ARP Sequencer Model 1601

   (0 reviews)

The ARP Sequencer, model 1601, is a 16 step sequential voltage generator. A voltage level slider is provided for each of the 16 steps to adjust the voltage output from 0 to +10 volts. The sequencer may be used in a "8x2" mode so that outputs 1 through 8 (bank A) and 9 through 16 (bank B) sequence in parallel. The Outputs of banks A and B are pre-wired to a voltage quantizer which effectively "rounds off" the sequencers voltage to the nearest whole twelfth of a volt. This allows precise tuning since all ARP products are tuned to a 1 volt per octave standard (1/2 volt per semitone).

A low frequency voltage controlled clock governs the stepping speed of the sequencer and can be started, stopped, gated, or sped up either manually or externally.

Position gates provide a constant voltage output (+10 volts) for as long as the sequencer is on a selected position. The position gate outputs are bused to one of the position gate outputs (Gate 1,2 or 3).
