Ok, time to deal with external CV modulation! USTA features two independent CV input, whose signal can be internally routed to several destinations (independently per track, of course). Here we take a look at the Pitch Shift destination: the incoming voltage is used to shift the notes. Remember two things: 1) the resulting pitch is always quantized to the scale in use, and 2) you can change the pitch multiple times WITHIN the stage!
- 1 USTA
- 1 SAPÈL
- 1 FALISTRI
- 1 FUMANA
- 1 333
- 1 CGM
- External effects (optional)
- Set up a basic USTA patch (in this case, we are using something similar to the patch of the Raw CV technique).
- Patch SAPÈL’s main clock output to USTA’s clock input.
- Set the track to work with External Clock.
- Patch SAPÈL’s N+1 output (of the same section as the clock) to USTA’s CVA input.
- Enter the Track Menu.
- Scroll until the PitchShift menu item and assign it to CVA.
(Now the N+1 voltages generate by SAPÈL are randomly shifting the pitch up by one or more octaves, still locked to the main tempo.)
- Try other random sources, such as the 2n.
(You will notice that the random pitch shifts are always quantized to the scale in use.)
- Finally, try to use a modulation voltage with no clock relation.
(You will notice that the pitch shift happens even within the stage: this may be extremely interesting for modulation purposes!)
