Tenderfoot Electronics Quad Quantizer
The Tenderfoot Quad Quantizer is a four-channel quantizer that has both built-in scales and the ability to input your own custom scales. It's perfect for constraining sequences, random voltages, and other modulation sources to musical scales. It has 12 pre-programmed scales and key transpositions.
The notes that the Quad Quantizer will snap to are indicated by the LEDs, arranged in a piano key-style layout. The scales and transposition of the quantization can be selected via the dials or with control voltage. When using CV, the corresponding knobs act as attenuators and control the depth of modulation. Custom scales can be entered using the encoder and left button, which adds or deletes highlighted notes from the current scale. Custom scales can be saved in the quick memory and recalled using the right button. The right button is also responsible for clearing the currently selected scale to start over the quantization from scratch.
Each channel has a CV and trigger input and CV and trigger output. The signal present at the CV input will be quantized to the selected scale and output at the CV output as a quantized voltage. The trigger inputs allow you to basically sample and hold the quantized signal. It will only change notes when it receives a trigger signal at the input and then hold that CV value until it gets another trigger signal. Left unpatched, the CV change will be continuous. The trigger output on the other hand will output a trigger signal every time a new CV value is produced at the CV output.
The Quad Quantizer is a useful tool for making up to four interrelated quantized melodies and provides a simple and intuitive interface.
