Synthrotek has introduced the Voice of Saturn 5U Sequencer – a 10-step analog sequencer. The output control voltage and trigger signals can be used to control pitch, filters, drum triggers and an endless number of other parameters on other synths.

It is housed in a 5U panel with an optional hand-made hickory case.

Features:

  • 10 steps, sequence can be shortened by connecting 1/8″ cable from step to reset jack
  • Voltage Out from 0 to ~7.5V
  • Gate out and S-Trigger out for older Moogs
  • Clock input / output to connect multiple sequencers (for sync’ing, not extending sequence)
  • Choose your power type: 9V jack/battery clip (power brick not included), Synthesizers.com, MOTM-4, MOTM-6, or Modcan
  • Hold Switch pauses sequence, manually steps when clock is off 9V Battery or Power Supply (AC or DC 12V)

  • Improved graphic performance on most controls & app switching (50% less CPU).
  • Device panel allowing individual device(network, virtual, midi interface or app) setting of active(on/off), midi clock(active) & latency.
  • Latency per interface from 0 to 1000ms for manual synchronisation control on external equipment and slow apps
  • File save/load/rename/delete of working bank = named file of 20 snapshots + user entered description
  • Skip buttons brings up moveable panel for easy changes during play
  • Introduced note conform to scales (chromatic, major & harmonic minor ascending) with enharmonic note names.
  • Increased gate% to 400 to allow extended note on (and therefore overlapping note play, longer/shorter ornaments etc)
  • Clock multipler – now shows all 4 options at once for multiples.
  • Ability to draw controls using swipe and instant place using double tap (both optional via settings).
