Are clock and reset possible to send from the cv outs?

There are several ways to send clock from CV. You're basically just looking for something to send a high voltage trigger periodically. This could be a sequencer track dedicated to a clock signal, or an LFO that cycles once per sequence step.

Reset is just a high voltage trigger; so you can dedicate a sequencer to a reset signal by having a sequence of all low voltages, and then go high on the very last step before the reset.

Never tried it, but you could probably also do it from one of the pressure sensitive sliders on the front...
Not sure of you're application, but that could be an interesting way to do it.

tapping the top of a slider works great as a CV trigger.

Sorry for necro bump - How is this done practically?
