The Varigate 8+ features eight channels of gates, each with up to 16 steps. In addition there are two quantized 1V/octave channels which can be independent or linked to any gate channels.
Up to 100 presets can be saved and 10 different song banks are programmeble by chosing any sequence of presets. Per bank a musical scale can be programmed.
Per step you can program note and glide. All step parameters can be randomized within a given range. The Freeze gate input turns random sequences into static sequences while active.
Gate channels are programmed using both sliders and buttons.
Functions per channel:
- direction: forward, reverse, pendulum and random.
- control of Probability, Repeat, Delay and Pulsewidth
- Individual clock multiplier, divider and sequence length
Mute allows for muting a channel or a pattern. Random gate input will apply variations to a pattern. The module has an internal clock generator with clock output socket and a tempo control knob as well as a clock input for synchronization. A clear function is useful for clearing channels and parameter settings. Reset is possbile as well of course.
