Can the Mother32 play 8th and 16th notes?

I've got a DFAM and a SubH - thinking of getting a M32 to complete the set.

I'm just trying to figure out if you can set the sequencer in such a way that it plays 8th and 16th notes.

For example, if I midi sync it to my DAW, and it's outputting a midi clock of 60bpm (so 1 beat per second), can I set the sequencer to advance 2 steps or 4 steps per second?

Is that possible, or will it ever only advance 1 step per second and I'll have to run a clock multiplier or something?

Yes, actually the Mother-32 has the widest flexibility in that regard, way beyond the Subharmonicon and of course the very limited (although somewhat tweakable) DFAM
