MAybe some specs tell 10V, but my doepfer gear does 5V and
I just did test it's output. All roland gear I know
runs from 5 V and isn't the Roland x0x serie defining sync itself ? :-)

I find the different way round even more interesting.
Starting by trigering. I am working on that.
GEt a circuit that stays on if the input gate is on, but shortly
brakes this state to go down to 0V shortly and rise back in kind
of a inverted triggering way. This will cause a 202 e.g. to start
up again.
Now get this effect started by a usual trigger (like the 909 rim etc)
and you cen get any sequence of any lenght looked to a running system.

I have no idea though, how to get this inverted triggering.
I'll work on that and let you know.
