This is a quick manual how to install the ModyPoly in an Korg Poly-61M. The existing midi sockets are used, so no new holes have to be drilled. Incomming midi messages are passed to both the original midi implementation and the ModyPoly. Outgoing midi messages will be from ModyPoly only.
We are currently producing a new batch of ModyPoly and Juno-66.
You can pre order now, we will ship as soon as possible.
Will most likely ship not later then mid-May
Currently preparing for Superbooth 2017, hope to see you there!
We are at booth 0305 on the second floor.
Jacob Korn was kind enough to share his documentation of adding midi to the classic Vermona DRM drum machine using the Tubbutec UniPulse interface.
Why would you use the uniPulse for a machine that already has midi? According to Jacob the DRMs original midi has severe timing issues and with the uniPulse it is much tighter.
This guide shows you how to use the Tubbutec uniPulse interface with a Korg Minipops 7.
The config file for the Korg Minipops 7 is here.
– Full velocity control for all 14 instruments
– Velocity controls guiro pitch
– Midi sync (optional)
The image below shows the trigger points. You can solder the uniPulse trigger outs directly to these points. An exception is the Guiro, which is connected to the uniPulse CV-out with an additional diode.
The SH-1oh1 µTune is a special edition of the Tubbutec SH-1oh1. It has all the features of the SH-1oh1 but also:
- Microtuning with high resolution
- Upload up to 31 custom scales via midi sysex. For example using Scala.
- Switch scales live
- Includes a scale editor! For each key you can set base note, coarse and fine pitch via midi CC. Save your custom scale when satisfied.
- Export scales via midi-sysex, or send them to other synths
- Custom tuning available on CV-out (5 octaves only)
The SH-1oh1 µTune special edition is hand assembled and tested in our workshop.
The user manual can be found here: SH-1oh1 µTune user manual (PDF) (Chapter 8 describes µTune features)
The installation manual can be found here: SH-1oh1 µTune installation manual (PDF)
You can order the SH-1oh1 µTune in our shop.
