Gatestorm_ Steady State Fate SSF

590 EUR / In stock.

GateStorm, a collaborative module from Erogenous Tones and Steady State Fate, is designed to be an advanced Gate Generator with a highly flexible CV system with as much depth as you are willing to go. GateStorm was designed to be fun, intuitive, and more importantly, powerful. Don't be overwhelmed by how much information is shown to you on it's integrated display, once you start using it, you will see just how important and useful seeing that much information becomes.

Overall Features:

8 Gate Generators (4 Complex Lanes & 4 Simple Lanes)
7 Gate Inputs
1 Clock Input for Syncing GateStorm to an external clock
Includes TAP TEMPO button as well
4 Local Gate Inputs
2 Global Gate Inputs (1 with integrated button to use when not patched)
6 CV Inputs with Attenuator (Normalized to DC voltage)
8 Gate Outputs (0-10V) with Integrated White LEDs
320×240 High Contrast LCD screen
1 Rotary Encoder with Pushbutton for Data Entry
15 Buttons for Various Parameter Entry
USB connection on rear for Firmware Updating
24 HP
Skiff Friendly (Very shallow)
Power: +12v/-12v
Based on ChibiOS RTOS

Common Features for Lanes:

Time base settings from /16 to *16 off master clock rate
Pulse Width settings form 1/32 to 1/1 (1/32 can be used for trigger)
Sync or Free running
Sync mode means changes ONLY occur at master clock boundaries

Complex Lane Features:

1-16 Step Length
Forward, Backwards, Palindrome or One-Shot Operation

Simple Lane Features:

Clk Density Function (Full Clock, or between 0% to 95% random)
Logic Operations with ALL 8 Channels
Invert any channel
AND, NAND, OR, NOR, XOR, XNOR
Fully Customizable CV Matrix (Any CV to any INDIVIDUAL Lane Parameters:
Common Lane CV/Gate Destinations:
Pulse Width
Time Base
Global Reset Trigger
Global Random Trigger
Global Transport Pause

Complex Lane CV/Gate Destinations:

Rotate Steps
Length Steps
Local Trigger Reset
Local Trigger Random

Simple Lane CV/Gate Destinations:

Logic Mode
Source A
Source B
Density

Global CV/Gate Destinations (Outside of Single Lane Settings):

Rotate Outputs (Also has output locking to prevent certain lanes from rotating)
Preset Changing
CVBus (Used Mungo/MacroMachines Mechanism)
Absolute CV Value (Preset 1-8)
Incremental CV Value (Steps presets, 1,2,3,4 in circle, wraps around)
Global Trigger Reset (Resets ALL lanes)
Global Trigger Random (Randomizes ALL lanes)
Global Trigger Pause (Pauses Only Lanes with Pause Active)

Additional Features of Note:

10 to 400 BPM
16 Banks of 8 Presets Each (Last Bank Used Loads on Restart)
Shallow Menus, All Functions Labelled (Most 2 deep)
Template System (8 Templates) for Creating Custom Starting Points
Template 1 is used as Reset Values for System
Macro functions to speed up making changes (or copying values across lanes)
Global operations to change settings for all lanes at once.
Transport control for stop/start/pause on selected lanes
Lanes can be muted from one of the menus

Random system PER patch, FULLY flexible PER lane:

Complex Lane Steps can be Full random, Euclidean or Euclidean with Offset.
Random Setting Matrix Page makes for easy visual of random settings
Random constraint system allows controlling WHICH enumerated random values are selected from.
Mod Matrix page shows ALL modulations (in real time) for easier configuration
CV graph on main page for easily seeing CV values coming in unmodified
CV value range of effect can be set PER modulation, both positive OR negative
Entire CV/Trig system can be disabled for making changes and not having the system changing 
modulations like patch switching at the same time.

System Settings:

Built in System clock divider to handle faster system clocks
Clock averaging settings (takes multiple samples) smooths out syncing of the clock (can do 1, 2, 4 or 8 samples)
ADC Smoothing, Slewing and Hysteresis System. Can be tuned for user expectation.
