About This Listing

The SSL 1610 V-Gates has a powerful combination of features for your
clocking and gating pleasure. In fact, there are well over 300
variations of gates, functions and modes. And many of these functions
can be voltage controlled!

Analog Knobs on a Digital Gate?

Absolutely! You bet! Although knobs might seem to make more sense for
analog, with digital functions the knobs actually allow very versatile
selections of what we call “Sub-Functions”. These sub-functions allow
you to adjust how the gate outputs react with the input clock, among
other things.

Modes, Functions and Sub-Functions

The 1610 has two Modes – analog & digital – each with three
Functions. Functions (and sub-functions) allow control over how the
outputs respond to the input. Sub-functions in digital mode, allow the
outputs to selectively follow the input pulse width and control up/down

Sub-functions in analog mode, controls the number of outputs affected
by the input CV. In Analog mode, the 1610 follows an input control
voltage (CV) to produce unique combinations of output gate signals.
Binary, Step and Slope functions are available. A clock output is
available that produces a 1 millisecond (ms) pulse for each change of
output state.

In Digital mode, the outputs change in step with the input clock.
Binary, Step and Randon functions are available. This makes the 1610
very useful in creating rhythmic patterns, as well as random (no
patterns) outputs. The outputs respond from DC to over 400 Hz, although
<60 Hz is recommended. Sharp input slopes, such as a square wave, are
recommended for accurate timing. A reset input may be used to return
the output stages to in initial state.

Soft blue LEDs display the output states. The Initial and external CV
input controls respond linearly. Knobs are conveniently placed to allow
ample room for manual adjustment. Top quality 1/8” jacks permit smooth,
effortless patching. Quality, solder masked, fiberglass-epoxy printed
circuit boards with precision computer controlled part placement and
meticulous hand-crafted assembly assure years of trouble-free service.

So ask us what’s happening, and we’ll tell you “V-Gates”.
