The 4MS QCD Expander is a powerful expansion module for the Quad Clock Distributor. The module adds extensive new features to the QCD, going as far as to transform the module into a non-linear sequencer. Each of the expander’s channels features a pulse width input and dedicated knob, and an output jack with three different modes. The module can be self-patched to achieve changing rhythms, swing and shuffle patterns, and greater control over the QCD’s standard features.
QCD Expander Features
Multi-mode output jack INV OUT mirrors the tempo of main QCD output
Mode Switch for each INV OUT jack:
Delayed Trigger Mode
Inverted Gate Mode
Shuffle Mode (delayed + original trigger)
PW/Delay knob controls trigger delay time on INV OUT jack (or pulse width in Inverted Gate Mode)
Also controls Pulse Width of main QCD OUT jack
CV input jack for external control
Attenuverter allows for one channel to precisely modulate another channel's delay or pulse width
Div/Mult CV attenuator knob
Controls how much the signal on the main QCD's Div/Mult CV jack will modulate the tempo
Useful for precisely modulating the speed of one channel with another
A global LED brightness trimpot is accessible from the front panel.
