First off we owe a massive thank you to Krzysztof Zawadzki for asking for a mod to turn the reset switches into pause switches.The baby8 version 2 kit uses the switches to select the number of steps from 1 to 8. This modification however allows the switches to turn steps 2 to 8 gate/trigger signal out off, which would allow for more rhythmic sequencing. This is definitely something we will be adding in version 3 of the Baby8 but for now, for those of you who have the current version and want to know how to do it, here is our method:
WARNING!! The mod is not completely straightforward and includes cutting traces.
A Rakit baby8 sequencer
1″ insulated wire
2 resistors of any value between 4k and 50k
Step 1. Using a sharp knife cut the two traces indicated below.
Step 2. Mould and cut two resistors (I used 10ks) as shown below.
Step 3.Solder in place. Make sure they do not touch any joints besides the ends shown soldered.
Step 4. Install wire
