Author serge controller with euro
harolddonnelly
Hi i was looking at this controller is seems really interesting

http://www.serge-fans.com/newpics/panel_tkb_150dpi.jpg

would this be able to work with a euro rack set up? or do the voltages not really work?

thanks

its a serge touch sequencer, you can get it to work with a euro *whatever* of course it just takes some cabling transmofgofacation.

from my understaing serge is 1 volt/octave so it should be no problem, its just getting the cabling (banana -> 1/8 and vice versa) that will be the problem.

the problem is minor btw! smile

good luck and welcome to the forum.

*edit*

makenoise format jumber should be all you need.
harolddonnelly
ok rad thanks.

Yeah im really new to all this stuff, and i'm just kind of exploring all possibilities.

going to start a euro system soon. more questions to come haha

thanks.

I use it with Euro, Frac and Modcan. No issues.

As a side point since the voltage out is not quantitized you can just as well call it 1 volt per octave as you can 1.2 or Hz/V for that matter. The knobs just vary the voltage coming out. It's not going to step to scales by itself.

It's not essential, but depending on your technique if you don't have a Quantitizer module for your modular you might want one or a couple if you do multiple CVs out for pitch, like by rows.

Also since you aren't dealing with audio, just CV, you need not worry all that much about the bananas. You could get a readymade interface on a panel. But you could probably get away with just wiring a banana to the tip on a 1/8th cable. It's not the perfect way to do things but it will most likely work fine.

Actually, you will need to have both system grounded together. That is the purpose of the Black Banana at the bottom of the Format Jumbler. Without a system wide, shared ground reference, you will have problems interfacing.

with regards to the Quantitizer.

Do Quantitizers take the voltages and correct them into semitones? does it work with rhythms as well? like Quantizing them to 8th notes or 16th notes?

In application would you run it before a step sequencer? and things like that to make it output a scale?

what other applications have you seen them used for?

thanks, sorry about all the questions.

a quantizer in an analogue rig does not work like, for instance, the quantize function in Ableton Live.

It is to correct "pitch", or more correctly, continuous voltages into discrete steps. Sometimes just semitones, but it could also be forcing notes into a major scale, a locrian mode, a custom pitch sequence, depending on the functionality of the quantizer.
A unit like a bit crusher for instance the 189-1 from Doepfer) can also be considered a quantizer, although not the most... traditional one at that wink

For "correcting timing" you'll want something like an AND gate, but it's definitely tricky...
harolddonnelly
ok great thanks!

is there a difference between a gate and a trigger? or do they have the same application?
wetterberg
a trigger is just a quick pulse to start something, like an attack-decay generator. I guess these are typically 1-10ms long... real short.

A gate can be however long you'd like it, like when you hold down your keyboard - doesn't turn off until you want it to.

ok thanks
