Pmfoundations has introduced Midi-Seq-8, a Eurorack Android to analog synth interface; and a companion Android app, MIDI Sequencer.
The Interface is sold as a full kit, consisting of a set of 2 high quality PCBs, front panel, all basic and precision components and a pre-programmed PIC processor.
The developer says that “The Midi-Seq-8 delivers the convenience of a smartphone or tablet-driven sequencer that directly controls your analog monophonic synthesizer from your Android device.”
- 8 MIDI channels supported which can drive 8 synth voices
- Play your own MIDI compositions on your synth from your phone
- Create and play CV sequences up to 16 steps on 8 channels
- Gate or Trigger mode
- Adjustable Clock in BPM
- Start / Stop /Rewind / Step
- 8HP wide
The module connects to your Android device using a micro USB cable. It uses a PIC 24 bit microprocessor to convert MIDI messages from the Android app into digital codes which are then converted into gate/trigger and control voltages for 8 channels with TI DACs. These are buffered with precision TI op amps, providing precise tracking over three octaves and to within 0.01V over 5 octaves.
