Another example that sometimes paying a visit to a stuffy press conference pays out. The blog ‘Bleepology’ has a scoop on a product called VOLTA from Motu.
The post on Bleepology says this about it all:
“MOTU was showing off something that absolutely blew my mind this morning: Volta.
Itâ€™s a plug-in intended for use with any of their DC-capable audio interfaces (Like, say, a Traveller or 828), it allows multi-channel PitchCV/Gate/ControlCV out to your modular system. Its interface is like a grid for your IO, each output is a box in the grid. Into the grid, you place (drag and drop-style) the voltage source for that output. You may choose from items as mundane as the channelâ€™s midi input (for things like note data), or as crazy as step/trigger sequencers, LFOs, clock sources, etc.
This all sounds pretty neat, right? But wait, it gets betterâ€¦
Thereâ€™s a built-in calibration and scaling tool, so that it can automatically determine the proper CV scale to generate musical pitches from your possibly-less-than-perfect analog oscillators.
Now how much would you pay?
They couldnâ€™t quote an exact price, but they said to expect in the $250 range. Of course there is the cost of a MOTU audio interface if you donâ€™t already have one. That said, killer product for analog geeks like me, way to go MOTU, I know this must have been a hard one to pitch to management.”
We have to agree this looks quite interesting. Let’s hope Motu will enlighten us soon on more and complete details.
