The Quad Clock Distributor (QCD) from 4ms Company is a four channel Voltage Controlled Clock Divider/Multiplier with master Tap Tempo. Each channel can be synced to the tap tempo, to the channel above, or to an external clock. Each channel also has a reset jack. With a Tap Tempo button and five sync'ed lock outputs, the QCD is a versatile head-of-the-chain "Master" clock module, and/or a complex rhythmic pattern generator.

The QCD has headers for connecting to the QPLFO, VCA Matrix, and other modules.
- Four CV Clock Divider/Multipliers (/32 to x16)
- Tap Tempo button with dedicated tap clock output
- Channels sync to tap tempo, or can be driven by external clock(s)
- Reset jack on each channel
- Gate or trigger outputs, or variable PW and Trigger Delay using the QCD Expander
- Create complex trigger patterns for drum modules or rhythmic patches
- Connects to QPLFO and other modules with the included 8-pin cable
- QCD Expander adds attenuator/inverters for CV inputs

Basic features
- Four CV-controlled Clock Divider/Multipliers
- Tap tempo button and five sync'ed clock outputs make the QCD perfect for head-of-the-chain "Master" clock module
- Tap clock output runs at the tapped tempo (even if other channels are being clocked externally)
- Create complex rhythmic patterns by patching multiple channels into each other's Div/Mult CV and Reset
- Each of the four channels has an independent clock IN, OUT, Reset and Div/Mult CV
- Divide or Multiply incoming clock from /32 to x16 on each channel:
-  -Detented knob to snap to integer division/multiples
- -CV jack to modulate Div/Mult amount
- Reset jack (per channel) restarts the clock when a trigger is received (alters phase of clock)
- Clock input jacks are normalized downwards: Tap->Red->Black->Blue->Green
- Clock outputs stop automatically when incoming clock stops
- LEDs blink to output clocks' tempos
- 5V clock output pulses, fully buffered. Default is square-wave, and PW is controllable with expander
- Daisy chain multiple QCDs or other clock modules using Tap Out jack
- Header on the PCB to connect to Quad Pingable LFO (QPLFO) to provide four CV Skew-able, CV Div/Mult-able envelopes
- Interfaces with QCD Expander for more features (Pulse Width, Inverted Gate, attenuverters for CV inputs)

Module Size:
The QCD is 10HP and 1.57 inches (40mm) deep. All pots have a metal shaft and nut.

Power consumption:
A jumper selects using +5V from the power supply, or generating +5V on-board from the +12V rail.

+12V rail:
   - 48mA with jumper selecting external 5V
   - 88mA with jumper selecting internal 5V.

+5V rail:
   - 41mA with jumper selecting external 5V
   - not used (0mA) with jumper selecting internal 5V.

-12V rail:
   - 40mA
