In theory, a sophisticated enough control voltage source can replace all of the control voltage sources in a modular system. That includes saw, square, pulse, triangle LFOs, AR, AD, ADSR, multistage envelopes, tracking generators, quantizers and of course sequencers.
It is not practical to actually replace all of these with one module type, but the Verbos Electronics Voltage Multistage can create any of these control signals. As a sequencer, it has switchable slides and gates on each stage. Gate are output musically to match slides and stepped stages. As a multistage envelope, any stage can be the sustain. Stage "TIME" can be voltage controlled.
The "ref." output is a falling ramp the length of the entire stage. This is usable as a decay envelope the length of the stage. When the "strobe" input is pulsed, the setting of the "analog" control and CV input selects the stage. This is usable as a reset or to jump to any specific stage of the sequencer.
