The UniSyn converts audio from any monophonic source to CV and MIDI. The UniSyn also creates a dedicated sine wave, as well as filtered square or sawtooth waves.
Other features include a +24v phantom power option, an automatic gain control (AGC) to eliminate the trouble of tuning the input preamp gain, optional 3:1 compression in the front end, a sustain pedal input, and firmware upgrade capability via SD card.
Here are some examples, demonstrating the capability of Second Sound’s audio to CV/MIDI technology:
In the first example, audio from a trumpet is used to control an Oberheim OB-6.
In the next example, violin is used to play both the internal synth and to control a Moog Mother-32:
