Warpman 8S is an 8 step sequencer for the included modified cassette tape player. The sequencer can also be used as a CV sequencer at the flick of a switch to integrate into a modular system or to control modular desktop synths.

CV output 0-5 volts

****WHEN USING WARPMAN 8S WITH THE MODIFIED CASSETTE PLAYER THE SEQUENCER STATE SWITCH MUST BE SET TO CR (bottom position)****

The rate of the sequencer is set using the internal clock. Warpman 8S also features sync in/sync out to receive sync information from other equipment e.g korg volcas or teenage engineering pocket operators. This allows the tape to play a sequence in time with other equipment. When EXT clock is selected the sequencer syncs to the external signal and passes the signal through to sync OUT. When INT is selected the onboard clock controls the sequencer rate and passes the signal to the sync OUT. The onboard LED shows the rate of the sequencer.

Warpman 8S has two modes, RUN and STEP. Run sets the sequence playing. When STEP is selected the corresponding button lets you increment through the steps to set the pitch of each step. When being used with the cassette player the tape will stop when a potentiometer is set all the way to the left. The pitch is highest just before it's turned all the way to the right then drops slightly when fully right. The LEDs on steps 1, 3, 5 and 7 indicate the sequencer position.

The 3 'character' controls introduce a repetition of certain steps at random intervals to create variation.

The 'power out' jack has been included to share the power to future Decade Bridge instruments. This should not be used for anything other.

Warpman 8S will operate on a 9 volt centre positive wall adaptor or a 9 volt battery (battery clip included).

The Warpman 8S sequence can be bought on it's own if you already have a modified tape player or wish to use it solo as a CV sequencer.

***If you would like the cassette player lid removing so that the tape is exposed let me know. I will not remove the lid unless instructed. Removing the lid will also mean the built in speaker will also be removed***

Switch style may vary depending on stocks.

this person created a very unique instrument. I would describe it as an "art" piece. it's really clever, fun, and inspirational piece to work with. it was well thought out, and included a cassette with recorded notes/chords to play with. shipping was done quickly and packaged very nicely. i am thrilled with this unique device.
