Binary inputs allow for starting or stopping the sequencer, for changing the running direction and for resetting the unit by a gate or a switching voltage of 1V.
The touch-gate input is Brain's only output and outputs a gate signal whenever a touchpad is touched.
The touch-clock input has a dual purpose:
- Without a master clock applied to the main clock input, events generated by hitting the touchplates will be synchronized in time to the touch-clock.
- With master clock and when playing the touchpads a new sequence is generated where the length and timing is depending of the relationship of the Touch-Clock to the Master Clock. Even divisions of the master clock will produces tame variations of the main sequence. Non-synchronized clocks will produce unpredictable results.
Brains only needs ground and +12V to operate so besides using the usual Eurorack power distribution you can connect Brains to a external wall wart too.
