Octal Clock Divider
M 565 v3
QUAD QUANTIZER featuring four independent quantizer circuits forces variable control voltages into semitone intervals (1/12 volt) over a bipolar input voltage range of more than twenty octaves (255 semitones).
Gate pulses fed into the “Gate In“- jack trigger the quantizer. An “open“ gate input quantizes, i. e. if no gate jacks are patched. The four gate-ins are passed through, one plugged IN 1 feeds IN 2 to IN 4 as well.
The gate outputs supply a pulse, when- ever the (quantized) output voltage changes. The most recent quantized value remains preserved until the next quantization will occur.
This module is also available as CP-size module (4 units wide).
M 565 D
The QUANTIZER CONTROLLER allows to limit the output voltages generated by the M 565 v3 Quad Quantizer to any desired key, chord or note interval. Using the array of 12 keyboard-like arranged LED buttons, notes can be activated or deactivated in any combination. Up to two M 565 D Quantizer Controller modules can be connected to a single M565v3. If only one M565D is connected, all 4 channels are forced to its settings.
If two M 565 D are connected channels 1 and 2 are controlled by the first and channels 3 and 4 by the second. Multiple quantization settings can be stored if a M 567 Universal Programmer is connected to the M 565 v3.
12 x12 Programmable Switch/Summer Matrix
The PROGRAMMABLE SWITCH/SUMMER MATRIX is a solution to manage the distribution and/or mixing of 12 by 12 DC-coupled and buffered inputs and outputs, fully analogue with a high precision signal path.
INPUT MODE: Routing/Distribution (off/on) or mixing signals (off/third/half/full)
LINK MODE: Inputs and outputs are paired to handle immediately a combination of e.g. the
CV and GATE outputs of a sequencer or a stereo audio signal.
PROGRAMMER: 99 memory locations with an independant edit buffer.
Sample and Hold
The M 528 module is a sample & hold circuit consisting of the following elements:
· The voltage controlled clock oscillator gates the sample circuit and doubles as a VCLFO with triangular and rectangular waveforms.
· External gate input
· Signal input can be the internal noise source (white noise and random voltage, both with separate output jacks) or an external sample signal.
· Dual voltage output jacks with switchable variable glide (portamento) control.
Reversible Modulation Matrix
The REVERSIBLE MODULATION MATRIX combines six attenuator-units, consisting of three elements each:
· 12 position input selector to choose one of 12 signal inputs
· reversible attenuator, which attenuates or amplifies the input signal in a range from -200 % to +200 %; in zero-position the signal is suppressed completely
· 12 position output selector to chose one of 12 signal outputs
The complete modulation matrix consists of three (or in one special case two) modules – the central active control unit M 592 and the sub-modules M 592i/592o with 12 in- and 12 output-jacks. The inputs are connected via switching jacks: one single modulation source can – without any extra patchcord – routed to several different outputs at once, via independent attenuators.

Moog CP form factor
M 544 CP
The M 544 CP UTILITY MODULE incorporates a couple of useful control voltage and logic functions.
· Two attenuators which double as
2-channel mixer and inverter
· Slew limiter
· Gate delay
· 3-input voltage summer/inverter
· 3-input gate summer/inverter
The UNIVERSAL PROGRAMMER MODULE enables the user to save and recall settings from the 568 sequencer, 565D quantizer controller and future modules. The 567 can save 2 x 8 settings in its non volatile memory.
Operation is simple. Via the push buttons the user selects one of 8 memory slots. Two memory banks are selected via the bank buttons. Four push buttons control the memory operations. With the lower “go to” buttons/ jacks one can step through memory positions in either direction, even by trigger pulses from external sources (or from a 568 itself).
This way extremely long trigger sequences could be made possible.
Octal Clock Divider
The OCTAL CLOCK DIVIDER combines 8 divider circuits in one module.
Each of the dividers offers twelve division factors:
1 · 2 · 3 · 4 · 5 · 6 · 7 · 8 · 10 · 12 · 16 and 32.
The input jacks are normalized to allow complex divider combinations without external patching: Input 1 is daisy chained to input 3, input 3 to 5, input 5 to 7. Output 1 is daisy chained to input 2, output 3 to input 4, output 5 to input 6,
output 7 to input 8.
Input 8 can be configured (jumper on the main circuit board) to serve as master reset input for dividers 1 to 7.
MULTIPLES MODULE with 3 x 4 sets of jacks.
By using the two additional ‘break’-jacks, one can use this module as one, two or three independent four-jack- multiple areas.
M 590 MCP
MULTIPLES MODULE in the Moog CP form factor.
By using the three ‘break’-jacks, one can use this module as one, two, three or four independent
Quad Switch Matrix
The QUAD SWITCH MATRIX ROUTER is a passive module, where 2 x 4 output jacks (“destinations“) can be routed in pairs to 2 x 4 signal inputs (“sources“) using four 6-way rotary switches with two “off “-positions.
This simple device is intended as a companion module to the M552, but suitable for a multitude of applications, where audio- and control-signals have to be routed fast and with immediate visual feedback. ￼
