Who makes Volt/Hz modular synths?

Postby madtheory » Thu Apr 02, 2009 4:35 pm

I have a CS-5 and a CS-10 that I'm very fond of. I'd like to expand the palette with some modules. However, these synths are V/Hz. Which companies, if any, make V/Hz modules?

Nowadays, nobody makes V/Hz.

The gates will work to fire envelopes, you just won't get proper pitch tracking with V/oct modules.

paia does some, i remember that you could have it from the module or the fatman i don't remember wich one.
but i think mad wanted to use his synth directly to modules. not midi to hz/v on one side and midi to oct/v on the other to make them work at the same time

Yes, I want to add oscillators etc. to the Yamahas. Paia don't do V/Hz modules anymore. But the Fatman is V/ Hz inside.

Yes, I understand about gates, I'd really like to have conventional pitch tracking :) so V/Oct modules are not what I'm after.

I think this might be interesting for you - just route it to your external signal input. I'm making a few for my korg
ms10 when the parts arrive and I get some time to do te soldering.

The Dotcom Q108 VCO has a linear FM input. I don't know over what range it could be made to track accurately.
Switches, knobs, buttons, LEDs, LCD screens, monitors, keys, mice, jacks, sockets. Now two joysticks!

Very cool Mush, thanks :)

So does that circuit need an LFO fed in to get the PWM going?

Yepp, but those are even easier to build and can easily integrated in the design. I prefer inputs and separate modules to integrated designs. One even easier solution would be to mod your CS's with an LFO-output.

Old PAiA modulars (2700, 4700) were V/Hz, Fatman has V/Hz output only (MIDI in), 9700 is V/oct.

Ah, thanks! That's the one I saw mentioned as V/Hz, but couldn't remember the name :)

I just checked the price... personally, if I had that kind of money, I'd get a Prophet 08... but that's just me...
