The RS-50 contains three circuits in one module: trigger generator, pulse shaper and an offset generator (DC shifter).
The Trigger Generator creates trigger signals depending on voltage changes of the input signal. If the voltage at the input changes by 10mV in short time then a 10V trigger will be generated. Besides that a trigger will be made when the direction of the signal gos either positive or negative; this way you can double pulses. The input accepts voltages up to 10V. Each trigger will be displayed with a LED.
The Shaper converts a fast signal with a rising edg (like a trigger) into a gate signal. Its length can be controlled with the Shape control and a CV. It reacts to triggers with an amplitude from 2V to 20V and generates pulses with a 10V amplitude.
The third section is the Shifter, an offset generator. It creates a constant offset voltage between -10V and 10V. If a signal is applied to the “V IN” jack then the offset voltage is added to the signal and shifted a certain voltage. upwards or downwards.
