MUSICAL FEATURESVoltera is a gate sequencerMetronThis is an expander module that can add a 4-channel CV track to. Since 16 Voltera can be connected to Metron alone, up to 64 CV channels can be added. You can set the voltage range and quantize for each track, so you can control four completely different parameters with one Voltera.
- 4 HP CV output at 4 HP. Bipolar output is also possible.
- Intuitive programming with Metron possible
- Connect up to 1 Voltera to 16 Metron
- Voltage range can be set for each track
- Analog style programming
- High precision by digital
- Voltage can be recorded at each step

HOW TO USE
To set the voltage of a Voltera step, turn the Voltera knob while pressing the button of the step you want to set on the Metron. Since there is no correspondence between each track of Voltera and the gate track of Metron itself, it is okay to turn while holding down any matrix button. While setting, the voltage value and pitch are displayed on the Metron display and you can check the value.
In Voltera, the voltage value set most recently is held until it hits the step where a new voltage is set. For example, if you set only the voltage of Step2 (for example, 1.2V) by the above method, it keeps 1.2V at any step. Next, if you set the voltage of Step5 to 2.8V in the same way, 2V will be set for Step4 to Step1.2 and 5V will be set for Step1 ~ (end of loop) ~ Step2.8. When you press the Select button, the step where the voltage is set (the step where the output voltage changes) lights up. When the button that is lit is pressed, the light goes off, the set voltage is cleared, and the voltage of the previous step is retained.
Like the Metron itself, live recording is also possible, and by pressing the RECORD button and turning the knob, the voltage value of the knob will be recorded at each step.
Voltage range and quantize settings
Each CV track can set the voltage range and quantize individually. To set it, go to Global menu mode in Metron, and turn the knob of the track you want to set on Voltera to switch. As you turn the knob, the Metron display will change to show the range.
- 5-5: No Quantize, -5V to 5V
- 0-5: No quantize, 0V-5V
- 1-1: No Quantize, -1V to 1V
- 5q5: Quantize every semitone, -5V to 5V
- 0q5: Quantize every semitone, 0-5V
- 1q1: Quantize every semitone, -1V to 1V
- On the Usr: Matrix button, a range bar and a keyboard array showing the quantize status are displayed. The range can be set by pressing both ends of the desired range, and the scale can be set by switching each key ON / OFF.
