Trouble mapping cv to freq/hz values


#1

until recently i guess i never thought to try mapping a cv input to an oscillator unit’s frequency or a filter unit’s frequency… i’m noticing that when i map a linear 5v offset to one of these parameters the gain options are quite different, spanning 20 to 5000. i can’t seem to get a nice clean linear sweep with my analog offset.

can someone help me understand what is different when working with these parameters? i have a feeling this topic has been covered before, but searching didn’t turn up any results.

thanks!

Oh! I forgot I’m supposed to use the 1v/oct input. Duh.

Yup! :wink:

f0 is the linear input.
V/oct is the exponential input.

There is some explanation here:

But feel free to ask if anything is still not clear.
