Malekko Heavy Industry Varigate 4+
Malekko Heavy Industry Varigate 4+ is a 4-channel, 8-step sequencer that can simultaneously output both gates and quantized or unquantized CV. Varigate 4+ can be used as a master companion module with Malekko's Voltage Block or as a slave companion module with Malekko's Varigate 8+, both sold separately.
Each channel (or track) correlates with its own sequencer, for a total of 4 independent sequencers. With the flip of a switch Varigate 4+ can be configured to output 4 channels of CV, 2 channels of CV and 2 channels of gates, or 4 channels of gates.
Each step of a sequencer can be programmed with probability for gates, repeats, glide and notes (when in CV mode). There is a also a randomization feature for repeats, notes and glide.
Channel parameters for scales, sequence direction (forward, reverse, pendulum or random), sequence sength, division, multiplication and pulsewidth are all easily accessible using Track Mode.
Easy preset recall makes Varigate 4+ perfect for live performance. Pair it with Malekko Voltage Block (sold separately) for maximum control!
