Each of the three arcade buttons generates a 10V gate at it's according output, even when the module is not recording i.e. you can use it as a triple manual gate ... well the module can do so much more:
Let's start with the recording: Press REC button and let's go. The recording starts not before a channel button has been pressed. Stop recording by depessing REC one more time. The loop will play instantly.
You can overdub the recording: press REC while the loop is playing, hit the channel buttons and press REC again.
You can also do momentary punch-in recording at certain poínts of the recording, e.g. to record single notes. Press and hold REC while you are playing and stop punch-in recording by letting go the REC button.
Add drum rolls by pressing the roll button and playing a channel button. The unquantized roll rate can be set with a potentiometer and modulated by CVs (0-5V)
Retrigger rewinds the playback to it's beginning. Play/Pause, Retrigger and Roll can be activated by gate signals as well.
ALT button allows for further functions:
- Mute: press ALT and press the according channel button to mute it.
- turn drum rolls on or off: press ALT and double-tap the channel button.
- change clock pulse width: press ALT and turn the roll rate potentiometer.
The module derives a clock from the length of the recording which is visualized by eight LEDs as bars and beats.
Influence the generated clock with the "tempo" and "clock division" parameters. Attention: these potentiometers' positions are recorded as well! If you want to fine-tune the tempo both up and down: just set the tempo pot to center position when recording. Both parameters can be voltage controlled with CVs from 0V to 5V.
A pity that you can't synchronize the recorded sequence to a clock, that would be ideal. But considered as intuitive tactile master clock generator and pattern recorder the Tri-Ger is great and unique.
Multiple Tri-Gers are infinitely chainable. When chained, the slave unit's loop duration, tempo, and playback state will be synced to the host unit. This allows for 3 more channels per every additional slave Tri-ger. This is done by reconfiguring jumpers and connecting a cable from the host unit to the slave unit on the back of each module.
