Any way to control a Moog Micromoog off the OB8 arpeggiator?

Postby WhinyLittleRunt » Tue Aug 05, 2008 1:53 am

It occurred to me I could probably pull off some kind of CV thing between my obie and my micromoog. Thing is, the micro (i thought) was only controllable from an outside source via s-trig, which requires a special connector. I want to sync the arpeggiator of my obie to the moog somehow. Any ideas?

Even with a retrofit to the Micro or the OB, the OB won't transmit the arpeggiated notes over MIDI. However, you can have OB sync to incoming MIDI clock with weird little something like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/MIDI-syncbox-for-Ob ... 1179r12691

Of course, you could MIDI both and arpeggiate both of them from your S90ES.
