Author Beatstep pro+low gain utility+coco?

This seems to be a fairly cheap way to expand the cocoquantus? Am I missing anything? If the beatstep pro can do midi to cv conversion.. that will be the icing on the cake.but for $350 for both this seems like a no brainier. Gonna read up now. This is the utl-1 I'm thinking of btw

Thoughts?

I use the Korg SQ-1 to sequence the Coco via a similar conversion box. You can here it in the up and down high notes in this track:

No experience with the Beatstep Pro, but it should work similarly.

It was this track that threw me over the edge on wanting to expand the coco. Love your works sir. The sq-1 is much cheaper and probably a more sensable option considering the coco is the only real "hardware" I have. The conversion box seems a must have in the long term so I'm going to order soon.

Shit, I was even eyeballing the ms-20 as a semi affordable way to expand. I would love if some peeps uploaded some Coco conversion box interfacing/simple vids.

Cheers

I have several plumbutter and original ms20 videos from my visit with my family

they are pretty old though

seems like they played well together from what I remember

Thank you!

Regarding the conversion box - its really simple. You plug the ground from the coco into it and then you can interact with any CV signal or audio audio that is minijack.

I love hooking up the Coco to the modular that way, as you can send envelopes to the VCAs, thus making it sound in sync to the patch. Or the SQ-1 for example is perfect for sequencing the time, thus making it play melodies. MS-20 would be nice, but something cheap like Doepfer Beauty case and a A-143-1 quad envelope would also be a brainmangling addition.

I agree in that with little hardware that the SQ-1 is a nice solution. Plus with all the drama around the Beatstep Pro right (missed triggers, ground loops, etc.) I'd wait until the pioneers (thanks guys! cool ) got the arrows and settle in when its been patched.

I've recently got Meng Qi's Voltage Memory going with the Coco. Woah.. I haven't even plugged it into the Quantussy section yet, but sequencing the flips and skips adds a lot of rhythmic control to the looping.

It's quite nice on the VCAs too, but kind of wish I had a slew I could run the voltage through first, as that Raster-Noton kind of sound is not always desirable.

I am just a bit worried though cause the gate from it puts out 10 volts. I tried it before I check the voltage and everything worked fine, but I may stick a resistor in series with it, just to make sure nothing happens.

I have a relevant question.

What voltages play nice with CL gear? I have a PB and have just built a banana to 3.5mm adaptor box so I can modulate the PB with my euro.

Kinda scared to plug it in though.

I guess positive voltages only? under 10v?

Anyone know?

This topic has been covered in many threads here, but you guessed the essence - From Peter (when asked about negative CVs):

"The ciat stuff can handle negative voltages
because all the inputs have either built-in attenuators or voltage
limiters, so you shouldn't notice a problem. In general, though, they
follow the philosophy of serge and buchla, that cvs "should be" positive
gradients going from zero to ten or so
. I've found that the more you talk
about it, the more it wraps your head up; the more you experiment, you'll
probably find something you like... Hope that helps!"

I often use my euro and PB together with a home-made adapter box. I just avoid putting anything from the euro into the brown jacks on the Rollz and haven't had any issues so far following this approach thumbs up
