Following from Ableton launching their CV Tools update, Moog has released 5 videos using their Mother 32 and DFAM synths and the various tools in the update. Control Voltage, abbreviated CV, is an analog method for controlling electronic hardware instruments. Developed for synthesizers in the 1960s by both Bob Moog and Don Buchla (working independently on opposite coasts of the United States), CV empowered early electronic musicians to create organic evolving electronic patches. Think of it as early MIDI. Below, you'll be able to watch the videos taken at the Moog factory in Ashville North Carolina.
Mother-32 | Modulate your synth with CV Tools
Modulate your Eurorack format synthesizer using CV Tools’ CV LFO device and a DC-coupled audio interface. You can call up multiple CV modulators on a single audio track, stacking CV LFOs and Modulation Envelopes to create expressive analog modulations.
DFAM | Build a synth drum rack using CV Tools
Follow along to learn how to extract audio from a CV Tools sync’d Eurorack format synthesizer to design your own custom drum rack of synthesized drum samples.
DFAM | Calibrate Ableton’s CV Tools to your synth
Learn how to calibrate the CV Instrument device in Ableton’s CV Tools to control the oscillators of your Eurorack format synthesizer for spot-on tracking across multiple octaves.
DFAM | Play your synth from Push using CV Tools
Learn how to use the CV Instrument device Ableton’s CV Tools pack to control your Eurorack format synthesizer from Ableton using analog Pitch and Gate control voltages.
DFAM | How to Tempo Sync your synth with Ableton Using CV Tools
Learn how to set up your Eurorack format synthesizer as an External Audio instrument in Ableton Live while syncing to Ableton’s clock using the CV Clock Out device from Ableton’s CV Tools.
