Analogue Systems - RS-140: Eurorack MIDI to CV Converter
The RS-140 converts MIDI messages into control voltages and due its numerous analog putouts it gives you plenty of possibilities to control your modular system with MIDI. Besides the usual CV and gate outputs if has in addition flexible controller outputs and its big backlit display and four function buttons make it easy to use.
In the CV menu you can set the voltage characteristic of the CV outputs (either 1V/octave or 1.02V/oct as the Minimoog had), the note range of the pithcbend wheel and the modulation depth of the internal LFO. This LFO can be synchronized to MIDI Clock, has several wave forms and MIDI-controlled level. Both CV outputs carry the same signal and they are active buffered.
Each trigger socket can output a gate, a trigger or a S-trigger (for old Moogs), either as multi trigger or single trigger. Alternatively you can output the MIDI clock that´s rate can be divided down in 9 settings.
Controller: each controller output can be assigne to one of 128 controlChage commands, the pitch bend wheel, velocity or aftertouch (plus the internal LFO for controller output 1). Besides that you can set one of four output voltage ranges (0 bis +5V; -5V bis 0V; -2,5V bis 2,5V und -5V bis +5V).
All settings can be saved in the non-volatile memory and you have 64 memory slots. Each of them can be recalled by ControlChange messages.
Usage with Eurorack:
Analogue Systems' modules are designed solely for use in cases and cabinets made by Analogue Systems. Through the use of adaptors or adaptor cables, however, it is possible to connect them to Eurorack cases.
Should you chose to use an Analogue Systems module in an Eurorack case, please note that the warranties are thus void and the use occurs at your own risk! If the module is plugged in incorrectly and therefore damaged the customer has to bear any costs for repair and shipping!
Because of the different position of the mounting holes there will be a gap of 0.5HP (= 2.5 mm) when mounting an Analogue Systems module next to a Eurorack module. Take this into consideration when planning your system. Gaps can be covered with 1.5HP wide blank panels by Doepfer.
