A-155 Analog/Trigger Sequencer Vintage Edition

Analog and Trigger Sequencer, 2 rows of 8 steps with knobs and 2 rows of 8 steps switches

  • Features of the analog rows (knobs):

    • 8 potentiometers (knobs)
    • lower row: Scale (knob), voltage output range 0 ... ~ +6,5V
    • upper row: 1V/2V/4V (octave range switch for exact VCO control), voltage output ranges 0 ...1.0V / 0 ...2.0V / 0 ...4.0V
    • Glide time (knob), same as portamento or slew limiter
    • Glide Control (control input for switching glide on/off)
    • S&H Control (control input for internal S&H, works like A-148)
    • Pre Glide/S&H-Out (analog output before S&H and glide unit, especially required when external audio signals are used as inputs of the lower row)
    • Post Glide/S&H-Out (analog output after S&H and glide unit)
    • lower row: external inputs for the 8 steps (switched jack sockets), control signals or audio signals may be used as inputs (allowed voltage range -5V...+12V), the knobs of the lower row are working in this case as attenuators

    Features of the trigger rows (switches):

    • 4 Trigger/Gate tracks with 2 rows of switches
      toggle switches of 1-0-1 type (with middle position), which can be used to send a trigger/gate to the track above or below or to send no trigger/gate (middle position)
    • 3 trigger rows (i.e. short pulse for each step set, pulse width corresponds to the pulse width of the clock/step input signal)
    • 1 gate row (i.e. a high signal is applied during the length of the step set)

    Control inputs and buttons:

    • Step (defines the tempo of the sequence, same as clock or trigger input)
    • Reset (resets all rows to step 1)
    • Start (starts the sequence at the momentary position)
    • Stop (stops the sequence at the momentary position)

    Step and Reset are compatible to the MIDI interface A-190, i.e. in combination with the A-190 the A-155 may be synchronized via MIDI. The quantizing module A-156 can be used to quantize the infinite analog voltages coming from A-155 into discrete semitone steps (multiples of 1/12V). Without MIDI interface e.g. a LFO rectangle output can be used to define the tempo of the sequence.
    The sequencer controller A-154 adds a lot of new functions to the A-155 (e.g. voltage controlled addressing, forward/backward/pendulum/random mode, voltage control of first and last step, voltage controlled clock and gate length, step skipping, combination of several A-155 in parallel/serial mode and many more).
