k1600 midi converter
price : $399.00
eurorack midi converter
the combination of midi and analog offers the modular synth player incredible flexibility and control. although analog voltages are the preferred method for carrying many kinds of signals, midi offers powerful
integration with computers and a wide variety of controllers, keyboards and other equipment. the k1600 midi converter provides 10 outputs in the analog domain. two pairs of cv and gate outputs provide high
resolution note control, four trigger outputs allow analog drum modules to be used with midi drum machines, and the clock and reset outputs enable midi control over analog clock-based devices such as
if you are looking for a way to control two or more oscillators via midi for playing big fat analog chords, the k1600 can take you there. its two cv/gate outputs can work in split keyboard or duo-phonic mode.
but if you install multiple k1600s in your system, you can support 4, 6, 8 or more voices of polyphony simply by daisy-chaining the modules together. the intelligent voice-priority algorithm makes multiple
units behave as one. so stop thinking of modular synthesis as monophonic... polyphony is closer than you think!
the k1600 also acts as an expansion module for other kilpatrick audio modular products which support the internal midi header. this includes the k4815 pattern generator, which contains a full midi
implementation in addition to the existing analog connections.
