I just bought a tm 3 on ebay because it was a good deal, even though I have no midi to cv converter. I have a vx 351 for my moog voyager, but I just found out that this wont operate the tm 3 because it operates using Hz/cv instead of octave/cv like the moog will output. I don't know if I will be able to get a midi to cv converter that does this for a while. I kind of screwed myself. Does anyone know a way I could test the tm 3 just to see if it is working properly when I get it? I don't even need to operate it musically yet, but I want to know if it is working when I get it. Any suggestions?

no suggestions

(although you can drive the TM-3 with a guitar or bass signal, and get a crazy distorted signal) if you can tune the two oscillators using the knobs on the TM-3 while sending a signal through it, it's probably working fine

if you are looking for a cheap midi-to-cv that will work the kenton pro-solo mk.1 works great, and i got mine used for about $100

or you can also get the synhouse midijack II for $129 and built a little enclosure for it

...or you can look up the specs of what the voltage range this beast is looking for, and just wire up a battery and a pot to a jack. this won't test tuning, but it will tell you if it's responding to the cv.

Just patch one of the cv outputs of the vx-351 through an attenuator and into the tm-3. If you limit the voltage range to to the usable range of the tm-3 , it will be quite easy to control. Try the wheels , pedals , lfo and s&h. You could also run the voyager's signal into the tm-3 for fm effects.
