  GMS-742 MIDI TO CV CONVERTER
MULTI-CHANNEL CAPABLE MIDI TO VOLTAGE CONVERSION
 
     
 
 
    The MIDI to CV Converter module is designed to convert MIDI note commands into corresponding analog voltage level outputs to be used by devices such as voltage controlled oscillators in analog synthesizers. In addition to a changing analog voltage on one channel, the module can also supply a second analog voltage corresponding to the MIDI velocity information. This analog voltage can be used to vary the response of an envelope generator to allow the channels dynamics to be controlled by keyboard velocity information.    
 
    BASIC FUNCTIONS    
 
    The GMS-742 MIDI to CV converter contains two complete converter channels, each channel capable of producing two analog outputs and two gate outputs. When a two channel mode is selected, one analog channel will produce the voltage equivalant of the input MIDI note value, one analog channel will produce the voltage equivalant of the MIDI velocity value, one gate channel will produce a gate signal for the duration of the MIDI note on to note off time, and one gate channel will produce a 25 millisecond trigger pulse.    
 
    POLYPHONIC OPERATING MODES
  • Two channel with gate and trigger
  • Three or four channels with gate
  • Two channels with seperate sequential MIDI channel numbers
  • Four channels with seperate sequential MIDI channel numbers
   
 
         
 
    ADDITIONAL FEATURES    
 
    A front panel selector allows setting the base MIDI channel on which the module listens. If the setting is not modified by system commands received on the port, the channel also serves as the default analog output channel. Depending on the selected operating mode, additional channels are assigned following the channel selected on the front panel switch.    
 
    The MIDI clock on the input channel is divided internally and output on the MIDI CLOCK output jack. Divisor ratio set by turning mode switch to the desired ratio and pressing the front panel set divisor pushbutton.
