That happens to be the one I own! I bought it to deal with the Wretch Machine and the M5N. I love how it has aux CVs galore.

That Kenton Pro 2k seems excellent, but it ain't cheap. I'll probably go for one if I can somehow manage to afford it Confused

For my main synth I'm using this:
Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

Eight voices of Pitch, Velocity & Trigger (busses a-d are internal only, and busses E-H are brought out on jacks). Twelve continuous controllers (or bend or aftertouch) available on Jacks via busses J-P.

I also have a Kenton Pro 2000 for my old synths, but really haven't used it much.

There's also the Encore Electronics Expressionist: http://www.encoreelectronics.com/cont_expres.html

There's the excellent and affordable Frostwave QUAD Midi/CV. Does Hz/v DIN Sync and has a fun joystick mode too. 16bit DACS and jacks on the front made this a winner for me.

The only MIDI Tuning Standard-compliant choice as far as I know:

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

It can store several tuning tables onboard, but I'm not sure how many. Handles up to 4 MIDI Channels.

The Moog Voyager can act like a MIDI/CV converter - it is one of the few keyboards that has CV outputs, that are still in production today. Perhaps it's the only one?

Blacet has a new one

www.blacet.com

Encore Electronics has a fabulous one, too.

http://www.encoreelectronics.com/cont_expres.html

I've got the Encore (got it before good Mr. Blacet released his) and it is great. 16 bit precision, no zipper, programmable, a bit pricey but worth it.

If you use the Expressionist with a modular (is there another use?) with 1/8 or 3.5mm jacks, Ad Inifitum makes a great multiple which brings the CV's and Gates out to a 19 inch 1U high panel.

Maybe the Motu Ultralite (and other Motu's) can qualify here? You can send CV out. The other way round should supposedly work, but my unit is frankly a bit wobbly on this one - CV in can't be trusted.

Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

It can be used for MIDI > CV, but more likely usage is DAW > CV. Still awesome for the price, and you can use any audio device they list as compatible.

The basic idea is to use VST plugins to convert MIDI to audio signals, which are then sent out your audio card as CV signals. Buffering *may* be necessary. But it has automatic features, too...such as tuning Smile A cheap replacement for Volta, if you will! But certainly not less in features.

thanks
