I was thinking of the application where a VC Divider has it's VC input come
from the row of a sequencer and the /N output goes to the clock input of the
sequencer. The row sets the duration of each step in the sequence. Using a
Y-cord or multiple won't help in this instance as the rate is constantly
changing. The benefits of clocking a sequencer this way as opposed to using
a VC clock or LFO are:

1. Sequencers can be synced to each other using multiple VC dividers and a
common clock, and note durations for each can be varied.
2. Sequencers can be synced to MIDI.
3. Sequencers can by synced to tape.

If /1 is not available from the /N output then this can still be
accomplished assuming the /N output has a suitable range, say from /2 to
/32. That would give a range from 16th notes to whole notes with clocks at
32nd note rates going to the clock input of the VC divider.
