CV to Resistance, or how to pitch the Monotribe
While I'm very buisy at the moment and still don't have the time to draw the schematics for my Monotribe Pitch control Mod, here is a short explanation of how to get CV turned into resistance and use it in parallel to the Monotribes own Ribbon Controller, that is nothing else than a 10K pot.
Maybe the best source for understanding how you can change CV to resistance is this page: http://www.midibox.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=midiboxfx_-_midifiying_analog_gear
I used the most simple way explained here. That is this one taken from www.midibox.org:
I think that the vactrol method is a better choice for that, because it's more safe for the Monotribe circuit, but I had none, so i decided to use this method and it worked out nicely for me. I connected the monotribe Ribbon Controller connections to this schematic. The pot seen here i replaced with a 1K resistor.
The Monotribes Ribbon Controller is the same as in the Monotron, so if you want to find out how it is connected, you can yheck out the officialy released schematic of the monotron here:
When i'll get my Doepfer LFO, i will build up the CV control for the monotribe once again and draw the schematics and post it on this blog. Sorry that you have to wait, but time is very short at the moment.
