Pittsburgh Modular Intros Game System Module Step Sequencer

game-system-sequencerPittsburgh Modular has introduced the Game System – a new Eurorack module that is packed with six different multi-mode sequencers and a fully voltage controllable user interface.

Each game represents a different type of sequencing, from classic step sequencers, to unique multi-dimensional clock dividers, to chaotic gate generators.

According to Pittsburgh, “Individual sequencers in the Game System would make great standalone modules. Bundled together, they offer an entire arcade of sequencing options.”

Unique Controls

The Game System uses a thumb joystick and button press interface for fast navigation of the sequencers. Joystick movements and button presses are voltage controllable, inviting external CV and gate signals to take control of the gaming experience.

The Game System can also be computer controlled.

Here’s an overview of Game System from PM’s Richard Nikol: Continue reading
