An unusual, because non-linear sequencer concept. The eight steps can be addressed in a number of ways: by several trigger signals which go one or more steps forward or backward, by using control voltages or even with three binary gates. A control voltage input is included as well, either transponsing the pitch quantized / non-quantized or or even to change the quantiser's scale from major to minor.



  • The voltage range of the sequence can be selected between 1, 2, and 5 Volt (equals 1, 2 or 5 octaves)
  • The modulation destination for the CV input is assignable: transpose, quantized transpose, offset, reset offset, trigger steps, invert steps, random step etc.
  • Each step can generate a gate signal at the GATE output. The gate time is adjustable
  • Quantiser with variuos scales: chromatic, diatonic, pentatonic, blues, 7th chord and 5th chord.
  • Slide can be activated per step. The slide time can be adjusted and voltage controlled, too.
  • Trigger inputs A and B are used to move through the pattern. Each input can move 1, 2 or 4 steps, either forward or backward.
  • reset input with priority settings for trigger and reset
  • Connect in dual mode two Popcorns to get a 16-step sequencer.
