How to calibrate pitch CV out
« on: April 16, 2016, 04:58:54 am »
I found some old posts on this topic, but didn't find the answer yet..

I have a eurorack oscillator (dixie II) that I wanted to control with my new Minibrute.

First I tried MIDI.
With my Kenton Pro Solo mkII I got perfect tracking across all octaves (of the MB) with only a few minor adjustments of 'fine tune' (offset) and 'scale' (slope) parameters on the Pro Solo.

Then I tried the pitch CV out of the MB.
First I noticed an octave difference as compared with the Pro Solo and the internal oscillator (also described elsewhere in this forum) but that was easily corrected. However the tracking was quite a bit off.

I know I could try to calibrate the dixie to match it with the MB pitch out, but is there a way to adjust the slope of the pitch CV output of the Minibrute?

Beware that Minibrute's CV out goes to 10V. Some analog gear only accepts up to 5V (e.g., Eurorack modules. M00g equipment, etc.). Just saying, there is a risk of frying your gear (in the case of M00g, word is that they have resistors to prevent this, but those can be burned, and then your machine is potentially in danger.)

I should add, that this is a subject on which there has been said lots of conflicting stuff. So take my words with a grain of salt. But I don't connetc my CV out to anyhing. I use the Minibrute in itself, and that already gives plenty of fun and great sounds.
