Anyone have recommendations for a CV to midi converter to pair with the ER-101?
A while ago I had a doepfer A-192-2, which I had trouble with because the gate would arrive slightly before the pitch cv, causing it to send the wrong note. I didn’t try it with the 101, though, just a Rene.
Interesting. Are you trying to use the ER-101 to control an external keyboard?
Yep! My modular is fairly small (just two voices) so I’d like to bring in an external synth or two.
I ordered this module: Expert Sleepers CVM-8 CV to MIDI/I2C Converter plus an expansion for MIDI jacks. Actually in the second video on that page he explicitly mentions the timing issue with Rene, so I think this should cover it
Update. I just set up the CVM-8 with the ER-101. The 101 requires a 1ms gate delay to work reliably (you set that up in CVM-8 editor). The default 0.5ms gate delay causes repeated or wrong notes. I haven’t tried how the CVM-8 reacts to smoothed voltages. Based on the 0.5ms gate delay results, I suspect it won’t translate smoothing into pitch bend.
