Fruity Voltage Controller
Fruity Voltage Controller controls up to 8 channels of Control Voltage (CV) hardware. CV is an analog method of controlling synthesizers, drum machines and other similar equipment. The CV typically controls pitch and the gate signal controls note on and off. The Left and Right channels of a DC coupled Audio Interface can be used to separately control two CV modules or different parameters of the same module, such as pitch and gate (as mentioned above). 4 pairs of outputs are controllable. Normally you would use an instance of Voltage Controller for each voice module in your setup.
NOTE: This plugin is NOT designed to be used with an Audio Interface connected to speakers. Rather, the signal from Fruity Voltage Controller is sent to an audio interface connected to analog controlled audio devices. Most audio interfaces can't output fixed DC (Direct Current) voltages and are designed to output Alternating Current (AC), signals. Your audio interface must be designed to operate in DC coupled mode. Naturally, any Audio outputs, re-purposed for CV control will be connected to your CV hardware and no longer available for audio duties.
Controlling external CV hardware
When the Voltage Controller receives a note from the Piano roll, it will output a voltage on the Audio Interface output.
By default, the Main Outputs are used. You can assign 3 extra pairs of outputs by clicking Out 2 to 4 to expose additional pairs of Left and Right CV controls.
The Left and Right panels contain identical settings.
NOTE: Channel Output = Scale * ( Mod Source + Offset).
There are 4 pages of Left/Right stereo outputs. By default the Main Outputs are used. To assign three additional pairs of CV outputs, click Tabs Out 2, Out 3 and Out 4. Each has a unique set of Left and Right CV controls. Set the Mixer Track offset for each Output with the field to the right of the tabs. You can also use Settings > Automap outputs from the top panel.
NOTE: All 4 control pages will respond to the notes in the associated Piano roll, these are not independent in this respect. For independent note control use additional instances cf Fruity Voltage Controller.
