Dual VC Gate Modifier / Trigger Delay

Got a gate that's gonna make you late? Run it through the Gate_Mod! Got a trigger comin' sooner than you figger'd? Run it through the Gate_Mod!!

Let's face it, couldn't we ALL use a little more length?

This Tiny (yet powerful) Module allows you to manipulate your gate length and delay your event triggers with ease and minimal impact on your HP.

Take an incoming Signal above ~1.1V (OpAmp Comparators on the Inputs make very forgiving Clock Inputs)
and shrink it down to 5MS or lengthen it up to 5 Seconds.
That Gate will appear at the Gate Out.
When the Gate is Over a 10MS Trigger will turn on at the Delay Out.
Set the length of the Gate with the Time Potentiometer OR with the CV Input.

The switches allow you to choose between Interrupt OR Dividing Behavior (1 for each channel).
If you have Interrupt selected, when Clock In receives a new Clock Pulse the time will reset, essentially lengthening your Gate Out and Delay Out to the Time you have set + the time that has already elapsed.
So Gate will never go Low and Delay will never go High if you have a Time set longer than the interval between Clock Pulses (Useful if you have staggered, irregular or random Clocks).
When Dividing is selected Clock In will Ignore new Clock Pulses until it has finished the current cycle it's running.

The Delay 1 Out is Normalled via the Jack switch of the Clock 2 Input for all kinds of Timing madness!

Width = 4 HP
Depth = 37mm
Current Draw:
+12V = 35mA
-12V = -18mA

*The Gate_Mod firmware has been updated as of Mid August 2015. There was a bug in the Delay Out section that prevented it from resting at full 0V. All Gate_Mods shipped After the Firmware was updated include the new revision.
The IC with Updated Firmware is available in this listing as an option.
If you prefer to DIY the code and some infos!are there. Also some information about how to upload via the ICSP header or you can pull the IC and use your Arduino. Feel free to make changes as it suits you and if you come up with anything cool I'd LOVE to hear about it!
