4ms Company QCD Expander

Expansion module for the Quad Clock Distributor (QCD)
MFR# QCDEXP

Product Description

The 4MS QCD Expander is an expansion module for the Quad Clock Distributor (QCD). The QCD Expander adds a host of features, turning the QCD into a programmatic non-linear sequencer. Each channel gets a CV Trigger Delay (Pulse Width) jack and knob, an additional output jack with three selectable modes, and attenuverters for all CV input jacks. Self-patched evolving rhythms and swing/shuffle patterns are easily obtained, as well as complete control over standard rhythmic patterns.

Features:

  • Connects to QCD module with a 16-conductor ribbon cable (included)
  • More features are added to each QCD channel:
  • Multi-mode output jack INV OUT mirrors the tempo of main QCD output
  • Mode Switch for each INV OUT jack:
  • Delayed Trigger Mode
  • Inverted Gate Mode
  • Shuffle Mode (delayed + original trigger)
  • PW/Delay knob controls trigger delay time on INV OUT jack (or pulse width in Inverted Gate Mode)
  • Also controls Pulse Width of main QCD OUT jack
  • CV input jack for external control
  • Attenuverter allows for one channel to precisely modulate another channel's delay or pulse width
  • Div/Mult CV attenuator knob
  • Controls how much the signal on the main QCD's Div/Mult CV jack will modulate the tempo
  • Useful for precisely modulating the speed of one channel with another
  • Global LED brightness can be adjusted from the front panel

  • Module size:
  • The QCD Expander is 12HP and 0.98" (25mm) deep.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
