Likewise! Is that something that can be implemented?

Oh, and edit: couldn't the M Audio Uno or something similar also work to get the Octatrack in?

I believe so as these types of USB/midi interfaces are class compliant.

can it hold voltages? i'm wondering if it could be used with like 1 knob and 2 buttons moving up and down to set the levels to set things precisely. then maybe the clock in could move through the outs and turn them on and off..

oh, interpolation between outs? like set 1+8 and it fills in the rest linearly or with a curve?

anyway. seems really cool! i can imagine a lot of uses outside of euro too, like cv ins on pedals or click in on drum machines.

Me too!

IF I can clock Op-1 using this (have Op-1 synced to my modular) I am definitely buying this!

Im a bit slow i guess, but can you connect the FH-1 directly to a computer via usb and then control the module from a DAW?

Yes, in the same way you can connect a iPad (as in my demo videos).

Odd, I assumed this wasn't possible due to the fact that it was never mentioned once!
This would be its #1 selling point, and suggest you explicitly highlight this.

Thanks for the reply os. I watched your video. Just started to wonder about that connectvity thingie you used to connect the ipad, if it had some special functionality needed. But then its just there to make the physical connection possible :)

Was reading about Maschinio earlier, and am wondering if that library would be applicable/adaptable to the FH-1's hardware platform. At the very least, all the annoying work of reverse engineering NI's messaging structure has been/is being done.

Maschine's hardware + 8 CV outs.... :banana:

Os, are you planning on making the FH-1 reprogrammable in a way similar to the Disting? Don't expect you to spend all your time writing a completely alternate firmware, but would be cool if the opportunity was available to somebody else. Just idle dreams really.

I'm considering open sourcing the whole thing. Even if not, software updates via a USB flash drive are possible, so if someone does do a custom version it will be easier to distribute.

Already have a CV pal but I will definitively switch with that one. I hope external controller use will be as easy to use as they said.

There's already an expander module, the FHX-1, with eight more outputs on it--and up to seven (!) can be added to a single FH-1.
Looking forward to hearing more details on the functionality of the FH-1...
