Wiard with midi and other cv converters?

Post by KoryB » Thu Jul 14, 2016 10:21 pm

Hi,
I'm really being pulled towards Wiard synths. The tone, Borg filters and build quality are very, very attractive.

Can someone please tell me what their cv scaling is? Is it 10v per octave like eurorack or is it its own thing like Buchla?

Do they sell their own midi converter?

Thanks!!![/list]

hi, it's 1 volt per octave surely - it puts out 10v (or more) but the scaling is the "standard".

I use mine with a Kenton Pro 2000 (that handles two synths). I've tried polyphonic with it but couldn't get it to work - it should and others have got it working - it might have been the controller I was using at the time). I just use it for pitch and gate but with the Kenton you can have other things like aftertouch, velocity sensitivity etc.

Thanks!

So, I can use a eurorack sequencer with a Wiard system?

I would think so. Only thing to watch for is the gate/ trigger level - I can't remember what it is for Wiard as I set it a long time ago on the Pro 2000.

If you e-mail Cary you will get better the absolute info

oh, saw your second question - no I don't think there is a midi converter they do but you don't really need it as there are so many third party options.

Thanks!

I'm hoping to get a Wiard synth and control it with a DSI pro 2.

Im considering a Keystep for my 300 series setup......but itd be nice if there was a duophonic midi/cv keyboard out there besides that Waldorf euro kb37....i've not been able to find anything.....

Anyone using the keystep with their Wiard300 setup? Or anything better you can recommend? Im trying to have a small controller that I can have clock- synced with an AKai MPC.
