Well, my MH11 uses an ADC to voltage control the on/off of the 8 steps of the
sequencer (8-bit ADC). But in the sequence there is always only one steps CV
routed to the output.
Another sequencer i was working on would use a divider IC to trigger 8 stages
that would be summed, thus creating kind of arpeggios.
As i understand the OP in the 'Novel Sequencer' multiple stages would be summed
(while triggered by individual trigger inputs).
In fact this reminds me more of the Klee2 sequencer, where all active steps are
summed and more than one step can be active (shift registers). And yes, the
Klee2 has some pre-scaling of the range, so that one ends up with more musical
