The primary goal of this sequencer is to have a maximum amount of artist controlled musical variation, with a minimum amount of data input. There are no menus, ALL editing is done real-time, and thus, the programming of René becomes a key performance element.
"Cartesian sequencer," "geometric sequencer," "planular sequencer," "axis sequencer," "non-linear sequential tuned voltage map,” all of these would be good descriptions for René.
René has up to 4 clock inputs and 2 CV inputs which may be used simultaneously to achieve complex, musical patterns output in the form of quantized voltages, non-quantized voltages and two gate/ pulse streams.
As the module can be somewhat complicated in the beginning we highly advice to read the operation manual!
inputs: X-Clock, X-Mod and X-CV, Y-Clock, Y-Mod and Y-CV
outputs: Quantized CV out, CV out, Gate-X out, Gate-Y out
3U Eurorack module, 34HP wide, 29mm deep.
current draw 80mA @ +12V and 0mA @ -12V. The module does not need +5V, in contrary to what many people assume. René needs only ground and +12V so it can be also powered by an external wall wart power supply.
