Patch ing & Sequencing
With some patch cables and a little experimentation, the Treadstone’s sonic palette can be expanded considerably. Ins: External CV inputs for pitch (one via an attenuator), though fine adjustment is tricky. Duty – for modulating pulse width. External CVs for filter cutoff (one via attenuator which is very sensitive). Audio In. Clock In for the sequencer. EG Trig. Outs: Dedicated square wave VCO output. LFO square and triangle outs (good for vibrato and more controlled PWM). Envelope out - useful for creating pitch sweeps. MIDI Loop
Sequencer: Despite its size, the Treadstone features a 16-note step sequencer. Tempo can be set via MIDI clock or incoming analogue clock, whilst notes are entered using MIDI note-on messages (with C#7 and C6 reserved for rests and ‘skips’ respectively).
