WMD - SSM Expand
WMD - SSM Expand is the expansion module for the Sequential Switch Matrix which is a mega-project: a sequential switch is designed like your a traditional remote control, except that your sequential switch is controlled by external CV signals, that dictate the switching. Now the SSM realises this in a matrix-fashion: combining various sources for triggering, making new waveforms and shapes at audio rate, it is a lot to have in one truly special module!
WMD - SSM Expand
Gate/Trigger Outputs of Each Route
Gates Mirror Routing LEDs
Triggers Occur on Steps
Step Output For CV and Step/Reset
Retrigger Gates on Step Optional
Gate/Trig Behavior Invertable
CV and Knob for Trigger Length
Four Bit DAC Outputs for Outs 3/4
Skiffable PCB Design
+40mA/-3mA Current Consumption
The SSM Expand 8 HP module provides extended functionality of the SSM.
Gate/Trig: Gate (Green LED lit) provides 10V outputs for each routing button. It mirrors the routing shown by the SSM LEDs. Trig mode (Red LED lit) will output a trigger when a step (CV, Step/Gate or Reset) is taken. Pushing a routing button will not change the output thus providing synchronized triggers.
Trigger Length: CV and knob provide adjustable trigger length.
Retrig on Step: When on, gates and triggers will retrigger quickly when a step is taken.
Invert Behavior: When on, routings that are OFF will produce ON triggers or Gates.
DAC3/4: Two 4 bit DAC outputs that output a weighted 4 bit voltage between 0 and 5 volts. From routing columns 3 and 4.
Step: Outputs a trigger for each step, reset or CV change that is made to the SSM.
Installation: Connect the 20 pin ribbon cable to the GTExp header on the SSM, and the ToSSM connector on the Expand. Red Stripe Down.
Specs: 8 HP. 25mm Depth. 10V Gate Outputs. Current consumption is +40mA, -3mA. 12 month warranty.
Specs & Notes
Width: SSM 16 HP. Expand 8 HP.
Current consumption: SSM +80mA/-32mA. Expand +40ma/-3mA.
Voltage Levels: Input range +-10V. Output range +-10V. Step/Gate and Reset sense signals at 0.8V.
Operating Frequency: Maximum transition frequency is 26kHz. Pushing buttons at high clock speeds will slow the response as the buttons are debounced.
Compare Input: +-10V. Normaled to 0.5V.
Depth: SSM & Expand - 25mm with connectors
Compliance: The SSM and Expand are RoHS and CE compliant.
Warranty: The SSM and Expand are covered under warranty for 12 months after purchase. Please contact us if you ever have problems. We will take care of you.
