However, I want to make sure I don't overload the Werkstatt. The Beatstep puts out an 8 volt gate signal. The Werkstatt is expecting 5 volts max. Also, the CV out of the Beatstep is 0-7 volts. Again the Werkstatt is looking for -5 to +5 volts max.
I found some simple circuits on the Music From Outer Space site that should help interfacing the Werkstatt (or any synth) with higher voltages: http://www.musicfromouterspace.com/anal ... FACING.php.
I have some parts coming in from Mouser soon and will test then.

Be sure to follow the calibration procedure in the manual for the CV expander in order achieve proper pitch tracking. This should be done on a per-instrument basis as pitch voltage from instrument to instrument varies. Your Beatstep may not be outputting the voltage required to trigger the Werkstatt Gate. Set the VCA to the ON position and see if it tracks the pitch. If this works, you may need to step the voltage out of your Beatstep up.
Hope this helps,
