2hp dual gate to trigger conditioner kit

$35.00

A lot of my percussion modules are expecting well-formed triggers, but clocks and other things typically put out gates. This is a dual gate-to-trigger conditioner — it will narrow just about any gate down to proper trigger width, but its output is also fully adjustable from 0ms up to the full width of the original gate. So you can use it if, for example, you’re using a clock divider that puts out double-length gates that you want to shape back down to the same width as the rest of the gates you’re using. Or anything else along those lines.

The trigger/gate width is fully CV controllable across the same range that the knob gives you.

The input of the top half is normalled to the input of the bottom half, in case you want 2 different lengths from the same gate input.

This is a KIT which includes everything necessary to build one of these. Note that this is nearly entirely surface mount. I used to be scared of it but nowadays I prefer it to through-hole because you don’t wind up with all those little metal legs that fall on the floor & then get tracked into a room with carpeting where they stick up and stab you in the foot.

The six things you need for successful surface mount soldering at the scale of my kits (0805 size components):

  • A decent soldering station
  • A lighted magnifier
  • Decent tweezers
  • A flux pen
  • .020″ solder
  • If your iron is a Weller, an ETA tip, or the equivalent for your iron
