The SparkPunk Sequencer – A $60 DIY Control Voltage Sequencer Kit


The SparkPunk Sequencer is a musical control voltage sequencer designed to control the DIY SparkPunk Sound Kit. But the sequencer kit is also designed to support connecting it to other control voltage hardware.

The SparkPunk Sequencer cycles among ten steps, reading the slider and switch for each, and producing corresponding analog voltages on the output pins. The kit offers many mod opportunities – like adjusting Sequence length by connecting solder pads together at the bottom right of the PCB, routing pins to make a one-shot sequence playback, even creating a tempo clock or influencing the analog signals of LEDs.

Here’s a video introduction to the SparkPunk Sequencer Kit:

Sparkfun has published a Theory and Applications Guide for the Sequencer Kit that explains how the sequencer works and also details several useful mods. Mods include adjustable sequence length, CV out for standard analog gear, synchronizing sequencers and more.

Note: The Sparkfun Sequencer is a solderable kit with lots of parts.

The Sparkfun Sequencer Kit is available for US $59.95. You can use promo code RETROSPARK to get $10 off your order of $40 or more through 8/31/14 at 11:59 p.m. MT.
