This utility modules provides switchable discrete CVs with useful intervals such as :

  • octaves; eleven 1V steps from 0V to 10V  (useful to control the yusynth VCOs which have no octave range switches);
  • semitones; eleven 1/12 V steps from -0.4166V to 0.4166V (useful to detune a VCO with semitone intervals)]
OCTAVE VALUE SEMITONE VALUE
0 0 V -5 -0.4166 V
1 1 V -4 -0.3333 V
2 2 V -3 -0.2500 V
3 3 V -2 -0.1666 V
4 4 V -1 -0.0833 V
5 5 V 0 0 V
6 6 V +1 0.0833 V
7 7 V +2 0.1666 V
8 8 V +3 0.2500 V
9 9 V +4 0.3333 V
10 10 V +5 0.4166 V

These stepped CVs are available independently on three voices and for each voice three buffered outputs are provided in order to drive more than one module (these are not multiples but true electrically separated and buffered outputs).

Also for each voice, an external CV can be summed to the stepped voltages. These inputs are intended for connecting external controllers such as a keyboard or a sequencer. Note that the input of voices 2 and 3 are defaulted to the previous input. For example if one connects a keyboard CV to IN #1 then this CV is echoed on the two others voices. But if one connects three different CVs on the three inputs, then each voice is only driven by the corrsponding input.

IMPORTANT NOTE : R7 must be 156K. Because there is no standard value for this resistor, we will have to use a trick. 156k can be obtain by connecting a 180K resistor and a 1.2M  resistor in parallel. To do so, install the 180K resistor as shown on the component overlay and solder the 1.2M on the track side to the same pads as for the 180K resistor.

  • Connect the DVM to one of the outputs of channel/voice #1 (use 10mV/20mV DC range)
  • Adjust T22 such that you measure 0mV +/- 0.2mV at the output.
  • Connect the DVM to one of the outputs of channel/voice #2 (use 10mV/20mV DC range)
  • Adjust T24 such that you measure 0mV +/- 0.2mV at the output.
