reasonable assumption… but not in practice true.
the reason is to do with when connecting external CV (via INP), to get v/oct tracking correctly, these inputs need to be ‘calibrated’ (normal practice for eurorack).
the SSP rather than calibrate these for every INP output (and consume cpu to do so), instead calibrates these within the module when it needs them for pitch only
this saves cpu cycles.
so what is happening in your scenario, is an SSP module is output 0v, and this then gets calibrated (*) - in practice, as you’ve seen its only a tiny amount, and usually would not be noticed. (**)
fix/workaround : quite easy, apply a +0.022 offset on the output of the module you are sending to pitch.
(*) bare in mind the LFO module, has no idea if this is an internal or external voltage
(**) id assume modules like MTQ which output pitches should take this into account.
yes, this is the difference between a sequencer that outputs gates rather than triggers.
what would be nice, is if we could have both a trig output (*) and a gate output, so we can use whichever is more appropriate for our use case.
for now what ive done, is just have the pattern length longer, e.g. so it represents 1/64th, then put the G1/G2 on the first of 1 (for 1/16), you can then use L1/L2, to get the voltage output from the step that was on G1/G2.
whats quite nice about this approach (for me) is it tends to lead me off the 1/16th grid more than i might otherwise if id have used plen=16 with single gates.
but for sure a, trig output (T1/T2) would be nice @bert
(*) a trig output, would be a very short pulse (usually a couple of milliseconds)
