The ADDAC214 VC Rotator is a stepped routing module for audio, CVs, gates and triggers! A typical VC switch can only switch one source to multiple destinations, or multiple sources to one destination but on the VC Rotator there is no such limitation! The same number of inputs and outputs exist, so instead of 4:1 or 1:4, this module always swaps 4 inputs to 4 outputs, and can also be patched for 2 to 2 and 3 to 3 step actions.
All four inputs get routed to the four outputs based on the CV and Clock controls. This is indicated in the following four (4) states:
1. routes all inputs to the same number output: 1:1, 2:2, 3:3, 4:4
2. routes all outputs to an offset of 1: 1:2, 2:3, 3:4, 4:1
3. routes all outputs to an offset of 2: 1:3, 2:4, 3:1, 4:2
4. routes all outputs to an offset of 3: 1:4, 2:1, 3:2, 4:3
The Direction parameter determines if the Clock input moves the rotation forward or backwards, while the Reset input resets the clock to the first step. Forward rotation can be set to 2, 3 or 4 steps by adjusting the Rotate offset knob, when moving backwards the module will always sync to 4 steps no matter where the Rotate knob is. Pendulum movements, external sequencing and other complex CV actions can be achieved using the CV input and dedicated attenuverter.
