Noise Engineering Numeric Repetitor
Four-channel rhythm generator based on binary arithmetic
Numeric Repetitor is an 8HP rhythmic gate generator. A core pattern forms the basis, then variation is achieved by treating this pattern as a binary number and multiplying it by another. NR contains 32 prime rhythms derived by examining all possible rhythms and weeding out bad ones via heuristic. Three of the outputs are variable by knob or CV. It requires only a beat clock to run, but also includes a measure / reset input to make sure all your parts remain in sync.
Size and power:
Numeric — of numbers — from Latin numeri "numbers" with suffix -ic "of, or pertaining to"
