voltages at the input(s) changes enough to move from one semitone to another.
  • The gate mode the module will quantise only when it receives a pulse (or a trigger as the rising slope is detected) and the quantised value will be held until the next trigger is received.

As soon as a quantisation takes place a trigger will be output at the according socket. In gate mode this happens of course only when a gate/trigger is received. The quantised signal is present at the output socket, triggers and gates will be visualised by LEDs.

Usage with Eurorack:
Analogue Systems' modules are designed solely for use in cases and cabinets made by Analogue Systems. Through the use of adaptors or adaptor cables, however, it is possible to connect them to Eurorack cases.
Should you chose to use an Analogue Systems module in an Eurorack case, please note that the warranties are thus void and the use occurs at your own risk! If the module is plugged in incorrectly and therefore damaged the customer has to bear any costs for repair and shipping!

Because of the different position of the mounting holes there will be a gap of 0.5HP (= 2.5 mm) when mounting an Analogue Systems module next to a Eurorack module. Take this into consideration when planning your system. Gaps can be covered with 1.5HP wide blank panels by Doepfer.
