Wow, looks like what everybody was waiting for for years! hyper


Quote:
CVpal is an upcoming DIY kit from Mutable Instruments. It is a simple 2-channel USB->CV/Gate interface.

Conversion modes:

* Single channel with velocity and "bonus stage" square digital oscillator.
* Dual monophonic.
* Duophonic.
* CC to CV conversion.
* 4-Triggers.

Other features:

* Only 26 parts to solder, good project for beginners!
* USB-powered.
* Available in mini plexi case or 4HP eurorack panel.
* OS X > 10.6.4, iOS or Linux.

Will still keep the MCV4 as this has no midi out.
DonKartofflo
holy cow, somebody is working a lot right now. woah
odecahedron
i could use the shit out of that

No windows driver, or none needed?

Ios suport we're not worthy

UNSTOPPABLE

I was obsessing over this the other day. I hope it is USB standard compliant (whatever that is called) so that you can plug usb midi keyboards straight in!

on fire! Dead Banana

won't run on windows without an useable amount of latency afaik.

I would also like to know if it's class compliant. If so, it may work with the USB port on the Cirklon.

Linux support usually means the hardware is class compliant - very few vendors create their own Linux drivers.

Yeah that's kinda weird. It's either class compliant (and therefore needs no Windows drivers), or it's not (and the drivers are buggy).. hmmm.....
wavehead
this is perfect!

now i've got to start looking at ipad apps for control surface, keyboard and sequencing..

i wonder if you can use two of these at the same time on the computer? would make more sense to just use ES, but still intriguing.
vurma
Incrediburruh! Finally a way to interface Overtone with my modular.
twincities
skipping midi altogether should let it run OSC protocol max/msp stuff, right? awesome.
oootini
it's usb midi.

look for the thread 'DIY treat' on the MI forum for details...
twincities
ahhh, i see. seems silly to force the midi protocol when nothing ever touches a din cable, no? guess it's more plug and play for people who don't want to run max/msp shells and stuff to transport midi from their daw.
vurma
If its a dual usb->cv, why not let one of the channels accept OSC and the other MIDI protocol?
radiokoala
So it doesn't work on windows and my interest is officially lost.

Could be a good reason to try out Ubuntu! ^^

Whoa...before everyone gets too disappointed by what it can't do....


Whole idea of this was a quick'n'easy beginners DIY kit (target price 40 Euros) which gives people a useful alternative to a commercial USB-MIDI-CV interface-skiff friendly and USB-bus powered!! It will be open source so not too hard to have a go adapting the firmware yourself.

It will be class compliant.

Olivier goes into a lot of detail about it and why it doesn't work too well with Windows here:

http://www.mutable-instruments.net/forum/discussion/3426/news-on-the-d iy-treat/p1

Basically it's using an ATTiny to run everything, including USB. This means the USB has to run at low-speed, but the code "accelerates" data transfer beyond the low-speed standard to overcome latency problems. This is OK with iOS and OSX after 10.6, but not current Windows versions. It could be possible for someone to overcome this-there are proprietary Windows drivers for AVR-based USB-MIDI interfaces.

USB doesn't work like that - it needs a USB host. But yes, you could plug this and your USB keyboard into your computer (or a USB hub on your computer).

On the contrary, there is lots of MIDI support (in DAWS, etc) and that software doesn't care what the physical layer is. So why run it over a DIN cable at 31,250 bits per second when you can run it over USB at 12 megabits a second instead?
