Mutable Instruments CVpal

To sync my studio computer with my Eurorack modular set up I use an Innerclock Sync-Gen IILS. It’s a beautiful and amazingly built module but by no means is it inexpensive. Expert Sleepers also has a group of modules and software you can use. This week Mutable Instruments released CVpal. It is a CV to MIDI module kit (you have to build it yourself) for 40 Euros. I bought one to get my Macbook Pro in sync with a second “spare” row of modules I have. I am really excited to see how inexpensive this is. If you add 11 Euros to your order you they will send you a small plexiglass case for the module making it self contained. Once I have it put together I will report back here to let you know how well it works.

“The CVpal features a large palette of control modes – monophonic with velocity and extra square oscillator, monophonic with clock outputs, duophonic, dual monophonic, or even quad trigger conversion! Its 12-bit DAC with an 8-point software calibration curve makes it more accurate than more expensive products. A simple stand-alone case is also available for the CVpal – making it useful outside of the modular – with a stompbox or a desktop analog synth for example.” – mutable-instruments.net

Grids and Jupiter Storm

Here is a very pretty and nice sounding video demo of the Mutable Instruments Grids, Hexinverter Jupiter Storm, Tiptop Audio CP909 Clap, Cwejman BLD, Innerclock Sync-Gen IIls and more. Chris Whitten has a nice selection of modules don’t you think?
