Alternate Tunings With The [KRM-100] MIDI-CV-Arpeggiator

Published on Dec 21, 2016 Synthesizer Keith

"This video shows how to set up alternate tunings with the [KRM-100] MIDI-CV-Arpeggiator. Select any tuning from 2-EDO to 60-EDO (2-TET to 60-TET) automatically, or program in any other tuning manually."

New KRM-100 MIDI-CV-Arpeggiator Module - Demo

Published on Nov 28, 2016 Synthesizer Keith

"This video give a tech demo of the KRM-100 MIDI-CV-Arpeggiator module (Eurorack format).

In addition to MIDI-CV, it includes an arpeggiator, mini-sequencer, extra LFO, and other features"

via KRM Music Systems

"The [KRM-100] MIDI-CV-Arpeggiator module updates your Eurorack modular with an arpeggiator, mini sequencer, additional LFO, portamento, multi-trigger, aux CV source, and other functions that modern electronic music producers expect.

Use the mini sequencer to program your own arpeggiator pattern, or select one of the 7 built-in ones. Modulate the pitch or aux CV with with the built-in LFO (9 different waveforms). The arpeggiator, mini sequencer, and LFO can be synced via MIDI.

For fine performance control, map MIDI velocity or pressure to the aux CV value, or the LFO modulation channel. In addition, there are two types of portamento (constant rate, and constant time), to match your playing style."

MIDI-CV-Arpeggiator Retrofit - Music Demo

Published on Dec 12, 2015 Synthesizer Keith

"This is a music demo of my MIDI-CV-Arpeggiator retrofit board for monosynths. I've installed it in my Arp Odyssey, and my PAIA 2700 Modular. The percussion is provided by a Volca Beats, and everything was synced via MIDI. This is a multi-track performance."

KRM Electronics MIDI-CV Converter Prototype Demo

Published on Nov 25, 2013 krmelectronics·10 videos

"This is a demo of my performace-oriented MIDI-CV converter. The unit shown is only a prototype. I'm planning on making a module based version, and also a small PCB suitable for retrofitting a mono-synth.

In the demo I'm using an Ensoniq SQ1 as a MIDI controller. It's not producing any sound. All of the sound comes from a Paia 9700 modular. I'm also using an Akai LPD8 to send MIDI button presses, and continuous controller messages.

My MIDI-CV converter takes the merged MIDI stream, and outputs 2 CVs and a gate to the Paia 9700.

All of the arpeggiator functions can be controlled in real time via MIDI:
- MIDI sync On/Off
- MIDI clock ratio (from whole notes, all the way to 32nd triplets)
- Speed (when not synced to MIDI)
- Gate time
- Latch On/Off
- Arpeggiator pattern (Up, Down, Up-Down, Down-Up, Repeat End Note, Random, User Defined)
- Arpeggiator octave span (1 to 5)"

Note: I created a KRM Electronics label with this post. I added the label to the other technical overview and repair videos by krmelectronics as well. Labels typically get created for new makers & manufacturers and may be applied to posts not featuring their products to give you more insight into their interests and background.

Site Tip: See the manufacturer channels at the bottom of posts for more. You can find the channel label drop down on the right of the site. Or if you know the channel you can click on any channel in a post and replace the channel with the one you want, for example: to

Bach Two-Part Invention No. 1 - EMS Synthi - Moog Source

Uploaded on Jan 20, 2012 krmelectronics·10 videos

"Bach Two-Part Invention No. 1, played on an EMS Synthi and Moog Source. The audio was recorded directly to 1/4" tape (Revox PR99 at 15 IPS) and dubbed back into the video. The Synthi was played via a Yamaha MIDI controller, and a Paia 9700 MIDI-CV converter. The reverb is from an Alesis Midiverb II.

Since the Synthi expects 0.32 v/oct, but the Paia MIDI-CV converter output is 1 v/oct, I had to run the output of the Paia through a simple voltage divider circuit (not shown in the video) to convert it."

Interfacing 1 v/octave Equipment to the EMS Synthi

Published on May 16, 2012

"This video describes how to use a voltage divider circuit to interface the EMS Synthi to 1 v/octave equipment (like Moog, Roland, or other synthesizers). The EMS Synthi uses 0.32 v/octave, but almost all other synthesizer manufacturers use 1 v/octave."
