You wouldn't really build something like that INTO this quantizer module -
you'd use this quantizer module to add transposing to something else.

For instance, set the quantizer to semitones, then patch a DC voltage to the
input. COntrol the input level with an attenuator, and you have a stepped
output that represents selectable intervals. Then just sum with your
keyboard voltage at exactly 1V/Oct, and you have your quantizer acting as a

You'd need a mixer or a summer with 2 precision 1V/Oct inputs.
