Reach the LOWEST Notes with your Controller - PRECISION VOLTAGES to Transpose CV Signals

video upload by AJH Synth Official

"Ever been frustrated that your CV controller keyboard, sequencer or MIDI to CV converter doesn't reach the lowest notes that your VCO or other oscillators can produce? The PRECISION VOLTAGES module by AJH SYNTH can fix this problem. Using it to shift the CV output of your device up or down by up to 10 octaves (and 12 semitones) means that you can reach a huge range of the pitches that your synth can produce, even into the LFO range. Many controllers won't output negative CV signals, meaning they'll only go so low and then stop producing more notes, so you may find yourself pressing the lowest keys but still only getting the same pitch. This isn't a fault with the controller, but a considered compromise, depending on the design and intended functionality of the device. However, when paired with the Precision Voltages this is no longer an issue.

In the future a full 'User Guide' video for the Precision Voltages will demonstrate the many uses and functions this extremely flexible module can provide.

This video also relates to the earlier video demonstrating how to use the GLIDE + NOISE MkII module to access and use the CV BUS for controlling multiple VCOs from a single patch cable: [below]

How To Use the CV BUS - with the GLIDE + NOISE MkII Module or Mini Mod Eurorack Modular System

"This video shows you how you can use the CV BUS with a CV Controller (in this case an Arturia Keystep) via the Glide + Noise module (MkII version only) to control the pitch of multiple VCOs, and send the signal on to a filter or any other destination, thus making patching simpler, faster and tidier. There is also a section detailing the basics of what you'll need to know about bus boards to ensure that you can use both the CV BUS and GATE BUS, however a detailed video regarding using both will be coming soon.

Also, it briefly mentions how the PRECISION VOLTAGES module can compliment this system, and help you to expand the CV range of your controller, in case you are having trouble reaching the lowest notes your synth can produce. The AJH SYNTH MINI MOD system is based on the original Moog Minimoog Model D, but greatly expanded into Eurorack Modular format. Its high-end design and manufacture provides authentic vintage tones, with modern usage sensibilities, featuring substantial controls and socket layouts to provide a modular synth that is a true instrument to be played.

The GLIDE + NOISE MkII module can be used with any Eurorack modular system where access to the CV BUS is needed, along with a classic Glide function, and 3 simultaneously available noise outputs - white, pink, and red. Note that the original Glide + Noise MkI version of the module, since discontinued, does not have this facility.
