Varigate 4+ Reset Advice Please

Post by CapabilityBrown » Thu Mar 26, 2020 10:03 am

I have midi going out of my Model:Samples in to Erica Synths Midi-Clock which is sending clock to my Varigate 4+ I'm trying to workout how to send a reset signal to the Varigate reset input so it restarts on the stop. I'm not sure whether I need a dedicated reset output to facilitate this? System link below, any help much appreciated.

Having looked in to this further, I’m assuming I need a gate signal to send to the reset input every time I hit play/ stop? Buying a new clock module seems like overkill this being the case. Would a module with manual gate trigger do the job, in which case any recommendations?

IMO if you are going to be using MIDI clock to drive your modular system you really should consider investing in a dedicated MIDI to CV module.

I would recommend the Intellijel uMidi as I have been using them for a few years and they work flawlessly.

Everything does seem to be pointing to the uMidi. It’s a shame because the Erica midi-clock does everything I need it to other than send a reset signal. I have the clock out going in to a mult then split to a Disting which I’m using to send quantized CV to Wavetable VCO and the Varigate which is sequencing the BIA. Wouldn’t mind manually resetting with a gate but I’m lacking that capability by the looks of it.
