Generally the module differentiates between two different modes:
1. NON-RETRIGGER Mode: If no signal is present at the Reset input each delay cycle will finish before it can be restarted. This way you can use the module as a simple clock divider with one output.
2. RETRIGGER MODE: A positive pulse signal at the gate input will finish abruptly the delay cycle and re-initilaizes it.
Delay time and gate time can be set independently in a wide range between 10ms to 10sec. The total length of a cycle consists of both parameters´ times.
Gate delays make a number of musically advantageous applications possible, like e.g. doubling attacks, gates and triggers; converting trigger signals into gate signals, delaying attacks or events, dividing clocks etc. The RS-340 also works as a pulse shaper generating loud, hiqh quality gate signals from poor and low-amplitude gates.
