I found an mcv24 for a good price and bought it thinking it would be pretty easy to interface with 1/4 jacks and banana plugs. I have no euro modules. I just talked to someone who said they thought there may be differents voltages between the two, (err... among the three) Does anyone know the best way to convert the CVs from the mcv24 so I can use them with metasonix and cyndustries stuff? Was I a fool to think I could just buy relativly cheap adaptors?

It shouldn't be a big deal. I'm not an expert on all things Metasonix but I believe they all respond to Hz/Volt and then just a relatively small range (my Wretch has about 2 octaves range if I'm diligent in calibrating it). So you'd have to edit that setting on the mcv24 (Tune Mode).

the mcv24 has more than enough capability to provide CV, etc.

Thanks for the reply, I was also wondering about the physical connection, can I just use 1/4 to 1/8 adapters from walmart or radio shack? I'll ask Cynthia about the banana plug adapters, I find it hard to believe there isn't a good way to deal with the different connections.

Physical connection doesn't really matter. I have a Kenton Pro-2000 which I use for the Wretch, for instance. The Kenton is miniplug, the Wretch is 1/4", I actually use some mini-to-1/4 adaptors for the CV and trigger.

Banana jacks don't have a shield, obviously, but you don't really need one either. Just lose it somewhere along the way, preferably just before the banana jack.
