Re: Werkstatt+EHX 8 Step program= Moog Mother 32?

Thanks for all the responses guys! I just got a confirmation that my Mother is en route and I'm super psyched. I think I'm going to hold off on a midi controller at the moment and see what I can do with just the mother and my Werkstatt.

Everyone seems to love the BSP but I don't want to drop that much on a controller just yet. Are there any other recommendations for a similar midi controller? What are people's thoughts/experiences with the novation launchkey 25 or the Akai mpk25? Are they decent or would I be better to shell out for the BSP? :?:

Arturia is coming out w a Keystep controller in March/April. It has midi, CV, an arpegiator, and a polyphonic sequencer. It is supposed to cost around $125.

Can you expand on this? Apologies if poor interpretation on my part, but there isn't a "CV Out" on the Mother 32 (literally speaking), nor is there a "CV In" on the Werkstatt.

Yes it will. Just run a cable from the CV output on the Mother to the CV input on the Werkstatt. This is where the mini-phone extension comes in real handy.

Sorry not to answer to this, But I’d like to bring some info on this older post:

jsharpphoto wrote:The EHX 8-Step can only be a modulation source, because as far as I know, it doesn't send gate CV. It's just sending a generic voltage that's fine for things like frequency cutoff, but not consistent enough for pitch, and you'd have to get a gate signal from something else.

The EHX 8SP features a sync mode that allows to go through the steps thanks to a gate signal input. This means that you can use a common gate generator as envelope trigger AND 8SP clock.

Plus the 8SP circuit board allows a mod for gate output. This can be easily found on the web.

Now it's true that it is a bit rough for pitch modulation, but as it can store presets, well, it can do the job.
