ADDAC System Voltage Controlled Computer For Eurorack Modular Synthesizers

ADDAC System has published a dedicated website for its Voltage Controlled Computer, a line of Eurorack modules designed to create flexible programmable modular synthesizer microcontroller.

The VCC is intended to be a “Swiss Army Knife” module.

Built around the Arduino framework, it sports an Atmega2560 IC, USB communication and an 8 channel 16-bit Digital to Analog converter.

It ships with a standard set of applications that let the module perform a variety of functions, ranging from complex random functions to quantizing. You can also create your own programs,

Expansion modules offer additional functionality, including:

  • WIFI connectivity
  • MIDI connectivity
  • Extra VCC Gate, Manual or CV I/O
  • One powerful feature is that it can be connected to a computer through USB and interfaced with Pure Data, Max/Msp, Live, IanniX, or your favorite software using OSC or MIDI.
  • iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch connectivity is also easily achievable through the combination of the ADDC007 Ethernet Module and a wireless router.

This paper (.pdf), presented at the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression, offers an introduction to the concepts behind the VCC.
