Q962 Sequential Switch

Q962 Sequential Switch

The Q962 Sequential Switch provides the functionality of a Moog 962 which includes converting the Q960 Sequential Controller to a full 24 stages by alternately selecting one of three rows. The Q962 can also be used as a general purpose latch, shifter, and signal selector among other logic functions.

Stages can be selected with a manual push-button, a trigger input, or with the shift input. A lamp and trigger output is activated when a stage is On. A signal selector section switches one of 3 input signals to a common output determined by which stage is selected. This 3-to-1 switch can also be used in the reverse direction, as a 1-to-3 switch.

The Q962 circuit board has a tribute to Bob Moog.

Basics
The Q962 is basically a 3-stage sequencer with a 3-to-1 signal switch.

The Q962 will operate as a 2-stage shifter unless a plug is inserted into signal input #3 which selects 3-stage operation.

The primary function of the Q962 is to select the rows of a Q960 sequential controller to emulate a 24-stage sequencer. This is accomplished by patching a trigger output from the Q960 to the shift input on the Q962. Then each of the 3 rows on the Q960 are patched into the 3 signal inputs on the Q962. The signal output on the Q962 now becomes the 24-stage voltage output.

Unlike the Moog 962, the Q962's signal switch section can operate in both directions. This allows one signal to be directed to 3 different places.

Single/Double Shift Jumper
A 3-pin connector on the circuit board is jumpered at the factory for Single-Shift operation: every shift signal generates a shift of stages. Move this jumper to the other position (or add a switch) to invoke Double-Shift mode. In Double-Shift mode, the Q962 will shift every other time.
