SE-02 & NuEVI - CV Breath Demo - Mark Steiner

Published on Jul 5, 2019 Mark Steiner

"CV to breath from the Berglund Instruments NuEVI to the Roland / Studio Electronics SE-02. Very smooth and delicate attacks and swells.

For info/wait list on the NuEVI (and the upcoming EWI/woodwind version of it called the NuRAD), email

Johan Berglund made the breakout box used here than can bring CV from the NuEVI through both of the unused pins from the midi port.

For this instrument, I find it's best to use CV just for filter (from breath), and midi for other aspects. Also, I found using hybrid breath is best (it's sending CV to filter and also the cf breath setting in the NuEVI to the filter as midi CC). Otherwise, it appears the CV input for the SE-02 requires more than usual CV amounts, and may have some other special situations in the circuit I'm not totally sure on. But this works great!

So... set NuEVI breath to "cf"
2nd breath CV to VCF CV input on the SE-02
Turn the filter cutoff on the SE-02 to zero.
Turn the contour on the SE-02 to zero.
Also good to use gate hold on the NuEVI, especially if you will be playing large intervals."
