I am interested in building one of these to control my MFOS Mini Synth.

Just wondering what all you people in know think of it. It is basic but it is cheap to build.[/url]

I don't see anything inherently wrong with it - It's 8 bit, so you'd have limited resolution, but other than that it seems ok.

The other option is of course to buy the PAIA unit, which is pretty similar.

For under $100 you can get one of those midi2cv mini boards that'll fit right inside the existing case you probably have for your soundlab. Only downside is that if you have other synth gear you wanna control with it, you are SOL.

Thanks for the replies. I did look at both of those but budgets were tight and both of those where well out of range. I ended up building one of the Obsolete Tech Midi-CV converters in the end. It cost me under £9 in the end and it works very well.

The only thing I need to sort out now is the problem of having a single CV out on the Midi-CV converter and the Mini Synth Plus needing a CV in per OSC.

Regards, Matt

Just chain the CV in series or if you absolutely need to, build a buffer. My stuff seems to work just fine with it chained in series, even on my Soundlab Ultimate with all 3 tied to the same CV input. I just wired in on-off switches to turn the chain off if I want to feed them all individually from my Midi2CV converter (which has 4 out).
