The Midi2 converts standard midi note messages into the analog control voltages used by modular synthesizers. This allows a modular synthesizer to be controlled by a midi keyboard, sequencer, or DAW.
The two sets of Gate (GT) outputs can be used to trigger envelope generators by providing a voltage of +5v. The Control Voltage (CV) outputs produce precisely 1volt per octave over a range of 10 octaves. Control Voltage outputs (CV1 and CV2) respond to pitch bend control messages without any additional patching.
The Midi Channel is assigned based on the first note received.
The Midi2 module has 3 distinct modes of operation:
Monophonic - Gate2 and CV2 outputs mirror the outputs of Gate1 and CV1. Monophonic mode works great when using a modular as a single voice synthesizer.
Duophonic- The Midi2 module uses the two sets of Gate and CV outputs to allow two notes to be played simultaneously. The first midi note is sent to the Gate1 and CV1 outputs and the second is sent to the Gate2 and CV2 outputs. Duophonic mode is perfect when working with a two voice modular synthesizer.
Dual Monophonic - Gate 2 and CV2 outputs are controlled by a different midi channel than the Gate 1 and CV 1 Outputs. Dual Monophonc mode allows a modular to be controlled by two separate sets of midi data. This mode works well when using a modular as two single voice synthesizers.
GT1 Output ﾖ Note on = Gate high (+5v), Note off = gate low (0v)
CV1 Output ﾖ 1 volt per octave voltage derived from note played on keyboard.
GT2 Output ﾖ Note on = Gate high (+5v), Note off = gate low (0v)
CV2 Output ﾖ 1 volt per octave voltage derived from note played on keyboard.
Sync Output ﾖ Outputs gate based on beat 1 of the incoming midi clock.
Midi Input ﾖ Input jack for a standard 5-pin midi cable.
Power Usage: 40mA
