Valence is a programmable sequential voltage source with up to 500 stored stages.  Each stage is stored in memory as a voltage in the range 0-5v and each can be set to output a gate and/or begin a smooth transition to the next step when triggered.  Stage voltages can be entered via a front panel knob or a CV input and can optionally be quantized to a variety of scales.  It can be used as a quantizer, envelope generator, sequencer, complex LFO, motion recorder, or CV delay.

Stored voltages can be addressed via CV, stepped sequentially in response to an external clock, or clocked internally.  Internally clocked modes include one-shot, loop, and live record, and can play forward or backward at a wide range of speeds.
