This is the kind of stuff we love here at ANR. Well thought, well built and at a fair price. What’s not to like? So, the CV.OCD is a device which converts MIDI signals to the Control Voltage (CV) and Trigger/Gate signals which are used to control traditional analog synthesizers. It’s not a module, so it won’t take space in your modular system (which is a plus!)
Wait, there’s more. CV.OCD has some features that go beyond what a simple MIDI-CV converter can usually do.
CV.OCD has four assignable “continuous” analog CV outputs and twelve assignable gate/trigger outputs
It has powerful functionality for generating clock, trigger and non-note gates from MIDI information. Plus, each of the FOUR analog CV outputs have 0-8V output level and 12-bit resolution and can be assigned to a series of different parameters, while Each of the TWELVE gate outputs has 5V output level and can also be assigned to MIDI controls.
The device is configured by MIDI system exclusive patches, which you can create using a web-based configuration page. Onces installed on the device, the patch is saved during power cycles.
Future firmware upgrades to the device can simply be installed over MIDI as sysex files.
Highly recommended, CV.OCD works great and if you have questions, the guy behind it is very responsive. You can order CV.OCD here, for $119.
