Using MIDI CC/Minitaur editor to set 2nd VCO up 7 Semitones

Post by m_sternum » Mon Jan 04, 2021 5:35 pm

Hi, is it possible to offset the 2nd oscillator on a Minitaur by a set amount using MIDI CC or the like? Would love to be able to set the 2nd Oscillator as a perfect 7 semitones from the first. Thank you

Yes, you can do it with the editor or by sending the relevant control change message from something else.
The manual tells you what cc’s are assigned to the Minitaurs parameters.

The Minitaur manual has this information:

VCO 2 FREQ (CC# 17):
Sets the frequency offset of VCO 2 from VCO 1. The offset range is +/-1octave. Center position tunes VCO 2 in unison with VCO 1. NOTE: If playing between notes 60 and 72, the pitch of VCO 2 is limited to note 72 (C4)regardless of this control setting.

I guess since the oscillators are analogue, you have to try the value for Pitch +7 yourself?
( & please send us interested parties the value if you have found it)

Yes! Thanks so much. Just tested it out and for me it seems like a value of 37 on CC#17 is pretty much +7 semitones from Osc 1 (off by a couple of cents but sounds great). FYI for anyone on Ableton this Max for live device is perfect for this: https://maxforlive.com/library/device/2560/cc-map8

Thanks again

Correction - I think that value places OSC 2 under OSC in pitch. Was tuning against C so was looking out for G but wasn't listening properly
