microbrute pitch cv output: nasty offset issue
« on: May 12, 2015, 09:01:23 am »
i love to use the microbrute so sequence my modular synth. that's why i have two microbrutes. but both of them have the same nasty problem with their pitch cv outputs: both have a negative offset, one of -20mv, the other one of -30mv. so when playing octaves, instead of

0v ... 1v ... 2v ... 3v ... etc

i get

0v ... 0.97v ... 1.97v ... 2.97v ...

this is really annoying. when sequencing an analog vco, a workaround is to avoid the brute's lowes prime interval and tune the vco a little up. but with some digital oscillators, like my beloved mutable instruments tides, where the 'coarse tune' knob is already quantized for half tones and the 'fine tune' knob is normalled as an attenuator for the fm input, that is not an option. so i really need a solution for this.

is there some way of recalibrating the cv output?
or should i send in my microbrutes?

@other brute owners:
do yours have the same issue?
have you found some kind of solution?

any help would be greatly appreciated.
