VERT is an 8-bit digital to analog converter with an internal clock, allowing a CV signal to be converted to 8 gates. Unipolar or bipolar input signals can be selected by a switch to cover the entire range of conversion. The internal oscillator has a range switch to select between audio and LFO range as well as an attenuator for the FM input. An expansion port on the back allows the VERT to connect to any Turing Machine expander, allowing new functionality to be added in the future. The onboard LEDs come in 8-color rainbow or in white. A trim pot accessible from the front panel allows the LEDs to be dimmed to the preferred level of brightness.
