This is simple MIDI2CV converter turning this modular into note-playing musical instrument.
It has 2 pairs of CV + GATE outputs, that can be programmed into almost any kind of MIDI event.
V/oct is also programmable in a wide range.
What you see in the picture is simple panel to
hold the board and jacks. I just didn't care this time for the look of the module. Just wanted
it to play. First tries were made on bare PCB hanging on wires in front of modular and that was
Panel from the top
- the RED button
- assigns MIDI channel and message type (notes, CC, etc.) into out 1 or 2. It also enters
into V/oct scale calibration mode
- DIN 5 socket:
- MIDI IN, what else...
- GATE2 jack:
- Gate output of 2nd channel. +12V gate signal if 2nd channel is assigned as notes
- GATE1 jack:
- Gate output of 1st channel. +12V gate signal if 1st channel is assigned as notes
- CV2 jack:
- Control Voltage output of 2nd channel. 0-5V range
- CV1 jack:
- Control Voltage output of 1st channel. 0-5V range
- V/oct accuracy:
- about 2 cents in entire range, except lowest and highest note in 61-note keyboard.
- response time:
- output is updated 0.3ms from the end of velocity byte
- V/oct scale:
- adjustable in range 0.3-2 V/oct
- possible MIDI events:
- notes, pitcbend, Control Change, Program Change, Aftertouch
The panel is made of 2mm thick aluminium L-shape of the profile size 20x30mm. Bare surface,
prepared by the people supplying home-improvement supermarkets. The module contains the button,
4 jacks and tiny MIDI2CV module called "MIDI implant", available at
www.midimplant.com. Well, anyway, I'm the guy who makes them, so I kinda bought it from myself ;)
