Any hardware device with a control voltage (CV) input can be placed under precise digital control from your favorite audio workstation software. You can play and automate modulars, analog synths - even effects processors.
Imagine being able to play and automate your CV-equipped analog gear from Digital Performer, Logic Pro, or Live with the same level of control, precision and convenience as a virtual instrument.
- Standard virtual instrument plug-in that turns an audio interface with DC-coupled outputs into a voltage control interface. - Lets you control external modular synths or other CV-equipped gear from your computer. - Works with Digital Performer, Logic Pro, Live and other Audio Unit instrument hosts that support side chain outputs. - Works with any MOTU audio interface equipped with TRS outputs, including the 24io with 24 TRS outputs, expandable to 96. - Familiar, easy-to-use instrument plug-in operation within your favorite host software. - Provides 24 control outputs per plug-in instance. Use as many instances as needed. - Converts MIDI track data to control voltages to play modulars, analog synthesizers and other CV-equipped sound sources. - Sample-accurate MIDI playback with supporting host software (such as DP). - Provides seven different control source types, including MIDI notes, MIDI controller data and audio track automation, plus tempo-synced sources such as LFOs, clock pulses and trigger/pattern sequencers. - Provides one-click pitch and octave calibration per oscillator using either Hz/V or V/oct tuning standards. - View at a glance the total calibrated range for each oscillator/interface combination. - Sync multiple drum machines, arpeggiators and other clock destinations with independent PPQ resolution for each device.
System requirements - Universal Binary Mac compatibility - Mac OS X (version 10.4 or later) - An audio sequencer software package that hosts MAS or Audio Unit (AU) instrument plug-ins and supports multiple instrument sidechain outputs, such as Digital Performer, Logic, or Ableton Live. - An audio interface with DC-coupled outputs, such as any MOTU FireWire, USB2, or PCI audio interface with quarter-inch TRS outputs. - The proper cable type for your interface. - External audio hardware that responds to control voltage signals, such as modular analog synthesizers, vintage monosynths, etc. - A free USB port for the iLok USB key. Note that if you have multiple products which use iLoks for authorization you can consolidate multiple authorizations onto a single iLok
