Cheapest CV controller!

Post by audibleobsession » Mon Nov 01, 2010 9:55 pm

With the economy gone to crap, I'm not able to afford the Moog Theremin Pro with CV out I've been eyeing for the last year :(

BUT! I've discovered that a simple stereo 1/4" to 1/8" does just fine as a fun little CV controller. I like to run it to the cutoff CV on my Moog LP and tape the 1/8" end down near the mod wheel...nice to tap it rhythmically or press down on it hard and slow for an aggressive and fast sweep! Just a little trick I thought I'd share!

Very fun and a seriously silly time waster if you turn it into a little game, like I did a few nights ago ;)
