Merge triggers and gatesAttibution: DivKid
An OR circuit will remain high as long as one input is high
You can combine two or more trigger and/or gate signals using OR logic. The result is similar to using a mixer, except that a mixer adds the signals together, resulting in potentially high amplitude, whereas the output of OR logic will always be either 0V or whatever it’s high voltage is (typically 5V, but designs may vary).
Note: with OR logic, gates that overlap are essentially merged (run together) to form a longer gate.
- patch two different trigger or gate rhythms to the inputs on an OR logic circuit
- patch OR output to trigger a percussion module or envelope
