Re: VM 960 volts-to-note ready reckoner

Just set up a separate VCO with keyboard control, real or virtual. Then play the note you want on that VCO and turn the sequencer knob controlling the VCO of interest to match. Very fast (especially with the quantized output), and better still, no thinking or dead reckoning required. --mb That woul...

First, let me say that the quantized knob not hitting the top note has been fixed and will be released soon.

Re: VM 960 volts-to-note ready reckoner (X2 multiplier)

These semitone-to-volts conversions are required if you use the X2 row multiplier setting: (0.0416667 V per semitone) 1st octave 00 = 0.000 = C 01 = 0.042 = C# 02 = 0.083 = D 03 = 0.125 = Eb 04 = 0.167 = E 05 = 0.208 = F 06 = 0.250 = F# 07 = 0.292 = G 08 = 0.333 = Ab 09 = 0.375 = A 10 = 0.417 = Bb 1...

VM 960 volts-to-note ready reckoner

When attempting to program actual musical notes on the VM 960 sequencer, I found it handy to have this conversion table lying about. Because the oscillators are 1V/oct, each semitone shift upwards requires an additional voltage of 1/12 V, or 0.08333333 V. Therefore, if you count 0.000V as being the ...
