Title: Microfreak Eurorack controller mode
Post by: BigNorthumbrian on August 17, 2019, 09:41:17 pm
Would it be possible to have a setting to allow the Microfreaks sound engine to be controlled externally by midi, while itís own keyboard could be used to control Eurorack modules by its cv/gate outputs. Essentially turning it into sound module and Eurorack controller in one mode.

Local off? (Utility menu, MIDI)

Ah yes, I didnít realise thatís what local did, although itís a pity you canít use the controls to edit the sound, oh well, thatís probably my Keystep going back in its box for a while   😉

That works with midi, but not with the cv/gate outputs, the merely echo the incoming midi signal. So itís nearly there.

Ahh... nearly there indeed... You could use a separate MIDI to CV box, but of course that's en extra piece of gear/expense/complication.

A feature to make the CV/Gate follow the keyboard in "local off" mode would be good to allow for the workflow you're after. E.g. a "local on/off" setting in the CV/Gate menu as well as in the MIDI menu.
