A Gate Delay does what the name says: it can delay a trigger or gate signal. The RS-340 is a multi-mode gate delay that canoutput not only gates with adjustable length but trigger signals as well.
Generally the module differenciates between two different modes:
- NON-RETRIGGER Mode: If no signal is present at the Reset input each delay cycle will finish before it can be restarted. This way you can use the module as a simple clock divider with one output.
- RETRIGGER MODE: A positive pulse signal at the gate input will finish abruptly the delay cycle and re-initilaizes it.
Delay time and gate time can be set independently in a wide range between 10ms to 10sec. The total length of a cycle consists of both parameters' times.
Gate delays make a number of musically advantageous applications possible, like e.g. doubling attacks, gates and triggers; converting trigger signals into gate signals, delaying attacks or events, dividing clocks etc. The RS-340 also works as a pulse shaper generating loud, hiqh quality gate signals from poor and low-amplitude gates.

Starting almost in parallel with Doepfer, Bob Williams established back in 1998 his own modular system with fine circuits reminiscent of the British tradition initiated with EMS in the 1970s. Despite offering initially a different power connector and panel width standard (which left a 1,5HP gap), all modules bearing the "N" on their names are adapted to work seamlessly with most eurorack cases. Still, it is worth checking the depth of your case.
