CGS06 Burst Generator


Rhythm and timing accessory which generates a burst of gate or trigger pulses

Cat Girl Synthesizer CGS06 Burst Generator built by Lower West Side Studio

This module is a rhythm and timing accessory. It generates a burst of gate or trigger pulses at various speeds as set from a front panel control.

At higher speeds it can be used for washboard, maracas or similar rapid-burst percussive effects when connected to the appropriate sound generating device such as a ringing oscillator.

At lower speeds it can be used to step a sequencer a certain number of steps or retrigger an envelope shaper. The output pulses are quite narrow when the specified component values are used, and would best be described as trigger pulses in synths that distinguish gates from triggers. Our build of this module includes a Pulse Width adjustment knob for subtle changes to the output.

Here is a summary of the Inputs, Outputs and Controls;

External Clock – Normalized to the internal clock, but can be overridden by plugging in an external signal. Waveshape is not critical, as long as the waveform passes the trigger point.
Trigger – Input for the external signal needed to start the event. Waveshape is not critical, as long as the waveform passes the trigger point.
Pulses – Output for the burst event.
Trigger Out – Output for the trigger signal derived from the Trigger input.
Event Duration – Output. Goes high for the duration of the event. i.e. for the period the Pulses output is active
End Out Output – Goes high when the burst event is over. This can be used to trigger another module if you wish to cascade them.
Clock Speed – The rate at which the internal clock runs.
Range – High and low range for the internal clock.
Pulses – Select between 1 and 9 pulses per event.
Width – Adjust Pulse Width
Retrigger – When the switch is closed, the unit cannot be retriggered during an event.
