Synthetic Sound Labs Upgrades Sequencer

Synthetic Sound Labs has released the new 2 MU width 1651 Mini Sequencer II module - an upgraded version of its 1650 Sequencer. Here's the full details supplied by the company...

 Feature enhancements include:
    •    7 sequence memories
    •    5 song memories (string sequences together)
    •    SLUR- change pitch between steps without firing gate
    •    Variable gate timing (including ratcheting)
    •    ACC can be set to drop or not drop between steps, or follow gate timing for that step
    •    Auto-advance step when programming
    •    Live transpose (use the keyboard to shift entire sequence up or down while running)
    •    Live edit (buttons you push while running get saved to the sequence)
    •    1X mode (disable to use XP IN as a reset without requiring an external gate mixer)
    •    Clock out (use ACC out jack to output clock if using internal clock)

The 1651 provides standard CV and gate outputs, plus an ACC gate output out (Accent? Accessory?)  The ACC output can be used to open up a filter, enable a glide, trigger a drum, and more.
It provides an internal clock to get you up and running in a hurry, but you can connect an external clock for greater control of tempo or syncing with other devices.
The module can store up to 5 songs of 16 sequences each, and 7 sequences of up to 16 steps each.

    •    CLOCK IN (External clock input)
    •    START IN (Expansion input; Starts sequencer back at step 1. Use for daisy-chaining multiple units)

    •    END OUT (Sends pulse when sequencer goes past last step. Use for daisy-chaining multiple units)
    •    ACC OUT (Can be programmed on or off in each sequence step)
    •    PULSE OUT
    •    CV OUT

    •    CV OUT covers 5 octaves
    •    Sequences can be set to any length up to 16 steps by using LOOP feature
    •    Setting a step to REST holds previous pitch and doesn't fire PULSE out
    •    Setting a step to SLUR changes to the new CV and doesn't fire the PULSE out
    •    In Standby mode, sequencer can be used as a tiny keyboard without altering programmed sequences
    •    7 sequence memories with up to 16 steps per sequence.
    •    5 song memories string up to 16 sequences together
    •    Live transpose
    •    Much more...

You can cascade multiple 1651's to create longer, more complex and syncopated patterns.  Why would you need more than one sequencer?
    •    More sequencers = more steps
    •    Use one for playing notes and the other for transposing those notes
    •    Can be used as a clock divider
    •    Run in parallel for multiple CVs / triggers

Cascaded sequencers can run completely independently, or in daisy-chain them using the START IN / END OUT jacks to create sequences of any length.
