Malekko - Quad Gate Delay


The Quad Gate Delay is a four-channel, partly voltage-controllable rhythm generator with delay logic. The circuit can be used free-running or synchronized, including a quantization option. Three different routing types open up a wide range of applications. Simple trigger or gate sequences can be transformed into complex rhythm structures in a few easy steps.



The Quad Gate Delay features four channels. Each of them is equipped with a signal input, a delay stage editable via a potentiometer and an output. Additionally, there is a Mix connector, which emits the sum of all four channels. Three routing modes are available, which you can choose from via a switch:

  • Mode 1: All channels work independently from each other, meaning each signal path processes voltages present at its input only.
  • Mode 2: Signals fed to the module via the first input are routed to all four delay stages and outputs.
  • Mode 3: The outputs of the first to third channel are normalized to the input of the respectively subsequent signal path. Thus, a sequence can be delayed up to four times. In-between stages are emitted by the individual output of each channel.

CV inputs allow you to influence the delay times of the first two channels via external control voltages. The modulation paths accept unipolar signals in the range from 0 V to +5 V. A clock input can be used to synchronize the Quad Gate Delay with other equipment. Three timing modes are available, in detail:

  • Mode 1: Free-running mode of operation. The delay time is set in milliseconds. Maximum Value: One second.
  • Mode 2: Synchronized, but not quantized mode of operation. The delay time is set in milliseconds. Maximum value: One bar.
  • Mode 3: Synchronized, quantized mode of operation. The delay time is set in 1/16 notes. Maximum value: One bar.
