Gearbox

1U clock source. The Gearbox produces a 0-5V square wave, at frequencies from around 100mhz up to 500hz, across three ‘gears’ or frequency ranges. An RGB LED blinks in time with the clock output, changing its colour to reflect which gear the module is in.

Usage ideas

  • Clock a sequencer using the Gearbox.
  • Connect the Gearbox to a mult to send the same clock to multiple parts of the system
  • Use the Gearbox at high frequencies as a modulation source - for instance, into the CV of a VCA, or into an effect control such as the Freeze input on a Mutable Instruments Clouds, to create rapid effects changes.
  • Use the Gearbox at low frequencies as square wave LFO.
