This is an awesome and flexible take on the Serge/CGS Programmer by Beautiful Pieces of Outdated Technology in banana format. Can do all sorts of awesome sequencing with interesting tricks up its sleeve beyond the normal programmer.

Excellent condition, only selling as just found a TKB and need to make room.  Does not include PSU, but you can grab one easily: +12V DC (centre positive) 2.1mm barrel inlet (PSU not included

From the BPoOT:

The Programmer itself features 4 rows of 16 steps. Step count can be limited by either patching step address outputs (first row of jacks) into step address inputs (second row of jacks), or by using the Skip function of the step behaviour toggle switches. Rows can be multiplexed externally for step counts up to 64. The steps can be clocked through either forward or backward, and these can be patched simultaneously to different clock sources to create interesting rhythmic patterns. Each step features a push-button which will immediately send the Programmer to that step, and two step behaviour toggle switches. The behaviour can be set independently for both forward and backward clocking, and allows for normal clocking per step, stop clocking before the step and for steps to be skipped. This means, for example, that a 4 step sequence could be set-up for forward clocking, and a completely different 8 step sequence could be enabled for backward clocking. The Programmer also features pulse outputs for the push-buttons, and for the switchable trigger row adjacent to the step address outputs.

The circuit board itself is a design I have made from Ken Stone's circuit diagrams, with some small modifications and additions myself. The surface mount assembly is carried out using a pick-and-place machine and soldered using a reflow oven. Once the hand assembly is carried out, the Programmer is fully tested to ensure everything works before dispatch.

Fully assembled units are housed in a  - these have a tendency to arrive from the supplier pretty scratched up, sorry! - and are powered from a +12V DC (centre positive) 2.1mm barrel inlet (PSU not included).
