Q963WF Width Feature Cable

return to modulesReturn to Modules

Trigger (Gate) outputs of the Q960 Sequencer have a 100% duty cycle meaning they stay on the entire time their stage is on. When using the Q963 trigger bus, adjacent triggers combine into one long trigger. The Q963WF Width Feature cable creates individual triggers by limiting their duty cycle to that of the Q960's internal oscillator which is 90%.

Side Effect
If the Q960's internal oscillator is OFF, this will drive the Q963's outputs OFF. This means that if you trigger the Q960 externally using the Shift input, and you have the Q960wf cable installed, the Q963 outputs will stay OFF.

Another way to create distinct trigger outputs when combining them using a Q961 or Q963 is to use a Q128 Switch to perform a logical AND. This is described at the bottom of the Q963 page.

Installation consists of clipping one side of the cable to a chip on the Q960 Sequential controller, and the other 2 clips to wires on the Q963 Trigger Bus.

Clip the long wire to pin 8 of U15 on the Q960

Clip the 2 short wires to the output jacks of the Q963
