Computers and software have a clear advantage when it comes to creating complex and precise sequences. But the experience of intervening easily in a sequence and being able to play it directly is the strength of analogue sequencers and the R24 is a definetely a flagship in this field.
Originally designed as a desktop unit, the R24 can also be built and powered in Dot.com/COTK/Moon Modular compatible housings. Ex works it comes with very nicely crafted wooden side parts (...and high quality potentiometers, switches and sockets)
- Sequencer Modes: 3*8 or 1*16 + 1*8 or 1*24 steps total length
- Playback direction, clock speed and sequencer mode can be CV-controlled
- Two gate outputs assignable to individual steps. Gate outputs for the first and last step of a row
- Order of steps, number of repetitions, divider factor and transposition are CV-controllable. Quantizer, portamento and legato can be added.
- Steps can be played normally, skipped or defined as the last step of a row
- The value range of the CV controls can be scaled by a factor of 2/4/16, Glide/Portamento time is set per row
- Assignment of gates to gate output 1 or 2 (or gate: off), ratcheting (fast repetition of steps)
Even though the concept is fully "analog", there is a preset memory for sequences that holds 64 presets.
An ideal partner is GRP's own A2 synthesizer, but the voltage ranges also make it fully compatible with Eurorack and the above mentioned 5U systems anyway. It also "speaks" MIDI and so the R24 can play a central role in many studios.
