CV.OCD is a device which converts MIDI signals to the Control Voltage (CV) and Trigger/Gate signals which are used to control traditional analog synthesizers.
As well as doing this useful bit of “plumbing”, CV.OCD is designed to open up some creative options that go beyond what a simple MIDI-CV converter can usually do. If you get a bit OCD about your CV this could be the box for you!
CV.OCD has four assignable “continuous” analog CV outputs and twelve assignable gate/trigger outputs
It has powerful functionality for generating clock, trigger and non-note gates from MIDI information. For controlling your analog equipment via MIDI you are probably not going to get as much bang for your buck with anything else!
Each of the FOUR analog CV outputs have 0-8V output level and 12-bit resolution and be assigned to any of
Each of the TWELVE gate outputs has 5V output level (Please ensure that this is a high enough voltage level to trigger your synthesizer) and can be assigned to any of
CV.OCD allows to group pitch and gate outputs to achieve configurations like
You get 12 gate outputs to play with! As well as simply gating notes you can
The device is configured by MIDI system exclusive patches, which you can create using a web based configuration page. Onces installed on the device, the patch is saved during power cycles.
Future firmware upgrades to the device can simply be installed over MIDI as sysex files.
CV.OCD has a standard 5-pin DIN MIDI input with optical isolation. There is also a 3.5mm stereo jack MIDI input which is compatible with Novation, Arturia and other devices which use a "hot tip" configuration (For Korg devices you need to use the 5-pin input). Only one of the MIDI inputs may be used at a time.
Power is 9-12V DC via a 2.1mm barrel plug with negative centre pin (This is the type of supply used with most guitar stompboxes). Use a supply with 100mA (0.1amp) or more current capacity (It does not matter if the current capacity of the supply is higher). The supply must have a DC output - do not use an AC output power adaptor.
The supplies which I am re-selling as a product option are quality "wall wart" style supplies from myVolts.com. More information on these supplies is available on myVolts web site
The device comes FULLY ASSEMBLED and tested. Size approx 17.6cm x 5.5cm x 2.7cm. Approx weight 175g. Laser cut acrylic case with laser etched acrylic face plate.
