ES-4 with Ableton CV Tools

Post by smslater245 » Fri Jan 17, 2020 9:30 pm

I found an ES-4 for sale locally and was wondering if it would work with Ableton's CV Tools to send cv from Ableton to my modular. I have a Motu Ultralite MK3 with SPDIF in and out. Any help would be much appreciated!

Yes, but you'd have to route the CV Tools outputs via the Silent Way plug-ins to encode them for the ES-4.

You could just use your MOTU outputs directly.

I’ve read somewhere that the Motu’s voltage output is pretty low and limited range for controlling modular. Is this true?

Yes, but it will get you going.
