A Lo-fi Sampler/Sequencer with built in microphone


Arm - selects which channel -1 through 4- you will be recording to

Rec - hold down to record to selected channel

Volume - overall output level

Speed - controls the rate of the sequencer/how quickly the samples are triggered

Sample rate - controls the speed/pitch/quality of each channel’s sample while recording and while playing back.

While a sample is being recorded, this control can be anywhere from fully counter clockwise to around 3 O’clock (above this won’t record). During playback this control can be anywhere.

Gate/Off/Full - Sets the playback style of each channel’s sample playback.

Gate - will trigger the sample each time the sequencer reaches that channel, and will will stop the sample when the sequencer moves on to the next channel.

Off - will disable the sample

Full - will trigger the sample each time the sequencer reaches that channel, and the sample will continue to play until completed.

In this mode the sample will not retrigger until it has finished playing.

Mic - closer and louder sources will be more distorted, quieter and further sounds, more noisy/with more clicks and artifacts.

Remote -  can accept a normally open momentary switch for hands free recording.

Output - this goes to your amp/mixer etc.

Unit is powered by a 9v DC negative center supply (same type most guitar pedals use)
