Calibration simplification

Post by doctorvague » Sun Aug 02, 2009 7:29 pm

I have been muling over the Volta oscillator calibration thing.
Personally I want my oscillators* calibrated, i.e. scaled with the internal oscillator trimmer(s) to 1/V Oct the best I can get before Volta or any other CV source enters the picture. I realize there are a lot of exceptions to this but personally I see no need to Volta-calibrate every oscillator in a calibrated system as I have described. Calibrate oscillator 1 with Volta and just tune the rest by ear like you would with any other modular patch. Seems way quicker and easier than Volta-calibrating everything which seems unnecessarily tedious after going through the process. Get on to the music makin'.
To me anyway.

*Problem oscillators, Hz/V, Buchla and Vintage systems excluded.
